Trump broke the Leftist narrative once again by proving his good-natured sense of humor.
When Time Magazine said they wanted to put Trump on the cover with a Bald Eagle, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. However, photographer Martin Schoeller was hoping to capture a new side of Trump.
Schoeller had photographed Trump before. He knew the challenges he was facing.
According to Time:
“He’s very difficult to photograph,” says Schoeller. “If you ask him to look up a little bit, he says no or he just doesn’t do it. He literally has one angle. If I ask him to smile, he puts on a big grin and then he goes back to his Zoolander ‘blue steel’ look. And the ‘blue steel’ stays for as ever long as it takes to get the photograph.”
This time, however, Schoeller wanted to try something different. “When I get an assignment, I do my research and try to figure out what kind of picture would make the most sense given who the person is and what they’ve been up to,” he says. With Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again”, Schoeller thought about adding a bald eagle – the USA’s national emblem – to the photo. “Mr. Trump liked that idea,” says the photographer. “I thought he might be open to it considering he’s a man who loves attention. He likes controversy, and he likes to be in the spotlight.”
I can imagine Trump’s hair taking quite a bit of time in a normal photo shoot. Now imagine one big angry bird in Trump’s hair.
Below is the video of the shoot. For those who say that Donald Trump is an egomaniac, well this video speaks otherwise.
