A lot of distractions are out there – forest fires, molotov cocktail fires, pandemics and bad hair days. And now the final insult: President Trump signs peace deals in the Middle East! What will he steal next, President Obama’s Nobel Prize?

Only Her Hair Dresser Knows if Nancy was Set Up

Biden blames Trump, Pelosi blames the hair salon. Fox News somehow obtained video of the Speaker’s illicit San Francisco blowout.

The city only permits outdoor hairdos. But Pelosi had her do done deep in the bowels of a salon. Without a mask.

When faced with the evidence, she claimed it was a salon setup. The owner says it’s a lie.

All can agree, however, Nancy’s hair looks great. No word if Joe thinks it smells good too.

 

Latest Episode of Pelosi / Trump Counterpoint

The latest episode of Pelosi / Trump Counterpoint played out last week when Nancy shed crocodile tears over Donald’s “morbid obesity” and he called her a “sick woman”.

As it happens, I’ve joined a new cartoon venture called Counterpoint. The idea is for two cartoonists – liberal vs conservative – to face off each day in the Counterpoint newsletter. My cartoon appeared opposite Chris Britt on Wednesday.

Pelosi / Trump Counterpoint

You might call it the Jane, You Ignorant Slut edition of Counterpoint.

“I could easily have been one of the guys in Chris’s bar. I’m distancing skeptical, but couldn’t pass up drawing Pelosi’s “morbidly obese” jab at Trump. Harvey Korman and Tim Conway couldn’t have done it better last week. Eighty-year-old Nancy Pelosi could barely contain herself as she expressed concern for “her” president’s health. Taking hydroxychloroquine at his age? Imagine that! And his weight group… you know, morbidly obese. I thought she’d crack up laughing before she got the words out to Anderson Cooper. And then her surprise to find out Trump was so thin-skinned about the whole thing (he called her “a sick woman”). I’d love to see Nancy and Donald together in Chris Britt’s bar at closing time.”

Hydroxychloroquine, Moderna Vaccine and Trump

Hydroxychloroquine is President Trump’s drug of choice at the moment. It’s an anti-malarial drug that some think has an off-label use against Covid-19. On Monday Trump announced that he personally takes the drug. He told the press, “I was just waiting to see your eyes light up when I said this.”

There are risks, its effectiveness against Covid-19 is unproven but he’s taking the drug under the supervision of his physician.

It’s not like he’s mainlining Lysol. Still, the expected media freak-out ensued.

Pelosi offers second opinion on Trump Hydroxychloroquine Therapy

The Speaker of the House recommended against the therapy and diagnosed Trump as morbidly obese. The president countered that she’s a sick woman with a lot of mental problems.

Earlier Monday, Moderna announced that phase one testing of its Covid-19 vaccine showed positive results. So positive that the Dow shot up 900 points. But then Trump stepped the good news.

Pelosi Impeachment Procession

House Speaker Pelosi dispatched a procession to the Senate to deliver a 1,426 word leather-bound document containing articles of impeachment. The Speaker and her acolytes hope to frogmarch President Trump out of the White House.

But, as The Washington Post reports:

For all the pageantry, both Johnson and Clinton’s impeachments ended in acquittal. Trump’s probably will too…
