So Donald Trump has fake Time magazine covers with his face on them all over this golf clubs. Why am I not surprised by this?

Courtesy of WaPo: 

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. 

In fact, the cover on display at Trump’s clubs, observed recently by a reporter visiting one of the properties, contains several small but telling mistakes. Its red border is skinnier than that of a genuine Time cover, and, unlike the real thing, there is no thin white border next to the red. The Trump cover’s secondary headlines are stacked on the right side — on a real Time cover, they would go across the top. 

And it has two exclamation points. Time headlines don’t yell.

Yeah only Donald Trump gets two exclamation points worth of excited about Donald Trump.

Time Magazine is now demanding that Trump have the phony covers removed, while everybody associated with the clubs or the Administration acts like they have no idea how such a thing ever happened:  

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. 

“We couldn’t comment on the decor at Trump Golf clubs one way or another,” Sanders wrote in an email.

Yeah, who's in charge of the decor at Trump's golf course anyway?

Surely THAT is the person who the press should be focusing on.

Unless they are assuming that Donald Trump is such an insufferable megalomaniac that he ordered the fake covers made up just to give the impression that he was more important than he actually was in reality.

That would mean he was somehow unhinged.

And NOBODY is saying that, right?


P.S. By the way.
And NONE of those is a phony.

    I worked at Time.
    No editor would put a clunky subhead on the cover, or anywhere in the magazine, that said "The 'Apprentice' is a television smash!"

    First of all, it's "The Apprentice," not The "Apprentice."
    Secondly, no one, no one, would write, "smash."

    It's an obviously amateur job, to anyone who's worked in publishing or journalism., which neither Trump nor the people who pay thousands of dollars for the "privilege" of belonging to his golf clubs clearly are not.

    All they see is the Time logo and his flabby face. He's stolen the Time trademark for his own financial gain -- they could sue.

      To me, the REALLY telling aspect of this is that Trump HAS been on the cover of Time. So why make up a fake one? It shows that Trump doesn't care about truth or reality at all. How unhinged does one have to be to make up a lie when the truth was just as good?

      I think TIME should sue him too! Contact TIME and suggest they do so everyone...might help move them in that direction.

      Trump has always gotten away with everything and it's time that fact be stopped dead in his tracks! He's a joke to our country and world and a horrible one!

    Besides being a titanically narcissistic asshole sex predator, I have read some articles by mental health professionals that call Trump a "malignant sociopath"

    Donald Trump is about the worst possible person I can think of who should be PResident , outside of someone like Ted Cruz or Mike Pence, because they are militant Christian Dominionists.

    I feel nauseated for America as we disconnect from this trump issue. The guy is a 12 yr old bully. He acquired enough money to order someone to make him great. Unfortunately he is not great and everyone knows it. He will never be ready to be president of the united states of America.

    Trumplethinskin is desperately yearning for ego-stroking and is scraping the bottom of the barrel, and LYING and FAKING to do it. Great that they called him out on this. Not that his brainwashed cultists will wake up and listen to the truth.

    The "fake" Time cover photo smacks of dictatorship to me so I'm not at all surprised, just a bit worried about the photos schools will be forced to put in their classrooms of the scowling person currently residing in the White House.

      Trump leadership style IS 'DICtatorship" which we witness daily! The Republican party in Congress needs to finally gain some balls and begin impeachment charges against Trump because he has committed treason!

    Maybe he could replace those Time posters with authentic photos of First "Lady" Maleria, NUDE.?

  7. I'm not sure what's more twisted: this, or Ben Carson's portrait - hanging in his own home - of himself and Christ looking like a couple of steamroom buddies.

    In the Trump FAKE cover, where are the triple chins and the Cheeto skin color and the Racoon white circles around his eyes? Not to mention the comb-over baby chick "hair"? Effing goof ball!

    Damn, how different things would be if President Hillary Clinton were currently in the White House. She is so superior to The Donald, potus, in every way. I voted for her and don't regret having done so....remember - she won the majority of America's votes...NOT The Donald!

      Hillary is not perfect. however, she has the brains, the education, the experince, the sheer ability NOT to be a bullshit artist. Trump is one the most worthless piece of crap anyway you look at him. but you know he is 'like, you know, a smart person". can he even read? my cat is smarter than him, you know, housebroken. my cat gives little dead things ever summer day. can trump swat a flie?

  10. Wouldn't those fake covers constitute copyright and trademark violations? I'd like TIME to smack the Trump organization upside the head by not only having them removed but also have the pay TIME a hefty fine. A "fake news" fine.

    While I'm sure Trump directed some lackey to have the covers created and displayed he didn't do the ordering. Now, was that HUD assistant to Ben Carson who used to be a wedding planner also an interior decorator? Could she be the one that actually ordered the covers manufactured and displayed?

    She LOST
    Donald Trump IS President.
    I don't think he cares. Instead he thinks, winning!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
