The liberal cartoon is way too busy. At least you could follow the right-wing one (even though it was pretty stupid).

Obviously,  and not only that Trump had her killed election day just to prove her right.

Trump as seen by the left: he's racist, sexist, anti-environment, anti-trade, and in bed with the Russians, and that's a bad thing

Trump as seen by the right: he's racist, sexist, anti-environment, anti-trade, and in bed with the Russians, and that's a good thing

Ok, I understand the Right's version. I can follow it. I can see their perspective. It makes coherent sense as an image, even if all the ideas are grounded in falsehoods.

But the Left's version baffles the hell out of me. The image is a giant convoluted mess. Maybe that's the point?

These 2 cartoons perfectly define the American political process.

The right has a well crafted message full of bullshiat
The left has 10 thousand details, poorly messaged to people who mostly don't have the attention span to even try to understand it.

So people look at the info from the right.  Skim the one thing provided by the left.w/o really understanding any of the content.  And only remember the right's message 15 minutes later.

Imagine your daughter.

Imagine she's hot. Really hot. Oh you wanna #%*!your daughter.

Also, you're a tangerine and there's a fungus growing out of your scalp.

And you really like big macs.

I mean, at this point there are so many scandals and lies it's tough to track in real life. So having a year in review panel that's so overwrought and busy actually makes sense to me.

All fact checkers are liars. How else can one explain how often their claims contradict what Trump says? If they were balanced, they'd have to say Trump is right every now and then.

Y'all are right, I fact-checked with Snopes and found the correct attribution:

It's so weird how ICE as a thing appeared one day while Trump was president and started deporting people, having never done that previously.

How about 'I don't need an illustrator to draw how much I hate Trump, I can categorize that perfectly fine on my own and better than any singular picture'?

Both examples are pretty awful. And neither are as bad as the One I Shall Not Name.

You may need scientific notation to quantify your hatred, though.

When I saw Judy Collins with Stephen Stills recently, she was commenting on working with Leonard Cohen and she said "Leonard was one of the most brilliant people I ever met. He even had the good sense to die the MORNING of the election!"

They did. Remember the meme which depicted Trump as having said that Republicans were the dumbest voters on the planet? Snopes said it was false and that he didn't say it.

Since Snopes apparently lies, are you saying that this isn't true and that he DID in fact say it???

You and #2 can EABOD.

Perfect analogy in so many ways - if you were watching the daily activity all this last year, there's been a brazillian details and events with a veritable shiatstorm coming from all sides with this abortion of an administration and it's difficult to properly sort everything out.  Even when the press is actually on the ball and has concise reporting on the current stupid, just wait five minutes and Donnie or someone reasonably close to him is gonna do another outrageous bit of bullshiat, and......

gah.
