Trump’s 49th week in office | In cartoons

The end is near.

The end of the year, that is, and not the nightmare that haunts the dreams of so many editorial cartoonists across the country and world.

Actually, there’s two nightmare scenarios that cartoonists find super scary:

• Trump leaves office early; or

• Trump stops tweeting.

The 45th president wrapped up his 49th week in the White House — well, technically, he’s at his Mar-a-Lago resort right now — having emerged victorious in the war against Christmas and with the best poll numbers of any president in history, believe me.
