Time wants Trump to take down this fake magazine cover

Time Magazine has asked several Trump Organization golf clubs to take down copies of a fake 2009 issue that features President Donald Trump on the cover.

The Washington Post broke the odd story this week, pointing out that a Time cover framed and hanging in several of Trump’s golf clubs was not actually real. The fake magazine was reportedly displayed in at least five clubs, including Mar-a-Lago.

Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere commented on the story on Wednesday’s “Pat & Stu.”

“That’s embarrassing,” Pat said.

The fake cover, which is marked with a March 1, 2009 publication date, has been placed side by side with a real issue from the next day that featured actress Kate Winslet. There was no March 1 issue published in 2009.

The Trump cover features real headlines visible on the issue with Winslet, one about then-President Barack Obama trying to curb health care costs and one asking, “How Stressed Is Your Bank? A Checkup.” The main headline reads, “Donald Trump: ‘The Apprentice’ is a television smash!”

In real life, Trump has indeed been on Time magazine – he was 2016’s person of the year.
