Magazines are taking on Trump, and they are not holding back.

Two weeks into his presidency, Trump and his administration have perhaps irreparably damaged America’s relationships with Iran, Australia, and Mexico, among other nations; signed a multitude of far-reaching executive orders, including a total ban on Syrian refugees and a temporary ban on seven Muslim countries; repeatedly lied to reporters and declared a free press the enemy; proven remarkably adept at erasing the checks and balances of power that maintain democracy; emboldened white supremacists, and more.

Steve Bannon once referred to liberal-minded women as “a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England.”

Take a look at that face, consider with absolute awe all of the fat ugly men like Bannon and Trump who think they are god’s fucking gift, and wonder what distorted funhouse mirror they must be staring into.
