Trump’s 35th week in office | In cartoons

The taunts and tough talk between two seemingly unhinged leaders with bad haircuts continued this past week, with newspaper cartoonists from around the world mesmerized by Rocket Man and The Donald.

(“Rocket Man and The Donald” — if only it were a Saturday morning kids cartoon show and not two men with nuclear trigger fingers.)

In this, the 35th week of the Trump Presidency, attention briefly turned from natural disasters sweeping through the Western Hemisphere to the prospects of a man-made one sparked by North Korea’s pursuit of its nuclear weapons program.

There were just a few other events that caught the attention of cartoonists this week; the fate of DACA “dreamers,” Trump’s debt ceiling bargain with Democrats and a promised DACA deal, and Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

What will draw the attention of editorial cartoonists in the coming week? Predictions: Trump at the UN, our tweeting Trump, and the planned demise of Obamacare 2.0. And Russia, Russia, Russia.
