“The Age of Fire and Fury”; the latest Der SPIEGEL Trump cover

The latest cover story of Der SPIEGEL explains how “Fire and Fury” came to be and whether, and the extent to which, it approaches the truth. Most importantly, however, it delves into the consequences for an America and a world that have been confronted with a nuclear-armed fool who is likely to remain in office for some time to come, who is neither mentally nor psychologically suited for the job – apparently also not physically, either, given how late he starts the working day and how early he ends it. That, unfortunately, is precisely the point: Humanity as a whole is being set back just because of one single person. The achievements of decades – the fight against a climate disaster, against the nuclear threat, for equality between men and women, between blacks and whites and so on and so on. Where is the world supposed to start again if it manages to survive Donald Trump?

The cover image is a manifestation of all that exasperation. It was designed by New York artist Edel Rodriguez, who has done most of our past Trump cover images. It illustrates the regression of humanity through Trump. The title: “The Age of Fire and Fury.”
