Political Cartoonist Rob Rogers Fired After Making Fun of Trump

HeadlineJun 18, 2018

Back in the United States, longtime political cartoonist Rob Rogers has been fired from his job at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after 25 years, in what he says was a response to his critical cartoons about President Trump. Among his recent sketches that his editors refused to publish was one that depicted a caution sign with a silhouette of Trump snatching a small refugee child, as well as a Memorial Day cartoon in which Trump is laying a wreath in front of a gravestone for “truth,” “honor” and “rule of law.”
