The New Yorker magazine burned President Trump with its new cover depicting the fraudulent commander-in-chief playing golf in a swamp full of snakes and alligators.
The issue, which is scheduled to hit the shelves on May 21, features artwork showing the president wearing golf clothes while taking a swing surrounded by swamp creatures.
The cover, which refers to Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington while running for office, comes amid a growing scandal Trump faces involving adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges that she had an affair with Trump more than a decade ago.
While Trump has denied the affair, Daniels is suing to void a nondisclosure agreement that she claims prevents her from speaking publicly about the affair.
She was paid $130,000 by Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, prior to the 2016 election, which Daniels says was intended to keep her quiet about the affair.
Cohen has also acknowledged that he paid Daniels, but insists it came from his personal funds and was not tied to the Trump campaign.
It was recently revealed that Cohen was in contact with a number other companies offering consulting services in the days after Trump won the 2016 election.
Several members of the Trump administration have also been mired in controversy.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, for example, is facing probes and pressure to resign over reports of massive corruption.
Pruitt rented a Capitol Hill condo from the wife of a prominent energy lobbyist for $50 a day only on the days he stayed at the condo. It was also revealed his travel and security habits have cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and that he reportedly approved raises for two staffers despite the White House rejecting the requests for pay increases.
Here’s the New Yorker’s latest cover on Trump.
