Good Lord. This week, US president Donald Trump gave his stamp of approval to right-wing conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root for comparing him with the “second coming of God” and the “king of Israel.”
The president later told reporters at a press conference on Wednesday that he was indeed the “Chosen One.”
Trump’s comment gave rise to New York Daily News’ Thursday cover, which replaces Jesus in a rendition of Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper with the president.
The illustration, titled The Last Whopper, pictures the president’s other “disciples:” first lady Melania Trump, daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Vice President Mike Pence, Housing and Urban Development secretary Ben Carson and Education secretary Betsy DeVos.
“‘Chosen One’ Trump eats up ‘King of Israel’ label from right-wing conspiracy nut,” the tabloid comments. Read its cover story here.
