We have three of the best conservative cartoonists showing off and discussing their Joe Biden and Hunter Biden cartoons. CagleCartoonists Gary McCoy and Rivers join two time Pulitzer winner, Michael Ramirez for a fun and lively episode #31 of the Caglecast! They talk about Hunter’s scandals and special interest money, Joe Biden’s “dementia,” their views of liberal media, their perspective on Biden’s “failed policies,” their use of humor and satire in political cartoons, and the reactions from editors and readers to their conservative perspective in what they view as a liberal media world. They also talk about their process of drawing cartoons and what crosses the line as inappropriate in a cartoon. This is a view inside the conservative media bubble into the passion behind their dislike for Joe and Hunter Biden.
MICHAEL RAMIREZ is a two time Pulitzer winner and a good old friend of mine for many years. His work is syndicated to hundreds of newspapers by another syndicate than ours, and he’s the full time cartoonist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which is an excellent, cartoon friendly newspaper! Michael has won a ton of awards, and his work is brilliant, as you will see here.
RIVERS is our anonymous, brilliant, conservative cartoonist here at Cagle Cartoons, but I can tell you that he has also won a ton of awards in his previous cartoonist life, which shall not be named and he’s a good looking fellow under the mask.
GARY McCOY is brilliant, conservative and has won a ton of awards too, including ten Silver Reubens from the National Cartoonists Society. He is also a prolific magazine cartoonist and he draws TWO syndicated newspaper comic strips, The DUPLEX and the FLYING McCOY BROTHERS — which is a crazy amount of work.
