Donald Trump Makes the Cover of the New Yorker in a First Time Ever Courtroom Sketch


Donald Trump has scored another first. He’s made the cover of next week’s issue of The New Yorker. It’s the first time the 98 year old magazine has used a courtroom sketch.

Jane Rosenberg was one of three sketch artists allowed in the courtroom this week. . “I have been doing this job for some forty-three years, but this was my most stressful assignment yet,” Rosenberg told the magazine.

This is what they call an ignominious honor for Trump. First ex president indicted, arrested, and arraigned, and bound over for trial. Now he’s the subject of the first ever courtroom sketch on the cover of the New Yorker. Very cool, Donnie. Let’s hope this leads to a drawing in a horizontal striped uniform.

Trump’s family must be so proud!
