The New Yorker magazine announced on Twitter that its front page in October will feature a drawing of President Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, as mobsters murdering Uncle Sam.
The front page comes amid headlines over Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which he said Ukraine should look into why a top prosecutor was fired. Trump also asked Zelensky to investigate hacks of DNC email servers.
The magazine’s Oct. 7 edition will highlight a drawing by cartoonist Barry Blitt titled “Whack Job,” the New Yorker tweeted Friday morning. It depicts the president and his lawyer as murderers, and Uncle Sam, a personification of the U.S. federal government, tied up with his feet encased in cement so that he drowns.

Trump and Giuliani are pushing Uncle Sam over what appears to be a bridge. The tweet links to a short description of the news behind the drawing, which is about the “drama” of formal impeachment proceedings launched earlier this week.
“Barry Blitt, ever the first responder, takes on the drama in the cover for next week’s magazine,” The New Yorker reads.
