Donald Trump fired James Comey from his position as Director of the FBI this week.
The White House Deputy Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, says the president considered firing him from “day one” as a result of the “atrocities” he had committed during his appointment.
However, the timing of Trump’s decision is the source of intense debate given the FBI’s investigations into the administration’s alleged contact with Russia during the presidential elections.
In light of the controversy, artists have been busy immortalising the latest tawdry chapter of Trump's presidency in cartoon form.
Here are some of the best ones:
