The New Yorker just gave Donald Trump a taste of his own medicine.

The magazine’s latest cover features an illustration, by artist Barry Blitt, of the Republican presidential nominee as a beauty contestant boasting the title of “Miss Congeniality.” The cover is a response to one of the more viral moments from Monday’s night presidential debate, when Hillary Clinton criticized Trump for his treatment of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

During her reign as Miss Universe, Machado said Trump called her “Miss Piggy” as her weight fluctuated. Machado said that she’s struggled with anorexia and bulimia, and that Trump’s comments only further dampened her self-esteem.

“Watching the debate, the artist Barry Blitt recognized a significant moment in the Presidential campaign. Of all Trump’s dangerous beliefs, Blitt said, his misogyny ‘might just be his Achilles’ heel,'” The New Yorker‘s art editor Françoise Mouly wrote of the cover.
