I never heard of, Michael de Adder, the fired Canadian cartoonist, till now.

His career has been skyrocketed beyond his wildest dreams. That one cartoon will be seen and has been seen by tens of millions more people than it would have been seen if he had not been fired. Whoever fired Michael de Adder, really did the world a service. That cartoon is really very special, and describes Mr. Trump completely.

1. I love his style; reminds me of Clifford Berryman



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clifford_K._Berryman



Clifford Kennedy Berryman (April 2, 1869 – December 11, 1949) was a Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist with The Washington Star newspaper from 1907 to 1949. He was previously a cartoonist for The Washington Post from 1891 to 1907.

During his career, Berryman drew thousands of cartoons commenting on American presidents and politics. Political figures he lampooned included former Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Harry S. Truman. He is particularly known for his cartoons "Remember the Maine" and "Drawing the Line in Mississippi."

Berryman was a prominent figure in Washington, D.C., and President Harry S. Truman once told him, "You are ageless and timeless. Presidents, senators and even Supreme Court justices come and go, but the Monument and Berryman stand." Berryman's cartoons can be found at the Library of Congress, the National Archives, and George Washington University, as well as archives that house presidential collections.

3. This fellow joins the parade of well known people who draw political cartoons.


..I did hear and view a number of great toons by "Mike Luckovich" , and many of them have been posted right here in the Democratic Underground.

2. I'm hoping de Adder already has a new, and better job. And a book deal, as well. (nt)
