Trump lost the 2016 popular vote, but won the Electoral College. By doing so he won his first elected office ever (and if there is a GOD, hopefully his last elected office). He became the President of The United States. In 2017 I wrote the following verse accompanied with this cartoon.

“Of Donnie’s Future Misdeeds

We Must All Take Heed!”

I pat myself on the back for the foresight but take no joy being prescient as we recover from the last agonizing weeks of Donald J. Trump’s four years of hateful vitriol and what it has wrought upon our nation. He could have done so much good but he was intent on destruction and evil and the January 6th, 2021 violent siege of the nation’s Capitol Building (the “Cathedral of our Democracy” as described by Hakeem Jeffries on “Meet The Press” January 10th, 2021), was proof, for me, that Donald Trump is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.

I began reading William L. Shirer’s masterpiece “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” and in the first 200 pages it gives a very detailed description of Adolf Hitler and his mindset. I was impressed at how much that was documented in those first 200 pages reminded me of Donald Trump. It talked of Hitler’s indolence, getting others to pay his way, his cult of followers, his avoidance of paying taxes, disdain for education, renowned backstabber of close associates no longer deemed useful, surrounding himself with thugs, misfits, and the persistent, constant, never ending lies, lies, lies! History was repeating itself only now it was not in Europe!

I was reading about the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch. That was Hitler’s violent attempt to overthrow Germany’s democratic Weimar Republic headed by the aging President Hindenburg.

Beer Hall Putsch – Wikipedia

I was reading this around January 4th, 2021 while also following ambitious, dark money, Republican Trump Cultist suck up and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley. This caricature emerged from the drawing board. I posted it on Twitter that day.

He is such a Trump (Hitler) sycophant this cartoon was obviously influenced by my reading “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”. The next day, January 5th, the cartoon was “improved” and also posted on Twitter.

On the morning of January 6th I saw the photo of Missouri’s US Constitution denigrating Traitor Hawley with his now iconic “White Power Fist” raised in approval to the gathering mongrel hoard of barbarian insurrectionist as they prepared to storm the “Cathedral of our Democracy”. I posted this image on twitter.

The Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 … oops … I mean …. The Capitol Hill Putsch of 2021 received it’s “Fist-of-Approval”, “Go-Ahead” signal. They stormed the building. Pillage and Plunder commenced unabated for hours as the President of the United States gleefully watched the chaos and carnage on TV to the horror of those present. Just after his speech inciting his followers Trump was in a tent full of TV screens watching the march toward the Capitol Building when plantation whore Kimberly Gargoyle entertained Trump with a Hitler victory jig. See video link below.

I had been doing a few Josh Hawley cartoons through 2020.

Is it me or does Hawley look like a Horse?!

My cartoon evolution culminated in the Nazi comparison. “Adolf” Hawley remains defiant. His river of donation money is drying up. Everyone that can pull support away has done so but Josh keeps on “Heil Hitlering”.

So I will continue to try and get more mileage “kicking this dead horse”.


This is beyond a sad time for The United States. I joined the Navy and honorably served. I swore an oath to the Constitution I still live by. I am ashamed of the actions of these traitorous American citizens on January 6th, 2021. Watching news reports made my blood boil. How could they violate our Capitol in such a manner, refer to themselves as “patriots”, while singing the national anthem, and later chanting “Hang Pence Hang Pence? I never thought I would want to take up arms against citizens of my own country but these insurrectionists, their sedition, and vile uncivilized behavior changed all that. Trump harnessed stupidity, blind obedience, misguided loyalty, abuse of power: nutured it, incited it, and unleashed it on Capitol Hill January 6th. Consider me “Woke” to their game now.

These Cult45 underachievers drop out of school, drink all day, watch sports, have no discipline or education, no skills, are grossly unqualified for even menial labor and want to be handed CEO of some Fortune 500 company they will only run into the ground through sheer incompetence. Enough is enough!

Trump is an indolent, lazy, megalomaniac, bone spur draft dodging coward that somehow achieved a position to boss, denigrate, insult, and bully everyone, even military generals and admirals. (Hitler was an indolent, lazy, megalomaniac, vagabond, Austrian low ranking corporal that ended up the supreme leader who wasted no time defecating on the German High Command of generals and admirals!)

In the end Hitler destroyed Germany, Trump is trying to destroy American.

But America has a secret weapon that ain’t secret no more. The can of whoop ass has been opened. No more appeasement. Justice first … before unity, but unity will come.

To the Trump supporting, Cult 45 Q-anon derelict underachievers that stormed the Capitol; Law and Order is coming your way. It won’t be an illegal mob of misfit, Duck Dynasty look alike meth head morons bashing in your windows and kicking in your doors. Calmly, patiently, and Legally. A polite knock on your door, a professional law enforcement officer with backup, a warrant for your arrest, and a request you can not refuse, “Please Come With Us!”

