Trump Claims He Turned Down Being Time Mag’s 2017 Person Of The Year Because They Wanted An Interview

The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump claimed Friday evening he turned down an offer from Time magazine to be the outlet’s Person of the Year because he didn’t want to do an interview. Trump was named the Person of the Year in 2016, and finished second to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015 — a finish that bothered him throughout the following year.

    He fits in with the likes of hitler, stalin, khrushchev, nixon, khomeini, starr, putin, etc.

  • Natty Enquirer

    Well no, that’s not how I read it. Trump turned down the interview because Time wouldn’t guarantee him the title.

  • teeveedub

    I’d vote for Robert Mueller for Person of the Year.

    And I’d increase his budget, too.

    • safari

      I’d nominate Mueller for a pre-emptive Nobel Peace Prize.

      • Jeffrey

        I love Obama, but Mueller has already done more to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize than Obama. Especially if he puts Jr, Jared or Ivanka in the pokey.

          • ChrisMorley
          • agcons

            Yup, me too, about two seconds after it went in (which was satisfying).

          • Dazzer

            Thank you Chris. You never really get told this, but every time you do that, part of my soul soars because there’s a human being willing to take the time and effort to do something I can’t.

          • ChrisMorley

            Thank you Dazzer – Sadly it doesn’t seem to make much difference because Disqus doesn’t really bother to stop scammers. But perhaps I have now forced them to adopt multiple IDs here each day.
            It’s part of my morning routine – coffee and Flag and Block them wherever they’ve popped up. As a borderline obsession, it is fairly harmless.

          • Dazzer

            The thing, though, is that it does make a difference. Not so much to Disqus, obviously, but it makes a lovely difference to my life.

            I’m an effete southern puff who clearly wakes up later than you. When I wake up and come to this site and find you’ve done the necessary with the spammers, it’s like me taking my dog for an early walk in the park and finding someone has bagged all the dogshit and put it in the bin.

            The weird thing is that you dealing with the spammers reminds me that I need to clean up my own real-life home.

            You probably won’t understand this (and there’s no reason you should) but your insistence on keeping this place clean reminded me to hoover the floor in the living room and go put a load of stuff in the washing machine.

            Obviously I’d have done both things anyway, but I probably wouldn’t have done them today.

            You look at it as a borderline obsession – and long may you do so – but you actually make my life better because you do it.

            The Internet, eh? Fuckin’ weird! Innit.

          • ChrisMorley

            You are a lovely sweet man, Dazzer.

    • MonochromeMouse

      That would drive trump absolutely fucking insane.

      • David Walker

        I’ll accept anything at this point. I would love to see a yuuuuuuuuge meltdown, the biggest, the best, the meltdown people will be talking about…all his superlatives in one bit of public, undeniable, total inexplicable in any other way meltdown. They’ll still love him, but it might make Amendment 25 look more likely.

        • MonochromeMouse

          Or maybe we’ll get lucky and it’ll end like Kim Jong-Il’s last temper tantrum.

    • gaycuckhubby

      Other than worry Trump, Mueller hasn’t done much YET.

        I can’t quite explain it, BR, but I’m totally enamored with contemporary British humor. Somewhere in my DNA there must be ancestral fucking with British Empire shit. I mean, this is a real thing for me.

      And now for something completely different …

    • M Jackson

        Lol. 😉

        This is a discreet subset of gay male humor. Not all gay men feel/experience it, and that’s perfectly okay.

          It still appeals to my inner 8th grader! I too am an Anglophile.

    He does know that’s not necessarily a good thing, right? “Person of the Year” isn’t “OMG SO INCREDIBLE SECOND COMING OF JESUS of the Year.”

    • Tomcat

      He did not even realize last years person of the year was NOT a honor cover, it was a trump bashing.

      • Lizard

        He’s too fucking stupid to know shit from Shinola.

        More like alexandra feodorovna, czar nicolas’ wife

      • Dazzer

        No.

