The September 21, 2020 issue of Mike Bloomberg’s Bloomberg Businessweek shows Zuckerberg MAD Magazine-style in President Donald Trump’s iconic red hat, grinning, along with the caption, “What, Me Partisan? How a 100% totally super-neutral social platform friended Trump.”

Bloomberg‘s cover article, titled, “Facebook Needs Trump Even More Than Trump Needs Facebook,” documents Facebook employees alleged concerns over “Facebook’s proximity to the Right” and Zuckerberg’s relationship with the president — who he secretly met for dinner at the White House last year.

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg gets the Alfred E.
