The Donald Trump administration has invited a controversial right-wing cartoonist to the White House, the artist revealed on Tuesday.

The Anti-Defamation League blasted a Ben Garrison in 2017 for a shocking cartoon that appeared on a website attacking H.R. McMaster.

“The Garrison cartoon features a stage with McMaster and retired general David Petraeus as puppets being manipulated by left-leaning philanthropist George Soros, perceived as a major villain across the far right spectrum in the United States and the subject of many conspiracy theories. Soros, who is Jewish, is himself depicted in the cartoon with puppet strings, being guided by a greenish hand and arm labeled “Rothschilds,” the name of a Jewish family long involved in the banking industry,” ADL continued. “The thrust of the cartoon is clear: McMaster is merely a puppet of a Jewish conspiracy.”

On July 11th, Garrison with be feted at the White House.

Trump is betting on reckless approach to win in November

On the Fourth of July, a day meant to celebrate American independence, Donald Trump once again focused on creating a racist spectacle. Despite concerns about spreading the coronavirus and starting wildfires, Trump insisted on having a fireworks-heavy celebration at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, which was clearly a campaign rally no matter how much the taxpayers were bilked for it.
