Wall Fall

Wall

Pelosi’s a pro at politics. Trump, not so much. He ended the government shutdown for 3 weeks and got nothing in return but a promise to negotiate a wall Democrats don’t want and have no incentive to build. President Trump offered to take the blame for the shutdown and Nancy was glad to give it to him. Hard. His base is bummed.

“[Speaker Nancy] Pelosi ordered everything off the menu and left Trump hanging with the bill,” one Trump ally texted.

 

Trump’s Speech

President Trump’s speech from the oval office was short and sweet. He demanded five and a half billion for a border wall, or barrier, or something sticking out of the ground, but didn’t declare a national emergency.

Base Fear

Marc Theissen thought it was great. Trump reached out to Americans beyond his base.

But Chuck and Nancy thought otherwise. Nancy says the wall is immoral. Chuck said Trump used the oval office to manufacture a crisis. And they both looked stiff and uncomfortable.

Could be they were looking to reach beyond their base too.

Christine Blasey Ford Presents Award

The publisher of the popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue gave its Inspiration of the Year award to Rachael Denhollander. Rachel was the first to accuse Dr. Larry Nasser of sexually abusing her as a young gymnast under his care. And over 150 other other victims came forward to corroborate her story.

Here testimony put Dr. Nasser in prison for 175 years. And his employer, Michigan State University, paid $500 million in settlements to 332 victims. Vox has has an in depth story of what happened here.

Christine Blasey Ford Presents Award

Christine Blasey Ford made a video presentation of the award. She claims to be a victim too. She accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of molesting her at a high school party. But no one corroborated her story. Nor could she remember when or where the alleged assault happened or how she got there or got home.

Judge Kavanaugh was put on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Obama Judges Trump Judges

Obama judges Chief Justice John Roberts

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar ruled against President Trump on an immigration matter. So Trump called him an Obama judge. And that prompted Chief Justice John Roberts to publicly rebuke the President, explaining, “there are no Obama judges or Trump or Bush or Clinton judges.”

Obama Judges

Mark Thiessen thinks jumping into a political argument is a funny way for Justice Roberts to show he’s above politics.

You may have noticed Trump doesn’t claim to be above politics. So he counterpunched that judges are a threat to national security.

Go here to see a president publicly rebuke the Supreme Court.

 

Unmanned Camera Crime

This cartoon isn’t based on any particular news story. No, it’s personal. Well, not really personal. Mechanical and digital would be more like it.

My car got busted for speeding.

Yeah, an unmanned camera ratted out the car. Then I got a computer generated letter from the Cleveland suburb of Linndale demanding $100. And it included a photo of what appears to be my car. So, I asked the car what it was doing speeding in Linndale. But the car didn’t answer.

So, if a computer busts my car, does my car have the right to remain silent?
