The latest cover of The New Yorker works in two ways.
The illustration, by Bob Staake, captures the feeling of finding out Donald Trump is our president-elect. “When we first received the results of the election, we felt as though we had hit a brick wall, full force,” explained New Yorker art director Françoise Mouly.
The cover also gives us a glimpse of one of Trump’s most famous campaign promises: A wall to keep others out. And all of us in.
