Trump Calls For “Fake News” Contest After Making Fake TIME Magazine Covers Of Himself

The man who once made fake TIME Magazine covers of himself and proudly had them on display in his golf clubs has the stones to call for a “Fake News” contest.

Donald Trump tweeted this morning, “We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”
