Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Who’s Afraid of Liz and Dick?


Even staunch conservatives lately have been calling Liz Cheney out for going too far: calling the DOJ the “Department of Jihad” for having the poor judgment to provide legal defense to Gitmo prisoners. (So much easier to just drown them.) Ken Starr and Lindsay Graham have been trying to distance themselves from the Cheneys, explaining that legal representation is an essential part of the US criminal justice system. I remember Liz and Dick in that brilliant film version of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” They played a twisted, foul-mouthed couple in a spectacular insult marathon. You can’t look…and you can’t look away.

FIGHTING DISINFORMATION

As President Trump and his acolytes ramp up their efforts to distort the truth and discredit the Mueller investigation, you can see how urgent our new priority to build a team focused on exposing disinformation will be.

If you're fed up with the lies coming from Washington and proliferating on social media, help us push back with a tax-deductible donation today.

We still need to raise about $80,000 by June 30 so we can bring on a full-time reporter and a data scientist to dig deep on disinformation—who's behind it, how it spreads, and how we can counter it—before this fall's midterms. Please don't sit this one out. Join us and your fellow MoJo readers today.
