Andy Murray savagely trolls Donald Trump over Time magazine controversy

GETTYAndy Murray has hit out and mocked Donald Trump

Trump tweeted Friday that Time told him he would "probably" be named Person of the Year for 2017.

Dreyfus - while derisively referencing Trump - wrote, "NYTimes just called to say I was probably going to be named comedienne of the year", but she had to pass.

The US President was named TIME's Person of the Year in 2016, after his historic - and unexpected - election to the highest office in his land.

- Andy Murray (@andy_murray) November 24, 2017Sports Illustrated called and said I was probably going to be Sportsman of the Year, but it was going to take a long photo shoot and interview.

In a tweet Friday as he spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Florida, Trump sounded dismissive of the honor he received a year ago and could well receive again. "Thank you @oreillyfactor for your wonderful editorial as to why I should have been @TIME Magazine's Person of the Year".

Georgia: 12 dead in hotel fire
Three Turks and an Israeli were being treated at the Batumi University clinic, spokesman Kakha Chikhradze told Palitra News TV. More than 100 guests and employees were evacuated after the fire, of which the cause remains unknown.

Arquette was likely referring to a Washington Post report which found that a framed copy of a fake Time magazine cover featuring Trump's photo hung in five of his luxury golf clubs. "The mag frequently includes photo spreads and interviews with several "finalist" type people, not just the person".

Bbc just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named sports personality of the year but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. "TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6", the magazine said in a statement on Twitter.

This is not the first time Trump publicly criticized Time.

At the time, explaining their decision, the judges wrote: "It's hard to measure the scale of his disruption".

"Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!" the headline on the fake cover read. "You should run Time!". The magazine counters that Trump has it all wrong.
