March 2009 Time cover of Trump is phony

It seems that way.

A few hours later, though, some curious news came out: The Post reported that the walls of no less than four of Trump's golf clubs play host to a framed cover of Time magazine featuring Trump.

Devoting thousands of words to its every inept detail, one of the sole joys that remains in the beleaguered Fourth Estate, the Post explains that the cover in question is purportedly from March 1, 2009, a day when no Time issue was published. The date coincides with the eighth season premiere of Trump's reality TV show, "Celebrity Apprentice".

At Trump's Virginia golf course, the fake Time cover reportedly hangs in the club's dining room where the Post reports that Trump dined in June with Peyton Manning and Sen.

The red border around the photograph is skinner than that of a real Time cover, and there is no white line between the red border and photograph. The next appearance after that was August 31, 2015, and he has been on the cover 14 times.

"The Trump cover's secondary headlines are stacked on the right side, on a real Time cover, they would go across the top".

The Washington Post investigated and reported Tuesday that Time had no magazine cover with that date, nor had the publication featured Trump on its cover at any time in 2009.

"I can confirm that this is not a real Time cover", Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc. told the Post, stating the obvious.

Trump has been known to lie about Time covers.

However, the fake cover is good for one thing - DJ lessons.

Time initially said it had no intention of asking the president to remove the fake covers, but later asked the businesses to take the covers down.

Seriously though, Trump loves to bash the media for producing so-called "fake news".

Obviously created by someone close to Trump, aside from the telltale discrepancies including a thinner border around the cover, the fake cover magazine uses exclamation points, because.

"We couldn't comment on the decor at Trump golf clubs one way or another".
