By Daryl Cagle

This week, the two biggest news stories were the Trump administration’s tampering with the Post Office, and Joe Biden picking Kamala Harris to be his running mate. Here’s how the editorial cartoonists covered those stories, and more.

  1. This is an excellent collection of the week’s best cartoons! I have been thinking about the late R. K. Laxman; India’s own inimitable cartoonist, illustrator and humorist. Amongst the many memorable quotes from Laxman, two seem especially fitting this week : 1) “I am grateful to our politicians. They have not taken care of the country, but me.” 2) “Cartooning is the art of insult and ridicule.” Thank-you!

  2. Reblogged this on Filosofa's Word and commented:
    Once again, our friend TokyoSand has found the best of the week’s political cartoons, and since I am without humour today, I shall share hers with you! Thank you, TS!

  3. A good round-up. Now, if only some kindly but dedicated initial-named agency would ROUND-UP the escapees from the Repuglycan Swamp-Draining Project, and throw them in jail again, we might start to make the progress Trump PROMISED he would make if he were elected in 2016, then promply called FAKE NEWS on January 21, 2017.
    To all those wonderful, and “talented,” edtoon artists out there, could someone please draw me a picture of Trump’s new Red Hat campaign slogan for 2020: Maintain American Fascism In America. MAGA has gotten boring as hell.
