New Yorker reveals cover it would have run if Clinton won

The New Yorker is offering readers a look at what its cover would have looked like after Election Day had Hillary Clinton won the race.

The cover depicts Clinton looking out the window of a dark Oval Office toward a full moon. Instead of running in honor of Clinton’s hypothetical electoral victory, the magazine is publishing the cover to promote an interview with the former secretary of State.

Clinton was widely expected by pollsters and pundits to win the 2016 election. But she ultimately fell to then-candidate Donald Trump, who won by more than 70 electoral votes.


Clinton emerged victorious in the popular vote.

In the wake of Trump’s stunning electoral victory, The New Yorker depicted on its cover a rising brick wall — a jab at the real estate mogul’s high-profile campaign promise to build a massive wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
