The cover of the upcoming issue of The New Yorker features an image of Donald Trump standing nude as he answers questions from a gaggle of reporters with their hands in the air. A judiciously placed lectern covers a crucial part of the president’s anatomy as he points to a member of the press.
The illustrator, Barry Blitt said, “I wanted to address President Trump’s stormy relationship with the press,” (“I can definitely describe his junk perfectly,” Stormy Daniels said, of her own relationship with Trump.)
Critics said the image was disgusting and repulsive. They accused the magazine of body shaming the President and said the fact it was being directed at Trump, who has many critics, still doesn’t make it OK. Even people who dislike Trump commented saying it was inappropriate.
