Trump Made A Fake TIME Cover Of Himself And Hung It Up At His Golf Clubs

TIME: "That's not real."

Donald Trump is a man who despises “fake news.”

Wait, that’s not a very Trump-ish way to put it. Let me try again.

Donald Trump is a man who thinks the dishonest media is “trying to cover for a huge election loss by printing #FAKENEWS, but despite it all, covfefe. #MAGA.”

There we go. That’s a little more “presidential.”

Given how worried Trump is about the “fake news” phenomenon, one would think that the last thing he would do is hang up framed copies of a fake TIME magazine cover featuring himself in his clubs and resorts.

But that’s exactly what he’s done, because according to TIME spokeswoman Kerri Chyka “this is not a real TIME cover”:

And yet here it hangs:

Here’s WaPo:

The framed copy of Time Magazine was hung up in at least four of President Trump’s golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality-TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.

But that wasn’t true.

The Time cover is a fake.

There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover.

“So how did Trump — who spent an entire campaign and much of his presidency accusing the mainstream media of producing ‘fake news’ — wind up decorating his properties with a literal piece of phony journalism?” WaPo goes on to ask.

Well, no one really knows.

Asked to comment, this is what Sarah Huckabee Sanders came up with:

We couldn’t comment on the decor at Trump Golf clubs one way or another.

Covfefe.

    They should ask Trump’s PR guy, John Barron.
