This New Yorker Cartoon Made Me LOL

The New Yorker is a magazine published in New York, a city in New York, a county in New York, a state in the United States, a country in the world.

This New Yorker cartoon by Emily Flake is from January but it could just as easily be from today since the GOP is still making a last minute attempt to replace Obamacare with a sack of potatoes that fell off a truck, and the President of the United States is still sending deranged tweets about whatever he sees on Fox & Friends.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
