Aside from the girlie pictures, Playboy is primarily about having style and class. Trump doesn't; no wonder they're embarrassed now.

Hustler might seem a better fit for Trump -- except that say what you will about Larry Flynt, he's a big fan of the Free Press.

Everyone is very proud of this one.  He's such a good reader!

Maybe the Orange farker will stroke out upon reading this. I am sure he will tout what a loser magazine it is and how "SAD!" it is to be attacked by them.

/c'mon dumbo, let's hemorrhage!

Yep. May 2016 issue, for what that's worth. (PSFW, but don't click the links.)

There's also what seems an interestingly prescient bit in the 2014 Anniversary Issue retrospective column on several decades of Assholes: "Imagine if Nixon's Watergate waterloo happened today. He'd just ride it out while Fox News covered his ass."

Maybe before Hustler started competing with them. As an avid parent snoop when they left the house, the only class the magazine had was on how much the article writers bragged how awesome they were, right before and after advertising the biggest dick extending car and sex mansion planning. and softcore porn. and tackiest sundial money watches. and Sandal vacations next to a nude beach 20 miles away.

It only advertised to the McMansion-wanting 90's era of "you need this to be happy" because the good times never end.

/it was faster than dial up. Spice girls was my first time.

It has been said many times but Trump is what poor anyone who has never known an actual rich person (looking at you stupid McSuburbanite) believes every rich person is like.  I mean seriously he boasts of farking his workers and contractors over, which is you by the way, and you lap that shiat up and say he is a "great businessman" instead of what you would say if he was doing it to you.

Just once I'd like to see the frame with just a white block inside it. That, technically, is the original.

Own it, Playboy. Through the 80s, and culminating with trump on your cover in 1990, he was exactly the type of douche you had been hyping as the classy rich and well to do of America. You pandered to the type who longed to be that shiat bag leaning on the the Rolls in the "poverty sucks" poster. You fawned over audio components no one but someone with dough could buy. You talked of travel and foods and a lifestyle no one but people with money could afford. trump was the epitome of the douchebag you inspired a decade of broke-ass American men to chase. trump acquired all bullshiat you said would make the man. He had the personality and smarmy condescension towards the world most of us live in that you helped foster, Playboy. Your magazine was more than worthy of him on the cover, because at the time you were just as tacky and gauche and ridiculous as he was. Whether you remain a bastion of pseudo class, fake ass views and product pitches I don't know. My dad shat away a good portion of his adult life chasing a dream attached to the picture of a 50s era Mercedes Gullwing torn from the pages of Playboy and pinned over his desk. He was going to entrepreneur his way into that car because reasons and playboy. He had no business with his intelligence and business acumen chasing that car. He should have been reading Penthouse and had a little less loftier goals. Or read Hustler as my 15 year old self was and saw the world he was destined for.

Ugh, that just reminded me that my wife told me earlier that her dad has recently turned into an anti-climate change Trump supporter.  This is an upper middle class Republican who actually voted for Clinton in the election and for some reason now supports him after witnessing the actual disaster. And the climate change thing?  Yeah, he's a chemical engineer so he's not exactly dumb.

We think we've pinpointed the sudden turn though. He just retired in the spring and his Fox News viewing time has increased exponentially.

I'd love to see "Saturday Night Live" and David Letterman apologize for the times DT was on those shows, insofar as such appearances helped his image as "rich successful businessman who can talk to the masses."

Had to check if Flynt was dead or alive (he's alive).  Maybe it was Penthouse's publisher who died.
