Cover Story: 'Harper's' Puts Trump Behind Bars

In one of the most aggressive cover story treatments of the President-elect yet, the January 2017 issue of Harper’s depicts Donald Trump behind bars and features the cover lines: “Make America Great Again And Stop Trump Before He Starts.”

The digital edition is available today, but at least one hard copy was on display, peeking out of a Harper’s magazine bag, tucked underneath a Christmas tree with other presents in the lobby of Trump Tower.

The "present" was left under the tree by Harper's staffers at 2:29 p.m. Thursday.

"I'm awaiting word on how long it remained," confided a Harper's spokesperson, adding: "I asked them to set a timer."

Later, she confirmed that "it remained for about as long as it took to take the photo. But they left some on a table at Trump Grill."

    And so it begins!

     ...  And shame on anyone and everyone who allowed this psychotic failure of a human being to get this far.

    Will buy.  But first:  does this story give any ink on who would actually do this, and under what authority?  So far, every method can be vetoed by the GOP.

    Without this, it's just another Dem wet dream.  "Yeah!  That feels really nice, to think about this...yeah."  Cmon.

    Asked someone in Canada if we could trade presidents. A resounding no. How about if Trudeau just annexes us ?

    Good point. Those poor, dead Founding Fathers never imagined in their worst nightmares that it would ever get to this point, where every safety measure they so carefully installed would be controlled by one political faction.

    Either annex us, or start building their own wall.
