Trump’s embrace of ‘fake news’ takes an embarrassing turn
"Donald Trump boasted a few months ago that “nobody” has been on the cover of Time magazine more than him. He made a similar claim, for reasons that still aren’t clear, at CIA headquarters two months earlier. The assertion isn’t even close to being true – Richard Nixon holds the record – but the president just keeps repeating it anyway. It’s possible, however, that Trump actually believes he set the record because he counts fictional Time magazine covers that feature his face."
