The magazine’s Oct. 10 cover by Barry Blitt, entitled “Miss Congeniality,” references Trump’s treatment of the former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, which Hillary Clinton brought up Monday during the first presidential debate.
Speaking with “Fox & Friends” the next morning, the Republican nominee doubled down on his attack of Machado, saying “She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem with her.”
Clearly, it was a flashpoint.
“Watching the debate, Blitt recognized a significant moment in the Presidential campaign,” a spokeswoman for the magazine said in a statement. “Of all Trump’s dangerous beliefs, Blitt said, his misogyny ‘might just be his Achilles’ heel.’”
Blitt has made Trump one of his favorite subjects. His Feb. 1 cover illustration showed a group of past U.S. presidents in various states of distress watching Trump speak on television. In August, another Blitt cover showed Trump drenched in rain.
