Reality check

Time’s newest cover is going to royally piss off Donald Trump

Last month it was reported that Donald Trump proudly displays a fake Time cover featuring his mug at one of his golf clubs.

Well after today, he may need to get a few more fake covers mocked up if he wants to maintain the delusion of favorable coverage. The magazine just released its latest cover, and it’s a doozy.

“Red Handed,” reads the bold headline across an image of the president’s namesake son, Donald Trump, Jr. “The Russian scandal hits home,” says the sub-head, as if there was any confusion about the subject matter of the article.

The story, of course, refers to the now-established fact that Trump, Jr. met with a Kremlin-linked lawyer under the pretense of securing damning intel on then-rival Hillary ClintonThe New York Times broke the story earlier this week.

“The most pressing question of our time might be: How bad is it?” writer David Von Drehle asks for the new issue.

Back in February, Time featured this charming cover image:

Yup, looks about right.

    Trump can add this ‘real’ Times cover to compensate for the ‘fake’ ones in his hotels.

    • Nahald

      And him unable to admire himself as he walks down the halls? Not a chance !

  • Kieran

    Let’s face it, the only people who are likely to read it are people trapped in a doctor or dentist office.

    • dwes09

      Time has the world’s largest circulation for a weekly news magazine. But if you need to lie to yourself to maintain your love for a crooked family whose “patriarch” got into office by a fluke, have at it.

    • skilos

      Kieran, that probably true, mainly because people don’t really want to read anything about the Turdrump, where for or against them.

  • Bob

    And this is the guy crying about ‘fake news’ ???

    • BigGaySteve

      Look at how the story has changed.
      “”Trump is a Russian agent” -> “Trump colluded with Russia” -> “Trump’s son met a Russian woman for 10 minutes once!” ->

      “Trump’s son met a jewish non ethnic Russian woman for 10 minutes once within 5 days of her visiting the Obama white house.!””

  • Spike

    Time for SNL to do a skit where they are the heads of all the major media outlets creating a competition to see who can come up with a FAKE NEWS story that will get trump tweeting.

    President Snowflake will no doubt claim that this is the media coming after the President children which they never did with Chelsea or the Obama daughters. So unfair!!! Sad.

  • MediaGuy

    The media is committing suicide, desperate to accuse anybody in the administration of anything and desperate to have it stick. It’s not going to stick because there’s no there there. Even if I were a liberal I’d be sick and tired of the desperate antics of the media. With every single new “story” the media loses credibility and audience. So, keep up the good work. You’re really helping out the Trump administration and conservatives. MAGA.

    • Mick406

      Well, Querty . . . can we say “ultra liberal”???!!! What he did is nothing different than what every other political campaign has done and why are you taking such glee in this?. “You’ve got something on the opponent that will help us win” Yeah, gimme it!” That is not a crime. But as MediaGuy said, this is more liberal BS and desperate antics. It’s a fake news story in that it DID happen, but there is nothing else to it, and therefore no ‘crime’ and no news story. Wait and see. It will be over soon and you and the media and the Dems have gained NOTHING!. You folks at Querty seem to be slobbering all over yourselves and it’s NOT from looking at steamy pictures. You’ve got an anti-Trump agenda as big as the Democrat Party!

    • Charlie in Charge

      When you say there is no there there… are you referring to the meeting Donald Trump Jr told us all never happened and now admits happened? There’s some there there, friend.

    • Hogwasher

      Oh MediaGuy, you really know how to hurt the media, guy.

    • Mkiel

      They are doing good work as the Dump’s approval rating is @ 40% & more people “Strongly Disapprove of Dump than strongly approve.

    • paul dorian lord fredine

      suitable for framing and hanging in one of the empty spaces left when he had the fake ones taken down from the walls of some of his golf courses.

    • Bellerophon69

      You might as well call yourself “Trump Troll”; you’re about as shrewd as well, any member of the Trump family! I’m sure the CIA and the NSA were somehow brainwashed and hypnotized, en masse mind you, by the “Liberal Media” into thinking there was a hacking of DNC and RNC computers, and that information was used to damage the Democrats in the Presidential Election. Hardly a frivolous notion, just to be dismissed because a bunch of goosestepping morons have faith in their Imperious Leader. I’m sure that those week willed fool campaign lawyers are just parrots of MSNBC stating that what Trump Jr did (in apparent ignorance and slimy greed) with the improper and illegal meeting now being discussed in the media, that HE stupidly printed a transcript of. That, or it could be that some immature and deluded partisan shill decided to try to taunt us and SOMEHOW make us feel shame and stupidity at believing the mounting evidence; I think I’m going with the latter instead of the former. Your statement,”Even if I were a liberal…” is as evident a confession of your bias as was Juniors confession of trying to collect incriminating or embarrassing evidence on Hillary Clinton. By the way, NO ONE can help the Trump Administration; the Trumps families ability to take aim and shoot themselves in the foot is innate and genetic, apparently!

    • mhoffman953

      @Bellerophon69

      What specifically was illegal about it?

