New York magazine depicts US President Donald Trump as a pig

  • Donald Trump has been lambasted on the cover of New York Magazine in a photoshopped image depicting him as a pig
  • The April 2 issue of the magazine features a close-up photo of Trump with a pig’s snout replacing his nose

New York Magazine took a shot at President Donald Trump on its April 2 cover by depicting the US president as a pig.

“Not Collusion… Not Incompetence… Not Cruelty… It’s the Corruption, Stupid: Why His Self-Dealing is His Biggest Political Liability” is the story’s headline.

Written by Jonathan Chait, the article takes into the swirling corruption allegations against the Trump administration; many of which surround his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

“Since Trump took office,” writer Jonathan Chait states. “His pledge to ignore his own interests has been almost forgotten, lost in a disorienting hurricane of endless news. It is not just a morbid joke but a legitimate problem for the opposition that all the bad news about Trump keeps getting obscured by other bad news about Trump.”
