Fake News!

Time magazine has asked the Trump Organization to remove a framed front cover featuring Donald Trump from several of its golf clubs after it was proven to be fake.

The cover, showing a presidential Mr Trump with his arms folded and steely-eyed, was framed and hanged on the walls of at least four Trump courses in the US, Ireland and Scotland.

A framed, fake cover of Time Magazine featuring President Donald Trump has been prominently hung and displayed in at least four of Trump's golf clubs. The former reality TV host has claimed in the past that he had appeared on the cover of Time twice before launching his political career, though he had only appeared once prior to his presidential run.


A [Washington Post] reporter who viewed the image in one of the clubs noted that the red border was skinnier than a typical Time cover and the placement of the secondary headlines is incorrect – not to mention the presence of exclamation points in cover lines, which the historic magazine does not do.

The Trump Organization did not respond to questions this week about who made the cover and why it was displayed at Trump clubs. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to say whether Trump had known that the cover wasn’t real.

What?! He wouldn't know if he'd been interviewed and covered by Time in 2009? Rather stupid question. It's minimally possible he didn't know the pictures exist, but if he knew about them, then he knew they were fake.
In addition, the fake cover was hung up near the entrance of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., according to a photo taken in July 2016 by Scott Keeler, a photographer at the Tampa Bay Times.
At the "Winter White House"? Oh, he knew.
In Virginia, the phony Time cover hangs on the wall of the members’ dining room at the Trump golf course in suburban Loudoun County, near Washington. Trump has visited that club more frequently since moving into the White House. In early June, the president ate lunch in that dining room with football star Peyton Manning and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).
He knew.
A photo taken during their lunch shows that Trump’s chair faced the fake Time cover.
Ha. He knew.
At the same club, Trump’s staff put up a historical marker declaring that there had been a Civil War battle on the site — and that the adjacent Potomac River became a “River of Blood.” Historians say this battle never happened. The marker was first reported by the New York Times.
Fake. Fake. Fake. Trump himself is a fake.

He'll notice this little finding. It's even reported on Breitbart.

And...here's the only Time cover (January 1989) with Trump before his presidency:

That's why they made the fake one.  This one's not so flattering.  "Flaunting it."

...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
