The New Yorker's new cover imagines Trump as an unsettlingly creepy circus clown

It's possible that when artist Carter Goodrich set out to design this week's cover of The New Yorker, he didn't mean to craft an image that would haunt your dreams. But alas, that's precisely what he did:

President Trump is a "dangerous clown," Goodrich told the magazine. "It's a national nightmare," he added. "He's already a cartoon villain, infantile and strange."

On the plus side, there are eight days till Halloween — plenty of time to get your "President Terrifying Forest Clown" costume in order.
