The New Yorker, known for its biting wit, released next week's cover in an early sneak-peek tweet posted Friday morning that had Twitter users applauding and clamoring for more.
The cover shows a wisp of Trump's notorious comb over poking out of a black hole, set against a stark white background.
It's called “In the Hole” and is reportedly:
Artist Anthony Russo’s response to President Trump’s recent comments about immigration.
The new cover garnered new subscribers:
And plenty of fans:
It inspired people to imagine the possibilities:

It's funny how the hole this "shit" head is in, is actually "oval" shaped and dark.— Gary E Walker (@Gary_E_Walker) January 13, 2018

guys. guys. that hole ain't deep enough. at all. also it should be done from the perspective of the bottom of the hole looking up and seeing a tiny tiny dot of light.— I am Danielle (@ashuping) January 12, 2018
