Oops! Newsweek Prints Cover With Clinton Named President — See It Now

Nov 8, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A special edition of Newsweek showcasing Hillary Clinton as the winner of the presidential election hit the street even before the Election Day voting began.

The publication sent out a tweet Monday noting that a licensee of Newsweek had been preparing two different commemorative editions, with the other one featuring Donald Trump on the cover. (You can see both covers below.)

The New York Post reports that the Clinton issue made its way to the stands at a Barnes & Noble outlet.

The Post quotes the company’s CEO, Tony Romando, explaining: “The polls show Hillary Clinton with a commanding lead, and a business decision was made to print the Clinton issue first while continuing to work on the Trump issue.”

The Post adds: “Newsweek would destroy the remaining Clinton copies if Donald Trump wins.”

Here’s Newsweek’s tweet, showing the two covers along with a “buck doesn’t stop here”-type disclaimer …



  1. Either way, its a good cover.

  2. AJ, the one on the right would be tragic!

  3. President Dewey would be proud!!!

  4. Regardless of who wins, the cover with the non-winner’s face on it will be worth big bucks in 50 years or so.
