There is no line the left won’t cross…
A Canadian cartoonist’s illustration of President Donald Trump playing golf over the bodies of two drowned migrants went viral. Two days later, Michael de Adder said on Twitter that he had been let go by a publishing company in New Brunswick, Canada.
De Adder’s illustration depicted Trump asking the two dead migrants, “Do you mind if I play through?”
The cartoon refers to the image of Oscar Alberto Martínez and his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria. The two drowned while attempting to cross the Rio Grande River to get into the United States.

“The highs and lows of cartooning. Today I was just let go from all newspapers in New Brunswick.”
Brunswick News Inc. confirmed that it canceled a freelance contract with de Adder but said “it is entirely incorrect to suggest” that it was because of the Trump cartoon.
