‘Exposed’: The New Yorker’s Latest Trump-Themed Cover is a Little NSFW

The New Yorker is going balls out with their latest cover, titled “Exposed.”

The cover features an illustration of a stark-naked President Donald Trump, his manhood obscured by a White House podium, as he calls on a room of reporters.

Artist Barry Blitt is responsible for the depiction, and made a coy reference to porn star Stormy Daniels — who is suing the president over an NDA she signed to keep quiet about their alleged affair — in his comments about the cover.

“I wanted to address President Trump’s stormy relationship with the press,” Blitt said.

In the New Yorker’s piece on the cover, they include a quote from Daniels: “I can definitely describe his junk perfectly.”

The New Yorker added that his illustration invokes Bob Dylan’s lyrics from song “It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding),” that “even the President of the United States must sometimes have to stand naked.”

The magazine explained further:

Blitt sends sketches to the magazine each week; this one was chosen from a batch that included riffs on school shootings and the death of Stephen Hawking. Once the image was selected, Blitt honed the cast and contour of certain love handles, then glazed the work in his signature watercolors.
