Time Magazine has become known for its iconic covers, particularly during the Trumpian era.

From Stormy Daniels to family separations, they’ve continually served up iconic imagery of the Trump presidency - much to the notoriously thin-skinned president's frustration.

The latest of these covers features Dr Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who has publicly accused Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual assault.

The cover features an illustration of the words and phrases from Ford's Senate testimony arranged into an iconic image of her taking an oath.

Last week, Ford detailed her sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh in a televised Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that drew millions of viewers. Her bravery captured the hearts and minds of a generation. Shortly after, Kavanaugh denied the allegations in a testimony that has been widely criticised, bringing his temperament into question.

Phrases that are featured on the illustration include: "I'm terrified", "agonized daily" and "seared into my memory”, "traumatic experience", "personal attacks and invasion of privacy" and "constant harassment and death threats".

San Francisco-based artist John Mavroudis, who illustrated the cover, told CNN:

It's a fascinating process to watch the face take shape, while hoping that you've captured the essence

But it's not all bad for Trump. In 2016, Time named the president as its "Person of the Year". He reacted by calling for it to be renamed "Man of the Year". Always classy.
