Mad magazine is zeroing in on Donald Trump.

The magazine has been making jokes about politicians and popular culture for over 60 years, and its August issue will spotlight Trump, reported the Huffington Post

"Many people have wondered if Trump has any intelligent ideas in his head," Mad editor-in-chief John Ficarra told the Huffington Post. "Our cover answers that question once and for all," Ficarra said.

Ficarra said Mad plans to reveal a poster of the cover of its Trump issue, with the slogan "Make America Dumb Again."

Mad has made Trump a frequent target of its comedy. A recent entry on Mad's website jokingly pointed out similarities between the presumptive Republican nominee and Harambe, the gorilla shot by zookeepers when a child fell into its habitat. The magazine joked that both had heads "covered in lustrous simian fur."

Another Mad web post compared Trump to physicist Stephen Hawking, pointing out that while Hawking is considered a genius by the University of Cambridge, Trump is considered a genius by "himself."

In 2015, Mad reported that Trump made the magazine's year-end list of "20 Dumbest People, Events, and Things." The site's announcement said, "If you're sick of seeing Donald Trump everywhere you turn these days, then we've got some terrible news for you!"
