Description

A large image of Donald Trump as the Grim Reaper. His arms are outstretched and he has a medical face mask danging from his fingertips, a reference to his October 5th public appearance. After being discharged from the hospital, where he was treated for Covid-19, he dramatically removed his face mask as a political statement. In large, red letters, text reads "Don't Be Afraid of Covid," also a reference to one of Trump's misguided statements upon release from the hospital.
