(If Only) NewYorker reveals that this is the cover it would have published had Hillary Clinton won





Over the past ten months, many Americans, regardless of how they voted, have contemplated what life would have looked like if Hillary Clinton had been elected President on November 8, 2016. In at least one respect, we can now share a definitive answer. Above is the cover “The First,” by Malika Favre, that The New Yorker would have published had Clinton defeated Donald Trump to become the first female Commander-in-Chief.

In next week’s issue, David Remnick speaks with Clinton about her new memoir, the campaign, her stinging loss, and its aftermath; their conversation touched on the former F.B.I. director James Comey, accusations of Russian interference, and the role of sexism in Trump’s victory. “Clinton’s memoir radiates with fury at the forces and the figures ranged against her,” Remnick writes, “but it is also salted with self-searching, grief, bitterness, and fitful attempts to channel and contain that fury.” Clinton told him, “Literally, at times when I was writing it, I had to go lie down . . . I just couldn’t bear to relive it.”

Instead of Favre’s moonlit image of Clinton, the following week’s magazine cover was Bob Staake’s “The Wall.” As the magazine’s art editor, Françoise Mouly, wrote at the time, “When we first received the results of the election, we felt as though we had hit a brick wall, full force.” Perhaps no one shared that feeling as viscerally as the vanquished candidate. “In conversation and in the book,” Remnick writes, “Clinton’s pain is manifest.”

6. In the "Stages of Grief" many of us are still at 1.

Tread lightly - "Anger" is going to be a DUzy.

33. Had 90 minutes of #1 on election night and then went right to #5

As horrible as Trump is, I realized after 90 minutes of dazed disbelief that he is going to be the best thing that has ever happened to the Democratic Party

We have seen that already with 2017 congressional elections thus far.

17. At risk of sounding sappy...

Seeing this makes me feel all the feelings I felt on election night all over again. Bewilderment. Confusion. Sadness. Deep sadness. I had wanted to vote for HRC since I voted for Bill in 1992. It was the most exciting and most disappointing and saddest day all rolled into one.

This cover makes me feel all of it all over.

We didn't deserve you. We clearly didn't deserve the most qualified candidate ever.

21. My heart just got re-broken.

On the other hand, I'm glad they released it, because it shows a calm, capable person who's achieved a dream and is ready to live it, instead of the garbled chaos that is now taking place in the Oval Office.

38. I was angry at first about that cover, but after thinking about it I believe it was complete

satire about how the media was portraying the Obamas. I don't know what the artist said about it so that's my take on it.
