Donald Trump Isn’t Going To Like This Magazine Cover
EXCERPT: HUFFINGTON POST
President Donald Trump kicked the huddled masses to the curb this week, signing off on a hastily implemented, potentially unconstitutional executive order late last Friday that halted travel to the U.S. of more than 200 million people from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
The order also blocks all refugees for 120 days and bans Syrian refugee resettlement indefinitely.
In case the true meaning of the act was lost on anyone, Germany’s Der Spiegel decided to illustrate it and use the graphic metaphor as its magazine cover, set to be published Saturday:
Fittingly, the cover’s illustrator, Edel Rodriguez, is himself a U.S. immigrant from Cuba. Rodriguez told The Washington Post that the cover speaks for itself.
“It’s a beheading of democracy, a beheading of a sacred symbol,” he said. “And clearly, lately, what’s associated with beheadings is ISIS, so there’s a comparison” to be made between the terror group and Trump. “Both sides are extremists, so I’m just making a comparison between them.”
