In the space of a week, the Trump administration has been rocked by controversy and accusations of Russian collusion. Late last week, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey over his handling of the Clinton email investigation, leaving many worried that his investigation into possible Russian influence in the 2016 election would go with him.Â
But since then, it was reported by various outlets that President Trump shared classified information with Russian officials and that Trump had asked Comey to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn.Â This prompted the Justice Department to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the Russia investigation. As you can imagine, Trump wasn’t happy.Â
So with Russia being the focus of most Americans, it should come as no surprise that TIME‘s new cover has some Russian influences…Â
Social media had some pretty mixed reactions to the burn, with many applauding it.Â
Others were more critical.Â
What do you think of the cover?
