I think it can be a lot of fun to see what different cartoonists have done with the same theme; in this case, Trump's infamous hat.

Some of them are fairly obvious:

Mario Rubio was challenged and corrected on some misinformation by a gay New Hampshire voter on the campaign trail on Monday.





Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, in an exchange with a gay New Hampshire resident today, showed a lack of historical knowledge and got accused of wanting to put LGBT people back in the closet.

Rubio was campaigning today at the Puritan Backroom diner in Manchester, where Timothy Kierstead asked him, “Why do you want to put me back in the closet?” according to The New York Times, which cited press pool reports. Rubio responded, “I don’t. You can live any way you want.”

Kierstead pointed out that he’s a gay man in a same-sex marriage, and said Rubio’s opposition to equal marriage rights shows the U.S. senator from Florida thinks gay people don’t matter. Rubio said, “No, I just believe marriage is between one man and one woman.”

When Kierstead said, “That’s your belief,” and noted that half the nation disagrees, Rubio replied, “I think that’s what the law should be. And if you don’t agree, you should have the law changed by a legislature.” As Rubio prepared to move on, Kierstead noted that the law already has changed [by the New Hampshire legislature]. He could have been referring to the U.S. Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision last year or to the fact that New Hampshire’s marriage law was indeed changed by its legislature to include same-sex couples — back in 2009. And in 2012 the legislature rejected an effort to repeal marriage equality.

Kierstead told reporters afterward that he's a Manchester restaurant owner, a father of three, and a registered independent voter. He will vote in the Democratic primary Tuesday because of Republican opposition to marriage equality, he said. “They want to take my rights away as a citizen of the United States,” he said of Republicans.

It wasn’t the only gay-related conversation Rubio had in the diner, the Times reports. Another patron asked him if U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who recently dropped out of the Republican presidential race, is gay. Rubio chuckled and said no, according to the Times.

The Human Rights Campaign, in a blog post about Rubio’s exchange with Kierstead, stressed that Rubio is staunchly opposed to LGBT rights. He has said he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would reverse the marriage equality ruling and has voiced support for the First Amendment Defense Act, which would allow broad exemptions from antidiscrimination law if the discrimination is based on religious or moral objections to same-sex marriage.

“Let’s dispense with this fiction that Marco Rubio is a moderate. He knows exactly what he’s doing when he telegraphs his desire to allow discrimination in last week’s debate, and then tells a married gay man to have the legislature vote on his constitutional rights," JoDee Winterhof, HRC’s senior vice president for policy and political affairs, said in the post. “Marco Rubio’s so-called ‘New American Century’ is one in which LGBT people are treated like second-class citizens, where they remain at risk for being fired or denied a job because of who they are or who they love, and where they could lose the right to get married. He’s threatened to revoke, repeal, and overturn the gains made on LGBT equality during President Obama’s two terms in office. Rubio would be a disaster for LGBT Americans, plain and simple.”

Ben Carson

Ben Carson thinks he's getting a unfair amount of scrutiny by "the liberal media."


“There’s no question I’m getting special scrutiny,” Mr. Carson said on CBS. “Every single day or every other day or every week, they’re going to come out with, ‘Well, you said this when you were 13’…and the whole point is to distract, distract the populace, distract me.”



But NBC's First Read review of previous presidential elections uncovered that during the 2008 election, between the New York Times and Washington Post, 160 articles were written about (then) Senator Obama's relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. There were 41 articles published about the relationship between Bill Ayers. During the 1992 election cycle, there were 69 articles published between the Washington Post and New York Times about Bill Clinton's relationship with Gennifer Flowers. It should also be pointed out, The Wall Street Journal has been been reporting on factual inconsistencies with Dr. Carson's biography.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was once seen as a boring candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. But recent stories about the GOP frontrunner would seem to suggest otherwise: Especially his theory that the Egyptian pyramids were built by the biblical Joseph for grain storage, rather than as tombs for the pharaohs. In response, the internet hive mind created a new meme: the Ben Carson Wikipedia. Here are some fun “facts” he inspired:

Fans of the Democratic presidential hopeful can now purchase underwear with his face silk-screened on the rear, along with the popular slogan "Feel the Bern." Thank to comedians Larry David and Ellen DeGeneres for inspiring the latest political fashion statement, which is not sanctioned by the campaign. After Sanders told DeGeneres last month that he preferred briefs over boxers, David picked up the thread during his ace impersonation of the Vermont democratic socialist on "Saturday Night Live."

"I own one pair of underwear, that's it," David/Sanders said during an SNL send-up of the Democratic primary debate. "Some of these billionaires, they've got three, four pairs!" That viral scene inspired a team of three Vermont-based Sanders supporters to launch the Bernie-branded briefs, which go for $15, with 10% of the profit donated to the Yellow Ribbon Fund to benefit veterans.

"Bernie is known as a champion of veterans so we wanted to give (some of the proceeds) to an organization that he would appreciate the money going towards," said Todd Bailey, one of the creators of the undergarment line and a partner at KSE Partners, a government affairs and communications firm in Montpelier.
