The Left-Cheek Ass Clown for November, 2018

It seems somehow wrong to select an Ass Clown awardee in the same week in which we celebrate the things for which we can give thanks, but that's just the sad reality of this year's November calendar.

I gave serious thought this time to revoking Donald Trump's lifetime achievement award so that I could recognize his relentless undermining of our national institutions and international relationships, but I decided that other ass clowns need recognition, too. With this in mind, I have thought long and hard and decided to present the award for

The Left-Cheek Ass Clown for November, 2018


White House Press Secretary
Sarah Huckabee Sanders
(Third Award)

It is not easy to put a rational public face on an administration as far off the rails as the current one, but Sarah Huckabee Sanders did her best for a long time before gulping the Trumpian Kool Aid and becoming the condescending and dismissive face of a White House utterly uninterested in truth and accuracy. Uninterested in upholding the First Amendment rights of the press and willing to spout the most ludicrous explanations for otherwise indefensible administration actions, Ms Sanders has turned the important position of White House Press Secretary into a useless generator of white noise*.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Readers, Sarah Huckabee Sanders receives her third Ass Clown award, as our Left-Cheek awardee for the month of November, 2018.

Well deserved, indeed.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow, when Cartoon Saturday looks back at Thanksgiving.


* Defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as "a constant background noise; especially, one that drowns out other sounds."

It seems like the press gives her less coverage these days.

Worthy indeed.

Mike - I think the press gives less coverage because she's less available to them.The formerly daily press briefings are now infrequent.
