ALSO THIS WEEK: That other big story in the news prior to the shooting in PA...
By Brad Friedman on 7/15/2024 9:30am PT  
ED NOTE: After temporarily holding off publication of our long-running Sunday Toons series following the assassination attempt on Donald Trump in Butler, PA on Saturday, we are now running those previously planned toons in full today, after Trump's announcement on Sunday that his political and travel plans would not be changed in advance of this week's Republican National Convention because he "cannot allow a 'shooter,' or potential assassin, to force change to scheduling, or anything else." With his apparent approval then, here are our Sunday Toons, a day late, as originally compiled Saturday morning. --- BF

"I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it. ... I have nothing to do with them." --- Trump | Actual. Facts. Available. Here.

By Brad Friedman on 7/14/2024 11:42am PT  

Given Saturday's horrific assassination attempt on Donald Trump at a political rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, I am postponing today's Sunday Toons for now. The toons I had prepared on Saturday, prior to the shooting, can wait. It does not feel appropriate to publish at this hour.

We all still very much need the occasional relief of finding humor in the god awful churn of news events this nation is facing. Perhaps now more than ever. But, for now, for this moment, that can wait. Maybe for a few hours. Maybe a few days. Or maybe until next week. We'll see.

What happened on Saturday was nothing but disgusting and shameful. I am glad --- and we are all very lucky --- the outcome was not even worse.

Though we don't yet know the full circumstances of whatever occurred, it is appalling that a would-be assassin was able to obtain what appears to have been a long-range semi-automatic rifle with which so many rounds could be fired in a matter of seconds and with such deadly precision at such a distance. (Reportedly from outside of the venue's perimeter, from about 150 yards away from where the former President was speaking.) Such a weapon is a weapon of war. It should come as little surprise then that they are now regularly being used in such a fashion. For a political war.

The political violence that has been fostered, and that we have seen play out in too many incidents in recent years, must end. The assassination attempt on Trump reveals America at its shameful worst. Despite his disgusting repeated mocking of a similarly grotesque attempt to assassinate the husband of Nancy Pelosi in October of 2022 --- repeatedly treated as a literal joke by Trump and his supporters --- there is nothing amusing about what happened on Saturday. We should all condemn such behavior, no matter who carries it out and no matter who the victim or attempted victim may be.

We must also continue to speak the truth --- always peacefully but clearly --- and not allow this incident to be used by opportunists as an attempt to chill accurate, fact-based political speech at one of the most critical moments in American history. Our toons --- and that free, peaceful, critical political speech --- will return...
