The New Yorkers new cover is out and some people think its gone too far. Warning: scary clown






A new cover from “The New Yorker” is causing some strife on conservative social media sites with its cartoonish depiction of President Donald Trump. “October Surprise,” by Carter Goodrich depicts President Donald Trump in a fat, clown suit and makeup.


The clown version of President Trump peers out from within a forest, with an evil smile wrapped around his face. The cartoon, clown Trump is more akin to something out of a Steven King horror novel, than anything pleasant.

When the cover was released, conservative social media went into a frenzy, including one of Trump’s biggest supporters.

Carter Goodrich’s “October Surprise”
My whole life has been disrupted. It’s a national nightmare,” the artist Carter Goodrich says, about his cover for this week’s issue: a painting of the President whom he calls a “dangerous clown.” “I’m still just as stunned now as I was a year ago, on Election Night. I have been asked to work on movies about him. I can’t do it; most satire seems to lighten what feels to me like a dire situation. He’s already a cartoon villain, infantile and strange.”

1. they are so delusional

“True root of all animus towards @realDonaldTrump (including #NFL fiasco) is the current ethos that hates strong/hetero/Christian/white men,” one user added.

The animus against Trump is that he is an unAmerican Putin wannabe. He does not exhibit strength or Christian characteristics.

He is mentally, physically, morally, emotionally and intellectually a weakling.

Its an insult to Christ to claim that Trump in any way follows or embodies Christ-like actions or beliefs.

22. Liberals are oppressing them so much

they have pundits constantly talking about how the left is taking away their freedoms and fundamentally altering the very nature of America.

Weakness lies in diversity/inclusion and feminism and LGBTs apparently.

Still the greatest argument I've seen for banning transgender soldiers is that the enemy has trained dogs to sniff out menstrual blood which puts all our soldiers at risk. Transwomen don't have periods and never will. Most transmen stop having periods because of the testosterone.

Has no one told Trump and his supporters that obesity lowers testosterone?

That's not typical vocabulary for the reality-challenged.

The huge broadbrush devaluation of everyone who doesn't agree with him, though, is perfectly typical.

Of course many conservatives are offended. They truly don't understand what they've done.

Not all would mourn what we are in danger of losing if they did, either. Government of, by and for the people is a responsibility many are anxious to turn over to a leader.

He should have drawn him with a grossly big stomach and 2 double chins and stepping on a starving Puerto Rican child. Then it would have been perfect, but hey, it's an excellent effort and I applaud him for this.

Perhaps they'll add a definition:

A well-justified fear of Donald Trump.

depictions of our former President Obama. Many were racist, insulting and went way too far. Where were they when he was regularly sketched, painted and photoshopped in the most disrespectful way? This cartoon of tRump is certainly no worse and in MANY respects is spot on. He is our worst nightmare come to life.

37. I'm thinking of becoming alt right, so much work for me

I will have to develop personal elitism, stop smiling at every person I meet, get a gun, go to a shooting range with my grandkids, learn how to hate gays, other women, all minorities, totally change my view of Christianity into some kind of narrow range of love for white men only, stop giving to charities, be prepared to shoot all minorities on sight for no reason, except they are different or other, embrace the rape culture and love corporations, the dirtier the better, banks, too. Of course, I will have to love all things putin, sit on the flag and use the U.S. Constitution, except the 2nd Amendment, to wipe off my shoes, all the while condemning sports figures who protest getting shot on sight by quasi-military local police, discontinue my healthcare, cancel my Social Security and Medicare, pay higher and higher premiums on my other kinds of insurance. Plus, I must not only condemn public education, but also set aside my own top-notch edukation, and stop all that book larnin. There is so much more, but the going down hill takes less time and energy than finding and taking the high road.

I am being sarcastic, because I'd rather be dead than red (state)

Yet we hear something like that from Trump voters who now claim remorse. The most malevolent clown emerged from the Republican clown car during the Primary. To all his supporters who claimed “He sounds like me”, you are correct it does not matter if you now feel remorse.

“(I)t’s difficult to effectively parody the man,” Goodrich wrote of Trump.

“Everything about him is low hanging fruit. He’s already a walking, talking cartoon of himself.”


There may be a thing or three that are not low-hanging about the short-fingered vulgarian.

Just sayin’ we don’t know...
