Celebrities parody Trump's claim he was offered Time's Person of the Year

TWITTER

TWITTER

Trump's original tweet, which the magazine denied, claimed Time told him he was "probably" going to be named the magazine's Person of the Year for 2017. In 2015, Mr. Trump tweeted that he was a "big favorite" for Time's Person of the Year, but the magazine "would never pick me". "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!", Mr. Trump wrote.

The best Trump tweets spawn joking imitations and the US President's tweet about Time magazine's Person of the Year did just that.

Time was not impressed and tweeted on its own account: "The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year".

Conservative commentator and frequent Trump critic Bill Kristol also alluded to the investigation, tweeting that he didn't know who 2017's Time Person of the Year would be, but he hoped Mueller would get the honour in 2018.

But what's more interesting is the fact that the president's obsession with Time's annual award seems to be something of a tradition.

At the time, explaining their decision, the judges wrote: "It's hard to measure the scale of his disruption".

Shortly after his election last year, Mr Trump complained to a crowd of supporters that the magazine should return to calling it's award "Man of the Year".

President Trump shouldn't fret; he'll be on many more Time covers. Nope. Trump's problem is that the magazine wouldn't assure him the spot. "But I'm sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage".

The Washington Post reported in June that at least four Trump Organization golf properties had on display a fake Time Magazine with Trump on the cover and featuring flattering headlines about his reality TV show, "The Apprentice".

"Thank you to Time Magazine and Financial Times for naming me "Person of the Year" - a great honour!" he tweeted.
