I’m sure the fact that Santa’s naughty list is entirely redacted isn’t a bad sign at all! Mike Flynn gave his prison time to someone else…I wonder who the lucky winner is!?
But you’re right, it’s all the people acknowledging the ever increasing pile of evidence who are delusional!
Another naive cartoon from Mike. Is your 5 year old drawing these?
I really don’t think you’ll like what comes down that chimney.
Donald Jr has admitted colluding with Russian agents. He just says it doesn’t count as collusion. Just like his daddy says all the business deals he tried to make in Russia don’t count as business. And MBS says his body count doesn’t count. And Dumbass Donald agrees with him too.
Wait and see, Mikey, wait and see
Collusion has already been demonstrated. Criminal conspiracy has not been demonstrated. We shall see. I’m not making predictions. Let’s wait and see what Mueller has found out. Meantime, have we fallen so low that anything short of criminal conspiracy is okay?
Poor Mike Lester, he doesn’t believe in Santa Klaus, but does believe in the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. But, then again, of course he does, he’s a Trumpite!
Mueller is doing and will continue to do his job, but what we may see of it is controlled by others (DoJ and Congress). However, the discovery process is going ahead on the suits related to emoluments, and the subpoenas will be coming out. That will be worth watching!
Comment I made to another ’toon 3 days ago: What a tiring ordeal this thing has become. We have half our population convinced the evidence is mounting and Trump will be forced to resign or be impeached, and half convinced the only evidence is against a bunch of Russian nationals (who certainly will not be extradited) and some unrelated misdeeds by minor bit players. Which version of the truth will out?? Is Santa real or a figment of imagination?? Come on, Bob – out with it; I’m almost out of popcorn waiting for the show to start.
As Trump and assorted associates are led away in handcuffs, Mr. Lester will still be drawing cartoons like this. Reality can be a traumatic experiece for some people.
You know what’s really entertaining? Reading a bunch of angry comments from people who don’t know THEY’RE the people staring at the fireplace…Merry Christmas.
Mikey, Mikey, Mikey, do you wake up and immediately think, “What’s the biggest lie I can tell”?
@mlester101 — Your toons are both ‘entertaining and misleading!’ … A “twofer!”
I believe there was Criminal Russian Conspiracy – that doesn’t make it jolly. This was a crime against the United States.
My favorite part of reading a Mike Lester cartoon is knowing that, more often then not, I get to read a Mike Luckovich right after!
Loved Don Bongino’s testimony about this Russian Collusion and SpyGate. Hard to refute facts…unless you attack the facts as being part of the scandal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEUomIB8yMU
Whistling “Holly Jolly Christmas” past the graveyard, Mr. Lester?
Just substitute “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi” for “Jolly Ole St. Russian Collusion” and there you have M.Lester, waiting not so patiently by the fire.
It seemed like something was off with this cartoon, and then it hit me: There is a green tree and a shining sun in the sky outside, but it is Christmas. Of course, this scene could be in a warm climate like Florida, but then why does the home have a fireplace with a complete set of fire tools?
I take no pleasure in fearing that the President of the United States directed his lawyer to commit a felony; I take no pleasure in fearing that the President of the United States was colluding with the Russians; I take no pleasure in the prospect of impeachment hearings. This is not fun. This is not a game. There is credible evidence—and increasing evidence—that the President was involved in very inappropriate and perhaps illegal actions. This is not fun. This is a tragedy for the country. If it’s true, it’s going to be hard for the country to recover. I would much rather have a President like G. W. Bush, whose policies were a disaster, in my opinion, but who had some sense of the dignity and responsibilities of the office. Disagreements we can live with, constant meretricious mendacity should not be acceptable.
^ Beginning to look like Mueller has more than just lumps of coal for #45’s stockings!
[ And how will mlester101 spin these charges … ]
Thank you, lonecat. This is exactly my fear, and the disaster will not be confined to the borders of the USA. I cannot find any evidence of any president so without any appreciation of the office, its dignity and responsibilities in any of the previous 44 who have held this office. At 77, I won’t have to experience much of the fallout, but I sorrow for my grandchildren just starting college at now and in the next few years. What will they have facing them? What opportunities will they have? I have had a wonderful life, but will they and their contemporaries?
Mueller and various reporting have shown that the lieutenants in Trump’s orbit rebuffed precisely zero of the known Russian overtures. In fact, quite the opposite. Each approach was met with enthusiasm, and a request for more.
Given every opportunity, most Trump associates—from Paul Manafort to Donald Trump, Jr. to George Papadopoulos—not only allegedly took every offered meeting, and returned every email or phone call, but appeared to take overt action to encourage further contact. Not once did any of them inform the FBI of the contacts.
