Political Cartoons

Somehow I have always enjoyed looking at political cartoons, even when I was very young. Lately we have had our eyes full of Trump's cartoons. Have you seen this political cartoon? I wish I were that talented to think of those funny drawings. Do you enjoy reading the cartoons?

We have a cartoonist in our local paper that only does political cartoons, and he is always featured in the Sunday paper. He's become quite popular for his humor towards local, state and national politics. Most people (no matter which side of the political spectrum they fall on) get a chuckle out of them, and see the humor regardless if they agree or not, but some people really get bent out of shape about his drawings. They write nasty letters to the editor, and things like that. You can tell that they are really offended by the political cartoons. I mean, come on, have a sense of humor and understand that we all need to laugh a little more.

And we sure need to get a laugh at politics as it is "laughable".

@marlina I think that's what keeps me from going insane, or crying hysterically at the state of our national politics. Just give me something to laugh at and I'll be okay!

@marlina Some cartoons are so funny, shame that finally Italian politicians are not funny at all, only liars.

Cartoons and comedy can get away with a lot of stuff that would cause a furore if said in a serious manner. I think they have a part to play in shaping people's opinions.

I LOVE political cartoons. I used to read Doonesbury all the time. He was able to make fun of the president's of both parties, whenever they did something outlandish. Apparently, they have given him plenty of material to work with over the years. Trump is a comedian's dream!
