Been at the receiving end of jokes and sarcastic comments, US President Donald Trump in his typical fashion provided fresh ammunition to trolls on Friday, claiming he had passed up an opportunity to be ‘probably’ named the TIME ‘Person of the Year’.

While the Time magazine refuted Trump’s story, it set off a flurry of tweets mercilessly making fun of the US President. Meanwhile, Trump’s tweet which sparked off this onslaught is sure to make it to the list of ‘Craziest Trump Quotes’, ‘Most Outrageous Trump Quotes’  and other such lists on the internet, where there are also lists of ‘Trumpisms’ or expressions used by Trump such as ‘bigly’ and ‘covfefe’.

In a Friday evening tweet, Trump said, “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”.

Many picked this up to troll Trump. Tennis player Andy Murray said, tongue-in-cheek, that he had turned down BBC for Sports Personality of the Year. Copying Trump’s tweet, he said, “Bbc just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named sports personality of the year but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”.

American comedian David Schneider too joined in by saying he turned down on becoming the next James Bond in return for an interview and major photo shoot by Hollywood!

Some were more hard hitting. One Sarah Kendzior‏ @sarahkendzior tweeted: “TIME should make Putin “Man of the Year” so Trump’s fragile ego will have to do public battle with his treasonous deference”.

US President Donald Trump frequently brags about his cover appearances in the iconic magazine. He has falsely claimed to hold the record of cover appearances, and was revealed earlier this year to have displayed fake issues of Time at several of his private golf clubs.

Time Magazine refuted Trump’s account of how he rejected a request for an interview and photo shoot ahead of its Person of the Year issue. The magazine said the president was incorrect about how it makes its choice.

“The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year,” the magazine tweeted Friday night. “TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.”

Trump had won the award last year (2016), but he took exception to it after the magazine published his picture with the accompanying title on the cover: “PRESIDENT OF THE DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA.”

Trump has frequently – falsely – bragged that he holds the record for cover appearances on Time Magazine. In June, The Washington Post revealed that several of Mr Trump’s golf clubs prominently display a framed copy of a fake Time cover featuring several positive headlines and Trump as its cover.

The magazine’s tradition – begun in 1927 as ‘Man of the Year’ – recognises the person who “for better or for worse… has done the most to influence the events of the year”, the BBC said. The publication invites readers to vote on who they think has earned the title, but the final decision is made by editors.
