Trump’s 55th week in office | In cartoons

President Donald J. Trump wants a big parade in Washington, D.C. that will showcase the might of America’s military.

He also wants a popcorn cart; one of those really nice ones that looks like it came from the carnival, with big red wheels and that thing that does the melted butter. So good, believe me.

And a pony. He also wants a pony.

So here we are, at the end of the 55th week of the Trump Presidency, a week that saw two men accused of domestic assault lose their White House jobs, a second federal government shutdown, a staggering stock market, the latest Trump Twitter tantrums, and people who didn’t applaud the president labeled as treasonous.

And now Trump wants a military parade, something that will make the country forget all about the nonstop scandals spewing from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Tanks for the memories.
