BOSTON, Mass. – The Boston Globe’s Sunday edition is getting a lot of people talking. The paper’s front page is offering a satirical glimpse of what a Donald Trump presidency would look like a year from now.
The headline on the paper’s editorial edition front page is “DEPORTATIONS TO BEGIN.”
Other articles in the edition include “CURFEWS EXTENDED,” “A TRADE WAR LOOMS,” and “A NEW LIBEL LAW TARGETS ‘ABSOLUTE SCUM’ IN THE PRESS.”
The Globe’s editorial board said, “Our goal is to create a conversation about what a Donald Trump presidency could look like and the vision he has for America’s future.”
As the newspapers were hitting the presses, printing out and getting ready to be loaded up and sent out the door, the page was already generating a buzz around town.
“I’m afraid for this election coming up. It’s kind of like almost I don’t believe it,” said one Bostonian.
“I don’t believe it doesn’t feel real, it’s like a joke to me,” said another.
Globe officials also said they want American voters to go to the polls in November with their eyes open.
“We want Americans still considering candidates going into the voting booths with a clear view of the presidency they are choosing,” the paper said in a statement.
