Award-winning animator Mark Fiore weighs in on Donald Trump’s belligerent vacation in his latest clip. Watch the video and read Fiore’s thoughts on the president’s break below. 

Now that President Trump is otherwise occupied while on his vacation, we’ve got nothing to worry about. Except a nuclear war with North Korea, that is. Unfortunately, Trump is on a “working vacation.”

Meanwhile, the Russia investigation unfolds. We learned today that there was an FBI raid at Paul Manafort’s house. So while most people are juggling work and vacations, apparently Bob Mueller is not taking a summer vacation this particular year. He has pressing matters at work, apparently.

Since Trump is on vacation, I’m off on vacation now. (Just a coincidence, we’re not spending any time together.) Back soon, promise! In the meantime, enjoy the cartoons and be sure to take a look at my other work and go behind-the-scenes here on my Patreon page.
