Bush Funeral All About Humility

Humility

The funeral for President George H. W. Bush was beautiful, and informative. W’s eulogy was touching.

I drew Bush 41 a lot, and felt like I understood him pretty well as a goofy but decent guy. And I was aware of of his other virtues like integrity, kindness, courage, high speed golfing and fishing, airplane jumping and lip reading. But hearing the speakers, all of whom were close to him and loved him, one virtue seemed to stand out – humility. Maybe that’s because it’s a rare commodity these days, especially in Washington. Anyway, former Senator Alan Simpson nailed it in his warm and witty eulogy:

Those who crave the high road of humility in Washington , DC are not bothered by heavy traffic.

Then the camera panned to  President Trump and the past presidents the front row and, well, this cartoon idea kind of jumped out.

It’s not often you get a pack of presidents together in one shot. So I try to make the most of it. Here’s a cartoon I drew when they gathered for Nixon’s funeral.

Maybe I’ll do the Bush bunch pondering, “If Perot hadn’t run…”

I know. I left Jimmy Carter out of the humility cartoon. It’s not the first time.

President Trump was having a good day. So good the Democrats overplayed their hand on incivility. Plus a judge threw out Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against him. And ordered her to pay his legal fees!

But then he stepped in it and called her Horseface.

Morning Joe Derangement Syndrome

Apparently there’s no wrath like a Scarborough scorned. Trump’s former go to guy now seems to suffer from Morning Joe derangement syndrome. He honored the 9/11 anniversary in his Washington Post column by insisting Trump is worse than the terrorists .