        Whatever one might think about her, Queen Victoria was both wise and successful as the monarch of her country. She not only survived the politics of her time (which were turbulent for a woman – even one in power), she also outlived her enemies and was able to write her own history.

        By any measure, Victoria was a success. Trump is not.

    • Tomcat

      View last years cover and it reads President of The Divided States of America. So he already joined the club with those other villains.

    • Gianni

      The good part of this is that Donnie automatically thinks this would be a compliment to him because of his many fine leadership qualities and the tremendous job he’s been doing. I don’t feel he realizes that being the most incompetent, erratic, unbalanced world leader also qualifies him for selection. It’s the interview that killed it for him.

    • Reality.Bites

    • Jonathan Smith

      why insult Hitler?

    • BobSF_94117

      Trump is Putin’s stooge. He’s no Man of any year.

  • Gianni

    If he really did say no to the mag, it had to be because of the required interview. That would definitely go into areas where he does not want to go – so many well-known men accused of sexual improprieties and almost all of the accusers being LIARS! Donnie, himself, has THIRTEEN of those liars. Yes, that interview would be most uncomfortable for him.

    • JAKvirginia

      He’s POTUS. He could control what he would/wouldn’t talk about. The whole routine is bullshit.

    Disney has still not open the Hall of Presidents with Trump, either. I wonder if it is because he can’t agree to an acceptable script and stick to it. Plus he would need to make time for a life mask to mold the face. I wonder if he has even done that?

    • Jonathan Smith

    • Tomcat

    • djcoastermark

      The opening has been delayed many times for many months. Disney is not stupid, yet face an conundrum. Open it and face all kinds of problems. They may just decide to “retire” the show for now. It would probably be best for them.

    The more I think about it, the more I think Time’s person of the year is going to be Xi Jinping. He is now essentially as powerful as Mao ever was, with the difference that China now is, by some measures, the largest economy in the world, which it was only in 10th place during Mao’s time. That speech he gave this year when the party invested him with all those powers was a doozy that much of the western media didn’t pay sufficient attention to. It was basically China coming out and saying, “The United States is on its way out; We’re taking over now.”

    • Lazycrockett

      Staying in the TPP was our only hope.

      • AlternativeQuacks

        That, and not just that. A prominent French political scientist did a Q&A with Le Monde to deconstruct what happened on Trump’s Asia trip. He said that Trump was an “undreamt-of gift” for China and essentially gave them everything they ever wanted and stuff they weren’t even realistically hoping for.

        Trump has in a few months completely undone Obama’s Asia pivot, because, of course, Obama did it so he has to do the opposite.

        It reminds me of the inauguration crowd-size lie. Why does he think he can get away with such easily checkable falsehoods? … not that it is not obvious in so many ways, but there is something seriously wrong with that man.

          • Opinion Sousaphones

            To me, the words “lie” and “falsehood” are equal in meaning, although “lie” has the stronger impact. However, I had already used the word “lie” earlier in the comment, and, out of habit, I try not to repeat a word exactly but use a synonym when I need the meaning a second time. It is just habit, the purpose of which is to avoid boring the reader. I probably should have edited the comment to reduce repetition by another mechanism, but time lacked as I had various chores to attend to. Please be comforted in knowing that I am not trying to hide or minimize what Trump is doing.

          • TuuxKabin

            You comforting words are well taken, and I agree with your manner of not repeating a word. Thanks. It did not enter my mind you were trying to hide or minimize anything, was a shot from the hip. All the best.

        • Veylon

          Is it? I keep going back and forth between him being a vain, petty man clinging pointlessly to falsehoods that might prop up his ego and him being a diabolic genius who has an inside track on exactly which buttons to push to keep his base at an ideal riled-up level.

          • Snarkaholic

            Diabolical, yes…genius, no. The ability comes easily to him, due to decades of practice, which probably started with him being a schoolyard bully.

        • marshlc

          But he DOES get away with it. He’s still president.

