"EVEN TV!" is another headline on the cover hanging on the walls of some Trump courses in the US, Ireland and Scotland. In the sort of sloppy incompetence we've come to expect from Trump's administration, even this fake cover gets all the basics wrong, including the magazine's typeface, borders, and cover line placements.

The cover is dated March 1st 2009 and features a picture of Trump with the headline: "Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!" The actual cover featured actress Kate Winslet, however.

In a Wednesday article titled, "How To Spot a Fake TIME Cover", D.W. Pine, TIME's creative director who has designed more than 400 covers, elaborated on some of the key flaws in the design of the fake cover, including, the logo being too large and placed too high.

Time Inc. spokeswoman Kerri Chyka confirmed to the Post that "this is not a real Time cover".

The fake bar code on the bottom right of the cover is identical to the bar code shown in an online graphic design tutorial which shows how to create a fake Time cover.

DUP source says talks with Tories 'not proceeding as expected'
TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR paid his first visit to No. 10 Downing Street today, for talks with UK Prime Minister Theresa May . Any deal to salvage powersharing at Stormont should involve Northern Ireland's five main parties, Simon Coveney has said.

It was also spotted at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate Trump often visits when he's not at the White House.

Arms crossed, Donald Trump stares out proudly from under the iconic, red TIME masthead while an all-capped headline blares: "TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS". That fight, like the Trump Time cover, never actually happened.

Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold is continuing to pursue the fake Times Magazine cover trail and he has uncovered a total of eight clubs where the framed fake cover is or was hanging. He has appeared on the cover 13 times since his entry to politics. It is now unclear wheather Trump knows this cover is a fake. The Magazine has reportedly since asked the Trump Organization to remove the phony cover from the walls where it is on display.

While many pointed out that Trump has, ironically, spent most of his presidency accusing the mainstream media of churning out "fake news", others chose to respond with a slew of mocking memes, jokes and comments. Remarkably, Trump managed to say something untrue in public every day for the first 40 days of his presidency, according to The New York Times.

Maybe Trump will bristle at removing the fraudulent covers thanks to the meticulously researched Obama birther story that (probably) graces page 56 in the faux magazine.
