Default Fake News

President Trump, sworn enemy of fake news, is also a purveyor of it: the Washington Post reports at least four of his golf resorts have phony Time magazine covers featuring the commander in chief.



The cover is dated March 1, 2009, the first day of the second season of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” the spinoff Trump hosted before he became president. There was no actual issue of Time with that date.

A spokeswoman for Time told the Post, “I can confirm that this is not a real Time cover.”

Trump, by all accounts, holds Time in high regard, and has repeatedly claimed to hold the record for most cover appearances. In reality, he has been the cover star 11 times, a fraction of former President Richard Nixon’s 55 covers. A collection on Time’s website of all Trump’s covers reveals he only landed a cover once before running for president, in January 1989.

Is there no end to the petty left wing attempts to shame us all?

Bunch of school age children are more adult than the left wing cry babies.

Time Asks Donald Trump To Remove Fake Cover From Business Properties

Time on Tuesday asked the Trump Organization to remove any fake covers of the magazine displayed at the presidential family’s business properties.

The magazine’s request to the group came after a Washington Post report revealed that several of President Donald Trump’s golf courses had a framed copy of a doctored Time cover, which featured the commander in chief as the cover story.

At the top of the fake cover, white text reads “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS... EVEN TV!” The cover also promotes a fake news article on Trump’s former show “The Apprentice” as a “television smash!”

A spokeswoman for Time confirmed with the Post that the cover that’s dated Mar. 1, 2009 is fake.

Of course, no one ask the OBVIOUS question...

"When were they put up?"...

To believe a PRESIDENT had them put up, or they were put up AFTER he became president, is pure lunacy...

To also believe that anyone would think, "Hey! This guy's president now...Maybe we should take those covers down!" is also pure lunacy...

Thirdly, and most importantly, THIS is what journalism has become...Staff writers for Yahoo resorting to "investigating" the artwork on the walls of a golf course...

Reminds me of CNN's breaking coverage on ice cream scoops...

Remember when right-wingers tried to attach the label "NARCISSIST" to Obama?

And here we are with their boy in office, and the more real and blatant narcissism is something that should be ignored.

I don't know about the snowflake persuasion on this, but I myself don't give two Allah's farts about those fake covers.

At this point nobody would expect the die hard Trump cultists to care. This is just one more thing to add to the pile. Trump was a con man in private life and he's an even bigger one now.

Your complaint would have some validity if Obama hadn't abruptly terminated his first negotiation with Republican Congressional leaders by declaring "I Won", if he hadn't arrogantly accepted the Nobel Peace prize while declaring he hadn't earned it in his acceptance speech, turned his back on his legal obligation to implement a Federal budget and the transportation trust fund, declared he would rule by pen and phone, and decreed amnesty for millions of illegal aliens because Congress failed to act.

Of course thousands of mental health professionals violating the ethics of their profession to declare Trump narcissistic is proof positive.

I don't suppose you could site references for these claims? Exactly who are these thousands of mental health professionals?

I would also like to see the listing of the "thousands" of aforementioned mental health professionals. I assume such a list exists, otherwise such a statement is sheer hyperbole and dishonest.
