Trump, you cannot fool all the people all the time

Editor,

Art can save us. Here’s mine. Imagine this political cartoon: In the foreground, the figure of Cheeto Trump railing about the so-called “Russia investigation.” And towering over him in the background is the sober and brooding countenance of Abraham Lincoln observing, as he did on Sept. 2, 1858, in Clinton, Illinois, during the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
