The German magazine Der Spiegel mocked President Trump on its latest cover this week, depicting the president as a devolved man.

The magazine shared the latest cover in a tweet on Saturday. Beneath the illustration is the subtitle “In the age of Fire and Fury,” a reference to journalist Michael Wolff’s book on the Trump administration, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

n the image, Trump is depicted last in a line of devolving humans, a spoof of the scientific illustration “March of Progress.”

Der Spiegel’s cover comes just two days after Trump caused international outrage when it was reported that he referred to Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with lawmakers.

The liberal German magazine has attacked Trump before, including in August of last year when it depicted Trump wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood in response to the president’s comments on white nationalist violence in Charlottesville, Va.

Deputy foreign desk editor Mathieu von Rohr posted an image of August’s cover on Twitter at the time, which was titled “the true face of Donald Trump” in German. The same editor dubbed Trump’s White House a “Confederate presidency” in an earlier tweet.
