The New Yorker isn’t taking Kanye West’s vow to run for president in 2020 lightly, so the magazine produced a cover lampooning the results of the election five years in the future.
“Trump Defeats Kanye” (pictured above) features a throwback to the classic 1948 Chicago Daily Tribune front page that wrongly reported “Dewey Defeats Truman.”
“Kanye’s 2020 Vision,” by Barry Blitt, fast-forwards the iconic cover to the Kayne age, comparing the husband of Kim Kardashian to former president Harry Truman.
“When one considers Mr. West, it doesn’t take a whole lot of imagination to be reminded of another scrappy kid who won the Presidency, back in 1948, against all odds. The press wrote him off, too,” Blitt wrote.
