In this wacky political season, you have to laugh to keep from crying! The anticipation of hope that led to the election of our first Black president has given rise to a vehement rejection of the so-called “establishment “ candidate. So reality is setting in that a socialist who is not even a Democrat and a businessman who wears boorish hubris like a badge of honor, are the ones with a real chance of becoming our next president.
A year ago when none of that seemed possible there were jokes and giggles at the thought of a Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders being President. There was FUN! But now, there is political anxiety.
So let’s take a walk through memory lane in political cartoons. Let’s get the fun back to front and center. I’ve included links for you can get more, that is, if you haven’t got enough…. Enjoy!
