Did Time Magazine publish a cover calling Donald Trump the worst president ever and saying he has "disgraced the highest office in the nation"? No, that's not true: A meme making the claim features a fake cover image.
The claim appeared in a post shared on September 18, 2020 by a Facebook page named "CAKE" (archived here) with following text "Unfair portrayal? Explain why or why not." The image featured a photo of President Trump with the skin on the left side of his face missing. The words on the fake cover read:
WORST. PRESIDENT. EVER.
How DONALD TRUMP has disgraced the highest office in the nation.
This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:

The attempt to fake a Time cover is weak. It has no date or usual markings of a real cover.
