Vanity Fair pointed out this interesting cover of Lexean magazine, which features President Barack Obama. According to VF:
"The president, envisioned as the head of the Celestial Kingdom, wearing what appears to be the ceremonial robes of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty. Qianlong reigned for 60 years, from 1736 to 1795, and (cheap irony alert!) was known for his poetic speech, his fiscal policy of economic growth through government spending, and his four-volume compilation of the history of China known as The Four Treasuries."
