If the persons in question were associated with the Singapore government or had lots of influence?

Well, you probably know the answer to that more than many/most Eagle.

Personally, I don't know who either of the caricatured men are, nor I expect, do most others...

True... 'tis and American thing. The "chick" is Texas Senator and right wing tea party hero, Ted Cruz. The "baby" is John Boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives.

I thought it was Robin Williams. Ah yes Boehner, I recognise him (now).

Time and Newsweek are strange beasts. I can't think of any equivalent in the UK (yet the French have Paris Match, and the Germans have Stern).

There was a short-lived equivalent in the UK, titled 'NOW!'. Which used to be remorsely parodied by the satirical magazine Private Eye, as 'Talbot'*. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NOW!_(1979–81_magazine)

* Probably some 60s private-school in-joke that I've yet to fathom. ... 'Talbot' is a Victorian reference to a hunting dog, specifically a Retriever Spaniel ... that I do know... anyway, I digress ... hehehe...
