Rosenberg later said she thought the comment was intended as humor, according to USA Today. “The day before he asked me to make him look handsome and when the photographers were escorted in to take pictures he commented that he should have worn makeup that day,” Rosenberg wrote in an email to the newspaper. Rosenberg has been a courtroom sketch artist for more than 40 years, according to ABC. In April, she described drawing the former president when Donald Trump was arraigned on charges of falsifying business records. “My hands are just flying. My fingers were going faster than my brain, and then it was over,” she said. “I tried to show what expression I saw; that’s what I tried to capture,” she said.

She said the former president has “a great head to draw, his hair is a little like a hat, he’s got a lot of expression in that face — he’s fun to draw.”
