Time magazine have told Trump to take his terribly Photoshopped fake cover down

If there’s one thing that Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, hates, it’s fake news.

Yes, he really hates all those places, staffed by experienced, fair, lifelong journalists who have the temerity to report actual facts and comment on things that he’s said and done following sober analysis and source checking, because they are FAKE NEWS. On the other hand, those fine people at Fox News and Breitbart, who never make anything up, they’re A-OK.

Of course, haha, we’re JOKING HERE GUYS. Because calling everything else ‘fake news’ is a classic way to confuse everyone and distract from the fact that virtually everything he ever says is fake news itself; one big fat lie after another, something that could be seen in quite stunning detail only this weekend:

But, really, he’s outdone himself this time, as it was reported by the Washington Post that a framed Time cover featuring Trump and the headline “Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!”, that had been seen hanging at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, was a complete fake.

What’s funniest of all is how badly the Photoshop job has been done.

According to reports, the cover, dated 1 March 2009 was also on display at four other golf clubs owned by Trump.

Now a spokeswoman for Time, Kerri Chyka, has confirmed that the cover has never run in the magazine in any format. The real edition that month in fact featured actor Kate Winslet.

“I can confirm that this is not a real Time cover,” Kerri Chyka wrote to the Post. They also reported that Time had now asked the Trump organisation to remove the covers from display.

What’s even more pathetic about it is that Trump has actually appeared on the cover – once before entering politics, back in January 1989, when he was known as a New York businessman.

Since entering politics, he has appeared on 13 different Time covers – including the one which he is brandishing in the picture at the top of this article, which ran on 18 Jan 2016 after he won the primary to become the Republican candidate for President.

Opponents were quick to mock the President.

Still, if he wants to replace his fake cover with a real one, maybe he should go for this, more accurate one?
