President Trump said Friday that he turned down being named Time's "Person of the Year" after the magazine only told him he "probably" would be selected.
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!
And Time promptly tweeted back:
The instant I read Trump's tweet I knew he was lying. His detachment from reality begs for the 25th Amendment.
Here's the real reason Trump is obsessed with Time covers:
Impressive! I haven't read the articles, but I assume all are positive. And Obama didn't need a fake cover, either. Yep, definitely would grate on the little Trumpie. lol
Here's another explanation for Trump's lunacy regarding Time. To get on all those Time covers, Obama had to be president for 8 years. Subconsciously, Trump knows he probably won't complete his first term. Therefore, he can't compete with Obama. Therefore, to explain Obama's getting on more covers than he will, he has to pretend he was offered the cover but turned it down.
Being Time's Man/Woman of the Year is not always an honor, Adolph Hitler and Stalin made it as well as other nefarious individuals who had a major impact on the year.
Time runs whoever is in the news for that issue, man of the year is only each year, it would have been possible for Obama to be on more than 40 covers if he was really in it to win it.
President Obama was more concerned with doing his job than what magazine covers he got on. Unlike the current occupant.
