is trump the next nixon?

cartoon for feb. 1, 2017.(p o: steve benson/the republic)

i understand that 50 percent of the republic readers are democrats, but the rest of us are weary of mr. benson’s liberal views.

the day after the election he showed president trump leaping like a spoiled brat shouting, “i won!” while mrs. clinton standing beside him smiled and said, “yes, you did ... unless you count the popular vote.”

he portrayed president obama sitting in a lincolnesque memorial with a beaming smile with the caption, “obama cared.”

he drew president trump disrespectfully with mrs. clinton nearby, looking prim and proper, with her caption, “alternative.”

i like healthy robust debate and when given facts, not opinions, i can change my mind. so, republic editors, could you please hire a cartoonist to represent us, the other 50 percent, and tell mr. benson – the election is over!