          All that happens when he’s caught in a stupid and obvious lie is that people who would never support or respect him anyway say “OMG, he’s lying again!” and two days later it’s forgotten. Do you think the people who are impressed by tonight’s stupid tweet will ever see that Time denies it? Nope, and if they did, they wouldn’t believe it. They’d just call it fake news. Which, by the way, is the smartest political move I’ve seen in a lifetime of watching politics – taking the reality that there was Russian-led fake news that helped hand the presidency to Trump, and turning it around as a way to attack the legitimate news media. There is now a sizable percentage of the population who would never consider believing anything told to them by people who actually understand what they are talking about, but who will swallow whole any ridiculous crap pulled out of some charlatan’s ass.

          Dose anyone here follow Oh No Ross and Carrie? It’s a podcast where they investigate fringe science, claims of the paranormal, weird religions, etc by actually taking part. They’re a lovely mixture of warmth and respect for the actual human beings involved in all this nonsense, and amusing but stringent skepticism for the nonsense itself. They’re doing the Flat Earth Movement just now, and it’s a frightening look at where the (so-called) minds of a whole lot of people are. Complete distrust of anything told to them by the “authorities”, and an amazing gullibility for everything else.

          • Mike Solo

            Thank you for giving me a new podcast to listen to on my commute! Especially as I’m temp moving from Gaydon (Love that name) to Whitley, and the traffic in the West Midlands makes me want to ram other cars.

          • marshlc

            I hope you like it, it’s one of my favourites. Best to go back and start at the beginning of one of their multi part investigations, though they used to do a fair number of one-offs, too. Ross’s adventures with fire-walking are a classic.

          • Opinion Sousaphones

            I have not heard of this podcast before now. I see that they have an rss feed here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/OhNoPodcast and a general info page here: http://ohnopodcast.com/ I will check them out today. To me, much of what you point out seems to be a consequence of the growth of nihilism as the philosophy of those who would rule us (Bannon, Trump, Putin, et al). Through chaos and the weakening of social norms, it gives them power, for a while, but, ultimately, it destroys everything and reduces us to barbarism. It really frightens me. It destroys all the good that humans have done as well as our potential to do more. It leaves untouched our propensity for every pointless cruelty.

          • marshlc

            It frightens me, too, very much.

            I think it was made possible by the internet. All the conspiratorial minded nutjobs who have always been around, mimeographing their lunacy and maintaining mailing lists in the back of a notebook and bothering their neighbours – now they’re all able to get together and feel the positive reinforcement of that. Bannon, Jones et al have been quick to exploit them and whip them into a frenzy.

            Patterns of socially responsible behaviour that in some ways have taken centuries to build up are being destroyed, and I don’t know how or if they will come back.

        What I find so deliciously wonderful about this is that he’s scared shitless of a non-Fox interview, non-xn TV interview with actual, respected journalists. He thinks he’s the leader of the free world, wants desperately to be thought of as fearless leader, and he’s scared that they’ll actually ask real questions about the shit that’s going down. That they’ve already said he lied, what’s a fearless leader to do when the magazine you most want to be cover boy for says “fuck off”? I getting my Friday evening grin back.

        • Steve Teeter

          It is delicious. He’s lying so he can claim he snubbed TIME magazine. You see this in dog parks. If dog A snubs dog B, then dog A has higher status. This is what Trump has sunk to.

    Lest anyone forget or misunderstand, Person of the Year does not mean Best Person. It simply means the person who has exerted the most influence.

    Nikita Krushchev in 1957.
    Richard Nixon in 1971 and 1972.
    The Atatollah Khomeini was in 1979.

      • AlternativeQuacks

        Whatever has been going down in Saudi Arabia is bizarre, possibly a coup or a family feud, and it may affect the price of oil, but I just don’t see that justifying making Salman person of the year, except maybe in the oil industry.

          A consolidation and a family feud.

    If Trump controls the process (from his jail cell, presumably) the library will be all about how great he was. It will literally be the 100% inverse of reality.

      It’s early days yet. But one, it’ll be Pence, not Trump. And two, I doubt it’ll be Bernie. He’s berned a lot of bridges and left a lot of bern victims behind him. Even parts of his lower-than-Clinton’s support base from 2016 have abandoned him as useless.

