The New Yorker magazine finally got in on the trend of mocking the size of Donald Trump’s hands with its March 28 cover.

The artist, Barry Blitt, said in a preview of the issue published Monday that he was inspired by palm reading.

Trump’s hand size has been a go-to target for mockery since Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter called Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian” in Spy magazine in the 80s.

Candidates like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and surrogates joked about the small size of Trump’s hands as a measurement of his penis.

Blitt said he is a not a Trump supporter.
