The magazine Bohemia published this political cartoon on December 13, 1936. Here, a comical-looking President Gómez is conversing with another man who asks him “the significance of the knot in the handkerchief” that lies on the desk before him. Gómez replies, “It is to remember that I am the President.” Taunting Gómez became great sport during his brief administration.
