New York Magazine is taking a stand against President Trump with its brutal new cover which depicts the president with a pig snout.
The April 2 issue of the magazine features a zoomed in photograph of Trump with pig features
“Not Collusion… Not Incompetence… Not Cruelty… It’s the Corruption, Stupid,” the headline reads. “Why His Self-Dealing is His Biggest Political Liability.”

The cover story includes the headlines, “Corruption, Not Russia, Is Trump’s Greatest Political Liability,” hitting Trump for what the magazine insists is “corruption” and “greed” in nearly all areas of his White House, ranging from his political appointees to his decision to allow his sons to take over his business after he assume office.
“Since Trump took office, his pledge to ignore his own interests has been almost forgotten, lost in a disorienting hurricane of endless news,” New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait writes. “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.”
“Not only has Trump made no effort to raise ethical standards but he and his administration have flamboyantly violated the existing guidelines,” Chait writes. “Lobbyists are seeded in every agency, ‘regulating’ their former employers and designing rules that favor bosses over employees and business owners over consumers.”
The article follows after a major staff shakeup within the administration caused several of Trump’s top officials to face daunting criticism.