    • houstonray

      And what age would he be? 80? Seriously? Ain’t EVER going to happen.

      • SoCalGal20

        Yeah, he’s too damn old. And as much as I like Joe Biden he’s also too old. He’ll be 77.

    • AlternativeQuacks

      Won’t happen. Bernie support is “digitally enhanced” and relies on a small group of very motivated and tech-savvy berners and, especially, on caucuses. When people get in the voting booths for primaries, it all falls apart.

      • Treant

        And Maine just moved from a caucus to a primary due to the manipulations of Bernites during their last caucus. Most of the big delegate states are primary-driven.

    OT: Well, it’s done, cooked, and cut. I think I let the temperature get a little high–it smells a tad like overheated lard. That usually goes away during the first week of curing, but we’ll see. If not, I may use it here or discard it as not usable. I have one older unscented recipe and one newer one to give my cousin if this didn’t work.

      Blue,my favorite color.

      • Treant

        Ultramarine blue is an absolutely stunning color, and one of my favorites. Fortunately, it’s synthetic; I couldn’t afford real lapis to grind up and toss in soap. 🙂

          I wanted my last car to be that color, but the VW dealership was only selling them in charcoal gray, slate gray, silver gray, ash gray, gunmetal gray, medium gray, 5o-shades-of gray, black and white.

          • Treant

            I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ultramarine car…I would think it might fade in sunlight? One advantage to gray is that if it fades…who can tell?

          WAAAAAANT!
          A few years ago, I was walking down the street and came across a Jaguar (I forget what model), in that exact shade of blue, parked at the curb. I stood there and stared at it, enraptured, for I don’t know how long.

    • houstonray

      That is some pretty soap!!!!

      • Treant

        Too bad it smells like burnt pork at the moment…

        • OdieDenCO

          bacon?

          • Treant

            More like pork that got left on the baking pot and burned a bit in the oven. It doesn’t smell carbonized or anything like that, there’s just this overdone piggy scent to it at the moment.

            Tallow never has this problem, which is why I’m shifting over to use tallow instead. Or, if it does, it just smells a little like a well-done hamburger before fading to nothing. I can actually work with a meatier scent.

          • edrex

            i know that smell. i mades some brussels sprouts with too much (overcooked) bacon that smelled – and tasted- like that a couple of weeks ago.

          • Treant

            Then you know how…not foul, really, but distasteful it is. We’ll see if it fades, it usually does, but this time it’s rather strong and there’s no masking scent.

    • another_steve

        You shoulda seen the feather top swirl. Oh, wait, through the Magic of Photography, you can! Seriously, this is one of the simplest feathering techniques and takes a matter of seconds.

        The concave top is due to overheating; the outward edges expanded while the center didn’t. This is a minor instance of that effect, which can get very extreme.

        If I do, it’s because the overheated pig fat scent doesn’t go away. Seriously, you don’t want that. In the shower, in hot water, it intensifies. If you use it as your bathroom hand soap, it clings to your hands.

      • Malachite dissolves somewhat slowly in water– but vaginal secretions aren’t just any water. A healthy human vagina has a pH of 3.8-4.5 and a salinity of about 0.9%. It’s also warmer than your average underground cave at 37°C (or 98.5°F in American meat units). As luck would have it, acidity, salinity, and warmth all make malachite dissolve faster.

      • In other words, the human vagina dissolves malachite.

    When Donald Trump is dead and gone, he will be remembered as the most extreme example of a dishonest narcissist in modern American history. So powerful was his narcissism he could overwhelm all opponents and make them yield by degusting any decency within the core of them. History must teach us all the lessons how to defeat such a being decisively and undefeatable safeguards put into our laws so never again do we allow a unworthy man like Donald Trump to walk into the halls of American power ever again.

      If we truly want to defeat the forces that propped him up, we have to remember and acknowledge the forces and people in America who were willing to give him the nuke codes. It’s never just one person, just like Hitler didn’t get control of Germany by himself.

