Cover boy

Donald Trump is going to absolutely hate Newsweek’s latest cover

Donald Trump loves bragging about how many different magazine covers he’s graced over the years, even framing some of them and hanging them around his various properties. But somehow we have a feeling he won’t be doing that with the latest Newsweek’s cover.

The magazine’s most recent issue features a photo of Donald Trump looking rather, shall we say, frumpy, sitting in a La-z-boy recliner with a bag of Cheetos and other junk food, his smartphone, and a TV remote control.

Also emblazoned on the cover are the words: “LAZY BOY: Donald Trump is bored and tired. Imagine how bad he’d feel if he’d do any work.”

It then notes Trump’s accomplishes, or lack thereof, since taking office six month ago. Those accomplishments include 40 days at golf clubs and zero pieces of major legislation.

The cover story “Trump, America’s Boy King: Golf and Television Won’t Make America Great Again” questions how #45’s personal habits–his love of golf, watching TV, and tweeting–are the blame for much of the “disarray” happening within the White House.

Reporter Alexander Nazaryan writes:

Trump plainly wants his legacy to reflect that slogan on the baseball hat donned by his supporters. He wants to be the man who pulled America out of its postindustrial malaise, silenced talk of national decline and China’s ascent. But he can’t do that if he keeps sinking into his own debilitating malaise, weighed down by his shortcomings and an unwillingness to address them.

    Ah yes, Newsweek . . . I recall a time when it actually featured “news” articles, long before it became a propaganda arm of the DNC and was forced to go digital-only.

    • ChrisK

      You disputing the facts in there Mo Bro? Besides vacations what has he accomplished?

    • DCguy

      Oh Look, Mo Bros new screename doing his absolute best to not talk about the actual topic.

      So lets see Mo Bro…oh, I mean BRODY, which part did Newsweek get wrong? Trump has already taken more vacation time than Obama did his entire presidency. He is now taking 17 days of vacation.

      So what part of the article was propaganda, you didn’t seem to make that clear. But then again, that wasn’t your intention was it. You just desperately had to alter the topic because as an anti-lgbt troll only focused on covering for Trump, that’s your job.

    • BigWill

      Here, here. I too prefer “real news,” like the reports of the transcripts of Trump’s conversations with Mexico’s president and Australia’s PM. You think the rubes who thought he was actually going to force Mexico to build a wall were disappointed that the conversation was him admitting that Mexico wouldn’t pay for it but wheedling Nieto to please just stop saying that because it would make him (Trump) look bad? I wonder…

      (How you doin’, Fake Biracial Bisexual…I mean Mo?)

    • Brody

      You flakes who accuse me of posting under multiple screen names have issues that reach far beyond the political realm. A little amusing, a little disturbing, but definitely pathological.

      Also, signing 90 executive orders in 100 days was more than Obama did in 8 years, so it’s more than a little ironic that the left is labeling Trump a do-nothing.

    • Rex Huskey

      Hang in that Brody, ChrissyK and DCGurl will soon be joined by FarmGurl too and against you. While I don’t necessarily agree with you on most things….actually most times you’re full of s*it, I cannot stand these sissy vapid choirboys who “amen” the professional gay political party line. I find it disgusting to have to share anything uncommon with them.

    • Rex Huskey

      amended….”….share anything in common with them.”

    • jheryn

      I recall a time when people actually thought for themselves and didn’t accuse every person, magazine, newscast, etc. of being for the other side when those people and organizations say/report something that didn’t suit them.

    • Juanjo

      I just love how Brody aka MoBro has trotted out multiple sock puppets to support his latest foray into logical fallacy land. The comment about executive orders was especially amusing. You mean like the ones found illegal or unconstitutional by the court troll boy? Or the ones allowing mining interests to pump chemical pollution into the drinking water of millions of US citizens? The one kicking transsexuals out of the military – oh wait he hasn’t actually signed that one yet. When the reality is he has done nothing when it comes to legislation he proclaimed would be accomplished within days of his entering office – you know, like abolishing the ACA, revising the tax code etc, it is pretty clear he is a failure. No jobs plan, no infrastructure plan and of course his promise to wipe out ISIS within the first 30 days of his being president hasn’t been accomplished either.

      I just love how anyone or anything that points out an uncomfortable fact about your love interest is denounced as a propaganda arm of the DNC.

      “signing 90 executive orders in 100 days was more than Obama did in 8 years, ”
      Especially amusing as he went on and on about Obama’s misuse of the EO process. And most of the EO’s have no teeth, only asking congress to consider certain things. You probably like the EO’s that directly erode LGBT enfranchisement, don’t you.

      It is funny how in a thread dealing with actualities, you counter them with imagination and nothing more. Just as the person you are accused of being (the fake biracial gay man), you seem not to understand the difference between facts and conjecture. .

    • dwes09

      “no infrastructure plan”
      His infrastructure plan, to the extent he was capable of articulating it involves moving more infrastructure into the private structure while removing the regulation that keeps it uniform and safe and long lasting. What this will do is make sure his rural base sees little improvement in infrastructure, but that more urban contractors (his buddies likely) get to line their pockets.

      Newsweek was not a “propaganda arm of the DNC” and was not “forced” to go digital-only. The last print edition of Newsweek was printed December 31, 2012 – and the decision was made by its then editor-in-chief Tina Brown (from the UK) and IAC Chairman Barry Diller.

