Michael Ramirez

Michael Ramirez is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. His cartoons are syndicated by Creators. Michael won his second Pulitzer while at Investor's Business Daily.


  • I’m so disappointed. For those of us who are thinking people – who research our decisions and don’t blindly accept the narrative of the day, or who have vaccine-injured children – this cartoon is beyond disappointing. You’re such a talented cartoonist, it’s such a shame you have this issue so upside down…

    • And if he was being truthful, it would be a black man in the comic not vaxxed since it is blacks who have the lowest rate of vaccinating….NOT Trump supporters like the media is lying about. I would know. I am a vaccinated Trump supporter, as well as many in my family. All Vaccinated. The media lies.

    • Jenni, I too was very disappointed with this cartoon – I don’t think Mr. Ramirez gets it. All the research I have done shows that masks do no good and it looks like more and more each day the vaccine is no good. This has become so political it is hard to believe anything anymore. I wonder where Mr. Ramirez is getting his facts. Past medical advice that has come from the government has been disastrous for some people – I do NOT trust the government and this one in particular. I think Mr. Ramirez owes many people an apology. BUT like many politicians we will never see it. This was NOT funny or appropriate.
