Andy Marlette cartoon from January 2019:
I don’t remember a lot of fuss over this when it first appeared.
But now, going out on Barbara Streisand’s Twitter feed yesterday – Boy Howdy!
Renowned entertainer Barbra Streisand tweeted a gruesome cartoon on Saturday in an apparent attempt to express her displeasure with President Trump during his ongoing feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
The cartoon showed massive high heels, including one labeled “Pelosi.” Impaled on the black heel was a tiny Trump with what looked like blood flowing from his chest.
[note: It is President Trump’s famous long tie.]
The above comes from Fox News, but they are only one of a number of conservative sites,
news and opinion, taking the entertainer to task for using Andy’s violent imagery.
Among those jumping on the bash Barbara bandwagon are the Washington Examiner, Townhall, the Daily Mail, Breitbart, and a host of others, like Joe For America, writing disapprovingly of such hypocrisy. It seems the Washington Examiner was the news organization that ferreted out the cartoonist (we’re looking at you Andy) and its first appearance, actually crediting(?) Marlette.
