Is that the Devil in disguise?
Time named Donald Trump person of the year on Wednesday, unsurprisingly. And seemingly half the internet was convinced the magazine’s designers decided to portray the president-elect as Satan on the cover.
With a suspect placement of the iconic M over his bouffant mane that lent the former reality TV star two sharp red horns, Trump looked a lot like Beelzebub to some.
The theory made the rounds on Twitter Wednesday.
Time magazine gave Trump devil horns..

Come on, those aren’t horns on Trump’s “Time Magazine” Person of the Year cover. Those are Sheriff’s… hat… corners.

Others saw the red protrusions as the mark of a cuckold.
Time, for its part, played down the issue, insisting “any resemblance to cats, bats or devil horns is entirely coincidental” and listing 35 times a similar thing has happened.