      The fundajelicals have basically said that they’re willing to have their children raped by godmen in order to feel powerful even as everything else is taken away from them like clean air and wage increases. That’s got to be put down in stone.

      • Richard B

        I agree, but how we got stuck with Trump is more complicated. We should have been able to defeat him in the debates and couldn’t because of never seen before bullet proof rhetoric. Trump woke up a ugly disenfranchised white segment of the electorate in the suburban and rural parts of the country. This was a group that erroneously felt Barack Obama was favoring minorities over poor working class white people. In addition, when you factor in what the Russians did on social media to further enrage and motivated that block of voter to the ballot box, and when that block voted with the traditional republican base, it gave the republicans a competitive race. Keep in mind, Hillary got the popular vote. We also know now some weird unexplained mathematically improbable anomalies occurred in the paperless voter machines in the rust belt states that gave Trump the electoral college edge.

        I’ll be dealing with Mario trying to beat Bowser for the millionth time since my nephews and nieces are in town.
        We’ll beat up on one orange haired asshole, others can do the same for Trump.

    • Hannity must have a really tiny penis. I am being serious. There is something about his annoying personality.

    • agcons

      Good god that man is such a fucking idiot. I’ve known that for years, but for some reason I’m still surprised by his every idiotic statement. Maybe that’s because I keep hoping, deep down, he’ll forget how to breathe.

  • Lazycrockett

    Im only 25 minutes into Victoria & Abdul but would recommend it.

    • JCF

      I enjoyed it, but it paled in comparison to “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” which I (first!) saw 2 days before.

      • Lazycrockett

        Well that is rather apples and oranges.

        • JCF

          I don’t see enough movies to place them into separate categories!

    • DumbHairyApe

      Wait, you’re tweeting from inside the movie theater???? 🙁 Please tell me you’re in line for popcorn or to use the restroom!

    • I saw the movie, actually, in reality, Abdul Karim was given a large estate in India by Victoria and retired there in comfort. He was not sent back in poverty — as the movie seems to indicate.

  • JCF

    Bears tie game! 😀

    [Yeah, it’s sportsball. Sue me, I still love my Cal Bears. If they beat UCLA, they become bowl eligible.]

    • JCF

      …and then they quickly give back lead. }-p

  • DumbHairyApe

    Since the “so-called” President tweets so much about Hillary Clinton, I think it would be nice for Time to give her “Person of the Year”.

    • Man_in_the_mists

      That would cause an absolute meltdown from the Infinite Goatse. Which means it must happen.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      Best. Idea. Ever.
      The meltdown would be epic.

    • fuzzybits
    • DaddyRay

      It would even be more fitting if she got 3 million more votes from Time readers

    • Gianni

      She should get it just for passively causing the doofus so much heartache. Donnie hasn’t been able to concentrate on any duties of import simply because he always has Hillary’s popular vote win on his mind and has to turn every problem into a jab at her. She is so under his skin.

  • I just saw this. He is such an egomaniac asshole. I hope Time give it to little Kim Rocketman or even better, Mueller, just to annoy him. How about Colin Kaepernick?

    • Lazycrockett

      Xi seems to be the the top candidate and if it is him, its gonna be a poke in the eye for Dear Drumpf

    • boobert

      Or Comey. His firing got Mueller appointed.

  • gaycuckhubby
  • OT- For those of you who get Amazon Prime, and who have not seen the pilot of The Marvelous Mr. Maisel, you should — the series season 1 begins on November 29. It is set in the late 50’s – about a very West Side New York City lady who becomes a stand up comedian and starts in the Village with very adult humor — I loved the pilot which is up now. https://youtu.be/MjRvCl9R1nw

    • Lazycrockett

      bout time.

    • Michael R

      At what point does she transition into Mr. Maisel ?

  • planetwingnuttia
  • JCF

    Bears tie again! But damn, Bruins get ball w/ ~2 minutes left. Can we stop, to either get ball back, or go to overtime?

    • JCF

      As feared: loss. 🙁

  • Ninja0980

    O/T but just saw a clip of Darlene Love singing Christmas.
    One of my favorite singers of all time.

