I see Trump acting like a child, swinging his arms at Lady Justice like he wants to fight her to get what he wants from her. Lady Justice is looking at Lady Liberty (Statue of Liberty) telling her "I got this.". Lady Liberty (Statue of Liberty) is looking disappointed/mad at Trump and what he's gonna do.

Since Donald Trump is now the president he wants to take over Lady Liberty and Lady Justice is preventing him from doing that and Lady Justice told Lady Liberty "I got this".

I see trump trying to fight "Lady Justice" the judge that block his ban.
2/13/2017 02:09:14 pm
Yes, we do see that but what do you think that mean? I think this is trying to tell us that our freedom as the american people will always be safe and lady justice would make sure of that.

These images matter because it explains and portrays how the Muslim ban on people from 7 countries that weren't allowed in the U.S because of Donald trumps ban. Donald trumps ban was an attack on american and non-american people's freedom. A federal judge then came forward and removed the ban due to how it violates the peoples rights and freedom. Donald trump was then outraged and tweeted about the judge and how the country should't trust the judge and that if anything bad was to happen to the country it'll be the judges fault.

After reading over your comment, I would agree with you because Trump can't ban them. Their are no evidence that people from seven country have not attack the U.S.

Lady Justice and Lady Liberty make this image significant because both of them do not want Donald Trump to dictate.Lady Justice represents the Federal Judge which blocks Trumps order.In the image Lady Liberty looks dissapointed with her arms crossed because of Trumps ban on Muslims which as he is swinging his arms at Lady Justice like he wants to fight her to get what he wants from her. Lady Justice is looking at Lady Liberty (Statue of Liberty) telling her "I got this."
2/9/2017 09:06:53 am
i feel trump thinkshe is doing the "right thing" by banning muslims when in reality he's not. he's only destorying families and lives. im not "taking side" or "defending" him, im just saying thats probably the best way to protect the country (well, his ideqa of protecting the country.)
2/9/2017 09:09:54 am
In the image, Trump wanting to fight Lady Justice shows that he's blaming the judge and court system for the consequences of blocking his Muslim ban order. Lady Liberty's look of disappointment towards Trump symbolizes his ban on Muslims. Lady Justice holding back Trump symbolizes the federal judge blocking Trump's order.
2/9/2017 11:17:01 am
The message of this cartoon is that Donald Trump is trying to take advantage of his power. Also lady justice is helping out lady liberty by putting Donald Trump in his place by not letting him do as he pleases . This is significant because this has been done in the past by people that we learn about today like Hitler and Mussolini.
2/9/2017 11:17:11 am
the message of this cartoon is that trump is trying to overthrow the justice and liberty system. He made a ban for muslims/immigrants which is not staying true the liberty of freedom. This is significant because by having that ban and trying to other things such as a wall it creates no justice for anyone well except for people who agree with him.
2/9/2017 11:17:39 am
The message of this cartoon is showing how Trump's attempt to take away people's freedom or liberty, which made a lot of people upset/angry as personified into the Statue of Liberty, turned out to be futile as the justice system, personified as Statue of Justice, made the order to block his the Muslim ban that he had ordered as it was not constitutional.
2/9/2017 11:17:47 am
The message of this cartoon is simple, the justice system doing it's job. There job being to make sure the president is following the constitution which in this case the "Muslim ban" order wasn't an order that followed the constitution. Even if his form of protection was this order. Its a form of dictatorship, in a way to make people have someone at fault and then run to him for safety when something goes wrong.
2/9/2017 11:18:38 am
well from looking at thus image you can clearly see that Donald Trump is trying to beat a power which he clearly cannot win . This country has protection which we can protect ourselves from like people like Trump .The judicial branch has blocked the executive order which Trump has made, which shows theirs people that have the same about of power as he does , so he can be stopped , we do have protection.
2/9/2017 11:18:41 am
I believe that Trump wants to attack Lady justice for blocking his Muslim bad order. Lady justice represents the judge James Robart. Lady Liberty looks disappointed because Trumps Muslim ban goes against what she stands for. This is significant because, since Trump outwardly says the judicial branch is bad, then people won't take them serious and will only take his word as the president seriously.
2/9/2017 11:20:34 am
The message of this cartoon is showing that justice can surely stop Donald Trump. With Donald Trump's recent ban on Muslims a judge from Washington, James Robot stopped the ban and is now letting them fly in from the countries Trump said were not allowed to. Lady Justice says, "I got this" because she will not let the Trump take her freedom and liberty.

