A Cartoonist’s Vacation (Video)


Coincidentally, I am also on a “working vacation” like President Trump. Hopefully, I am offering less encouragement to white nationalists carrying tiki torches and in less trouble with Robert Mueller. It must be very difficult to relax with the Russia investigation and compulsive tweeting getting in the way of your golf game.

Enjoy our president’s vacationing catastrophe. Meanwhile, I’m going to take a few more days to avoid the executive mayhem coming from Bedminster, Manhattan and Pennsylvania Avenue. Back soon!
