March 2009 Time cover of Trump is phony

This comes in response to a report by the Washington Post's David Fahrenthold highlighting the framed copies of fake Trump covers that have been featured at Trump's businesses.

But the magazine's issue that month was published on March 2, 2009, its cover featuring Kate Winslet, who'd just won an Academy Award for her role in The Reader; there was no other Trump-themed cover that month. However, his show, The Celebrity Apprentice, did premiere on March 1, 2009.

A Time Magazine with Trump on the cover hangs in his golf clubs.

A reporter visiting one of Trump's properties recently saw the cover and noticed several discrepancies from normal TIME covers.

For starters, its red border is skinnier than that of a normal Time cover.

For a president who spends much of his time shouting about "fake news" - he has tweeted about "fake news" 37 times and tweeted the phrase "witch hunt" 11 times so far this year - it seems an embarrassing lapse of judgment.

Syrian Observatory: dozens killed in air strike in Islamic State-held town

Mike D'Antoni named NBA Coach of the Year
Other finalists this year were Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs and Erik Spoelstra from the Miami Heat. All three players gave strong contributions to their respective teams, but only one could win the NBA MVP.

North Korea denies torturing American detainee Otto Warmbier
But he was arrested in Pyongyang in January 2016 and, as we have reported , was accused of trying to steal a propaganda poster. Security Council resolutions and push for dialogue and negotiation, which has always been China's position on the issue.

Anyway, as depressing as this story is, it provides the glimmer of hope that this whole thing could be over right now if someone just awards Trump a "History's Greatest President" certificate so he can go home. Former President Richard Nixon actually holds that title, appearing on the cover 55 times.

"@time first told me they hadn't asked @realDonaldTrump to take fake covers down".

Here's the problem: The Time cover is a fake. In the sort of sloppy incompetence we've come to expect from Trump's administration, even this fake cover gets all the basics wrong, including the magazine's typeface, borders, and cover line placements.

"We couldn't comment on the decor at Trump Golf clubs one way or another", Sanders wrote in an email. I don't think that's a record, Mike, that can ever be broken.

Farenthold checked with the real Time magazine. Trump said. "I have six for politics and I have two for real estate or whatever they put me on for". That was in January 1989.

The Magazine also confirmed they had asked the Trump organisation to remove the cover from display. He has been at the Post since 2000, and previously covered Congress, the federal bureaucracy, the environment, and the D.C. police.
