Lasley Introduces Trump To Powhatan

Image from Wikipedia

Powhatan, whose proper name was Wahunsenacawh, was the paramount chief of Tsenacommacah, an alliance of Algonquian-speaking Virginia Indians in the Tidewater region of Virginia at the time English settlers landed at Jamestown in 1607.

Pocahontas is most famous for saving the life of Captain John Smith. This story has been retold many times in many ways. Disney’s Pocahontas was their first attempt to rewrite a historic event, instead of a fairy tale. As usual, the Disney version resembled the original just enough to confuse everyone.

  1. don’t blame me for the mistakes of my father – it is good to remember them so that they are not committed again.. but that’s a far as it needs to go – to somehow insinuate that this ‘sitting president’ is somehow unfaithful to anything regarding Indian is pure poppycock – the Indian of today have their own life to live and walk their own path – if there are limits set that are effecting their path – I’d be looking at other recent past presidents such as Clinton and Obama with their land control rulings. If this is a poke at the pipeline – get a brain there are tens of thousands of pipelines across this city nation. One more does not make or break anything.

  2. Oh look, yet another anti Trump scribble from the dull little man with his sharp pencil.
    Seriously it’s like being force fed spam week after week, but even spam has some variety, truly pathetic.

  3. guess this liberal guys education did not tell him that virginia and NY are 2 different states. As stated the chief was in Virginia, but what are facts to lib dem other than an inconvenient truth. Another was of space drawing as this guy just like fitz is not a cartoonist in any shape or form.

  4. Another dull useful cartoonist who fancies himself an artist and witty, Not!

    Hi R.L
    How bout a Stunning Sunset of the Tumacacori Mts. With Brian Terrys’ Family weeping in the sky.The Last Sunset he saw.
    Killed by guns run to mexican cartels by the previous Admin.
    Or maybe you’ll just make a cartoon of it.
    Thanks for the history lesson yer smart.

  6. WHAT ?❗️Have you lost your sense of HUMOR? …Remember Trump degrading
    Elizabeth Warren as she is part Native American?? Your buddy Trump would refer to her as Pacahontas❗️Now…..Trump is about to get an Indian haircut from Pacahontas Dad❗️😂 OMG! Hilarious GET IT ?? FUNNY

    • What would really be funny is having the secret service arrive in Tubac, cuff and stuff this idiot cartoonist to be whisked off to some undisclosed location for some water boarding for depicting bodily harm to the lawfully elected sitting president our the United States.
      Now that would be the first time this pathetic clown ever made me laugh.

    Michelle, you are missing the point of Trump referring to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas. She has no native American heritage at all. Calling her Pocahontas is a sarcastic reminder of the lies she has told all of her life, to her great benefit, including on college applications and her official bio. A more appropriate cartoon would be the dad of Pocahontas scalping Elizabeth Warren, in revenge for her “stolen valor” of the proud native American people.

  8. Mister Charles you need to get your facts straight ❗️Elizabeth Warren and her family have always been proud of their Cherokee Heritage❗️Trump was trying to empress his NRA buddies buy mocking Elizabeth❗️You are letting yourself get sucked into Trumps LIES❗️Sadly, you are a victim of Trumps chronic BS and full on LIES‼️

  9. In all likelihood, “Michelle” is really Lesley dressed up in drag after far too many double martinis.
    It’s really sad when “Michelle” is his only fan and supporter. But then again some people insist on seeing “art” whole others clearly see a full toilet bowl that needs flushing, it’s all relative.

  10. Mister Marko, looks like you have nothing concrete to say and only insults just like your Mr Big Trump Buddy❗️BTW.. Richard’s last name is LASLEY not Lesley‼️Sharpen YOUR pencil 😜

    Thanks again using Mr. Mr. Lasley to remind us how intellectually dysfunctional the Obama Dem`s are. As usual, the only sense to be made out of his so-called political cartoons is the telling of a lie with zero reference to realit, EXCEPT as an expression of the meaningless hate of the left.

    Trump can dish it out, but can not take it! Like some of his supporters. Poor Trump keeps getting
    picked on Whaa Whaa, Did not know a humorous carton could expose a devil man like Marko!
