Suck It, U.N.! (Video)


Well, President Trump managed not to nuke anyone during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. At least he didn’t push the button during the speech—a speech that was not exactly the picture of peaceable diplomacy. There was name-calling, saber-rattling and chest-thumping. (And, of course, the de rigueur recounting of his glorious electoral victory on November 8th.)

But don’t keep your eye on the Tweeter-in-Chief too long. While Trump was tweeting Hillary golf ball gifs and threatening to destroy North Korea, Republicans in the Senate were reviving a horrific Obamacare repeal bill. It’s still unsure whether they’ll pull it off this time, but they’re trying once again to butcher Medicaid and jack up rates on people with pre-existing conditions.

Hmm, nuclear war abroad or medical annihilation at home, take your pick. Here’s hoping yet another heartless Obamacare repeal bill fails and Trump stays away from the nuclear launch button for another day. Enjoy the cartoon and be sure to stop by my Patreon page.
