Trump’s 54th week in office | In cartoons

The state of the uniom is stromg.

The use of spellcheck at the White House? Not so much.

Perhaps you missed this small story, buried in the daily debris of the nonstop mudslide coming from the 45th President of the United States.

President Donald J. Trump gave his State of the Union address this week, his 54th week in the White House, but the tickets to the event contained this enlightening goof: They read, “State of the Uniom.”

The week ended, of course, with the release of a controversial memo from Republican Congressman, and GOP House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes that contained alleged (but unsubstantiated) claims that the FBI had taken improper and unethical surveillance steps during its investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 Election.

Trump later tweeted:

“This memo totally vindicates ‘Trump’ in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. Their was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead). This is an American disgrace!”

Yes, it takes a special kind of genius to not know the difference between “their” and “there.”

But while we are making corrections, let’s make one to the spelling of “nothingburger,” a popular political term these days that’s defined as “something of less importance than its treatment suggests.”

Our new spelling: “Nunesburger.”

And so we continue with our cartoon chronicle of the 45th presidency, State of the Union and all.
