President Donald Trump was in rare form earlier this week.
Seemingly out of nowhere, he tweeted that he was offered the distinction of TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year,” but turned it down because there was no guarantee and an obligation for a “major photo shoot” and interview.
TIME was quick to refute the claim.
It was the equivalent of being in middle school and saying someone was your girlfriend, and they come up right behind you and say you’re lying. Perhaps I’m getting too personal.
Celebraties across the spectrum decided to have a little fun with ole’ No. 45 making a fool of himself.
But Noah Syndergaard managed to take the cake. Known for having a great sense of humor in baseball circles, this might have been his coming out party for the rest of the world.
The joke takes on an added level of hilarity when you consider the fact that Syndergaard wasn’t very good on the field this season. Much like the POTUS in the White House, he stunk the joint up.
Syndergaard put up the lowest WAR total in his career with only 0.8.
But compare that total to Trump’s NHAAAEIW (Nuclear Holocaust Avoidance Above Anyone Else In the World) total of -3.0, and Syndergaard’s numbers don’t look so bad.
