A German magazine publishes a doctored image of the president of the United States doing a Nazi salute after his blaring support of neo-Nazi sentiment.   Slate put the head of state on the cover with a Nazi salute draped in an American flag for the 24 April issue of the monthly.   

Other magazines have similar images of the sitting president with white power misgivings.   The New Yorker’s cover show’s an orange faced mad blowing a sail that looks like a Klan hood.  While, the Economist has an orange headed man shouting through a megaphone white Klan hood eyeholes.  Trump's attacks don't seem to bother the fourth estate.

And then Ku Klux Klan come in, and the woman say, `We don't have no pork chops,' so I say, `Well, bring me a whole fried chicken.' And then the Klan walked up to me when they put that whole fried chicken in front of me, and they say, `Whatever you do to that chicken, boy, we're going to do to you.' So I opened up its legs and kissed it in the rump and tell you all, `Be my guest.' "  The previous story was an anecdote cited by the legendary Dick Gregory in 2003.  Dick Gregory died on Sunday.