* James Robart
2/9/2017 11:21:25 am
I see that there are three different people in this image. I see lady liberty, Lady justice, and last but not least President Trump. First off, i see that Trump is fighting or disagreeing with Lady justice. I see the Lady liberty standing off to the side with her arms crossed over one another which probably mans that she is angry or not happy about some situation. Lady liberty looks like she wants no part of that fight. I am guessing that this cartoon was made about the Muslim Ban that Trump has put in place for his first executive order. I also see that Trump is way, way smaller than Lady justice and Lady liberty. I have many questions about this particular difference but i am carefully assuming that it means that no matter what Trump does the Lady Liberty and the Lady justice might have a more powerful advantage over Mr "president" Trump
2/9/2017 11:21:44 am
Trump always wants to do things that are against peoples liberty and justice. In this image he is trying to fight against lady justice which represents peoples liberty and balance in life. As an example of Trump violating people's rights is the Muslim ban. Statue of liberty represents freedom in this country and she looks disappointed. I believe the disappointments comes from people not having the freedom they are promised coming into this country. President Trump does not have all the power as president that is why the representation of lady liberty and the statue of liberty is important because when the people come together they can be more powerful them Trump.
2/9/2017 11:21:52 am
President Trump wants all the power. This image signifies his anger towards higher power;he technically wants to take over. Trump recently signed an executive order to ban certain people from certain countries into the United States, even if they're allowed to be here. Not so long ago, a federal judge was able to repeal that law. He was able to remove this law due to the fact that it violates the rights of these people. This made Trump even more angry, to get him to tweet that we as America people shall not trust our federal judges and that the decisions they make our "bad".
2/9/2017 11:21:55 am
The message of this cartoon in my opinion is Justice and Liberty should have say in whatever is going on, that is why Lady Justice and Statue of liberty is bigger than him. Although the power is supposed to be equal, Trump does not want it that way. For instance the cartoon represents the action of judge Robarts blocking the Muslim ban, and Trump hates that he could not just decide the decision of that. Statue of liberty is mad because her purpose is not even being used, to her full extent. That is because she represents freedom and people, in this case people i the 7 countries can not come in and out of this country.
2/9/2017 11:22:34 am
To me this image portrays Trump trying to miss with liberty nut justice is stop him. This is show because justice is stopping trump from getting to t liberty.This show how the judge stop trump ban on some nation
2/9/2017 11:22:40 am
The cartoons message is about Trumps ban being blocked by a federal judge. This is significant because it demonstrates how the Judicial Branch checks and balances the Presidents power. The Judicial Branch protects our freedom. That is the message of this cartoon
2/9/2017 11:24:52 am
I think the image represents how the judge blocked the Muslim ban.And how Trump is trying to fight so it can go back and ban immigrants from coming into the United States.The statue of liberty seems mad because what trump is doing of banning people from the U.S. Trump said that if any terrorism occurs that it will be the judges fault. How Trump is banning Muslims makes me think of how Hitler banned Jews and i think that Trump wants to be a dictator just like Hitler.
2/9/2017 11:25:27 am
To begin, I see Trump, Lady Justice and Lady Liberty. Trump happens to be a small man compared to the ladies and he has his arms swinging towards Lady Justice as if he wants something from her or trying to fight against her, which represents the acts he is doing to the USA and going against liberty and justice for all. While Lady Justice holds him back blocking him to reach what he wants, she is blindfolded holding a balance scale and turned towards Lady Liberty and saying, "I got this." Symbolizing a federal judge from Washington blocking the order that Trump has set forth. Lady Liberty, on the far right, looking disappointed and mad with her arms crossed because she is one to give freedom to all people and even immigrants which goes against the act that Trump ordered. The previously mentioned ties back to the reality of what happened during the weekend. A judge blocked Trump's order and Trump tweeted all over Twitter questioning the power that the judge had which is giving him more power than a judge.
2/9/2017 11:26:23 am
Donald Trump, as the president of the United States of America has ban Muslims from entering the country. James Robart (republican judge in the state of Washington) had blocked this ban, allowing them to enter. In the image Trumps arms are swinging fighting against Lady Justice. This shows us that he thinks he would be able to defeat a higher power but obviously can't. The Lady Justice is holding back Trump and saying to the statue of liberty, "I got this." This symbolizes a federal judge blocking trumps order. The statue of liberty looking disappointed/mad with her arms crossed is symbolic of Trumps Muslim Ban because the statue is a sign of freedom. In the Daily Show we seen that Trump called the federal judge a "so-called judge" and that any future terrorism attacks will be blamed on the judge. This judge is doing his job by following the laws and the constitution.
2/9/2017 11:26:23 am
The message to this picture is that Trump wants to violate the rights of the people by doing something that is unconstitutional like the Muslim Ban, but Lady Liberty wont let him. In the image above, the Statue of Liberty is disappointed at what Donald Trump has done, as in restrict freedom to others around the world because the Statue of Liberty is the symbol of freedom. Meaning that people should be allowed to come in to America without being banned just because of one's religion or ethnicity. This is significant because it shows how he is trying to fight the judge in the state of Washington, questioning the judge's legitimate power, but he is only doing is job. Trump states that if the U.S. gets attacked, questioning our safety, to blame that judge. I believe that this is what dictators do to remove other's from the government to gain all power, leaving Trump with all power to do what he wants with America.
2/9/2017 11:27:17 am
The message of the cartoon is trump can try and do things that are unconstitutional but justice will fight back against these things. As depicted in the image trumped tried to pass his Muslim ban but the federal judge stopped his ban . it also shows lady's liberty it personifies the feelings of the people of America because of the ban.

