White House Arrest

I’m leaning heavily toward being a prison abolitionist, but if the entire Trump/Pence Administration were to be thrown in jail, I wouldn’t lose too much sleep over it at this point.

Better yet, put them all under house arrest. In the White House.

Let them stay in that gilded prison, stripped of all cell phones and Internet access. Let Trump watch all the TV he wants to, without the ability to tweet about it. For him, that might be considered cruel and unusual punishment.

I can’t really draw, but I was inspired to make a pencil sketch.

Crude drawing of the White House, with barred windows and a barbed wire fence in front. I’m the warden.

Obligatory reminder that I am not a Democrat and I did not vote for Hillary Clinton. That dollar sign replacing the star field in the American flag represents both major U.S. parties to me. That doesn’t mean I consider them identical or equally horrible in all respects; I don’t. But I also don’t like unwarranted assumptions or assertions about who or what I support based on my race or political views.

Eventually, this nightmare of a presidency will end. However and whenever it happens, it won’t be soon enough.
