Trump’s 58th week in office | In cartoons

The White House announced this week it was losing Hope.

It joined much of the rest of the United States, which has been searching for a different kind of hope for nigh 58 weeks now.

The revolving door at the White House was set to spin again as Hope Hicks, White House communications director, has said she is resigned her position.

It was the latest sign of continuing chaos at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, followed then by President Trump’s announcement of a trade war and tariffs on steel and aluminum, as well as speculation that senior advisor Jared Kushner may also exit the White House amid security concerns and controversy stemming from his business dealings during the early days of the Trump presidency.
