Comey, the recently fired FBI director, is the victim. It’s all illustrated in the New Yorker’s latest May cover.
Even the artist, Barry Blitt, says the double zinger is “probably a bit of a leap.” But that didn’t stop him.
“James Comey is 6’8”, he probably would have been happy to give up his seat in a cramped cabin,” Blitt told the New Yorker.
The magazine art comes after the firing of Comey by the Trump administration on Tuesday, and amid a jaw-dropping political circus this week.
