Ben Garrison manages in two consecutive cartoons to in the first one promote treason and in the very next cartoon suggest that Biden is putting America last (as opposed to treason which is fine). For all that these guys pretend that they love Lincoln or that the GOP are the party of Lincoln they seem to forget that the whole point was that secession is treason - one nation, indivisible...

The executive order hypocrisy should also be noted. Trump signed 220 executive orders compared to Obama's 276 in twice as much time. In fact, the only presidents in the last 40 years to sign more executive orders in one term were Nixon and Carter.

I always chuckle when people bring up treason in the context of the Confederate States of America and their secession given that the United States of America was literally founded on people committing treason and seceding from the British Empire.

Why is McConnell alongside the democrats in that cartoon?  How does Ben think he's on the same team as Obama?

I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be Bernie Sanders, actually. It's a fuck awful likeness, though. I also thought it was McConnell at first.

Keep in mind, there's reports that McConnell wants Trump to be convicted, he just can't corral enough of his caucus so he's voting with the bulk of them. (So far, that's two votes on the trial's constitutionality--the second one declared it constitutional by a 56-44 vote, with Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Romney, Sasse and Toomey voting with the Democratic and Independent Senators; Cassidy voted to declare it unconstitutional the first time it came up but switched for this one.)

As a conservative acquaintance of mine noted, conservative legal opinion is pretty united on the question of whether the Senate can try Trump (they all say that it can), and so this is just a way for Republican Senators to signal on the one hand that they're pro-Trump while on the other hand giving themselves a fig leaf of cover to say that they think they shouldn't be voting on it in the first place, and so they'll vote to acquit on principle since a conviction would be an unconstitutional exercise of power.

Pretty sure it is McConnell - Garrison can do  Sanders.
