With a mix of angry humor, barbed irony, and total disbelief, political cartoonists around the world are sharpening their pencils to illustrate something that can’t be explained in words: President-elect Donald Trump.

While some cartoonists are focusing on Trump’s misogyny, others are using their skills to highlight the racism and nativism that ran through his campaign. In most cases, the cartoonists are challenged to make the U.S. look more cartoonish than it’s become.

Many of today’s cartoons reflect a deep concern about the immediate future of a country that for centuries has been a beacon of democracy and freedom for those fleeing authoritarian regimes and economic chaos.

This is from Belgian cartoonist Lecctr

From Holland’s Hein de Kort:

Arabic news site Hunasotak depicted Trump as a meteor hurling towards Earth.

Canadian cartoonist Ygreck on the need for his country to brace for U.S. refugees.

For many Mexicans, Trump’s win was a big F-U to immigrants.

Mexican cartoonist Rapé mocked his own country’s president for his accommodating stance towards Trump.

*
In Venezuela, cartoonist Edo highlighted recent comparisons between Trump and Latin American strongman Hugo Chávez.

*

Brazil’s Carlos Latuff depicted Trump as a conqueror trampling U.S. democracy.

And he questioned how Trump will get on with other world leaders, when he doesn’t know anything about the world, and doesn’t seem to care.

Cartoonists in Colombia also highlighted the racist undertones of Trump’s campaign.

France’s satirical cartoon magazine Charlie Hebdo also targeted U.S. racism, and wondered what will happen to Obama now that he’s “once again a regular citizen.”

Australia’s Leahy highlighted the Kremlin’s bizarre role in the U.S. election.

And this, which doesn’t need any explanation, from Canadian cartoonist Michael de Adder.

So well done, voters. Way to “Make America Great Again” in the eyes of the world.

    Mikhail Gorbachev said that we have NEVER been closer to nuclear war. Vladimir Putin said, “If it’s Hillary, it means war.” But President-Elect Trump will reduce tensions by withdrawing troops from near Russia’s border and either cooperating with the Russians in Syria or getting the US out. The world is blessed that Trump beat the warmongering Clinton.

    The “world’s best” cartoonists just announced they watch CNN and work for corporate globalists…the best part? They don’t even realize it!

    oopsy daisies…

    America’s best cartoonist is independent and points out the corruption of the philanthro-capitalist con-artists, that fuel the clintonista cult.

    He just made a new one today – featuring – the world’s best cartoonists!
