Ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump literally has “fake news” hanging on the walls of his golf clubs. The Washington Post discovered at least four Trump-owned properties feature a framed “Time Magazine” cover featuring The Donald. The problem? They are completely phony:

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.

Watch this video and see David Farenthold of the Washington Post break down the patently fake cover and how it might have gotten there to begin with!

LOL! Wait, here he is on the cover of ESPN The Magazine! He’s the greatest tennis player of all time!

Perfect. Time Magazine has asked the Trump organization to remove the phony magazines.
