The chaotic Trump presidency in cartoons from Stormy Daniels to Russia meddling

"Nothing to see here," President Trump says in this cartoon from Daryl Cagle of Cagle.com, a site for artists worldwide. Try as he might, Trump hasn't been able to distract the news media from his affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels, his lawyer Michael Cohen's $130,000 payment to silence her, and the FBI raid on Cohen's home and office. Below, Nate Beeler of The Columbus Dispatch in Ohio explores the menage a trois among Trump, Cohen and Sean Hannity, the Trump shill on Fox. "It's all consensual," Hannity claims.



Hannity is portrayed as Trump's lap dog in this cartoon from Adam Zyglis of The Buffalo News.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has so many leads to follow in another cartoon from Zyglis called "Which Hunt."
In another Daryl Cagle cartoon, Trump calls the FBI raids on Cohen, the lawyer who is often called the president's fixer, "an attack on our country." Not a single reporter laughed in Trump's face when he made that ridiculous comparison.
"The Unraveling," another Zyglis cartoon, notes publication of a book by fired FBI Director James Comey brought vicious attacks from the president and calls for his arrest by Republican leaders.
Trump as the puppet of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, the Syrian war criminal, is explored by Jimmy Margulies, former editorial cartoonist at The Record of Woodland Park.
