FACT CHECK: No, Time Magazine Didn’t Compare Justin Trudeau To Hitler
A post shared on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, claims to show a Time Magazine cover comparing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
Am I supposed to be shocked that the same party who forced experimental injections on the population and created a two tier society for the “clean” and the “dirty” invited a SS Nazi and gave him a standing ovation? #TrudeauCrimeMinister #TrudeauGottaGO #WEF #TrudeauLiberals pic.twitter.com/JcpJz3wUg3

Time Magazine never created any such cover.
Canada’s House of Commons speaker resigned after controversy erupted over the invitation of a Canadian-Ukrainian WWII veteran who fought in a Nazi unit, according to The Associated Press.
Social media users have been sharing an image of a purported Time Magazine cover showing Trudeau as Hitler. One social media post reads, “Am I supposed to be shocked that the same party who forced experimental injections on the population and created a two tier society for the “clean” and the “dirty” invited a SS Nazi and gave him a standing ovation?”
Time Magazine, however, never created any such cover. It does not appear in the magazine’s online “vault” of covers for the 2022 or 2023 calendar year. A wider internet search also did not yield any results for the alleged cover.
A Time spokesperson confirmed to Check Your Fact in an email that the “image is not an authentic TIME cover
In a previous fact-check, Check Your Fact traced the fabricated cover to graphic designer Patrick Mulder, who admitted to creating it. Mulder said in a Feb. 27 tweet it was the “second edition of a rework.”
