TIME Magazine refutes Trump’s claim that he turned down 2017 Person of the Year award

TIME Magazine fired back
at President Donald Trump’s earlier claim on Friday that he had turned
down an offer to be named its “Person of the Year,” calling his
assertion “incorrect.”

“The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year,”
the magazine tweeted Friday night. “TIME does not comment on our choice
until publication, which is December 6.”

Trump tweeted
earlier in the day that he “took a pass” at the title after the
magazine reached out to him, because he had to satisfy certain editorial
obligations.

“Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year,” Trump said.

“But I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot,”
his tweet continued. “I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks
anyway!”

Alan Murray, chief content officer of Time Inc., also threw water on
Trump’s claims: “Amazing. Not a speck of truth here,” Murray tweeted Friday night.

Trump, who won the award in 2016, took exception
to it that year, after the magazine published his picture with the
accompanying title on the cover: “PRESIDENT OF THE DIVIDED STATES OF
AMERICA.”

The magazine has opened an unofficial public poll, in which Trump is tied for third place
at 5% of the vote along with the hashtag “#MeToo,” which stems from the
recent wave of sexual harassment allegations that emerged in various
industries, and “The Dreamers” — undocumented immigrants who were
brought to the US.

At the time of this post, Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia is ranked No. 1 with 21% of the vote.

The public poll closes December 3.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
