Inmate Netanyahu

With all the news happening, international stories that would normally get some attention are buried. I even forgot to post this cartoon that I drew more than a week ago.

Israel’s president is facing a big bribery scandal that could send him to jail. It is interesting how little ink this story is getting.

I first drew this with Netanyahu wearing the cartoon classic striped prison suit, without thinking.
