The New Yorker Cover Shows Us the Wall

It's coming.

Cover-Story-Staake-The-Wall-875x1200-1478824922The 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.
