New York Daily News puts out another shocking Donald Trump front page

Key Points
  • The front page of the New York Daily News depicts President Trump and former chief strategist Steve Bannon as birds engaged in a fight.
  • The headline says "Cuck Fight," a play on words using an insult popularized by the so-called alt-right.
  • The front page comes after Trump said Bannon had "lost his mind" following leaks of Bannon's comments in an upcoming tell-all book.

The New York Daily News tweeted its latest front page featuring an illustration of President Donald Trump and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon as birds engaged in a cockfight.

The headline, "Cuck Fight," was emblazoned across the front. "Cuck" is a pejorative term used by the so-called alt-right for a man who has no self-respect, or more broadly for politically liberal males.

August 2017: "I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service." January 2018: "When (Steve Bannon) was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind."

The cover also references Trump's retort to quotes from Bannon in Michael Wolff's upcoming tell-all book about the Trump administration — titled "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House."

In the book, Bannon is quoted as saying a meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer in 2016 was "treasonous," The Guardian reported.

In his reply, Trump said the Breitbart News executive chairman "lost his mind" when he "lost his job" at the White House.

The White House says Bannon's departure last August had been a mutual decision between chief of staff John Kelly and himself.
