Channeling the ’80’s hit movie “Back to the Future,” the Boston Globe has published a fake front page offering its predictions of a Donald Trump presidency one year from now in 2017.
With headlines blaring “Deportations to Begin,” the sub-headline reads, “President Trump calls for tripling of ICE force; riots continue.” The page also reports markets sinking in the face of a trade war; U.S. soldiers refusing to kill ISIS families; and curfews extending to numbers of cities.
A pdf of the full front page can be seen here.
The fake front page also accompanies an editorial by the Boston Globe demanding that “The GOP must stop Trump,”stating that “Donald J. Trump’s vision for the future of our nation is as deeply disturbing as it is profoundly un-American.” The editorial states:
He winks and nods at political violence at his rallies. He says he wants to “open up” libel laws to punish critics in the news media and calls them “scum.” He promised to shut out an entire class of immigrants and visitors to the United States on the sole basis of their religion.
But what impact will this effort by the Globe make on the GOP race?
