The cover of this week’s New Yorker hits on exactly what Donald Trump is doing in the Republican presidential primary: making waves.
The New Yorker explains that the Barry Blitt-drawn cover — titled “Belly Flop” — is a reference to Trump’s brazen style and impact on the 2016 presidential field. “Donald Trump has entered the fray of Republican Presidential candidates with all the grace of a bully doing cannonballs and belly flops at the local swimming pool,” Blitt said, according to the New Yorker.
“Trump never fails to provide hours of slack-jawed amazement,” Blitt said.
Though few analysts believe that he actually has a shot at clinching the nomination, Trump’s entry into the field has shaken up the race over the past month. [more]
