The new cover of TIME Magazine is generating a lot of conversation.

It depicts the White House fitted with traditional Russian onion domes. It is actually Moscow's St. Basil's Cathedral.

TIME posted an animated version on their Instagram page with the caption, "How Trump's loyalty test is straining Washington."

President Donald Trump himself has been featured on the cover several times, saying it is a great honor. He has not yet commented on this cover.

The cover is generating a lot of discussion, but is it an original idea?

MAD Magazine claims TIME stole the cover art from the December 12, 2016 issue of their magazine.
