From the New York Times:
Trump Sends Troops to the Border
What are the president’s priorities?
By Patrick Chappatte, Nov. 1, 2018
Mr. Chappatte is an editorial cartoonist.
I like how the poor bastard who enlisted to fight in The Forever War in the Middle East is an elderly white-mustached Wilford Brimley-lookalike who must have enlisted on 9/12/2001.
I also like how the New York Times gives its cartoonist a headline and a subhead to explain his cartoon.
Update: Apparently, the original caption read “I enrolled to fight in the Middle East.”
A good piece about the silliness–and costs–of Trump sending more US troops to the border to confront a caravan 1,000 miles away than he has deployed in Syria or Iraq: https://t.co/cl0g3fNZCw by @helenecooper
