In this cartoon, this is an actual quote from Donald "mob boss" Trump.

Trump 'threatened journalist with prison time' for taking photograph of letter from Kim Jong-un

President complains about magazine's coverage of him

Andrew Buncombe Seattle @AndrewBuncombe

The Independent US

Donald Trump appeared to threaten a journalist with jail time after they took a photograph of a letter he said had been sent to him by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

During an interview earlier this week with reporters from Time magazine, the president showed them a letter from the North Korean, who he said had dispatched it to him recently. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders intervened when a photographer took a photograph of it.

The interview then continued, but appeared to become testy when the topic of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe was brought up.

“Excuse me,” Mr Trump said. “Under Section II — well, you can go to prison instead, because, if you use, if you use the photograph you took of the letter I gave you…confidentially, I didn’t give it to you to take photographs of it. So don’t play that game with me.”

The reporter then asked of Mr Trump: “Were you threatening me with prison time?”

The president replied: “Well, I told you the following. I told you you can look at this off-the-record. That doesn’t mean you take out your camera and start taking pictures of it. OK? So I hope you don’t have a picture of it.”

Mr Trump, who has a love-hate relationship with the media, which he has referred to as the “enemy of the people” despite loving the attention he gets, then complained about the magazine’s coverage of him.

Within hours after an anti-Trump cartoon proved popular on social media, its creator, Michael de Adder, was released from his freelance contract with Canada’s Brunswick News company.

 

The timing of the news - which de Adder shared on his Facebook and Twitter accounts over the weekend - raised eyebrows within the editorial cartooning community. ...

 

In the viral cartoon, which de Adder tweeted last Wednesday, Trump has pulled his golf cart up to two drowned bodies and asks, “Do you mind if I play through?” ...

 

Wes Tyrell, president of the Association of Canadian Cartoonists, told The Washington Post on Sunday that the timing was not coincidental, and that Trump was a taboo subject for cartoon satire at the Brunswick News. ...

That cartoon is bitingly brilliant, one of the best I have seen. It has aroused so much passion because it so precisely nails the truth to Trump's mangy hide and that of the now thoroughly corrupt Republican establishment that enables him. They fear the truth because they have tied her down and raped her and bit her. I hope she gets her turn and that her evil tormentors get what they so richly deserve. Until then, I hope that cartoonist gets the support and the audience he deserves. The world badly needs more like him and shame on the craven editors who are caving in to right-wing threats and pressure.

This few hour display of military strength will cost about as much as the Russian investigation over two years.

When you have small hands, and mushroom genitalia I guess a big display of masculinity is required.

TRUMP’S FOURTH OF JULY PARADE TO INCLUDE FLYOVER BY RUSSIAN AIR FORCE

 

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it “incredibly exciting news,” President Donald Trump revealed on Wednesday that his long-planned Fourth of July parade in Washington will include a flyover by Russian Su-24 fighter planes.

 

“These are beautiful, shiny Russian planes,” Trump boasted to Tucker Carlson, of Fox News. “I’ll be the first American President to have Russian fighters flying over Washington.”

 

He said that he finalized the flyover deal while speaking to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, at the G-20 Summit last week. “Putin said, ‘This is the least we can do, after all you’ve done for us,’ ” Trump said.

 

Trump said he imagined that the crews of the Russian military aircraft will be thrilled to fly over the nation’s capital. “I’m sure they’ll be taking a lot of pictures,” he said.





Any fool can make money, but it takes a special person to earn the respect of respectable people.
