The New Yorker depicted Donald Trump as a beauty pageant contestant on the cover of its Oct. 10 issue.

The cover features Trump walking off the runway in a swimsuit with a mascara-streaked face, wearing a sash dubbing him “Miss Congeniality.”

According to the New Yorker, artist Barry Blitt was inspired by Hillary Clinton’s comments during the first presidential debate on Monday night. Trump’s misogyny “might just be his Achilles’ heel,” Blitt told the New Yorker.

During the debate, Clinton highlighted Trump’s previous comments about a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, who he once called an “eating machine.”
