The day after Thanksgiving President Trump tweeted “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ‘Man (Person) of the Year’ like last year…I said probably is no good and took a pass.”

An official at Time tweeted back there wasn’t a ‘speck of truth’ in Trump’s tweet.

And the internet exploded.

And another odd fact surfaced: The Washington Post had published a story, last June, about a photograph hanging on the wall at Mar-a-largo and four other Trump Country Clubs. That photograph showed Trump on the cover of Time magazine on March 1, 2009 – but there was a problem: There was no edition of Time Magazine on March 1. The photograph was a fraud. And Trump didn’t deny it or tweet it was ‘fake news.’

Turning off the computer, I sat back. In an old movie by Frank Capra, two elderly sisters from a hamlet in Vermont, testifying at a trial, told the judge that Gary Cooper was ‘pixelated.’ The judge was about to drop the gavel and send Cooper to the looney-bin when Cooper asked the sisters, Who else is pixelated? And they said, Why everyone, but us.

There’s also a simple way to solve this mystery too: All President Trump needs to do is tweet who, at Time magazine, called him. Or he could produce the phone record. Then we’d know who’s pixelated – Donald Trump or Time magazine.
