Watch this incredible photo shoot of Donald Trump with a bald eagle from Time magazine

Donald Trump is the subject of Time magazine's newest cover. And, apparently, the cover story gave Trump the chance to pose with a bald eagle named Uncle Sam.

The actual cover, meanwhile, definitely captures the essence of Donald Trump:

Trump's official campaign motto is "Make America Great Again!" But if there were a vote for an unofficial motto, "Deal With It" would be a very strong contender. Every time the billionaire is confronted about something offensive he's said in the past — whether it's sexist or racist comments — he essentially tells people to deal with it.

For example, when Fox News's Megyn Kelly asked Trump if it was presidential to call women fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals, he responded, "I don't frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn't either." In other words, "Deal with it — I don't have time to watch what I say to make sure it doesn't offend people."

To a lot of people, Trump's comments are genuinely offensive. But it's also why a lot of other people support Trump: Many voters believe that Trump is a genuine person who isn't afraid to tell the truth, even when it might offend others. Of course, that doesn't diminish the fact that he really is offending others — and it might make him unelectable among certain groups of people, like women and Latinos.
