Cartoon by A. F. Branco


1. Just as in the cartoon Peanuts, when Lucy continuously fools Charlie Brown into thinking she’ll hold the ball for him to kick only to pull it away at the last second, the cartoonist is implying the DNC will once again, as Bernie Sanders supporters believe they did in 2016, steal the nomination from Sanders in the 2020 presidential primary.

2. Opinion question. Answers vary.
