Capitol Trump Trials Through the Eyes of Political Cartoonists

Capitol Trump Trials Through the Eyes of Political Cartoonists

Okay okay everybody settle down. We’ve got a lot of excited people yelling things and making huge pronouncements about things – most full of hysteria tinged with paranoiac visions. When it all gets to be too much for us, we like to see how cartoonists are capturing the current zeitgeist, and making something funny. It’s a talented group of artists who can condense complexity and extract the humorous essence of a situation. Also, so far our move toward the right, the far-right, and the fascist has not led us to have leaders that outlaw cartoons. Fingers crossed.

Know Satire, Know Sanity

Sometimes satire is the sharpest tool in our collection of citizen’s weapons to cut through the noxious cloud of rhetoric and fear in the current mis/disinformation war. When talking about topics like systemic racism, state violence, fascism, oligarchal looting, equality, civics, journalism, political accountability – we all value the skills of artists to shine light from a different angle.

Here are a few of the current wits and cutting illustrators who are helping us clarify the world.
