Magazine Covers Hit Trump Hard Over Charlottesville
You probably won’t find these magazine covers hanging on walls at President Trump’s country clubs.
The Economist and The New Yorker released their cover illustrations this week, both depicting Trump in conjunction with Ku Klux Klan hoods. The Economist shows the president using a white hood as a megaphone and The New Yorker has him at the helm of a sailboat powered by a sail in the shape of a KKK hood. Trump is seen blowing into it.

The covers result from Trump’s controversial remarks about the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. last weekend. The subsequent car rampage resulted in the death of a woman, Heather Heyer, and injured 19 others. Trump, in remarks to reporters this week, restated his initial belief that “many sides” engaged in violence.
Another magazine took a different tack.
Time, who recently asked Trump to remove fake magazine covers from his properties, stayed away from a Trump-related cover. Instead, it has a cover illustration that shows a dark-haired man cloaked in an American flag making a Nazi salute.
The cover story in the issue leads with a headline, “Hate in America.”
