Check out these and other toons from AZBlueMeanie.

But don’t forget that there are other tunes playing out in real life. Here’s a short reading list about the kids with cancer toon.

The Daily Intelligencer (NY Magazine) puts the question: Did the Trump Organization Make Money From Eric Trump’s Cancer Charity?. The answer? Yes. “… In reviewing filings from the Eric Trump Foundation and other charities, it’s clear that the course wasn’t free–that the Trump Organization received payments for its use, part of more than $1.2 million that has no documented recipients past the Trump Organization. Golf charity experts say the listed expenses defy any reasonable cost justification for a one-day golf tournament. … Additionally, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which has come under previous scrutiny for self-dealing and advancing the interests of its namesake rather than those of charity, apparently used the Eric Trump Foundation to funnel $100,000 in donations into revenue for the Trump Organization. …”

Here’s the original reporting, complete with the answer and evidence, on How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business from Forbes magazine.

Washington Post journalist asks Eric Trump if he lied to him in 2016 interview from the Washington Examiner. “Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold asked Eric Trump if he lied to him in an interview about whether Trump used his father’s golf course for free as the location of a fundraiser for the Eric Trump Foundation.” … Well … “When Fahrenthold asked Trump about the payment, Trump told him that his father charged him ”zero, zero“ for the use of the golf course, according to a July 2016 Washington Post article.” See above.