One insurrectionist at a time. One enabler at a time. We’ll see how brazen and bold you are alone as they come for you!

Thank you Meidas Touch, Don Winslow, Lincoln Project, Really America, and all the video producers pulling the curtain back on America’s Nightmare: Donald J. Trump and his seditionist GOP.

I heard Josh Hawley’s book, “My Struggle” finally did get published but there are criticisms and complaints of plagiarism …

Wonder who he copied…

Underground Cartoonist is a former ICU nurse that has worked at numerous civilian, military, and veteran Intensive Care Units across the country for better than three decades but has been sketching, drawing, and cartooning since he first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. Dabbled with political cartooning, writing, and general illustrations but the bread and butter came from health care. Recently left professional nursing to concentrate on camping, hiking, nature, the outdoors, trees, trails, and peace of mind. Love a campfire; rather watch it than TV. Avoid bureaucracy, career ladders, ladder climbers, and hero worship at all cost. Evenings spent with a good book, reading until the book smacks my nose when I doze off. Generally up at sun rise, listen to the mourning doves, put the coffee on, and play it by ear the rest of the day.


  1. The picture of Rise and Fall is too small. It needs to be HUGE! lol

    I started reading that big chunk of a book back in, I believe, 2015 or 2016, before Trump was even nominated, so I don’t believe I was reading it for similarities at first. I finally finished reading it sometime last year, after taking many breaks to read other, much shorter books. I also got it on Kindle, so I can actually take it with me everywhere I go for reference without breaking my back.

    Over the years, I began to recognize similarities. I also recognized them when reading Sebastian Haffner’s “Defying Hitler” a couple of months ago. Passages here and there sounded like Trump or like our own political climate, especially the closer it got to Hitler taking over. Especially chilling was reading how an intellectually open culture became overrun with fascism, to the point that a group of classmates–who used to be able to argue politics in a jovial manner–couldn’t even speak to each other anymore.

    Despite not believing in reincarnation, I’ve been joking that Trump’s the reincarnation of Hitler for years, especially after learning that Trump was born not long after Hitler died.

    1. My mother is a Sudetenland German (Czechoslovakia) and to hear her talk of her father (worked on the railroad) and her brother (German soldier) everything is glossed over; ice cream and cake party time. The chapters on Austria and Czechoslovakia were enlightening and in no way could my grandfather and uncle not be caught up and a part of these turbulent times. I have thought of reading Mein Kampf but figure I will need a break by time I am done with “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”. Also have no desire to do more political cartoons. My cartoons were my protest against Trump and soon he will be gone. I hope to revive through inspiration from the outdoors and nature. Watching the Duck dynasty barbarians ransack, rape, pillage, and plunder the capitol building gave me great insight into the deranged mindset of a certain specific population living in the United States. It was disheartening to say the least.

      I am enjoying the snowfall. Feeding the birds and leave corn out for the deer. I avoid the city as much as possible and hope to never hear from another trump supporter or trump supporting family member again.

      Thank you for your reply. I enjoyed reading your comments.

  2. I still think Mr. Putin put Trump in our White House to cause civil unrest in America. what better way to destroy the most powerful country than to get the citizens that follow bullshit to come from under the rocks. Hopefully they finally awaken and their brains start thinking about the world and stop trying to destroy Democracy!!!

  3. I kept saying (and people kept ignoring me) that Trump was opening Pandora’s box of inbred, mouth breathing Bible thumping underachieving gun toting puppets. People laughed as his worshippers crawled out like primordial bugs, thinking it was all just a freak show. Anyone who truly understands what happened in Germany knows it was not an act of intelligent planning. It was a a mass frenzy, created by the most evil mind ever to be in power-and he was not smart. He was cunning. It all boils down to the fight between brutal, heartless ego driven minds and civilized, caring, reasonable people. Trump, McConnell, Graham, Boebert, Greene, Palin, Hawley, MCarthy, Cawthorn, Abbott, Cruz, DeSantis and Scott all need to get on a Covid infected cruise ship headed for the farthest deserted island where they can create their own empire. All hail Cheetoh Head. They can send boats for their devoted masses to follow. They will need loyal subjects. Free tickets! Just bring all your cash, guns and McDonalds gift cards. I am just. Sick. To. Death. Of all of it. Makes Watergate look like a B spy movie. In my 62 years I’ve seen a lot of evolution in the US but I never cried until I watched civility die. It was eaten alive by self righteous rage and the misplaced idea of what constitutes human rights. Love your cartooning. I was in medicine for 35 years. Covid and a mini Trump doctor for a boss drove me into early retirement. Keep telling it like it is.
