Editorial Cartoonist RJ Matson: "Trump just stole my joke at the Al Smith Dinner."

Line for line, Trump took the joke in this editorial cartoon and told it at the Al Smith dinner

Editorial cartoonist RJ Matson originally created this three months earlier. The cartoon is copyrigh RJ Matson.

Theft from cartoonists is rampant. The media, even the outlets you might think would be interested in running a story about it (Amy Goodman, The Young Turks, Rachel Maddow, HBO's Vice, etc.), to date, have not run one story about politicians repurposing cartoons or theft of cartoons in general. Musicians complaining about their rock music being used without their permission, yes. But not ink. Go figure.
