On next week’s New Yorker cover: Donald Trump, in the flesh.
The magazine unveiled its upcoming cover Friday morning, featuring an original watercolor from illustrator Barry Blitt. It depicts the president taking press questions, fully naked, from behind the lectern. The cover artwork is aptly titled, “Exposed.”
“I wanted to address President Trump’s stormy relationship with the press,” Blitt told the magazine.
Blitt’s been working with the magazine since 1992, and is known for his controversial covers. In 2008, he and The New Yorker drew criticism from Barack Obama’s campaign and others for a cover illustration depicting the then-presidential nominee and his wife Michelle wearing a turban, and toting a gun, respectively, in the White House Oval Office. The magazine defended the cover as satire.
“Exposed” is just one of Blitt’s many covers that feature Trump.
Now, go Google some photos of puppies or something. Your brain needs it.
