Time Magazine named Donald Trump to the short list of their Person of the Year 2015 this week. The photoshoot for the issue was done months ago, but with the article being published and having basically everything on Donald Trump's nomination campaign trending online, the internet only just got the gift of the above GIF.

Beyond the obvious hilarity of watching Trump dodge a bald eagle at his desk, there is the beautiful irony that a hopeful Presidential Nominee was almost attacked by a bald eagle named Uncle Sam.

Others also replied to @Time by using some of Trump's recent rhetoric with the GIF:



Watch the full behind-the-scenes of Time's photoshoot with Trump below.



As always, Trump had his own last words:

Take a look behind the scenes of presidential campaign commercial production in this awkward video!


The footage comes from a reel of uncut material published by Cruz for use by Super PACs in political ads. Super PACs are independently funded political action committees who support candidates indirectly through those ads you see on tv every election year. You know, the ones that come with that "paid for by the people for candidate x" disclaimer at the end of every commercial. Candidates are legally not allowed to coordinate with these independent committees on campaign ads, so they release footage of themselves on sites like YouTube. This means the video is in the public domain and becomes fair game not only for Super PACs to use, but in this case for CNN to put together into a delightfully awkward super cut.

The BrandalismProject, is a self-declared anti-advertisement art movement and has claimed responsibility for over 600 fake advertisements recently installed throughout Paris. The driving force behind the group's effort is the beginning of the UN Climate Change Conference.



"Amidst the French state of emergency banning all public gatherings following the terrorist attacks on 13 November in Paris, the 'Brandalism' project has worked with Parisians to insert unauthorized artworks across the city that aim to highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change," BrandalismProject said in a statement.

The project is a collaboration between 80 artists from 19 different countries and the targets include AirFrance, Dow Chemicals, and Volkswagen, which is getting a lot of attention for perpetrating an environmental fraud.

Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon and a frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.

He is also a rap legend.

The soft-spoken politico has released a new 60-second radio advertisement that is laid over a pretty dope rap. The $150,000 radio ad buy, called "Freedom," will air for two weeks.

The ad used rapper Aspiring Mogul and is intended to target black youth.

"Reaching them on a level they appreciate and follow and see if we can attract their consciousness about the election," Carson campaign spokesman Doug Watts told ABC News.

"They need to get involved and express their voice through their vote."

Of course, this is also the dude that doesn't believe in evolution and says prison makes people gay ...so...

The third GOP presidential debate is tonight, and once again the candidates will face off on issues ranging from gun control and abortion to the economy and job creation.

Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie, and John Kasic will participate in the debate.

While there are stark differences between the GOP and Democratic politicians running for the highest office, are normal Americans really that different?

Cut produced the video above where they had 60 Democrats and 60 Republicans answer different questions.

The results were pretty amazing.

Should children born in the US to undocumented immigrants be deported?

Would Donald Trump make a good president?

The blue shirts (Democrats) and red shirts (Republicans) were mixed on a lot of the answers.

We aren't so different, after all!

Catch the GOP debate on CNBC tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

Trump of The Day: The Donald Says Life Hasn't Been Easy For Him, Dad Gave Him 'Small' Loan of $1 Million

Life has not been easy for Donald Trump.

He wants you to know this. He also just gave his opponents the most perfect political attack ad ever created.

During an interview on the Today Show, the billionaire and Republican presidential frontrunner lamented at how difficult building his business had been.

"It has not been easy for me," he said. "I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of $1 million, and I came into Manhattan."

Just a small loan of $1 million. How can anyone expect to succeed with such a small loan?!

But Trump persevered, you see.

Opal Covey has been sent by God to run the city government of Toledo...or else.

The five-time mayoral candidate is running for mayor once again because God told her to, of course.

The self-identified prophetess had a lot to say in a recent interview about her campaign, which is mostly known for wanting to build theme parks in the city.

"Thank you, Jesus," she told NBC24, after speaking in tongues.

"That was a confirmation, if people don't give me what I earned in 2013 back, and I'm not on that seat in November, then you'll see God visit the city in the greatest destruction you've ever seen."

Here's some bonus footage of her speaking in tongues and calling for God's wrath against someone who didn't support her campaign.

Elect Opal Covey, Toledo. For all of our souls.
