Considering that Hope n' Change Cartoons is dedicated to finding a little humor (albeit frequently mordant, sick, or gallows humor) in the news, it may seem surprising that we have such strong distaste for the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, at which the president and alleged journalists roast each other with jokes.
But that's because there's nothing funny about the destruction done by this administration with the complete cooperation of the news media. When this inner circle gathers to make jokes, they're really laughing at the great unwashed citizenry who aren't in on their big incestuous game of charades.
The acts of this government and the complicit media have a huge impact on our lives, livelihoods, and loved ones. And while Barry, his one-percenter Hollywood pals, and the news media sip champagne...the rest of us endure real pain.
Which, in the eyes of these "elites," makes us the biggest joke in Washington.
