THE WILD week in Washington actually began with cameras trained on Hollywood, as some anti-Trumpers watched the Golden Globes and joined the chorus of those calling for an Oprah Winfrey run for president in 2020. Could a former TV reality-show host best be ousted by a former TV talk-show host?
Meanwhile, the flames of debate continued to swirl around Michael Wolff’s hot-selling inside-the-White-House book, “Fire and Fury,” which had landed early after Team Trump threatened to legally derail its publication.
And amid all this political gamesmanship, the South Korea-set Olympic Games neared, with North Korea wanting to come join the spirit of competition, fresh off trading fiery and furious words with President Trump over which leader had the bigger nuclear button.
And with Trump due for his first presidential physical exam — so soon after his profane words for the peoples of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations — many critics continue to question his mental health instead.
Here’s how some of the week’s best cartoons deftly sliced and diced all the drama:
