Magazines have never held back as it came to portraying Donald Trump on their addresses, but a German information book has taken trolling.
The most recent cover for Stern, a German magazine, abandons any form of subtlety — showing a lifelike image of Trump performing a Nazi salute while draped in American flag.
After Trump’s controversial stance on Charlottesville and his delayed response to condemn the brutal behavior of neo-Nazis and white supremacists, other publications featured similar KKK themes — but they’ve mostly been cartoons.
Stern’s jarring image of Trump, on the other hand, is really realistic looking it could give you chills.
The text over Trump reads “Sein Kampf,” or “His Fight/Struggle” — a clear reference to Adolf Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf,” which translates to “My Struggle.”
The text beneath the headline translates to “Neo-Nazis, Ku-Klux-Klan, racism: The Way Donald Trump stirs hatred in the united states.”
Stern’s depiction heavily suggests that Trump is “stirring hatred” by standing up for Nazis himself, as revealed when he equated protesters with white supremacists, showing sympathy in a recent media conference.
In the days following Charlottesville, The Economist, The New Yorker, and TIME additionally took bold visual stands against the president together with covers comprising KKK hoods, also The New York Daily News emphasized Trump calling those at the Nazi rally “very fine Individuals.”
It is certainly not the first time and it probably won’t be the last. Before Trump’s immigration ban and connections with Russia have also come under fire, each picture constantly proving to be worth far more than a million words.
UPDATE: Aug. 24, 2017, 11:38 a.m. UTC Upgraded to change translation of second text so it reads: “Neo-Nazis, Ku-Klux-Klan, racism: As Donald Trump stirs hatred in the united states.”
