The next cover of the New Yorker is about to cause Donald Trump to get all bent out of shape. We can expect to see another outburst on Twitter, knowing that is his go to place to throw a tantrum.
The cover of the magazine depicts the relationship between the POTUS Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin using their classic mascot, Eustace Tilley. We all know that Russia played a part in Trump being elected as the President. Americans better be on their toes, this cover is insinuating that the United States is actually going to be run by Russia since Trump is so chummy with Putin, and if that happens we are in even more trouble.
New Yorker art director Françoise Mouly announced the cover by writing:
‘In a riff on the magazine’s first cover, from 1925, by Rea Irvin, [artist Barry Blitt] imagines a future in which our dandy mascot has become Eustace Vladimirovich Tilley and the lepidopteran under scrutiny is none other than a stunned Donald Trump.’
Just for a quick correlation of the two, here is the 1925 issue that first coined the classic mascot:
I’m sure we will all get a few laughs out of Trump’s rampage and I can’t wait.
