Time’s newest cover is going to royally piss off Donald Trump

Last month it was reported that Donald Trump proudly displays a fake Time cover featuring his mug at one of his golf clubs.

Well after today, he may need to get a few more fake covers mocked up if he wants to maintain the delusion of favorable coverage. The magazine just released its latest cover, and it’s a doozy.

“Red Handed,” reads the bold headline across an image of the president’s namesake son, Donald Trump, Jr. “The Russian scandal hits home,” says the sub-head, as if there was any confusion about the subject matter of the article.

The story, of course, refers to the now-established fact that Trump, Jr. met with a Kremlin-linked lawyer under the pretense of securing damning intel on then-rival Hillary ClintonThe New York Times broke the story earlier this week.

“The most pressing question of our time might be: How bad is it?” writer David Von Drehle asks for the new issue.

Back in February, Time featured this charming cover image:

Yup, looks about right.
