WASHINGTON: Time magazine on Wednesday named Donald Trump its “Person of the Year” for 2016 for his stunning upset election victory, but some people have amusingly making a mockery out of magazine cover featuring the US-President elect.
The unusual thing, as described by many, implies that the creator the cover was not Trump fan alike many other Americans.
A closer look at the cover and the giant letter “M” masterfully placed behind the President elect’s head, reveals what look like horns protruding from his unusually thin, cornstalk-colored hair.
TIME has somewhat responded to the cover by recirculating past covers that appeared to give subjects the aforementioned devil horns. Unfortunately, whether they like it or not, this particular cover perfectly predicts the next four years of hell on the horizon.
The real estate tycoon, who has never previously held elected office and shocked the political establishment by defeating his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, is featured on Time’s cover described as “Donald Trump: President of the Divided States of America.”
The magazine said its person of the year, a tradition that began in 1927, “had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year.”

“So which is it this year: better or worse?” editor-in-chief Nancy Gibbs wrote. “The challenge for Donald Trump is how profoundly the country disagrees about the answer.”
She said 2016 had been the year of his rise and 2017 would be the year of his rule, after he is sworn into office on January 20.

Kudos to the designer who made the “M” look like devil horns. We will send you care packages after Trump throws you in prison. pic.twitter.com/jsqKxC8IOq

At this point, the Person of the Year should just be Satan

My Ex: “Can’t believe @TIME picked Donald Trump as Person of the Year.”
Me: “They’ve picked evil trash before.”

The Esquire points out that Trump’s Person of the Year photo does look similar to this Time cover from April 14, 1941.
