New York Times Mocks Trump with Postage Stamp Sized Mug Shot on Front Page, Larger Main Photo is of Russian Dissident Plane Crash


You’ve got to hand it to the front page editors of the New York Times.

Instead of running a huge version of Donald Trump’s mug shot, they minimized him but making the picture from his Atlanta booking the size of a postage stamp.

The main photo on page 1 is of

The crashed plane carrying Putin enemy and Russian dissident Yevgeny V. Prigozhin. The message there is that we all know what really happened to the former Wagner leader. When Vladimir Putin doesn’t like you, the choices are poison, falling out an open (or closed) window, or a crash of some kind.
As for Trump, the Times laughs in his face. A small face, at that.
