Donald Trump has been awarded the Time Magazine prestigious Hitler of the Year Award and is said to be "honoured" by the accolade.

The award, which has been routinely handed to lunatics and demagogues since 1927, was given to Mr Trump to recognise his work on bringing an end to democracy, liberal values, truth, facts, decency and social progress in the United States.

Other recipients of the Hitler of the Year Award include; Adolf Hitler who is famous for starting World War Two and genocide, Joseph Stalin who is famous for killing more people than Hitler, Chiang Kai Shek who is famous for killing more people than Stalin and King Faisal of Saudi Arabia who is famous for killing more people than Chiang Kai Shek.

Eisenhower received the award for being profligate with American lives in WW2, Truman received it for dropping two nuclear bombs on starving civilians, Churchill got it for levelling Dresden and FDR got it for being asleep when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour. Zuckerberg got it for turning an entire generation into vacuous, spoon fed idiots.

Kissinger got it for, well, being Kissinger and giving back his Nobel Peace Prize so he could look himself in the mirror when shaving.

The editor of Time Magazine wrote of the award;

"Trump reminds us that demagoguery feeds on despair and that truth is only as powerful as those who speak it."

Trump has yet to Google the words demagoguery and narcissist.
