Trump's tweets this morning about Puerto Rico were really aimed at San Juan Mayor Cruz who was seen by WH as criticizing him again, I'm told

Opinion: Puerto Rico deserves better than this kind of treatment from the president. Then again, we all do. https://t.co/v3qe5o4xNj

Mike Peters is recognized as one of our nation’s most prominent cartoon artists for his outstanding work as both a political and comic strip cartoonist. His favorite expression “WHAT A HOOT” certainly sums up his outlook on his life and work which are inexorably entwined. Mike’s warm, easygoing and zany demeanor is evidence that his personality matches his creative talents. As so eloquently phrased by a colleague — “Mike is the Peter Pan of the cartooning world; he’s boyishly charming, good with a rapier and doesn’t spend a lot of time on the ground. And he doesn’t seem to want to grow up”.
