  1. Fabulous image Mister Fish ! This nation needs a total-Trumposcopy — because there’s a little bit of him in every supporter.

    1. There’s a little Trump in way too many American’s, not just his supporters, or we never would have gotten to such inequality and widespread anguish for someone like him to come into power.
      Is the elephant pooping, or is it giving birth?

  2. Man, that’s gotta hurt.
    I feel sorry for the elephant.
    (Not the Republicans).

    1. “disinterested” ..Best description of centrist DemoRats today., let us work to get them to finally care about us “little people”., and not just mouth words.
      and yes, what happened at The Capitol, is EXACTLY what the U. S. has always been about.

  3. Just Brilliant ! Mr. Fish just ceaslessly adds needed humor to our political misery !
    Indeed as Mr. Fish always demonstrates for us , art is the best antidote to insanity
    and a picture is worth a thousand well crafted words !

  4. You’re on a roll, Mr. Fish. Two great pieces in a row. But as Remy asked, is the elephant pooping or birthing? Hmmm…

    Robert Scheer could devote an entire Scheer Intelligence episode to that question alone.

    1. Welcome back, Marble, we missed you.

      My personal take is the party birthed him back in 2016, then ate him for 4 years and, now that he is a loser, is trying, painfully, to excrete him … in an effort that could maim or kill the beast…

      1. Good to be back, Editor, and nice visual (ugh). As I read your post, I was reminded of my Shih-Tzu who poops then likes to eat her own poop. Republicans are now eating what they crapped out in ’16. Unfortunately they won’t pay a price. Not really. The Democrats will keep them alive; they need an opposition party to give them cover for deliberately failing the American people.

        Funny thing about ’16 and the Electoral College’s overturning the will of the people, we are generally taught that the alleged purpose of the EC is to prevent a demagogue from being elected. To prevent tumult and disorder and such. Yet alas, here we are.

  5. Indeed. is the elephant pooping the biggest piece of poop in the world, out.,
    or giving birth- ? the fact that only a handful of Republicans are on board of ousting Trump now, and cowardly McConnell won’t support impeachment…
    instead they mouth the “now is the time for healing” .,
    because they seek to court the MAGA fascists for upcoming elections. Hypocrite Republicans are trying to bury this treason now, and exploit it in the future.

    By the way, how can I purchase this from Mr. Fish? no more abilities to buy this image?

  6. Is the title a reference to the Hemingway poem that concludes “And in the end the age was handed the sort of shit that it demanded”?

  7. Maybe its a reference to The Beatles: And in the end / the love you take / is equal to the love / you make.
    The elephant should be morphing into a donkey.
