Capitol Ink | The Exact Same Joke

“If I write a good joke in July that puts words in Donald Trump’s mouth and then draw it up in a cartoon, everybody loves it. It’s fantastic. They think it’s absolutely great. Donald Trump tells the exact same joke in October and people get on his case, and I don’t get it! I don’t know why. It wasn’t his fault those words came out of his mouth.”

— R.J. Matson
