Fake TIME Magazine Covers Hang at Trump Golf Courses
This is What's Trending Today.
Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold followed Donald Trump throughout the 2016 presidential election campaign.
He wrote about then-candidate Trump's promises to give money to charity. He reported that Trump's own organization donated very little money over the years.
He also reported on an old recording in which Trump is heard talking about touching women without their permission.
Fahrenthold won a Pulitzer Prize this year for his reporting on Trump. The yearly prize honors journalists who do great work.
This week, Fahrenthold reported on another Trump-related issue for the Post. He wrote about a framed TIME magazine cover that hangs on the walls at some of Trump's golf courses in the United States, Ireland and Scotland. The cover features a photo of Donald Trump himself. It is dated March 1, 2009. The cover says Trump's television show, "The Apprentice," is a big success.
But, there is one problem. TIME was not published on that date.
The real TIME magazine cover closest to that date came out on March 2, 2009. It has a picture of British actress Kate Winslet.
Traditionally, TIME magazine covers have a red border with a thin white line surrounding the cover photo.
The version hanging at Trump's golf courses is different.
Staff members who work for the president at the White House and those who run the golf courses did not respond to the Washington Post's questions about the fake magazine cover.
TIME said it has asked Trump's business, known as the Trump Organization, to take down the fake magazine covers.
TIME named Trump its 2016 Person of the Year. He was on the magazine's cover at the end of last year.
Many people on social media reacted to the story. They used photo-editing software and made their own versions of magazine covers featuring themselves -- and even their cats. One politician made up his own TIME cover.
Some also remembered a scene from the 1998 movie, "The Big Lebowski." In the film, the main character looks into a mirror that looks like a TIME magazine cover.
Trump tweeted about the Washington Post's story on Wednesday, calling the newspaper "fake news."
And that's What's Trending Today.

2016年总统竞选期间，《华盛顿邮报》的记者大卫·法伦胡德（David Fahrenthold）一直跟踪报道特朗普 。
他写到，时任候选人的特朗普曾承诺为慈善机构捐赠 。然而，多年来特朗普集团的捐款少之又少 。
法伦胡德凭借该报道获得了今年的普利策奖 。这一年度奖项是为了表彰那些有杰出贡献的记者 。
本周，《华盛顿邮报》的法伦胡德又报道了一篇与特朗普有关的新闻 。报道指出，特朗普位于美国、爱尔兰和苏格兰的高尔夫球场内分别悬挂着《时代》杂志的封面 。封面的主角正是特朗普本人，封面照片的时间为2009年3月1日 。封面标题写着：特朗普：《学徒》是一档成功的节目 。
不过，局面尴尬了 。当天《时代》并未出版杂志 。
距离当天最近的一次《时代》杂志封面日期为2009年3月2日，不过封面人物为英国女演员凯特·温斯莱特（Kate Winslet） 。
特朗普当选《时代周刊》2016年度人物 。去年年底，他登上该杂志的封面 。
很多网友在社交媒体上对这一新闻发表看法 。他们利用照片编辑软件将自己甚至宠物猫设计成杂志封面的主角 。还有政客也为自己设计了一款《时代》杂志封面 。
甚至有网友想起了1998年电影《谋杀绿脚趾》中的场景 。影片中有主角看着一面类似《时代》杂志封面的镜子的一幕 。
