Next week's cover of The New Yorker features an illustration of President Donald Trump booting son-in-law Jared Kushner in the backside, while yanking son Donald Jr., out of Air Force One by the ear.

The magazine asked artist Barry Blitt about the illustration, who quoted a famous Russian author in his response: "Tolstoy said that 'happy families are all alike, but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.' Somehow this seems to apply to the Trumps, particularly lately."

The magazine's cover comes after Trump's son released emails detailing his conversations about setting up a meeting with Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016, The Hill reported.

He was told before the meeting that available harmful information about Hillary Clinton was part of a Russian government effort to help his father's campaign, according to the Hill.

Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting. Trump Jr. has called it a "waste of time."

The president has defended his son's decision to take the meeting, ABC News reported.

"As far as my son is concerned, my son is a wonderful young man," Trump said. "He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer — not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer. It was a short meeting. It was a meeting that went very, very quickly. Very fast."
