Good grief. I saw that image posted in a thread here recently, and I naturally assumed it was somebody's clever photoshop job (well, in a way I guess it was). I had no idea Time was doing that for real.

Going to buy this issue. That and the New Yorker cover from a few months back will be permanent reminders of the worst period of my life as an immigrant.

not to draw an equivalence but I think they're both reminders of the worst period in the life of natural born citizens too = S

You know, I think that's a good idea. I don't have any kind of historical periodicals that I've bought and saved from my life, but I think I just might buy one of those.

Also need to find a way to buy an issue of the NYT if Trump is actually removed from office. Not that I'm counting on that happening.

Considering its gaudiness, it's a much better representation of Trump's relationship with Russia, though.

Gaudy Trump in the shadow of the Russian fortress.

Well yeah; but then the Eiffel Tower isn't the seat of French government either; but whenever you want to visually invoke "Paris" or France in general the icon is immediately recognizable.

I wouldn't call it the Elysee Palace, though.

So imagine a picture of the Eiffel Tower growing out of the White House, captioned with "White House transforms into Elysee Palace". Seems a bit stupid, no?

Or how about this: imagine a picture of Westminster Palace in London, with the clocktower replaced by the Washington Monument, captioned "Houses of Parliament resembling American White House these days". No, it fucking doesn't.

My apologies, I thought I had seen a link to one of these here:

Time Magazine cover depicts the Kremlin overtaking the White House - USA Today
Time magazine cover shows Trump's White House transforming into the Kremlin - Business Insider
Time’s latest cover depicts Kremlin takeover of White House | New York Post
etc.

Ah, nah.

Although USA Today and the BI at least get it right in their articles:

Quote:
The magazine's latest cover depicts St. Basil's Cathedral — meant to represent the Kremlin — overtaking the White House (literally).
Quote:
Time magazine on Thursday published a stunning illustration on its cover for the May 29th issue, depicting the White House mutating into a Kremlin-like building, featuring the distinctive onion domes and red brick of Russia's Saint Basil's Cathedral.
NY Post is fail, though.

It literally took me five seconds to find this:

Unproved Claims Around DNC Staffer Seth Rich Re-Emerge, Months After Death : NPR

I'll just quote the statement from Rich's family:
Quote:
"As we've seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press. Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we've seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so. We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth's murderers. The services of the private investigator who spoke to press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family."
That private investigator is apparently a paid Fox News contributor with a reputation for inventing outlandish conspiracy theories.

At this point, the new troll is not even worth responding to. He wants no discussion or debate, nor even cares to do anything but make random, idiotic, psychotic rants as if he just learned how to make anonymous posts on the internet yesterday.

I doubt he reads anything but a thread title before posting. It's like this is his newfound restroom and he's making his rounds through the stalls to write stupid shit on the walls.
