President Donald Trump scolds his son Donald Trump Jr. and son-in-law Jared Kushner as if they are naughty schoolboys on The New Yorker’s latest cover:

Illustrator Barry Blitt drew Trump booting Kushner in the butt and dragging Trump Jr. by his ear down the steps of an airplane for the front of its next issue, dated July 24.

The image is titled “Grounded.”

Trump Jr. and Kushner are both currently catching heat for taking a meeting with a Russian lawyer who had promised to dish dirt on Trump’s Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

Blitt cited Russian writer Leo Tolstoy when explaining the image to the magazine.

Tolstoy said that ’happy families are all alike, but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way,’” Blitt said. “Somehow this seems to apply to the Trumps, particularly lately.”
