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.


  • E Plebnista – now run it again with Uncle Sam’s arm around Joe Biden, or both together.

  • No question that DJT needs to be reminded, as Ramirez suggests. I can easily think of several other prominent political personages and former Presidents who also desperately need reminding – the current occupant of 1600 Pa Ave, Trump’s predecessor in office, both Clintons, LBJ, FDR, Nixon. Maybe it’s something in the DC water?

  • Oh please. The biggest lie of all time is that no one is above the law. This has never been true. Trump is held to a higher standard.

  • That should be a picture of any Democrat, especially Obama-lite, Joe Biden.

  • I continue to be disappointed in your unfair criticism of Trump. He is definitely not perfect but is still one of the best presidents we have had despite incredible roadblocks and betrayal. Why is he being held to a different standard than others. Maybe he doesn’t feel he is above the law but the law is unfairly applied in his case. The law must be applied equally. The indictments would be a joke if they weren’t so politically targeted and destructive.

    I believe I am not alone in being tired and disgusted with the lack of appreciation of what was accomplished in the last administration and how the corruption in the government is tolerated by so many of you.

    • I agree with you 100%. I & I has blocked my views on Ramirez. I bet they blocked many readers that have the same perspective.

  • Sad that Ramirez is having trouble with the First Amendment as he enjoys it so much. It would have been true if instead of Trump (Ramirez blind spot) you had DOJ Jack Smith. Nothing in that indictment is illegal or founded in law. Questioning and speaking about the 2020 election is not illegal, further if it was Hillary Clinton and Stacy Abbrims would be in orange strips for years of questioning elections. Mr. Ramirez get over yourself.

  • Sorry, Michael Ramirez, have to part ways with you on your cartoon about a president above the law.

    It would be a fairer cartoon if you asked the same question to the former Speaker of the House who initiated two unconstitutional impeachments of a President, and then followed that seditious behavior by empaneling another vindictive committee, the J6 Committee which, like Soviet proceedings, allowed no defense.
    Where does her unbridled hatred, rarely seen on earth, come from?
    Pelosi initiated and fed sedition against a sitting President.
    It is not too late to impeach her for her seditious crimes against our country and against the American People.

  • Ramirez gets it right on a lot of issues. When it comes to Trump, he doesn’t have a clue.

  • Has anyone noticed that rarely Issues & Insights readers agree with Ramirez on Trump. Just saying.

  • Hey TDS-Ramirez, show us where Trump has said the law does not apply to him, as your TDS-Dem comrades dishonestly claim.
    Show me where a president or former president does not have the freedom of speech or freedom of thought to say there was fraud and the election was stolen from him, you know, like your TDS-Dem comrades do when they lose.
    Show me where your TDS-Dem comrades are allowed to corrupt the FBI to spy on a sitting president of former president and his people or any People.
    Show me where your TDS-Dem comrades are allowed to corrupt the DOJ and weaponize it using lawfare against the opposition party’s leading candidate using trumped up charges to influence the next election, too!
    Show me which president did not take records when they left – even kept in them their garage – and did not have the presidential authority to declare what was secret and what was not, a power VPs do not have.
    Show me what president has months of riots in cities across the country for months with many deaths and billions of dollars of property destruction with Dems fund raising for bail money for the BLM & Antifa thugs. While Trump called for peace.
    Show when Republicans have done as Democrats did on Jan. 6. When they turned a peacefully into a riot so as to shutdown the vote certification. Thus, preventing two Representatives from calling for a hold on the certification to look into vote fraud. Preventing this also prevented the Republican from that their election challenge to the Supreme Court. What an actual coup!
