Fake Cover

Posted by Scott On June - 28 - 2017

news_green-125x125The Washington Post broke the story that a “Fake” Time Magazine cover, featuring Donald Trump, adorns the walls of a number of Trump golf clubs.  Time Magazine has requested that they be taken down. The cover is dated March 1, 2009.  Problem: 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.

It is not clear who created this fake Time cover — or why, according the Washington Post.  But what is clear is that the President likes covers of magazines, as long as they are flattering, even if they are fake.
