17 of the best reactions to Trump's outraged tweet about Time's Person of the Year

“I said probably is no good and took a pass”

original Time Last year's cover Time

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S Twitter account is getting him in all sorts of bother again.

Now he’s in a dispute with Time Magazine over a claim he made last night that he “passed” on being its 2017 Person of the Year:

called t @realDonaldTrump @realDonaldTrump

Time responded on Twitter disputing his claim

Going by Trump’s original tweet, people think there’s a good chance he believes he’s not going to win so is getting his excuses in early. The sheer entitlement of the line “I said probably is no good and took a pass” has seen the argument light up overnight – and there have been some seriously funny reactions:

1. Like Andy Murray completely taking the piss with this parody tweet

2. In fact, Trump’s outraged wording has become its own little meme

3. It works in any situation

4. Mark Hamill is no longer interested because Trump has now “turned it down”

5. Trump seems a bit obsessed with the award

6. The former Editor of Time had some bad news for the President

Fake cover? It was reported in June that Time asked the Trump Organization to remove several fake covers featuring the president that were hanging in his golf clubs.

7. We’re learning new things about history every day

8. People have been making other suggestions for who should get the award

9. Imagine the scenes on the President’s Twitter

11. We finally have closure on the Blake Shelton thing though

12. Could it have been a person claiming to be from Time?

13. Remember the front cover horn theory from last year


15. It hasn’t been called Man/Woman of the Year since 1999, so Trump’s brackets have been picked up on too


16. “Probably” is no good for Julia Louis-Dreyfus either

17. Or this very bad boy

The final word? Time’s Chief Content Officer Alan Murray’s response:

Amazing.  Not a speck of truth here
