Time doesn’t ask people if they want to appear on their cover any more than a flu virus asks permission to infect you. If Time chooses Trump, it will be an ironic selection, one honoring the tremendous failures that beset this democratic train-wreck. But Trump’s grandiose lie however, is but one of those frightening tidbits that offer a glimpse into a sociopath who has access to the nuclear codes.
For the record, the image above is fake; Trump has never appeared on the cover of Time. This hangs in many of Trump’s clubs. He had it commissioned by a graphic design team to offer praise to himself. At first people snickered, but now the stakes have turned laughter into real concern. To quote Rex Tillerson, “Trump is a fucking moron.” Put that on the cover, and I might buy one.
