Maybe that will be the second “big, beautiful wall” Trump will build
I usually like Toles’ political cartoons. Sometimes he does one that is just plain outstanding. This is one of those cartoons.
Very well said.
No, Mr Stiglich. Liberals view George Washington as an imperfect hero. He was a great general, a statesman, a patriot, our first president, a visionary leader and our founding father. Unfortunately, he also owned slaves. Great men are not perfect. I know that is a tough thought for you to comprehend.
It is really unfair of you to criticize Trump for a speech before you have even heard it. For all you know it will be a wonderful, bipartisan speech extolling the long, wonderful history of progress the nation had and it will focus on the years before Trump was president. Just kidding.
This cartoon expresses my thoughts perfectly.
Mr. Bok does have a point. All politicians lie/exaggerate, etc. But any honest observer understands the difference between Trump and most other politicians. The quantity of lies from Mr. Trump is astounding. So often when he speaks there is no connection between truth and what he is saying. I suppose it could be a matter of him having no knowledge about the things he talks about. But that is not an excuse for the president of The United States. Most of the time when he speaks he is either lying or ignorant. I accept either explanation.
Interesting. If he had told it that way I would see nothing wrong with it. Unfortunately, he is a gaffe machine. I do still have a lot of respect for him.
I do not think reparations is a particularly workable idea. But it is so much more complicated than Republicans make it out to be. First of all, legal discrimination continued for almost another hundred years past the end of slavery. That should be considered too. When you think about it that way one understands the idea much better.
The point he made about being able to work with people as objectionable as the segregationists is a good point. If elected, he will have to work with Republicans who are every bit as objectionable. I do take issue with him saying he was called son by the segregationists, not boy. That was an inappropriate thing to say.
