(Newser) – Donald Trump appears to have at least glanced at the Boston Globe's fake front page imagining a Trump presidency this time next year—and he is not pleased. "Did you see the story? The whole front page, they made up the story that Trump is the president and they made up the whole front page," he said during a campaign event Sunday night in Rochester, NY, per Politico. "It's a make-believe story, which is really no different than the whole paper." He called the Globe "stupid," adding, "It's worthless, it's sold for a dollar."

Trump slammed the Globe as "dishonest" and said he believes the paper has had a lot of backlash from the phony front page, which ran in the paper's "Ideas" section, reports the Hill. He didn't address the contents of the front page, which was dated April 9, 2017, and can be seen here. The stories ranged from realistic to whimsical, with the main headline announcing the beginning of mass deportations and a sidebar story announcing that the president's first romance novel, A Trumping to Remember, had been pulled after the publisher discovered it had been "cribbed from a May 1986 edi­tion of Penthouse." The Globe has Chris Christie as Trump's attorney general, Kid Rock as ambassador to Japan, and Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault as education secretary.
