March 2009 Time cover of Trump is phony

  • President Trump has a framed TIME Magazine cover of himself decorating at least 4 of his golf clubs — there’s just one problem

After all, with a headline as congratulatory as, "DONALD TRUMP: "The Apprentice" is a television smash!" anyone would proudly hang that where customers and clients alike could see the kudos given by such a venerated news source.

There was no Time issue released on that date. Also cluing you in that it's a fake: the red border is skinnier than the standard cover, with no secondary white border; the secondary headlines appear on the side instead of on top; the subheds, some of them borrowed from an actual March 2, 2009 cover with Kate Winslet, contain uncharacteristic exclamation points. "I can confirm that this is not a real TIME cover", Time Inc. representative Kerri Chyka told the Post.

"So a reporter for Time magazine - and I have been on there cover, like, 14 or 15 times", Mr Trump said.

As the Washington Post noted, Trump may be under the impression the fake cover is real.

The businessman has claimed he had appeared on the cover of Time twice before he launched his political career. There was no March 1, 2009 issue of TIME.

Gerry Connolly, who is a democrat from Virginia's 11th congressional district, ridiculed the cover online. However, they're arranged in a way that's not consistent with Time's cover design.

All-NBA Defensive First Team Announced
The Spurs ' Kawhi Leonard and coach Gregg Popovich are finalists for a total of three awards at tonight's inaugural NBA Awards. The All-NBA Defensive teams were leaked ahead of the awards show on Monday, and Wall found himself on the outside looking in.


The Trump Organization, and various employees of the golf clubs that feature a framed copy of the image, did not explain who created the fake cover or why.

The fake cover is also at Trump International Golf Links in Scotland.

Another one was reportedly displayed at Trump's resort in Ireland, but was recently moved from a restaurant area to a manager's office.

Curiously, the barcode displayed on Trump's fake magazine cover leads to karaoke software that lets users "DJ, VJ, and even sing karaoke".

During a recent press event at Trump National to promote the upcoming U.S. Women's Open, members of the media were encouraged to walk around the clubhouse and given golf carts to tour the grounds.

In Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, the framed cover hangs opposite a framed cover of Newsweek with the president's mug on it and over what appears to be a framed page from Variety. Trump said. "I have six for politics and I have two for real estate or whatever they put me on for".
