Mexican Standoff


I’m drawing this cartoon with the supposition in mind that Trump will actually go to Mexico and not weasel out at the last moment. With Trump, you never know, so if he changes his mind, let’s just say that this cartoon depicts what MIGHT have happened.

The latest ABC/Washington Post poll shows Trump and Hillary are the two most unpopular candidates to run for president in 30 years, beating out Pres. George H. W. Bush’s numbers when he failed to win re-election. This is mostly about trust and the voters don’t trust either candidate. This is a good thing.

We the peeps have to stop making trust an issue with politicians. The most important issue is whether we think they can get the job done on our behalf. Anyone who trusts a politician is setting themselves up for a Humpty Dumpty fall. You can, however, trust a politician to do one thing. They will do whatever it takes––legal or illegal, ethical or unethical––to hold on to the reins of power.