The message is that the court is protecting the people from the ban that trump.he wants to get though but the courts are rejecting his ban on muslims people.so as long as that is happening then muslims are protected.
2/10/2017 09:48:56 am
this is simbly show us that trump is trying to take justice from people
2/13/2017 01:01:59 pm
I agree with this because Trump is trying to to take justice away fro people but it was banned.
2/10/2017 11:52:11 am
The message of this cartoon is that Trump was trying to make his Muslim Ban permanent but a federal judge blocked Trump's order.This is significant because Trump's Muslim Ban is unconstitutional and the countries he's trying to ban barely even have Muslims,which doesn't make sense because he isn't banning the country with the most Muslims.
Saul period 5
2/10/2017 11:55:39 am
With the image of the cartoon, I think the image tried to say Trump have tried to ban Muslim and take their freedom away, but judges won't let him. Why is significant because this ban have happen before, and judges won't let it happen. My reation to this was relive that many Musilm could vist their family.
2/10/2017 11:57:09 am
Power in this country should be equal, but Trump doesn't see it that way.In this cartoon, Lady Liberty is looking disappointed wich symbolizes Trump's ban on muslims, showing that there is no freedom of the people.This is significant because Lady Justice and Lady Liberty are standing against Trump.
2/13/2017 01:56:41 pm
I agree, Trump doesn't see it that way. I think he just wants all power to himself and thinks he can have any executive order be done but he doesn't get his way but won't give up.
2/10/2017 12:00:12 pm
This cartoon sends the message to me saying that President Donald Trump is trying to get the the Statue of Liberty.The Statue of Liberty's touch light the way to freedom show the people a way to liberty.The statues name officially represents "Liberty enlightening the world.Lady Justice s blocking Donald Trump for trying to destroy the peoples in Americas rights to freedom.

This cartoon shows the queen of justice lady justice blocking Trump from taking liberty away from people but on this day she has done it again and she blocked him and his muslim ban and said " I don't think so honey " now he is having a fit like a baby talking about taking it to court but did you just forgot this was in court you fool
2/10/2017 12:14:23 pm
i think this image is trying to say that trump is not as powerful as he think he is.
2/10/2017 02:27:14 pm
In my opinion this image is trying to say that Trump may be trying to overthrow the justice and liberty system. Trump is trying to do multiple of things in his power.However, it shows that he doesn't have much power as he thinks he does, there's somethings he can't be doing for example, when he did the "Muslim Ban" .
2/10/2017 02:27:48 pm
Trump wants to take liberty away from the country. But there is always justice to be served.
2/10/2017 02:33:16 pm
In this picture it shows how trump is trying to beat something he cannot and he'll wont stop trying. It seems as if lady justice is protecting us from trump so he wont take our liberty away either. Also means that the judicial branch has blocked his executive order as well.

D.Trump is someone that thinks just because he has money that he can get what he wants and now that he is the office he is trying to do the same thing but this time there are people that see what he is trying to do and are trying to stop him he feels the need to bend everything to his will and he has found people that are not going to let him get everything he wants and he is trying to put up a fight be he is not wining

The message of this cartoon is that Trump made a ban for the Muslims and it was blocked by Lady Justice (lady in blindfold). Lady Justice represents the judge who blocked President Trump's ban. The Statue of Liberty represents the people (in the picture but in reality Lady of Liberty represents freedom). Moral of everything, Trump's ban was blocked not once but TWICE and this is significant because he was trying to keep Muslims out of the US and I personally feel that people can go wherever they please. it impacted a lot of Muslims because they haven't done anything to Trump for him to put a ban on them.

Trump is to busy fighting trying to get his way however he's having a hard time with that.
2/13/2017 02:02:10 pm
Trump shouldn't be trying to ban all these countries to began with. He is is too busy trying to fight the court system he is avoiding the bigger problems we have that a "president" should be.
