First glimpse at TIME’s foreboding Trump cover sparks social media frenzy

The coronation of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump continues in earnest following his multiple primary wins on Super Tuesday.

Trump’s media domination continued on Thursday, highlighted by a foreboding cover by Time magazine, which featured labels such as “bully” and “demagogue” among three other designation boxes — four of which are checked. The last, “45th President of the United States,” has yet to be achieved.

It’s not like Trump has a great relationship with the magazine, having recently taken issue with Time for their choice of 2015 “Person of the Year” — German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“I said I’ll never be chosen because I’m not a part of the TIME establishment,” he said at the time. “I think they absolutely picked the wrong person. I think they picked the person that’s really done tremendous damage to Germany.”

One thing is certain, the name Trump breeds controversy … and ratings. Here’s a sampling of responses to the cover from Twitter:
