Donald Trump Paints Himself Into A Corner On Time Magazine’s Latest Cover

SAY WHAT?

  

INTEL REPORT-The latest issue of Time magazine depicts President Donald Trump painting himself into a corner — an artistic response to Trump asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to do him a favor. 

Artist Edel Rodriguez created the illustration on the cover of the Oct. 7 issue, a Time spokesperson told HuffPost. The cover story concerns Trump having asked Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and allegedly threatening to withhold military aid if Zelensky did not comply.

The allegations against Trump were first detailed in a whistleblower complaint. The White House on Wednesday released a summary of a July 25 phone call between the two world leaders in which Trump asked Zelensky to “do us a favor.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has announced an impeachment inquiry into Trump. 

Rodriguez’s award-winning illustrations featuring Trump have graced several magazine covers, including Der Spiegel and earlier issues of Time. (Read the rest.)
