Time taunts Trump with bald eagle blooper reel

Time magazine is subtly hitting back at Donald Trump for lashing out after failing to win the publication’s Person of the Year.

Shortly after Time named German Chancellor Angela Merkel victor of the annual distinction, Trump tweeted “I told you so” in reference to a prediction he made last month that the magazine’s editors “mentally” couldn’t put him at the top of the list even if he deserved to be there.

“I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked person who is ruining Germany,” the GOP front-runner told his millions of followers.

In an indirect response to the trash-talk, tweeted a previously unreleased blooper from its instantly iconic interview with the real estate mogul earlier in the year.

“Watch Donald Trump dodge a bald eagle,” the outlet invited its readers, providing a link to an elusive video featuring the billionaire businessman being forced to duck as the country’s national bird attempts to take flight.
