New York Daily News Front Page: Trump the Chosen One!

Dear Commons Community,

President Donald Trump thanked a right-wing conspiracy theorist for likening him to the “king of Israel” and the New York Daily News couldn’t resist panning him.

For today’s front page, the News gave Leonardo Da Vinci’s famed depiction of the biblical story of The Last Supper a Trumpian twist.

The front page ― headlined “The Last Whopper” ― features Vice President Mike Pence, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.  First lady Melania Trump and two of Trump’s closest White House advisers ― his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushne also appear.

The cover was published in  response to Trump tweeting his thanks to right-wing conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root, who claimed on Tuesday that Jewish people consider the president as the “second coming of God” and the “king of Israel.” Root’s comments, meanwhile, came after Trump said Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats are disloyal.

Is king of the fools next!
