This week, U.S. President Donald Trump was called out for being the definition of #FakeNews. 

The Washington Post revealed that the Time magazine cover with Trump's face, dated March 1, 2009 - and which can be seen hanging on several walls inside his golf courses - is actually fake.  

The framed image was hung up in at least five of Trump's golf clubs. But, after seeing one of the frames in person, The Washington Post was able to confirm the news. 

The framed cover "has two exclamation points. Time headlines don’t yell," writes David A. Fahrenthold. 

For a long time, people believed it was real because to be fair, it does look pretty legit (thanks to Photoshop).

But the lies soon caught up. 

Funny enough, it seems as though Trump got the idea from non-other than Saudi Arabia's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal

Alwaleed's staff creates magazine covers of his media mentions rather than sending a press release, according to Forbes. 

A representative of Prince Alwaleed shared the various 'fake magazine covers' with Forbes who compiled a list of all the times he had his staff make a magazine cover look legit. 

And unlike Trump, Alwaleed doesn't have these 'fake magazine covers' boxed in frames on walls of business he's got a stake in. 

Trump's inspiration was most definitely drawn from this one ... though it's not the only one

Time magazine did, in fact, name the Saudi prince as one of the Most Influential People in the World in 2008. However, his face did not make it to the cover of the magazine. 

How far did Alwaleed go? Record-breaking far ...

Of course Trump would get inspired from bin Talal ... he is his 'financial savior' after all

In 2016, in the midst of a dispute with right-wing American news channel FOX News, Trump tweeted a photoshopped image stating that Prince Alwaleed co-owns the channel. 

At the time, Prince Alwaleed did not let it slide, but instead came with a major clap back. 

The Saudi prince reminded Trump - in a tweet - that he had financially bailed him out, at least twice.  

In 1991, Prince Alwaleed bought Trump's yacht, which had been turned over to creditors while the billionaire was $900 million in debt.

In 1995, Prince Alwaleed was part of the group that bought the Plaza Hotel in New York City, also paying off Trump's debt on the hotel. The New York Times referred to this, at the time, as "a defeat for the real estate developer."
