WATCH: The Gingrich Who Stole Christmas (Saunders Cartoon)


Editors’ note: Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week’s animation, Newt Gingrich, relishing his role as the current sugarplum dancing in Republican heads, generously bestows on all who will listen his solution for the nation’s poorest children. Written, animated and acted by Zina Saunders. Music by Kevin MacLeod.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
