Time's New Cover Gives Hillary Clinton's Silhouette Horns

Time magazine decided to tweak the most devoted Hillary Clinton fans again (remember the "provocative" high heel cover?), but this time it looks like they're playing Satanic games with the Democratic frontrunner:

Time knows very well what they're doing when the juxtapose people under their iconic M. In 2013, they posted a piece titled "33 Time Magazine Covers That Appeared To Give People Horns."

But it's probably a little more outrageous when it's a Pope -- or it's a political figure cast in the shadows, like Hillary in this case. This isn't the first time they've done this to Hillary, as they note from 2009:

The David Von Drehle cover story explained the Clintons live by their own rules:

As a rule, a candidate wants to take flight on outstretched wings of hope, not scramble in the dirt on the crabbed limbs of legal compliance. Every day spent saying “Trust me, my lawyer’s O.K. with it” is a bad day–and worse if she appears to be reading from lawyer-vetted notes.

As a rule, these would be dire, perhaps fatal, markers of a campaign crashing on takeoff. But in this case the politician was Hillary Clinton...The Clintons play by their own set of rules. And in this case, the former Secretary of State explained, those rules bless her decision to erase some 30,000 emails from the family server despite knowing that the emails had become a subject of intense interest to congressional investigators.