    • GayEGO

      I am sick and tired of Trump, he is causing the debacle, the media is just reporting the news. Trump made a statement on a video during the time his son met with the Russian that he was going to report the Clinton involvement with Russia. Trumpsters can ignore the fact that Trump lies all of the time to just win, whatever. He is unfit to be our POTUS, he is against LGBTs and he needs to be impeached or resign like Nixon did which I doubt he will do as he is not man enough to admit that he lost.

    • mhoffman953

      @GayEGO

      That’s not the definition of treason. I don’t think you actually know the law and instead are just spitting out something you heard some loon say on TV. Treason is actively waging war against a nation by helping their enemies. Having someone email you and tell you they got some dirt on someone that they would like to talk about during lunch and to then not even deliver the goods isn’t treason. It’s bad optics at most but not criminal

    • Nahald

      So I presume you are Trump minion who wants him turning our nation into a Fascist Dictatorship. That’s the first step taken towards that is to discredit the media.

  • He BGB

    All dump’ s kids have tiny little ugly mouths except Ivanka for some reason must have seen a good dentist. And he married one of Leo’s cast off super model girlfriends. Wonder if she married him for love or could it have been Money?

  • skilos

    The cover of Trump with the wind blowing across the scene should have shown the wind blowing in one ear and out the other.

  • Charlie in Charge

    Great! Now Trump can replace all those fake Time Magazine covers he has at his resorts and golf courses with a real one.

    • Nahald

      Um. nope, because he thinks he looks so good on those covers.

  • KaiserVonScheiss

    Just more BS from the media. There’s no evidence of wrong doing or any ‘collusion’ that the media keep rambling about. It’s even been shown that it’s fake news. People on CNN have admitted as such on video.

    • tty1991

      …he literally tweeted the emails. They are ACTUAL REAL emails that he ACTUALLY REALLY tweeted out.

    • Bellerophon69

      You are either very ignorant, stupid, or being paid money to post on this site; I’m sure the appointment of a Special Prosecutor is being done because CNN telepathically willed it to be so. This so-called proof that it’s been “proven” that there was no wrong doing, is Mueller aware of it, and if so, why is he wasting his time with this investigation? “Fake news”? Yeah, if I were so stupid as to just accept your “Fake Post”.

    • Charlie in Charge

      Then. Why. Did. He. Lie.

    • GayEGO

      Oh boo! You do not do the research so you must be a Trumpster.

    • Nahald

      The meeting itself may not have been illegal, but Trump Jr. needs to be in jail for LYING on his Government Security Forms. One does not conveniently “forget” this type of thing happened UNLESS they are actually guilty of collusion. If it were anyone else they would be in jail at this point.

  • Snicky

    Well like the child he is he can take to his Twitter account

  • mhoffman953

    Red handed doing what?

    Nothing illegal took place with this meeting. This meeting (which turned out to be a arranged under false pretenses) didn’t violate any FEC laws

    • GayEGO

      The problem is that Dummy Jr. thought there would be news from a foreign, Russian lawyer that would damage Hillary and help his daddy and he said he would love it. He admitted to committing treason regardless of whether or not there would be information so that was the illegal part.

    • mhoffman953

      @GayEGO

      As stated above, that’s not the criminal definition of treason. Russian agents were hired by Democrats when Reagan was running for President in hopes of hurting his campaign and actual information was exchanged. Both instances are not treason

    • Nahald

      The meeting itself may not have been illegal, but Trump Jr. needs to be in jail for LYING on his Government Security Forms. One does not conveniently “forget” this type of thing happened UNLESS they are actually guilty of collusion. If it were anyone else they would be in jail at this point.

    • adam9x6

      Red Handed might mean Russia beig red/communist.

  • money718

    This is why Trump won. Every little lying politician know they have done the same thing. The media learned nothing from the election. They keep digging their own graves.

    • GayEGO

      Nope, Trump lies all of the time and he says that is what a smart businessman does – cheat on their taxes.

    • Nahald

      Trump has the innate ability to tell whatever audience he’s speaking to exactly what they want to hear, no matter what kind of lies or “alternative facts” need to be stated.

  • Charlie in Charge

    It has been made abundantly clear that Trump and his entire team are garbage. It’s also quite clear at this point that the people still defending his series of stunts are garbage and are a danger to the health of the country.

    • Nahald

      You seem to forget that Trump’s supporters said they wanted change. And at this point it appears the change they want is for Trump to turn our nation into a Fascist Dictatorship. We’ve a;ready become a Russian Satellite nation, so what the heck, they figure let’s go all the way (No pun intended).

  • GayEGO

    Bwahahahahahahahaha! Trump is sliding into the dump and is frowning more often than not.

    • BigGaySteve

      “”Trump is a Russian agent” -> “Trump colluded with Russia” -> “Trump’s son met a Russian woman for 10 minutes once!” ->

      “Trump’s son met a jewish non ethnic Russian woman for 10 minutes once within 5 days of her visiting the Obama white house.!””

  • Nahald

    I’d rather see a cover with them all behind bars !
