RARE IS the issue that you can get nearly all political cartoonists to agree upon. But an exception, as far back as Bill Mauldin’s heyday, has been Nazis.

In the wake of Charlottesville, President Trump has found a way to unite America’s cartoonists. He has even sparked a growing reaction among satirists on foreign shores.

President Richard Nixon’s most infamous gap involved 18 1/2 minutes of erased tape. Will the most infamous gap of President Trump’s administration be the two days of delay it took him to denounce the role of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan in the violence that reared its evil head over the weekend in Charlottesville?

Gen. Robert E. Lee had his Appomattox. Will the absence of calling evil by its name in the immediate hours after blood was spilled in Charlottesville become President Trump’s moral Waterloo?

Here is how some of the world’s cartoonists are responding to the American president’s slow response to being on the right side of history instead of “many sides”:
