'This was drawn on the eve of the Capitol Hill riots as Donald Trump was waiting to find out the Republicans' fate in two elections in the state of Georgia. The election was being rerun because of the state's rule that a candidate must take 50 per cent of the vote in order to win, which none had managed in November's election. In the end, Joe Biden's presidency received an enormous boost with the voters of Georgia handing control of the Senate to the Democrats.' - Peter Brookes
