Over the Thanksgiving weekend, President Donald Trump, a man who has had a decade’s long obsession with being named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” – and with making the cover of any major magazine, for that matter – claimed Time called to tell him he was “probably” going to be given the prestigious distinction.

“Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ‘Man (Person) of the Year,’ like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!” Trump wrote.

Of course, Time has never operated in that manner, meaning they don’t let the prospective recipient of the award know they are being considered or won the award in advance, and let the world know on their own Twitter account that Trump told a bold-faced lie.

Afterwards, a cadre of celebrities began trolling Trump on Twitter to some hilarious results.

British tennis champion Andy Murray seemingly started the trend of mocking the president by tweeting, “Bbc just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named sports personality of the year but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”

Other celebrities joined in on the fun, making a fool of the attention-starved Trump. Take a look at a sampling:
