New Time magazine cover offers chaotic image of damage Donald Trump left behind
Now that former President Donald Trump is gone and President Joe Biden has taken office, the real work begins. However, in the midst of moving forward, the Biden administration has quite a bit to clean up. The cover of Time magazine's latest issue offers a depiction of the chaos Trump leaves behind and now that cover image is going viral.
On Thursday, Jan. 22, Tim O'Brien tweeted a photo of the cover, titled "Day One," as he explained the piece saying, "For the past several days, after pondering where we are as a nation, what just happened in Washington, and what Joe Biden faces as he takes the office of President, I was working on a piece that is now on the cover of the new issue of Time Magazine."

O'Brien's latest illustration comes just months after his previous visual depiction of Trump's one-term presidential travesty. Back in August, he released an image of Trump drowning in a COVID river while fighting to get back to the White House, seen in the distance.

At the beginning of 2020 amid Trump's first impeachment trial, Time magazine featured a storm simulation designed by O'Brien that showed the former president sitting in the Oval Office at the resolute desk amid a thunderstorm. Despite the obvious storm, the caption befittingly read, "Nothing to see here."
The latest cover comes as Trump prepares for his second impeachment trial. On Wednesday, Jan. 13, the House voted to impeach the disgraced former president again for allegedly inciting an insurrection on Jan. 6.
The deadly riots occurred after Trump held a "Save America" rally and encouraged an angry mob of his supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol as lawmakers were working to certify the Electoral College vote to affirm President Joe Biden's election win. The incident left five people dead, including Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick.
