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…

Standard Christmas Gift Return Cartoon

This is the time of the year cartoonists like to head over to the gift return department. Just draw a dissatisfied customer returning some unwanted political gift and presto, it’s back to the holiday schnapps.

My offering this year concerns Nancy Pelosi’s gifts of Christmas present and Christmas past.

The House impeached President Trump just in time for Christmas 2019. Ten years ago The Senate rushed Obamacare through on Christmas Eve. Speaker Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it. But they’re still not sure.

In 2012The Supreme Court upheld The Affordable Care Act by calling the individual mandate to buy insurance a tax. But in 2017 Congress reduced the mandate to zero. So last month an appeals court ruled that if there’s no revenue there’s no tax, and killed the mandate. Then the court sent the case back to a judge in Texas who says with no mandate there can be no Obamacare. Got that?

Cheers!

Impeachment Express Secret Testimony

Past impeachment inquiries were handled by the House Judiciary Committee. But Nancy Pelosi snatched that job from Jerry Nadler and gave it to Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. Now he’s taking whistle blower testimony in secret and the Impeachment Express is on track to take down Trump.

Pelosi runs the railroad but she’s a reluctant impeacher.  She says nobody comes to Congress to impeach a president,

Well, almost nobody. And now Nancy’s on board to impeach The Motherf***r
