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 don’t get this. What is your point? I take it as anti-Trump Communist BS.
    Exactly what is you political position?

    • You should direct those questions to Michael Ramirez, who can be reached through his syndicate.

  • An ambiguous cartoon, perplexing at first. It references indirectly the NYC district attorney who, like the NY State Attorney General, got elected with a “Get Trump” campaign. Those who point this out, like Harvard law professor and “Get Trump” book author Alan Dershowitz, are banned from mainstream media. Cuban-Americans with memories of Castro Cuba instinctively publish in ways that would pass censorship regimes. Beside monopolistic $$ greed, an important function of USA Big Tech and Social Media is gathering intel and personal info to support persecution efforts against political enemies (e.g. Jan. 6 selfies). Alternatives like Tik-Tok and Trump’s Truth Social are threats to this monopoly. Trump gets special attention as a former candidate and USA president, and provides a lesson: Endless persecution and potential death by imprisonment (Jeffrey Epstein style) for defying USA neo-con foreign policies or Democrat/communist agendas. The USA eagle represents Uncle Sam or the USA government which is now under Dem/communist control. The American eagle’s USA totalitarian regime, like totalitarian and communist regimes around the world and historically “Never Ever Tires of Persecuting Political Enemies”.
