The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least five of President Trump’s 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.
Well, this is straight out of North Korea. Kim Jong Un for sure forces families to hang up a framed photo of him on a Time magazine cover. Absolutely insane move to have sooo many copies of a fake Time magazine, all of which are framed and hanging in hopes of being admired by strangers.
Actually, there’s no way that Donald Trump knew that these magazines were fake. No one told him that they were photoshopped. Trump is definitely surrounded by yes men who made him a cover and didn’t tell him it was fake.
Glad we have a president who is dumb enough to think that there were two March 2009 Time covers and the one that he’s on looks nothing like the regular magazine. That’s my president.
