CARTOON: Fake News Warning

Stephen Bowers
Written by Stephen Bowers

I’m having fun watching the pundits and liberals whining about how they missed the election. Also watching the rioters. They are further vindication that liberalism/socialism/commie philosophy is wrong. Evil. Somehow these cretins missed the last century.

Naturally, Obama (who finds it impossible to avoid cameras or any opportunity to pontificate for the benefit of the rest of us deplorable voters in Fly Over Nation) got in front of the cameras in Peru to explain how the election went bad for Hillary because too many people in Fly Over listened to fake news.  With liberal/socialist/commie/pukes the agenda never stops governing their actions. Even when they’ve experienced a sound drubbing. They will have an “explanation” for whatever went wrong. It may be the sheerest crap, but they will say it … and believe it.  (Thus, the cartoon.)

I’m visiting my brother. It’s terrific here. I’ve only seen one Hillary yard sign while here. That was in a small college town, but you know how being in a college program can turn a nice and polite kid into a self-righteous socialist, spouting slogans and baloney. On the other hand, before the election we were driving past a local farmer’s house and I noticed several big signs in the farmer’s front yard saying very unflattering things about Hillary. Very unkind things. I told my brother that the farmer, once the election is over, can remove the signs. (While candid and truthful, they aren’t very attractive lawn ornaments. My taste runs more to plaster gnomes and pink plastic flamingos.) My brother said he thinks the signs may be permanent. They were erected two years ago.  Maybe they’ll be removed now. Maybe only edited.

This morning on Fox News there was a live feed of Obama awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom. It was largely a gathering of Obama’s celebrity shills. I turned it off, but not before telling my brother that one of the Medal recipients was an acquaintance. The guy had cussed me once. In person right after we were introducedFor something I couldn’t helpIt seems I had somehow screwed up a photo shoot for an upcoming article in Architectural Digest or Art In America. Aren’t I bad. So it just got a little more personal for me. Obama admires and lionizes people who would cuss me for something I didn’t do.

I know. My logic is pretty slim. But I like it.

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
