“But the Empress has No Clothes.” Cried a Child!

Every Political Cartoon Tells a Story – San Francisco Mayor London Breed Special Edition

Cartoon of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” starring @LondonBreed & her advisors @mattdorsey @BrookeJenkinsSF @NancyTungSF.

Fairy tale is about a vain emperor who gets exposed before his subjects.

The emperor hires 2 tailors (con men) to make him a new invisible suit.

They tell the emperor their material is so fine, only intelligent people can see it.

His advisors, afraid of being thought stupid, praise the new suit.

The tailors mime dressing the emperor and he sets off in a parade before the whole city.

The townsfolk go along with the pretense, not wanting to appear stupid, until a child blurts out the emperor is wearing nothing at all!
