The Post, Trump's hometown newspaper, has consistently used "Survivor" to mock Trump throughout his time as president. The newspaper first published a cover depicting Trump's White House as "Survivor" in July 2017 that featured the faces of his top advisers and officials. 

The paper mocked the Trump administration again in March after the White House announced that the president would replace Secretary of State Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonTillerson: Netanyahu 'played' Trump with misinformation Pompeo sees status grow with Bolton exit Trump blasts 'Mr. Tough Guy' Bolton: 'He made some very big mistakes' MORE. The Post covered Tillerson's face with a red “X," in addition to the faces of former chief strategist Stephen Bannon, former chief of staff Reince Priebus and former communications director Anthony Scaramucci

“Another one bites the dust,” the paper tweeted.
