New Yorker Cartoon Perfectly Illustrates The Hiring Cycle In Trump’s White House



The New Yorker is one of our most respected publications, and for good reason — they occasionally foretell the future. 

Case in point: On Wednesday, they published this brutally satirical cartoon:

Then, in accordance with the prophesies, it came brutally true.

Within just a day or two, we learned that White House Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, widely seen as among Trump's trusted inner circle, was let go following a blow up between him and the new White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, seen below sizing Priebus up in the Oval Office.

Praise for the clairvoyant cartoon flooded the comments on Instagram. "Hit the nail on the head indeed," one person wrote. Another joked, "The Apprentice: White House Edition." Oh how real that is.

Start the clock. We anxiously await The New Yorker's inevitable next piece of illustrative clairvoyance. Because, really, there are only two options here: Either The New Yorker really can predict the future, or the current state of the administration is such a disaster that the inevitable lather, rinse, repeat that we've seen for nearly every single person who has come through the White House has somehow become boring, predictable and — dare we say — anticipated. If this current news cycle has taught us anything, it's that we shouldn't get too comfortable with literally anyone Trump puts into power because — before you know it — they are probably going to be replaced. And when that happens, we have a sneaking suspicion that The New Yorker will be ready to go with a punchy depiction of the government that has somehow become a reality, and will be for the next couple of months. Ugh, if you need us we'll be coddling our topical yet somewhat painful cartoons.
