March 2009 Time cover of Trump is phony

Trump has fake TIME magazine covers of himself hanging in his golf clubs

In the Washington Post report, Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc., confirms in an email that "this is not a real TIME cover".

There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine.

The only problem is there was no March 1 2009 issue of Time and Trump wasn't on the cover at all in 2009. For one, the red border on the Trump cover was thinner than a normal TIME cover, and it lacks the thin white line that the magazine usually features.

The fake cover shot of Trump is accompanied by the all-caps headline: "TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS".

Fake Time magazine cover.

How the cover came to be displayed in Trump's clubs in Florida, Virginia, Ireland and Scotland also remains a mystery - especially since the real estate mogul and reality star could have easily displayed an authentic Time cover from January 16, 1989.

Still, the covers do make for some consistency across Trump's properties; they fit right in with the photos of himself from various news sources reportedly covering his office at Trump Tower.

Is the president who railed against "fake news" as recently as Tuesday decorating his clubs with phony magazine covers? Trump has been on 14 of the publication's covers in total over the past few decades, a hefty number to be sure, but apparently not enough because he had to commission one, too.

In this case, however, the item of interest isn't even a piece of artwork, or even an authentic bit of self-promotion ― rather, it appears to be an out-and-out hoax, a mock-up of a TIME cover that never actually existed. However, they're arranged in a way that's not consistent with Time's cover design. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to comment to the Post on whether or not the President Trump knew the cover was a fake.

In another tweet, he wrote: 'So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC? I don't think that's a record, Mike, that can ever be broken.

That is wrong. Richard Nixon has appeared on far more than Trump.

Farenthold checked with the real Time magazine.

But that count was wrong. He has been at the Post since 2000, and previously covered Congress, the federal bureaucracy, the environment, and the D.C. police.
