Editorial cartoonist, Ted St. Godard got fired for this cartoon. He was fired for doing what editorial cartoonists are paid to do. This is yet one more direct attack on the freedom of the press.
I applaud Ted St. Godard for keeping a bright light shining on the immorality and racist policies of the Trump administration. More of us need to do the same.
Today we celebrate Father’s Day. And thousands of parents, both mothers and fathers, are having their children ripped from them. Trump’s America is no longer a place of safety for those fleeing persecution or violence. We are now a place where unspeakable cruelty is perpetrated through immoral, racist (and I would add, illegal) policies designed to deter those seeking protection.
If ripping families apart and child concentration camps are necessary to make America great again, maybe we need to redefine greatness. I grow ever more ashamed of my elected leaders for their complicity in supporting this corrupt administration
