Trump’s 43rd week in office | In cartoons

President Donald J. Trump returned from his extended trip to China and other Asian nations to a country that has lost its collective memory.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions could not remember all those contacts and conversations between himself and his colleagues on the Trump campaign with Russian officials; Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore could not recall stalking teenagers for dates while he in his 30s or even the names of young girls who claimed this week he sexually assaulted them back while he was a district attorney; Moore’s supporters forgot all that stuff about “values” that once seemed so important; U.S. Sen. Al Franken’s memory didn’t match radio personality Leeann Tweeden’s account of their rehearsal for a USO skit in 2006; Republicans in the House and Senate forgot all about the middle class while creating overhauls to the tax code that would blow up the deficit while giving the super-rich huge tax breaks; and Trump blasted Franken over the harassment charge because the president forgot all about the last 40 years of his life, and that Moore guy, too.

There’s more, no doubt, but pardon our forgetfulness if we left something out. Foggy memories must be contagious.

To help us remember Week 43 of the Trump Presidency, here’s a selection of newspaper cartoons from across the country and around the globe.
