A letter to the editor from The New Yorker, February 13 &20, 2017
As a child psychologist, I find Barry Blitt’s cover depicting Donald Trump in a child’s toy limo terribly sad (“At the Wheel,” January 23rd). It suggests that the problem with Trump is that he is a child. This is an affront to children everywhere: children are not inherently narcissistic, ignorant, cruel, or vindictive. They tend to accept other human beings with an open mind and heart, without prejudice. Would that a five-year-old were our President.
