‘Fake president’ cartoon neither funny nor correct

The intent obviously was to make fun of fake news by calling Donald Trump a fake president

To the editor,

Re: Editorial cartoon, Nov. 7.

The editorial cartoon was more pitiful than it was funny. The intent obviously was to make fun of fake news by calling Donald Trump a fake president. If anyone has any question as to whether fake news is real, they only need to watch Trump-hating CNN, or Clinton News Network, for an hour or so.

As for Trump being a fake president, let’s discuss that. He won the electoral college that counted very handily, the unemployment rate is the lowest in over 10 years, the stock market is at a record high. He is on the verge of putting through a massive tax relief program that will put money in the hands of the low wage earners and middle class. Large job-producing companies will be able to expand and bring some of their manufacturing back to the U.S.A. And yes, the liberal media hate him. But fake president? I think not.

If this paper intends to print editorial cartoons, it might do well to at least get a better artist if you can’t get one with better ideas.
