Here are some refreshing editorial cartoons this morning — mainly focused on billionaire former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who has wafty aspirations to run for the presidency in 2020 as an independent. Schultz has been foaming on the media circuit this week scalding Democrats, Elizabeth Warren, AOC and Harris on their tax and medicare proposals, but has offered nothing of substance besides some cold caramel-laced platitudes about Washington and the two-party system being broken, etc.
As they say, a cartoon is worth a thousand words, so here we go.
No, we do not want a billionaire coffee-man running for President.

It didn't work for Barack Obama — and Howard Schultz is no Barack Obama. Also, I don't even like his coffee. https://t.co/OmYXqnkYVz

2020 election season is heating up. We need serious candidates like Warren and Harris, not third party vote skimmers, who stand no chance of winning but may cause trump to get reelected.
Meanwhile, the Mueller and congressional investigations of trump and the GOP’s nefarious activities must continue at full steam. Another shutdown looms in 3 weeks. The new House majority has a lot of legislative priorities to address.
Let’s keep the pressure up — on trump and the GOP.
