New Yorker Cartoon Eviscerates Donald Trump Over His Vulgarity, and It's So On Point It Hurts

While Americans across the country were rightfully occupied with the racist chants from President Donald Trump's North Carolina rally this week, hardly anyone mentioned that Trump also said "g***amn" twice and "bulls***" once.

People didn't notice because public profanity has become a hallmark of Trump's presidency. After all, people infamously heard him brag about grabbing women "by the p***y," and he still managed to ascend to the highest office in the land.


It's not just profane words either, but completely base assertions. Remember when he bragged about his penis size on a national debate stage?

Just a few months ago, the New York Times delved into Trump's unprecedented public profanity:

"His is the profanity presidency, full of four-letter denunciations of his enemies and earthy dismissals of allegations lodged against him. At rallies and in interviews, on Twitter and in formal speeches, he relishes the bad-boy language of a shock jock, just one more way of gleefully provoking the political establishment bothered by his norm-shattering ways."

Now, a cartoon in the New Yorker is calling it out too.

The cartoon, by illustrator Avi Steinberg, features a mother scolding her son with an interesting choice of words herself:

"You will not use Presidential language in this house."

The cartoon perfectly highlights the ways in which Trump has made public vulgarity palatable and, subsequently, presidential.

Is it harrowing or heartening that America's parents encourage their kids not to emulate the President of the United States?

Before long, people were sharing other cartoons skewering Trump.

What a time.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