    • whollyfool

      I look forward to that every Christmas. : )

    Time denies.

      Drumpf lies.

    If the Establishment, including the corporate media, will not defend the Constitution and the Rule of LAW from a regime of unchecked, potentially murderous THIEVES, baldfaced, pathological LIARS, religious and racist FANATICS, PREDATORS of every conceivable description, OUTLAWS and TRAITORS, the PEOPLE must!!

    • I love violin concertos, thanks, and I never heard of this one!

      • billbear1961

        We just discovered it in Iceland, Eddi!

        The beauty and JOYFUL passion of the first movement consistently moves me to tears!

    • I discovered this modern one Billbear that i like. But I think its famous. https://youtu.be/NVcwiXHk5FI

      • billbear1961

        Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, Eddi!

        • Yes I did and I hope you did too! I cooked dinner for Mom and her boyfriend! Turkey, chestnut stuffing with cornbread, the whole works —

          • billbear1961

            🙂

      • Mikey

        hehehe, not quite a “modern” concerto.
        Barber, by the way, was “family”. He was in a (very) long term relationship with the composer Gian-Carlo Menotti.

        Samuel Barber has been my idol since my late teens. His musical mind is one of the most frighteningly brilliant of the 20th century, but sadly he mostly gets credit for being the composer of “that Adagio for strings that is in all those movies”.

        You want brilliant, listen to the middle movement (or the whole thing, it’s all brilliant) of his cello concerto.
        Or his Pulitzer-winning piano concerto of 1962.

        Or his fiendishly difficult piano sonata.

        He wasn’t by any means a prolific composer, but each and every one of his compositions is a masterpiece in its own right.

        • Great! I have to read about him then. I cannot find much music by Mr. J.G. Benda though– I am looking.

          • billbear1961

            I haven’t found anything else by him that compares to this GLORIOUS violin concerto!

  • billbear1961

    I hope you’re okay, That Looks Delicious–we haven’t seen you in a long time.

    🙁

    • AlternativeQuacks

      Thank you, Billbear. I am still here. I just changed my screenname and avatar. I got tired of the goat.

      And a big target that fat ass is.

    • Reality.Bites

      The ruble stops here. Even if technically innocent, Trump is responsible

      • billbear1961

        I doubt very much he’s “innocent,” even technically–I doubt his henchmen, especially Junior, acted without his approval.

        And he is certainly GUILTY of obstruction, of violating the Emoluments Clause, and, almost certainly, of money-laundering.

        • coram nobis

          BOTH emoluments clauses, the one on foreign presents and the one on domestic payments.

    • BobSF_94117

      What’s this “target” shit? Mueller is investigating. If he finds suspicious things, he follows them. His target is illegal activity.

  • safari
    • billbear1961

      Shapiro is an ugly and obvious LIAR–none of his arguments can stand up to close examination. He’s not a “conservative”; he’s an extremist. He does not, for example, believe in the equal protection of the laws for ALL citizens.

      The Times is becoming an apologist for fascism–they’re truly disgracing themselves, and should be dropped by decent citizens until they decide to defend the truth from lies and genuine democracy from irrational and hateful extremism.

      I don’t know how a democracy can survive without an honest press dedicated to truth-telling and defending democracy. But, of course, THIS democracy is in dreadful peril.

      MANY in the media, including the Times, are normalizing hateful and mendacious extremism in the same way they normalized Trump. The extremism threatening this democracy is NOT normal, and anyone who pretends the kind of corruption and undemocratic extremism we’re seeing in people like Trump and Roy Moore and in the secretive and undemocratic behaviour of the GOP Congress is BETRAYING THIS REPUBLIC.

      The NY Times can no longer be trusted. Sucking up to the filthiest strains of “thought” which have captured control of our government, sucking up to the darkest kind of mendacious POWER and GREED and HATRED, they are betraying this country in the same way Fox “News” and sites like Breitbart are. They are SHAMELESS and VILE, allies of FASCISM.

