Here’s the devilish detail you might have missed on that Donald Trump TIME cover

One hell of a magazine cover

Here’s the devilish detail you might have missed on that Donald Trump TIME cover

Did you roll your eyes on seeing TIME Magazine’s latest cover? The one in which they named president-elect, straw-haired man and terrifying prospect Donald Trump as their latest Person Of The Year? Then your peepers probably missed this pretty hellish detail on the cover. 

Take a little look at Trump’s scalp. Notice anything particularly satanic about it? Aside from the usual harbinger of doomishness vibe he’s got going on, that giant letter ‘M’, as hoards of people on social media have been pointing out today, sure looks like a couple of devil horns.


TIME Magazine, quick to clarify that any hints towards the future White House occupant being a trident-sporting pointy-tailed evil Hell dweller are purely unintentional and in no way sneaky, responded by updating the web gallery of ‘35 TIME Magazine Covers That Appeared to Give People Horns’, adding “Donald Trump joins Hillary Clinton, Pope Francis, one large animal and many others who have appeared on the magazine's front with the eyebrow raising features. Given the shape of the letter "m" in the magazine's name and its location on the cover, many other subjects in the past have also appeared to sprout extra features. Any resemblance to cats, bats or devil horns is entirely coincidental."

Here’s a pick of the best of the rest...
