The Week’s Best Cartoons: Where Are The Good Apples?

By Lalo Alcaraz

This was a very bad week for America. “Where are the good apples?” comes from a question Trevor Noah from the Daily Show asked his audience when discussing the recent string of incidents of police murdering Black people. This isn’t an easy roundup of cartoons this week, but it’s a reflection of our country right now.

  1. A great collection this week, TS. Every time I thought there was an astounding ‘toon, another two popped up to replace it. The ‘tooners were at their best. So I wonder what those you did not choose had to say. Were they the bad oranges? As in Trumpelstiltedorangeskins?

    • Sometimes I exclude cartoons that make the exact same point. Or, I pick my favorites for a particular news story. As for conservative cartoonists, I will occasionally include them when they’re really effective, but not when I think their point is total BS.
