The New Yorker Cover Shows Trump Naked

March 19, 2018

Classic cover–says it all.  (The use of pecs rather than Trump’s man-breasts are the only fault I have with artwork.)

Now, New Yorker artist Barry Blitt gets a shot at fleshing out his perception of Trump and his “stormy relationship” with the press, as he described it to the magazine. For the New Yorker’s new cover, titled “Exposed,” Blitt depicts the president strategically positioned behind the lectern, for all the media to see.

The image “recalls the prophet Bob Dylan, who once noted, in ‘It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding),’ that ‘even the President of the United States must sometimes have to stand naked,’ ” the New Yorker’s art director Françoise Mouly writes in a post on the magazine’s website.

“There’s always something interesting,” Blitt told The Washington Post’s Comic Riffs last fall, about Trump as tableaux. “I’m sort of attacking him fresh each time, visually.”
