WATCH: Was TIME Taunting Trump With This New Bald Eagle Video?
TIME magazine has just released a video of Donald Trump getting spooked by Uncle Sam.
That would be the bald eagle that appeared to commandeer a particular scene in the GOP presidential candidate’s photoshoot, done earlier this year in his office.
Steve Doocy asked Trump on “Fox and Friends” this morning whether he'd been frightened by the bird.
“No, not really,” he answered.
Some are now wondering whether the magazine is taunting the real estate mogul, who yesterday was passed over for its annual "Person of the Year" distinction by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
TIME had earlier this week named Trump as a runner-up.
When the announcement was made yesterday, the Republican candidate took to Twitter.
I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked person who is ruining Germany

Now, TIME may have implicitly responded by unveiling the never-before-seen outtake, The Hill reports.
Watch the photoshoot above.