    • BobSF_94117

      philosopher = uses big words on occasion and quotes guys who died a long, long time ago, sometimes getting them right.

      • billbear1961

        The “cool kid’s philosopher”–bullshit! He’s a sophist who twists others’ words to his own corrupt use, as the Nazis twisted Nietzsche’s.

        So, the Times thinks young and hateful, lying fascist extremists–among them white supremacists–are “cool kids,” do they? The Times is DISGUSTING. This reminds me of some their “reporters” referring to the smile of Nazi Richard Spencer as “cheeky.”

        The Republic is losing the NY Times–this is yet another indication of the CRISIS we are facing.

  • Amanda B. Rekendwith

    It’s doubtful, Donald.
    No evidence exists that you’re either a man or a person.

  • Pete Wascher

    i don’t think time interviewed hitler for the 1938 cover.

      This is about the supposed Uranium One “witness”.

  • j.martindale

    And Time denies they suggested this. Surprise!!!!

  • Jay Silversmith

    Don the Con misread “SLIME” magazine.

  • Why lie about something that’s so easily verifiable?

    • Boreal

      Because he’s dump.

    • Treant

      Because 30% of America now thinks Time wanted to honor him with Man of the Year.

      • TuuxKabin

        OT: Was waiting for you. You mentioned Monarch butterflies a while back:

        • Treant

          I shoulda spoken up earlier. My husband’s snoring was about 160 decibels and I’ve been awake–and deaf–since 6 AM.

          But awesome, and thanks! While I’m far from a monoculture, I’m offroad and close to farmlands. I can backyard plant milkweed with some confidence that an occasional monarch will use it!

          • TuuxKabin

            Hope you can ‘backyard plant the milkweed for ’em. They’re pretty much distressed. Off to new thread.

        • yes b’y
          • TuuxKabin

            Thanks. We were just talking about how to find some for the deck, next season. Some times there’s oil leakage from the fuel delivery to boilers in buildings, along the side walk. Good to know.

          • yes b’y

            It’s the fiber, not the plant itself. “The white fibres that you can often see floating in the fall breeze are light and hollow and able to absorb four times more oil than polypropylene, the artificial product now used to clean up spills.”

          • TuuxKabin

            Yeah, went to the article to check the facts. Good ol’ nature provides best it can.

    • BobSF_94117

      How do you verify that something didn’t happen?

      He is just going to cause sputtering and denials for days on end.

      • AdamTh

        TIME denied it.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Time’s contact with dump would have generated emails, phone records, visitors’ logs. Maybe dump even “taped’ it, just like he taped Comet.

    • Stubenville

      A distraction from the fact that he’s under investigation or colluding with the Russians?

  • PickyPecker
  • Gigi

    When has Dump ever turned down an interview request? The sad thing about these stories is they they only embolden his base, which causes them to double down on their dislike for the so-called “fake media.” An attack against their president is an attack against them. P

  • What an unmitigated disaster this “man” continues to be.

  • AdamTh

    I might believe Webster selected “covfefe” as their New Word of the Year…..

  • TexasBoy

    No, Donald, that was Who’s Who in American Politics calling, they wanted to feature you, but you’d have to buy several copies of their expensive book.

  • juanjo54

    He also turned down the Nobel Peace Prize and canonization by the Pope because as we all know, Trump is so very, very, very humble. Just ask him, he’ll tell you.

  • Halou

    Oh, please. The vanity precedent would never turn down an opportunity to get notices by such a prestigious publication, even if he suspected they would be ‘biased’ he wouldn’t care, his face would be on the Time Magazine cover… he would be Man of the Year. The only way he would truly reject the offer if if Duterte, Erdogan Xi, or Putin were also in the running and Trump’s participation would lessen their chances.

  • infmom

    He wants us to know that he also turned down an Oscar, an Emmy, a CMA music award, a Grammy, the Nobel Prize for Economics and a bunch of lewd propositions.

  • FelineMama

    WHAAAAAAA! What are you ascared of little donnie. What would they ask you that would make you turn down this opportunity. You lyin’ sack of crap.
