Iowa Newspaper Apologizes for 'Inexcusable' Political Cartoon Vivek Ramaswamy Called 'Shameful'

The cartoon depicts Ramaswamy, a second-generation Indian American at a sparsely

attended campaign stop of “MAGA friends” — a reference to former President Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan, but more so what the cartoonist apparently believes to be the slack-jawed, racist yokels who support the MAGA movement. One voter at the rally points his finger and calls Ramaswamy a “Muslim!!” Another yells out, “Show us your birth certificate!!!” And yet another mockingly screams, “Get me a Slushee Apu!!!”
