The president is seen reclining in an easy chair eating junk food and watching TV on the front page of the latest issue.

Newsweek has released the cover for its latest issue, with President Donald Trump adorning the page in a recliner chair flipping through television channels.

Featuring the headline "Lazy Boy," Trump is seen luxuriating in the chair, face despondent and bored, as a bag of Cheetos sits on his lap (a few wayward puffs littered around his midsection) on one side and a Diet Coke and McDonald's bag on the other. 

"Donald Trump is bored and tired. Imagine how bad he'd feel if he did any work," the rest of the text reads.

The cover story itself was posted online Tuesday by the magazine, in which Trump is referred to as "the boy king" and serves as a critical assessment of the president's recent performance. 

The New York Post similarly mocked Trump on a recent cover by comparing his cabinet, and the many shakeups therein, to the reality TV series Survivor
