17 Political Cartoons That Will Make You Laugh And Then Question Everything

This must be why you never wanted to get into politics

  1. 1

    On the subject of mass shootings:

    Both parties differ in views about the cause of mass shootings in the U.S. Democrats argue military-grade rifles are to blame, as they have no place in the hands of civilians. Republicans argue it's the people behind the weapons; specifically, radical extremists.

  2. 2

    On Donald Trump:

    Republicans and Democrats agree that Trump's attitude and proposals are over the top and potentially dangerous, especially for someone who wants to lead the country.

  3. 3

    On the focus of politics in America:

    From the Republican Party dealing with Donald Trump as the presumptive GOP presidential nominee to Hillary Clinton being highly scrutinized because of her past, the political campaign for the 2016 presidency has been more of an entertainment show than a presidential race, for not just the U.S. but for also the world.

  4. 4

    On airport TSA lines:

    In the wake of the growing long and slow-moving TSA lines, head of security, Kelly Hoggan, was replaced, citing lack of experience. In some cases, not even 2 hours was enough time to catch your flight.

  5. 5

    On candidate popularity:

    The race for the 2016 presidency yielded historic disapproval ratings for the presumptive nominees, leaving voters to reluctantly choose the "best" option.

  6. 6

    On the Zika Virus:

    The Zika Virus is very widespread in South America, as many people are now infected. As you know, the 2016 Summer Olympic Games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and unless the Zika Virus somehow disappears by August, it remains a major concern.

  7. 7

    On Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump:

    As you might be aware, Trump and Clinton have received historically high unfavorable ratings. Clinton's opponents, like Bernie Sanders, claim she's unqualified to be president, but this only adds ammunition to Trump's campaign.

  8. 8

    On Democrats' gun control sit-in:

    House Democrats staged a sit-in to demand a vote on legislation for gun control. There is still much controversy over gun ownership with every mass shooting that occurs. Worried about the future of gun ownership/rights, many people flock to gun shops in case they won't be able to in the future.

  9. 9

    On the Cleveland Cavaliers' 1st championship win:

    LeBron James and the Cavaliers beat the Warriors 3-4 to bring home the championship title to Cleveland, the first for the city. After leaving Cleveland to join the Miami Heat in 2010 (and winning championships 2 years later in 2012 and 2013), fans felt betrayed and even went as far as burning his jersey. So, this win might've played a significant part in Cleveland fans willing to accept the "king" back to their city.

  10. 10

    On Brexit:

    A surprise to many, Great Britain withdraws from the European Union. Some view this as an effort to break free from the restraints of being in a union and take back their country to gain independence.

  11. 11

    On controversy over Supreme Court rulings:

    53 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech to a quarter of a million people. He had a dream that one day, no one will be "judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Unfortunately, that day has yet to come, and there is no better proof of this than what lies within our own justice system. When a case is brought to court, it is because there is a demand for justice. It is true that in many cases, race plays a huge role in the outcome and because of this, most people do not receive a fair trial. Some people get off far too easy, while others get unnecessarily harsh sentences. Is justice really justice?

  12. 12

    On Brexit and Trump similarities:

    Brexit has been compared to Donald Trump's presidential proposals. Trump undoubtedly supports the UK leaving the European Union as they become a more independent state, and does not hesitate to use this towards his advantage.

  13. 13

    On ISIS:

    ISIS recruiters have been successfully tapping into and brainwashing the minds of really anyone with internet access, using propaganda to lure people hoping for a "better life." As you know, the Grim Reaper symbolizes death, which emphasizes the point that if you decide to go this route, you may never get out.

  14. 14

    On Trump's standing in the polls:

    It appears Trump has been faltering in the polls and perhaps he should focus his campaign to include more people to possibly gain more voters.

  15. 15

    On how the Republican Party is dealing with Trump as its presumptive nominee:

    Members of the GOP who reluctantly support Trump because he is the presumptive Republican nominee are doing so to prevent another Democratic win. They once were highly critical of and said they'd never support someone like Trump, but there remains no other choice to secure a Republican win. Maybe it won't be as bad as it seems, right?

  16. 16

    On white privilege and the judicial system:

    It has been shown time and time again that white privilege is a real thing, and it still continues to plague our nation. As a nation, we cannot accept the fact that two people of the same background, committing the same crime, with the only difference being the color of their skin, get two completely different, opposing sentences. It makes absolutely no sense and we can't pretend it doesn't exist.

  17. 17

    On the trustworthiness of the presumptive presidential nominees:

    Voters are having difficulty deciding which candidate is fit to run this country and even more difficulty putting their trust in either of them. If there's a reason to be able to trust one candidate a little more than the other, then perhaps it's better than nothing.
