New Yorker's 'Blowhard' Named Magazine Cover Of The Year

The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) Tuesday named The New Yorker's Aug. 28, 2017 "Blowhard" cover its magazine "Cover of the Year."

The cover, illustrated by David Plunkert, features Trump-like character in a sailboat blowing hard on the ship's sail, which has eye holes cut into like a Ku Klux Klan hood.

“President Trump’s weak pushback to hate groups—as if he was trying not to alienate them as voters—compelled me to take up my pen,” Plunkert said as the magazine hit newsstands last summer.

Other winners in the 12th annual ASME Best Covers Contest include Entertainment Weekly's election-themed RuPaul cover, “Let’s Hear It for the Red, White and Ru," which won the "Readers' Choice Award."
