Like Father, Like Son: Donald Trump Jr. Caught 'Red Handed' On Time Magazine Cover

There’s been thousands upon thousands of words written about Donald Trump Jr.’s new scandal with the Russians. Now, we have a powerful image to go along with it:

The newest cover of TIME magazine shows a black and white photo of Trump Jr. overlaid with his email chain to Russian contacts during the election. In bright yellow letters, a bit of word play: “Red Handed.”

If you’ve not been keeping up, it was revealed that Trump Jr. received an offer—through Russian contacts—for dirt on Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. didn’t just accept a meeting – he went so far as to respond via email, “If it’s what you say I love it.” He then sat down with a Russian lawyer, but exactly what happened in that meeting is unknown.

Not much legal action can be taken against Trump Jr. based solely on these emails, although investigations are already underway that could turn up more damning evidence.

What the emails actually do is confirm that the Russians were meddling in our Presidential election. Which everyone’s kind of assumed at this point, but this is definitive proof that people close to Trump (as close as his son) were teaming up with Putin & Co.

The accompanying article to the cover image opens with a flowery but pointed observation: “Like a farmer forecasting the weather by the ache in his knee, Washington has a feeling that this storm could be a monster. And the twinge that forecast the deluge was Donald Trump Jr. facing a camera and issuing what sounded a little like an apology. Which is an ominous sign in an Administration that means never having to say you’re sorry.”

Translation: this could be the scandal that finally gets the impeachment ball rolling. Fingers crossed.

I had a rough childhood. I watched my parents murdered right before my eyes. Shot point-blank by some two-bit thug.

So I ran away from Gotham and wandered the earth, until eventually Liam Neeson found me in an obscure Asian jail. He gave me a home, taught me to fight, and showed me the true meaning of justice meant wearing black rubber latex and speaking really deeply. 

Then I killed him with a flying commuter train.
