Time magazine hanging in Trump golf clubs is fake


Offering a possible explanation for why Donald Trump believes the whole of media is just "fake news", The Washington Post reports that at least four of Trump's golf clubs have framed copies of Time Magazine with his face on the cover-all of them fake.

The fake cover - which is dated March 1, 2009 - features a photo of Trump along with the caption, "Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash". Trump's fake cover has a thinner red border and lacks the ring of white inside it.

Just previous year, Trump boasted about his Time magazine cover appearances.

That said, he also put it in the context of a broader pattern of Trump embellishing his own personal achievements.

Is the president who railed against "fake news" as recently as Tuesday decorating his clubs with phony magazine covers?

President Donald Trump has garnered a reputation for being somewhat misleading on the facts of his accomplishments-whether it be the size of his inauguration crowd or his Electoral College accomplishment.

The fake cover is placed twice at Trump National Doral near Miami, Fla., including the pro shop and sports bar. One employee said the fake cover had previously hung in the resort's pub, called "The Duel in the Sun" after a famous golf match played at Turnberry in 1977.

In Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, the framed cover hangs opposite a framed cover of Newsweek with the president's mug on it and over what appears to be a framed page from Variety.

The only problem is there was no March 1 2009 issue of Time and Trump wasn't on the cover at all in 2009.

Back in April, Trump was reportedly agitated when his chief strategist Steve Bannon landed a TIME cover. Former President Richard Nixon, for example, has appeared on Time's cover 55 times. The company has also asked the Trump Organization to remove the doctored covers from all locations where it is displayed.

In fact, it fits perfectly into Trump's entire career, personality, taste, and ever-more loosening grip on reality. "So you tell me, which is more important, real estate or politics, okay?"

David Fahrenthold, a reporter for WaPo and CNN contributor, tweeted an update.
