By far, the best ’toon of the day!
My favorite line from JFK came as he was explaining the mission to land humans on the Moon: “We choose to go to the Moon in this decade, and do the other things, not because they are easy but because they are hard.” —John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), 35th US president, speech at Rice University, 1962 Sep. 12
THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENT……the answer: RESIGN!
Sadly, trump is MUCH MORE interested in what he can do TO the country… ANYTHING is fair game, as long as HE makes a profit from it, and SCREW the Constitution!
JFK is asking too much of DJT. If there is no profit in it, it isn’t worth considering and certainly not worth doing.
A far from perfect president but tRump makes him look like an absolute Saint. Why strive for greatness in anything but greed, hatred, and corruption? Because we are better than that!
Trump makes the likes of Andy Jackson and Franklin Pierce look good by comparison.
At least one of the editorial cartoonists remembered this dark day in history.
Trump doesn’t ask, he demands it as if it’s his right.
. . . Putin makes Trump look like his own puppet! :’(
I see some one remembered that Black Friday.
How much better would the U.S. and the world be if JFK had not been assassinated? Many people promote mandatory public service for young people; that service could be in the Peace Corps that KFK started.
Steve portrays JFK pointing with his left hand. He was more likely to have used his right. But since then we’ve had quite a spate of southpaws in the White House: Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.
Thank you. Virtually no one has mentioned JFK today. Unfortunately the forces that killed him now rule pretty much unfettered.
Russia is Trump’s country, he only screws America with GOP congressional lies and Faux News voter support.
Consider the idea that the Republicans were behind the deaths of JFK, RFK and MLK.
They wiped out the left and the field was open for rotten liar Republican Nixon.
“Let’s not get into that Bay of Pigs thing…” Nixon says on one of his tapes.
A very good point, Mr. Benson. JFK worked to get into the Navy, despite already having a bad back. JFK did not set out to be a hero, but he responded to circumstances with both honor and extraordinary effort.
The contrast with Trump (and any number of other politicos) is stark. Thank you for reminding us.
Trump: “I prefer presidents who weren’t assassinated.”
Steve, as usual — Brilliant ♥
I wept on that day 56 years ago, but I have no tears left. I look at Trump, and I just feel hollow. It’s like having already been consigned to Hell with 20 jabbering candidates endlessly self-aggrandizing, proposing unworkable plans and gaffing. They’re making sure we won’t be seeing a JFK equal in my lifetime. I’ll vote blue, but I’m not hopeful about the outcome.
How times have changed :(
Bravo…..well said! (From a “real”president…)
Yeah, but you know they shot him.
