President Donald Trump has several fake Time magazine covers hanging in his clubs.
The Washington Post’s Dave Farenthold, who has covered the of the presidency’s effects on Trump’s businesses, reported on Tuesday that four of the presidents resorts and clubs have framed Time magazine portraits hanging in them, complete with fake headlines teasing articles like “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”
Time said it had no intention of asking the president to remove the fake covers.
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 honour. He has kept stacks of magazines with his image on the cover on his desk in New York for years, and continued the habit at the White House.
“Look at that picture of me on Time,” Trump told a reporter in his office last year. “It’s a movement! Isn’t that an amazing picture? It’s been a lot of fun.”
New & weird: at some @realdonaldtrump golf clubs, there’s a framed copy of Time mag, w/Trump on cover.
Amazing: Appears that the barcode on @realDonaldTrump‘s phony Time cover is actually barcode for software that lets you be a karaoke DJ. https://t.co/xEeLq6soaZ
