President Donald Trump loves to rail against the “fake news” media and everything it stands for. But, as it turns out, the president’s been caught in his own web of alternative facts – he’s been hanging a fake Time magazine cover with his own face all over his golf clubs. Though Time magazine has since asked the Trump Organization to take down the faux issue, it didn’t stop the internet from flooding Trump with more fake covers for him to use.
Some covers are straight up parodies of the news.

Some are using their fake covers to make a point about the president’s behavior.

Congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia’s 11th district even made fun of the president.
Wow, my first cover of Time. Asked my staff to frame this and hang it in all four of my offices. @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/Hx57ZJExR8 pic.twitter.com/y1HciTB5G1

Trump has only appeared on the cover Time twice; in the 1989 issue and as part of the magazine’s 2016 Person of the Year issue in 2016.
