Compare And Contrast The Witch Trials Of 2016

Satisfactory Essays

The cartoon "The Witch Trials of 2016" is a combination of two separate events. The first event is the election of 2016. This is seen through Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton being the main focus of the cartoon. The other event is the Salem WItch Trials and this can be shown in the witch hats and the courtroom. The cartoon is comparing the two situation as one in the same. The comparison works together because of the similarities of chaos in both the Witch Trials and the Election. Trump is depicted as the judge and with that comes his authority or rather the illusion of it. Danforth didn’t have the actual say of what happened to the accused but instead the group of girls were the deciding factor. In the Crucible, the quote “I judge nothing.”
