Pssst... Hey Time magazine

That's not the Kremlin, dumbasses.

The fact you put up Saint Basil's Cathedral on the front cover and nobody caught it, leaves me skeptical of your fact-checking abilities.

Guess we see what we want to see.

It's like superimposing St. Paul's over the WH in the middle of a big political fight when the Media is pushing a narrative that the President is the Slave of Theresa May.

All that would do is imply Anglicanism is running America, making a laughing stock of the periodical.

This cover would only make sense if Donald Trump was trying to make Eastern Orthodoxy the official Religion of the USA.

Doesn't surprise me.. They say some never can grasp abstraction.

Everyone else gets it, but a few dimbulbs on the right think they have an opportunity to say "look at me, I'm so clever, they're so stooopid."

No they aren't. Nothing symbolizes Moscow as well St Basils Cathedral.

Some never grasp a flawed analogy, even when it's clearly pointed out to them.

marcus says

Yes, Me and the other hundreds of thousands who laughed their ass off at this today.

Do you really think that saying "Moscow controls Trump" carries any less weight than saying "the Kremlin" controls Trump ?

Do you really think that decision makers at Time thought that was the Kremlin ? I would bet that St. Basil's is mentioned in the description of the cover, in the magazine.

I am embarrassed for you. Again.

St. Basil's is a Cathedral and represents Eastern Orthodoxy.

The Kremlin is a Political Center, and is literally a stand-in for Moscow and Russia, like Whitehall is a Stand-in for the Gov't of the United Kingdom, and the WH for the USA.

Nobody ever said "Meanwhile, at Saint Basil's, insiders close to Yeltsin say he plans to..."

or "According to the Coliseum, Berlisconi is banging more hot models..."

I am embarrassed for Time Magazine. I'm not surprised by you at all.

So let me get this straight. Are you saying that you don't think St. Basil's Cathedral symbolizes Moscow ?

Not the Government. Only Orthodoxy, and perhaps Moscow as a city.

It's as ludicrous as claiming the Coliseum represents the Government of Italy, and not the city of Rome.

It's a magazine cover. A cool blending of images. The Kremlin is ugly in comparison.

TwoScoopsMcGee says

Not the Government. Only Orthodoxy

IT's the most striking architecture in Moscow, that's familiar to everyone. People see that and they think Moscow instantly. I say it works and that Time chose it carefully and knowing full well what it was. Who knows, maybe they had other images to choose from, that just didn't work. Again, it's a little abstract (not very).

No, its a small group of zealots who "get it." CNN lies to you and makes you think only extremists don't accept your wild conspiracy theory. Its fake news. People are smarter than you think

I also get it, that some people when triggered lose all ability to reason.

I said everyone gets it, I didn't say everyone agrees with it. That one third of the country is still there.

You know, it's sort of like you can "get" a joke, without thinking it's funny.

Wow. You think that Time implied that the Cathedral was the Kremlin, and are correcting them for it? Can you imagine if the press took such liberties in rearranging what Trump said into something else? You constantly blast the 'fake news' media for 1/10th of the infraction that you are committing in this thread.

Haha the press takes his words, and pieces them together to support whatever hit piece narrative they are pushing de jeur.

This is no different.

Notice how much the MSM has been going on about the DNC lawsuit and seth rich?

That's exactly what they do. And this is one of them.

Yes, Time has a long history of Fake news. There's a plethora of covers in their other thread, it's clear they have a hard Left attitude.

Beyond the cover, What evidence is there that the Kremlin is taking over the White House?

A totally tired cliche doesn't qualify as "new" therefore it isn't "news." It's so bad it's not even fake news! Just made up fantasy! Time might as well publish the next Harry Potter book, they got that fantasy genre going for them already!

If I didn't watch Goodman and Tim Black now and again, I wouldn't have even known there was a lawsuit against the DNC. The Media is studiously ignoring it.
