Here's a couple more alt weekly covers to address the election outcome:

"I just thought that since City Paper is in the unique position of giving Clinton the biggest margin of victory in the country and having to prepare for the president-elect that I would share our cover this week with all of you. We're proud of it."

That's City Paper editor Liz Garrigan, addressing alt weekly editors around the country on a private platform we share courtesy the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, to which the Indy belongs.

AAN puts together a weekly Cover Show, set to be updated with this week's content sometime today. And we can only assume Garrigan and crew's cover will make the cut this week. Here's the image she's referencing:

Another editor, Katherine Coplen, from NUVO Newsweekly in Indianapolis, shared her team's work:

The Colorado Springs Independent had to go to press Tuesday morning, ahead of election results, so we didn't have time to strategize a thoughtful visual response. Wishing we had come up with our own Trump cover? For what it's worth, I did snap a pic of this sticker posted on a utility box near Palmer Park a couple months back:
