New Yorker Magazine Under Fire for Body-Shaming Trump

Donald Trump

People are slamming New Yorker magazine over its latest magazine cover, which depicts President Trump addressing reporters while completely nude in an attempt to mock his appearance.

The magazine gave a sneak preview Friday of its latest edition and got a flood of responses criticizing the magazine for “body-shaming” the president.

“This cover is an outrage. Donald Trump is the President of the United States. As a lifelong Democrat, I strongly oppose his views but he is still the President of the United States and is due an apology,” one user tweeted. “He is someone’s father husband and friend. He deserves better.”

Another user called the magazine “a junk publication” for treating the president and lifelong New Yorker disrespectfully.

“Imagine the s–t storm had Madame @HillaryClinton won and a magazine had decided to run a cover of her along these lines,” another user wrote.

Members of the media also weighed in on the magazine cover, with some even taking the opportunity to mock the president’s weight.

“My guess is that Trump will not love the new New Yorker cover,” Think Progress editor Judd Legum tweeted.

Washington Post media columnist Erik Wemple penned an entire column praising the cover’s artist for pointing out the size of Trump’s extremities in an apparent jab at the president’s physique.

The trend of “fat-shaming” Trump is nothing new.

Many celebrities and politicians mocked Trump’s weight in January after Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician, released the results of the president’s physical.

Hollywood director James Gunn offered to give $100,000 to Trump’s favorite charity if the president agreed to weigh himself on “an accurate scale” following his physical exam.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry mocked Trump’s weight at a dinner in Washington, DC, in January shortly after Jackson made the results of Trump’s physical public. Kerry asked that the president release his “girth certificate.”


George W. Bush: Trump ‘Makes Me Look Pretty Good’ by Comparison


Former President George W. Bush reportedly remarked that President Donald Trump’s administration makes his time in the White House “look pretty good,” according to a Republican source.

“Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: ‘Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn’t it?’” the source told National Journal.

The Trump administration told the outlet that the former Republican president regularly criticizes Trump’s administration for being in a state of chaos.

“He’s shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can’t get their act together,” the source added. “He wants the guy to succeed but thinks a lot of his problems are self-inflicted.”

The younger Bush has a history of criticizing Trump in public. In an October speech at the George W. Bush Institute, he slammed the president’s nationalist ideology, all while arguing that globalism and foreign intervention is key for the U.S. to succeed in the future.

“We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, and forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America,” he said.

Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush, has been less subtle about his dislike for Trump. The elder Bush bashed Trump in a book released in November, attacking the current president’s leadership style and character.

“I don’t like him,” George H.W. Bush said in the book. “I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.”

The 41st president told the New York Times in November that he cast a vote for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton instead of Trump in the 2016 election and that his son did not vote for either candidate.


President Trump Just Gave Americans 1 Surprise Gift Package – A Historic $250 Billion Windfall

By all rational accounts, President Donald Trump’s recently completed overseas trip was a rousing success.

Sure, there has been plenty of shade thrown in the commander-in-chief’s direction by those that suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. But don’t let that fool you.

Trump flew across the Pacific with some crystal clear goals in mind, and he returned after making tremendous progress towards making them happen.

On top of that, the president has been lauded for his efforts by other world leaders, all of whom seem to have tremendous respect for the man that currently occupies the Oval Office.

To top it all off, Trump has shared some additional fantastic news about some major accomplishments from his trip.

Western Journalism shares the details.

“President Donald Trump announced Thursday roughly $250 billion in deals between American businesses and China.

On his final day in Beijing, Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping oversaw a ceremony in which corporate giants such as Boeing and Qualcomm signed multibillion-dollar deals.

This is truly a miracle,’ China’s Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said at a news briefing in Beijing.

For Trump’s part, he made it clear that these deals will help to balance out the massive trade deficit that was dropped in his lap by predecessors.

He would even acknowledge that he didn’t blame China for taking advantage of deals that were in its best interest, but he succinctly noted that those days are over.

“But, in actuality, I do blame past administrations for allowing this out-of-control trade deficit to take place and to grow.

We have to fix this because it just doesn’t work for our great American companies, and it doesn’t work for our great American workers.

It is just not sustainable. I look forward to working toward that goal and to pursuing fair and lasting engagement,” he said.

In short, Trump continues to deliver on one of his biggest promises: to make sure that American interests comes first as he negotiates deals that work for all parties.

To have such a stance spun as a negative is nothing short of mind-blowing, but those with TDS have a tremendous talent for seeing rain clouds when the sun is obviously shining.

For the rest of us, we can continue enjoying the sunny days and look forward to many more to come.
