Barry Blitt is a Canadian cartoonist and illustrator known for his The New Yorker covers and as a regular contributor to the op-ed page of the failing NY Times. Blitt creates his works in traditional pen and ink, and watercolors.

Blitt’s newest cover for The New Yorker is his 15th to feature Donald Trump. Blitt:

”The gift that keeps on grifting…”

The image of POTUS at the lectern, poised nude and cross-legged, recalls Bob Dylan, who in It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)  sings that ”even the President of the United States must sometimes have to stand naked”.

Blitt sends sketches to the magazine each week; this one was chosen from a batch his ideas on gun control and the death of Stephen Hawking.

Blitt:

”I wanted to address President Trump’s stormy relationship with the press”.

And by ”stormy”, he might mean Stormy Daniels, who said:

”I can definitely describe his junk perfectly.”

Blitt is not the first The New Yorker illustrator to take on the relationship between the press and POTUS in times of scandal. 20-years ago, a few weeks after news broke of William Jefferson Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, the great Art Spiegelman drew POTUS ringed by a lowered group of microphones. Spiegelman’s sketch was initially rejected, before being accepted by the magazine a week later. By that time, thousands of copies had already been printed with a different cover and had to be recalled.
