Thanksgiving provides an opportunity for editorial cartoonists to present the state of the world using turkey and thanksgiving themed cartoons.
Here are some of the best editorial cartoons this Thanksgiving week, many focusing on trump and his turkeys and on modern consumerism.
As they say, a cartoon is worth a thousand words, so here we go.
A White Thanksgiving?

Despite all the evidence against him, the Senate will most likely let Trump off with all of his crimes and misdemeanors. Mitch McConnell has made that clear. https://t.co/HS6zDLK8Lu #MitchMcConnell #TurkeyPardon #Impeachment #GOP #Senate #Pardon #Thanksgiving pic.twitter.com/3LRRPYAIFI

Black Friday, Republican style.

Consumerism is killing us.

We are slowly getting cooked.

And we end on a positive note on what Thanksgiving means to many of us on this side of the aisle —
Today, we give thanks for our blessings, give back to those around us, and enjoy some time — and turkey, and maybe a little football — with the ones we love. From the Obama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/GEZSGaNSGe

Behind these laughable moments is the fact that GOP is corrupt to the core. They have already made up their minds to pardon Trump, no matter what the evidence shows. Going forward, they will only intensify their scorched earth tactics, hence, we have to stay focused and keep responding to their false narratives, their juvenile shifting arguments and their full-scale mud-slinging campaign with the simple truth — extortion, bribery and witness tampering are high crimes and no one is above the law.
P.S. Let’s not forget to support the cartoonists and their work by visiting their web and twitter sites.
