Trump Is In Trouble With 'Time' Magazine For Fake Cover Hung At His Clubs

By Aimee Lutkin

Though Donald Trump is literally one of the most powerful men in the world right now, he seemingly still feels the need to pump up his own importance. The Washington Post uncovered a truly astounding example of this man's bottomless narcissism with an exposé on a fake cover of Time magazine which was apparently hung at various clubs he owns. It's truly hilarious:

The fake cover is dated March 1, 2009, which coincided with the season debut of Trump's show, The Celebrity Apprentice. But there was no Time issue coinciding with that date, and the closest one was a cover featuring Kate Winslet. There are also a number of errors in the layout for the cover, including the phrases “Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” and “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!” 

Time does not use exclamation points on their covers. The red border is too skinny, and is missing an inner white line separating the red from the main image. Finally, the secondary headlines are stacked on the right instead of going along the top, as they would on a real cover.
