Graphic Representation: The madness continues


Our first two offerings deal with the popular vote, which Hillary Clinton won by more than 600,000 votes.

First, from the Arizona Republic:

Benson: Trump won! Except for this

Next, from a nationally syndicated cartoonist: [the actual number is smaller than when the cartoon was drawn, and closer to 600,000]:

Jeff Danziger: Trump Victory Rigged


From the Washington Post, environmental disaster ahead:

Tom Toles: Exactly where he wants her

And from his Washington Post colleague, Mitch, Marco, and Ted, kiss the ring:

Ann Telnaes: All falling into a Republican lineblog-t-telnaes

Our next two offerings, starting with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, look at Trump’s latest appointment:

Mike Luckovich: Helluva choice

The reference is to Trump’s pick of Steve Bannon, his campaign CEO and chief executive of the virulent Breitbart,com, as his chief strategist.

From Salon:

Adam Jentleson, the spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, expressed disgust at the news of Bannon’s appointment. “It’s easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of White Supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide,” Jentleson wrote in a statement. “Bannon was ‘the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,’ according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

Jentleson also cited allegations that Bannon had committed violent domestic abuse and noted misogynistic headlines from Breitbart including “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy” and “The Solution To Online ‘Harassment’ Is Simple: Women Should Just Log Off.”

This is not the extent of Bannon’s racist and sexist record: He has claimed that Roman Catholics want to boost Hispanic immigration to the United States because their “church is dying,” referred to the Civil War as the “war of Southern Independence” (a phrase often associated with pro-Confederate apologists for slavery), said that conservative women are better than progressive women because they’re not a “bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England” and complained about inner-city people of color, saying that “cities could be washed away in an orgy of de-gentrification.”

Another offering on the same theme from the Baton Rogue Advocate:

Walt Handelsman: Trump’s Ear

Finally, from the Guardian, a reminder that lunatic comes from the Latin Luna, or Moon:

Martin Rowson: They all came out to howl
