Fake TIME magazine covers displayed at Donald Trump's golf club locations

President Donald Trump meets with Senate Republicans about healthcare in the East Room of the White House in Washington U.S

President Donald Trump meets with Senate Republicans about healthcare in the East Room of the White House in Washington U.S

The phrase was prominently displayed on Trump's Twitter Tuesday after three reporters resigned from CNN after having to retract a story on Russian Federation that they got wrong.

 

 

However, "The Apprentice is a television smash!" and "Trump is hitting on all fronts... even TV!" are (shockingly) not legit, as confirmed by TIME's then television critic James Poniewozik.

The Post reported there was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine - and no issue at all that year with Trump on the cover. The fake and real covers both feature three other stories on the cover, one about former President Barack Obama and health care costs, and one on the health of banks. The real cover, from 2007, had the headline "The Global Warming Survival Guide". One employee at a Scotland club did confirm, however, that the image was taken down from the spot in the club's bar where it had been featured just a few weeks prior to her interview.

Trump has been on the cover of Time magazine on numerous occasions throughout his political career, and has valued the placement on the cover as a badge of honor. The next appearance after that was August 31, 2015, and he has been on the cover 14 times. It was the eighth season for the show overall.
