The Presidential Swim-Cartoon of the Week

The Story Behind the Cartoon

I don’t usually post political cartoons due to the fact that it seems like too much energy to give people I have a hard time believing in what they say. That being said I had to do this one and here is the story why. 

Earlier this month I was sitting on a beach watching the ocean and enjoying the sound of the waves. The day happened to be the Inauguration for the new President Donald Trump. As I was watching the ocean on this beautiful day I watched a man walk out of the ocean onto the beach with his wife. From afar he looked like Donald Trump as he had the same colour hair and it was blown to one side from the waves. I wouldn’t have thought anymore other than his bathing suit was the same pattern as the American Flag with the stars and stripes. I immediately thought of Donald Trump trying escape the mayheim in Washington by going through a tunnel and swimming to a Caribbean island. I quickly drew a sketch in my sketchbook which has turned into the cartoon above. I hope you enjoy it!
