    This is perfection. We miss you out here in California!

    It’s a start. Thanks for the morning thought.

    The hint of plumber’s crack is a nice touch.

    I make the guy on the left as Stephen Miller. If you’re going to have a couple of half-faces representing the sociopaths who make up Trump’s core advisers, one of them has to be Miller.

    Picture worth a thousand words…

  5. Thalia says:

    Oooh, true, it does look like Miller! They are supposed to be George Papadopoulos (left) and Paul Manafort (right). We did this on the day the news broke about the indictment etc. Thanks for the comments, miss you, too 🙂

      Except for the blond women and Eric, most of them are interchangeable swarthy NYC sharks with matching haircuts.

      • Beverly Stafford says:

        Glad you said that. Each time one of them is before the camera, I have to read the crawl to find out which one it is.

      • Thalia Chantziara says:

        Easy there on the NYC comments! 🙂
        He chooses them like that on purpose, so he can stick out in all his orangeness.

    In addition today: Flynn- (former Trump top National Security Advisor), Flynn jr, and Wilbur Ross- (current Secretary of Commerce) face criminal charges related to Robt. Mueller’s investigation.
    In the meantime, WH cabinet is packed with swamp clutter and science deniers. What a shit-hole mess,
    Trump supporters!

    Great illustration Antonia and Thalia! Thank you.
