 The Boston Globe is publishing a mock front page Sunday featuring bleak and satirical headlines it predicts will accompany a Donald Trump presidency.



The bogus front page – accompanied by a "Stop Trump" editorial – will lead the newspaper's Sunday Ideas section and "is a work of political satire and commentary produced by the Globe's Editorial Board, not the newsroom," the Globe's editorial page editor, Ellen Clegg, tells Politico in an email.

A PDF of the front page was published Saturday.

The mock page is dated Sunday, April 9, 2017, and its banner headline blares "Deportations to Begin," with a main story including mentions of Attorney General Chris Christie and Fox News' Megyn Kelly tweeting from a bar because she's been placed on a White House black list.

Another front page article reports that "U.S. soldiers refuse orders to kill ISIS families," while a separate story focuses on libel laws targeting the "absolute scum" in the press. Another story fake-reports how Trump offends China's first lady by naming his new dog after her.

An editor’s note at the bottom of the page explains why the paper chose to create it.

"This is Donald Trump’s America," the note states. "What you read on this page is what might happen if the GOP front-runner can put his ideas into practice, his words into action. Many Americans might find this vision appealing, but the Globe’s editorial board finds it deeply troubling."

An editorial on the following page urges the GOP to stop Trump.

In a post on the Globe's Facebook page, deputy managing editor of the editorial page `Kathleen Kingsbury says in a video: "This was an exercise at taking Donald Trump at his word."
