We know it, you know it and even he knows it.
He is not a self made man, he is not a billionaire and has suffered 6 bankruptcies, gone bust owning casinos, peddling fake universities, airlines, football teams, vodka, steaks, and even WATER!
Trump has however been overwhelmingly successful in contracting a serious case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
This creates quite a quandary if you insist on bragging about things you haven't accomplished.
That's what makes the discovery of Trump's latest lie kind of sad.... It's just so petty and amateurish.
Kinda' like him.
As it turns out Trump has Time magazine covers bearing his image on the front cover framed and hanging in no less than five of his golf courses.
The thing is... They're all fake.
It's not like he hadn't been on the cover of Time before. But I guess those weren't up to his standards and he needed to control exactly how he wanted to be protrayed?
In any event The Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold, who reported about the fake cover, says the courses have the fake Time cover of Trump, which is dated March 1, 2009, framed and displayed prominently on their walls.
It features a photo of Trump along with the caption...
“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash.”
Above the magazine’s name, In all caps of course, is another caption that reads...
“TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”
Here is the cover...
The forgery was discovered due to small inaccuracies such a red border that is skinnier than that of a genuine Time cover and secondary headlines that are are stacked on the right side. The one telling give-a-way though was that on March 1, 2009.... TIME DIDN'T PUBLISH AN ISSUE!
Is this the worst offense Trump has ever committed? Not even close. But it is a peek into his petty and small-minded need for control and admiration at all times. It is a view into Trump as an embarrassing and ridiculous figure that is now being transferred onto the country causing America to be viewed as embarrassing and ridiculous on the world stage.
To date Trump has been on Time’s cover 14 times, President Obama has 22 covers and the all time record holder is none other than President Richard Nixon at 55 times!
Since the discovery TIME magazine has asked Trump to remove the phony magazine covers from his establishments walls.
