A Tale of Two Trumps






This one took forever to make, and I nearly gave up. Pardon any weird transitions, the Powtoon platform has its issues. That said, I think this one is my most ambitious pieces yet. “

Some days, you just can’t.






This has been, overall, a rotten day. It’s allergy season here in Tennessee, so my head is already fogged up. The Republicans, who are liars and cheaters of the worst kind, put Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. Trump pretty much guarantees we’re going to war in Syria. And Don Rickles fucking died.
