President Donald Trump, a man who constantly dogs the media for "fake news," has a literal piece of fake journalism hanging in at least five of his resorts, including Mar-a-Lago.

The cover, which reads "“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” and “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!” is a poorly photoshopped version of a March 2 2009, Kate Winslet cover, reports the Washington Post.

According to a 2016 photo from Tampa Bay Times photographer Scott Keeler, the fake cover hangs near the entrance of Mar-a-Lago.

While it's unclear who made these fake news covers, or even why, what is clear is that the barcode on Trump's fake cover is for karaoke DJ software and it was used in a graphic design tutorial from 2010 on how to make a fake Time cover.

This is a good times to remember back to January, when Trump bragged to the CIA about how many times he was on the cover of Time.I think we have the all-time record in the history of Time magazine.”

Ha, sure.
