Cartoon disrespectful to queen, Trump and D-Day

The political cartoon with Queen Elizabeth and President Trump, (June 5), sharing a toast to D-Day was really a lowball reach to demean the president. It was also disrespectful to the queen and the solemn occasion being remembered. Although hating the president seems to be the flavor “du jour” for the mainstream media, this childish behavior should have its limits. And might I add, even if the president’s grades in school were actually inferior, they didn’t seem to stop his remarkable successes in life.