      The digital-only model is one that hundreds of outlets chose when the advent of mobile news outweighed printing costs vs. hard copy revenue sales. This is all searchable fact. The only thing this cover got wrong is the Photoshop of Tr*mp’s stomach – it’s much bigger than pictured. That’s searchable too.

      “Ah yes, Newsweek . . . I recall a time when it actually featured “news” articles, long before it became a propaganda arm of the DNC and was forced to go digital-only.”

      You are aware that its not just Democrats who hate the b*stard, right? He has a 33% approval rating. Currently you’re part of a fringe minority with your defense of this P.O.S. What’s wrong with you?

    • Spike


      Upsets you to see your god emperor displayed exactly how 70% of America and most of the world community views him?

      Actually, IMO, it’s a rather postitive portrayal. You know he is WAY fatter and no way his has looked down and seen his d*ck in years.

    • GayEGO

      I see you are confused because you are talking about Trump and his Tweety Bird tweets which is the only thing he does. He does not like the responsibilities of our POTUS as he is not winning, he just liked winning the election and now, he is frustrated and wants to do something else that makes him feel like a winner!

  • Roan

    The laziest, incompetent and most corrupt president in US history who has already spent 20% of his tenure on vacation on our dime and directs the money spent on him into his own companies takes a 3 week vacation paid for by US taxpayers then diverts the money spent on the vacation to his own companies. Again. Nothing to see here. Fake news. Lock her up.

    • Rex Huskey

      good one!

    • dwes09

      Too dull to be the most corrupt (though he does have his daughter and son-in-law to help him with that). But certainly incompetent and lazy!

  • KaiserVonScheiss

    Good to know the never Trumpers have something to enjoy. You know, after Hillary lost an election that everyone at the Fake News Media/Fake Polls said would win.

    • jheryn

      Good to know that when pro Trumpers cannot defend the actions of the man-child they elected they resort to bringing up Hillary and Fake News. Pathetic.

    • Juanjo

      Classic Kaiser Von Scheiße Esser post. He has nothing so just post some gibberish unrelated to the failure of Trump doing anything but being a douche bag.

    • dwes09

      Ah! Nothing of substance to add, I see. We are over the past election, despite the actuality of the recorded popular vote. If you want to enumerate actual accomplishments go right ahead. Otherwise we are simply laughing at you. Again.

    • captainburrito

      Actually they were right as she did win the popular vote. Some more sophisticated polls had accurately predicted her loss of the electoral college ie. the company that does polls for the Democrat party. She just chose to ignore them. Even Bill realized what was happening but again she refused to listen.

      However, that bears little relevance to the article and seems like a childish attempt to discredit it. Kind of like how Trump deals with things that are not flattering. Some of the things contained are facts.

    • GayEGO

      Hillary won the popular vote and would have won the electorate vote if Trump and his Russian comrades hadn’t rigged the election.

    • GayEGO

      Gee, we have moved on, it is time for you to move on.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    Ah, a true populist. He’s just like most of his voters, except for the heroin.

    (Trump seems more like a cokehead.)

  • crowebobby

    Hey, Brody! Back in 2012 Trump lambasted Obama for his use of executive actions to push forward his policies.

    • Juanjo

      Brody will tell you the differences between Trump and Obama are obvious. Obama was a n&**#r while Trump is a real American.

  • Kieran

    Don’t tell me President Trump has lost Newsweek? It’s over.

  • wmca_goodguys

    Newsweek is still in business?!

    • dwes09

      US circulation (print) 100,000/month. worldwide 200,000.

  • ivanw222

    90 executive orders, and how many had to be rescinded because they weren’t legal, or because the courts threw them out? President Obama was a constitutional law professor, he knew what was within his range. Trump is a real estate hack without a law degree, utterly clueless in the Oval Office.

    • David Myers

      Thank you for that succinct comparison.

  • Paco

    That cover is hilarious. Will the Trumpsters ever wake up to the fact that they have all been swindled by a con man and his family? I’m willing to bet that they would all start waving Russian flags if he told them to.

  • RIGay

    Soon to be framed and hanging in most every Trump resort…

  • batesmotel

    So what who cares, get a life, and find some other interests outside Trump.

    • David Myers

      Some of us care, we have a life outside Queerty, and we have additional interest besides Trump . . . yet he and his followers continue to do nothing but destroy, and solicit hate and fear . . . and victimize (among others) LGBTQ citizens. So who cares what you think, TROLL! Begone . . . you have no power here TROLL!

  • NateOcean


    Hah! I say they were too kind

  • Kangol

    Now, now, President Gump doesn’t like to work much, and when he does he’s always screwing up, but they could have put the Lying Orange Menace in the brig or behind prison bars on Newsweek’s cover, since it’s increasingly clear he’s committing various federal crimes, and it’s looking like he was a traitor and members of his team were paid agents, coordinators, etc. with Russia. I guess Bob Mueller and the various Congressional committees will find out soon.

  • GayEGO

    Bwahahahahahahahaha! Der Drumpf will have a hissy-fit about this one!

  • Kris

    I love it! I guess the gloves are off…

  • stadacona

    It’s not a “magazine cover” because Newsweak is not a magazine. Mewsweak went bankrupt years ago and today is simply a website shilling for the left.
