Donald Trump Jr. Just Shared a Fake Time Magazine Cover Of His Dad And Twitter Exploded
Twitter users are having a blast poking fun at Donald Trump Jr. after he posted a bizarre image of his father as a superhero online.
The president’s eldest son shared this fake Time magazine cover to Instagram on Friday night showing a bearded Trump wearing a Superman-style costume with the letter “T” instead of “S” emblazoned across his chest.
A search through Time’s cover archive quickly proved that it is, of course, bogus.
The fake post caught the attention of Twitter user @goldengateblond, who couldn’t quite believe her eyes:

Her tweet went viral, and fellow Twitter users couldn’t help joining in.
Some referenced Time’s asking of the Trump Organization to remove fake covers of the magazine on display at the presidential family’s business properties. Others, meanwhile, called it a “fresh hell” and “disturbing.”
Here are some highlights of the responses:
Alt-right porn is so weird.
