Yes he's not interested in a maybe. I'd say even if he was in the running the word WAS is now operative.

Could an ego be any bigger?

Trump was getting photographed for his Time Person of the Year last year around this time, before December.

Has it got that bad ?
I mean I know he can't be asked questions but are no pictures allowed either ?

Why would you think that? Is it because I think in terms of common sense?

So many of you here are saying you can't believe Trump but you're getting your answers from one twitter against another twitter. The source of the opposition is the magazine in question. The silly part, people are just looking at the response and saying it didn't happen when the response itself didn't say anything about it NOT happening. It only stated that no one knows who is chosen until the day it's on the shelves. Apparently it's an in house secret until that point. They didn't say "No we did not talk to Trump". People are just on this silly bandwagon of "Trump Lies".

...and you guys call Trump supporters brainless. It's as if you're just digging the bottom of the barrel for dirt and all you're bringing up is more silliness, especially when you're taking words and giving them new meaning. Isn't that always how it's been?


I just came for the popcorn to watch you people toss out the next silly explanation with how Trump is a fool. Just remember one thing... The guy is a billionaire and he's president.

Yeah yeah... I know the response.

"His dad gave him the money".
- His dad gave him a million to get started which he had to pay back. His dad didn't give him his billions.

"Idiot rednecks voted him in, that's why he's PotUS".
- Half the country voted him in office. Good to see so many rednecks are in this country. Half huh?

You know I fully accept that there was an argument that Hilary Clinton was sick in the head.

But there's so much evidence now that Trump is even more sick in the head.

Playing a little fast and loose with the facts there eh?

a 1985 casino-license document showed that Donald Trump owed his father and father’s businesses about $14 million.

Another 3.5 million in casino chips when his dad bailed out his failed casino enterprise.

And his dad acted as guarantor against a 70 million loan he took out.

And he benefited from 1-2 million in a trust fund that he was given as a gift.

When I found out I also declined their pitiful offer.
At first I thought it was awesome but then found out I was their 2nd choice after Trump.

I felt more insulted than anything really.

TIME is fake news anyways, so I let it go.

I like Trump's "sick in the head" a lot more than Hillary's "sick in the head"

Hillary's "sick in the head" causes people's deaths, like Benghazi.

Trump's "sick in the head" just causes lulz.


Trump: "I like people who weren't captured" In regards to a false republican John McCain. (lol)

Hillary: "Can't we just drone him" (murder him) In regards to a real hero exposing her grand scale corruption, Julian Assange.

A very big difference there in virtues. One is human, the other is a psychopathic animalistic criminal mind.

Me too.
He's a logical 3rd choice.

In his interview I hope they ask him what his favorite video games and new movies are.

“Time” isn’t a person tweeting on twitter. It’s a large organization.

The response doesn't matter one way or the other , the assertion that he turned it down is the point , and it's just silly.
To be named Person of the Year two years in succession would be an ego boost par excellence and there's no way he would turn it down just because they wanted an interview and some pictures.

Why wouldn't he do an interview , he's the president of the United States !


It does matter if it is false. Time magazine and Time Warner are massive companies in New York. Trump has been dealing with them for decades. The notion that the person who composes Time’s tweets is privy to every conversation that everyone at the organization has is absurd.


Trump does have a Big EGO though.
He likes to attach his name like Laverne to everything he touches so it is not far fetched he would lie about it.

My source against your source? Toss it at me. While you're at it, read this one...

Fact Check Site



Marco Rubio says Trump hardly pulled that off on his own.

Among their many testy exchanges at the Republican debate in Detroit on March 3, 2016, was how much wealth Trump inherited.

"He talks about these great businesses that he's built," Rubio said. "He inherited over $100 million."

Trump interjected: "Wrong. Wrong. Wrong."

Trump added, "First of all, I got a call from my sister and brother tonight, and they said, ‘We had no idea Dad gave you $200 million.’ Believe me, I started off with $1 million. I built a company that's worth more than $10 billion. And I say it not in a bragging way, but that's the kind of thinking we need."


But of course you can't take it from the mouth of Trump! That would be crazy...


We asked a Rubio spokesman for his evidence that Trump inherited more than $100 million. (Rubio cited an even higher number of $200 million at a Feb. 25 debate.)

"The evidence would be on Donald Trump's tax returns right? Guess he'll need to shoot those on over to disprove the claim," Joe Pounder told PolitiFact. "Until then, all we have is his word that his inheritance was split amongst family members … All we know is there was an inheritance of up to $200 million. Donald Trump has never disputed the inheritance."


Keep reading that link. There is some juicy stuff there. I'll give you a hint... You don't know, you likely wont know, you can only assume but assuming isn't factual so you simply don't know. The only one that does is Trump himself.

However. Trump's estimated worth by Forbes in 82 was 200m. You can be sure of this... After his father passed away in 1999, his estate was only worth between 100 and 300 million. IF and ONLY IF he received 200m from his father's death, not dividing it up between all of his family members... how cruel!... His worth would have only been average 200 million more than what he had at that time. Remember, his dad's estate was ONLY 100-300 million.

Today, Trump is estimated worth 3.1 BILLION and that's not even his own personal assumption to what he thinks he's worth.

I imagine 300 million is chump change to a Billionaire!


So lets have your sources. They better be solid!

Trump being a billionaire and president precludes him from being an idiot, how?

You can know your job and be good at it and still be an idiot in how you go about it. Maybe we're all working from different definitions of idiot here.

When I talk about Trump being an idiot, I don't mean he has no knowledge of being a businessman or business. On the contrary, Trump knows his business well. But that's where it ends. It doesn't extend to any other area, though I realize a lot of people worship money to the point they think it does.

If society could be fixed by a real estate deal, Trump would be the one to call. His lies and half truths would be an advantage then. But that isn't the case.

What a peculiar and irrelevant thing to say. There is no reason, explanation or outcome that I can think of that would be motivation to tweet this?

Even if it were true, why on earth would you mention it? It just makes you sound like a self-aggrandizing, self-important, arrogant toss pot?


Man you haven't got a good feel of Trump. In his mind he's the BEST self-aggrandizing, self-important, arrogant toss pot.



Who happens to be the most powerful man in the world. Sometimes it’s tough being number one.


Is that you Donald?

We have a saying...

"That boy is book smart but has no common sense".

I don't get the impression that this sticks to Trump. He may be a joker, he may have some quirks about being goofy, silly, illusions of grandeur but it's most definitely not stupid by any definition of the word. Knowing how to run a job is one thing but being a self made billionaire, I wouldn't consider that person stupid by any stretch. A guy who was able to capture the attention of the world and put himself in the whitehouse is far from stupid. You could say that Obama was stupid based on the idiotic choices he made while in the whitehouse but I personally believe he wanted to make those choices on purpose. To many of us, they were idiotic, chaotic, self centered, morally wrong... But I doubt even he was stupid.

Manipulative, cunning, sarcastic, dedicated... These are words I would use to describe Trump. Stupid is not one of them.
