Excellent ’toon by Rob Rogers, and totally original, but in its own unique way, makes the same point that Mike Luckovich made with a very different ’toon so, with apologies, posting a similar comment:
Amazing that, for all her complicity with Trump in so many of his worst crimes against humanity (“just following orders” — didn’t work for Nazis, won’t work for Trumpers), she is forced out because even she couldn’t stomach tightening the screws of evil even further?
After months of abuse and belittlement, she finally gets to the her breaking point when Trump’s evil is too much even for her?
Several points on which Kirstjen Nielsen and Trump had differing views most recently when Trump demanded clearly illegal actions and Nielsen was not willing to violate explicit laws or court orders:
• Trump wants to double down on returning to the policy of putting MORE babies in cages in direct violation of an explicit federal court order from a REPUBLICAN-appointed judge (hence Mike Luckovich’s excellent ’toon)
• Trump wanted to block all asylum requests, in direct violation of law
• Days after Nielsen completed the monumental task of working out arrangements with the governments of Honduras and Guatemala for directing aid towards projects to provide security and safety for indigenous and other targeted populations to remove their incentives to leave, Trump through it all out and decided to simply cut off all aid, a horribly counterproductive move which will have the adverse outcome of forcing MORE desperate refugees to flee violence and instability that was CAUSED BY THE UNITED STATES.
