“Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!“
Just a few hours later, the magazine tweeted that wasn’t the case at all,
“The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.“
Trump WAS Person of the Year for 2016, which he called a “tremendous honor” at the time but the title isn’t necessarily a mark of praise, but rather an acknowledgement of influence. Both Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin have had the (dis)honor.
A former managing editor of the magazine wrote,
“[T]he person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year, for better or for worse.“
Plus, as we all know, this POTUS has a history of lying that goes WAY back. Last June, The Washington Post noted that fake covers of Time magazine featuring Trump hang in his golf clubs.
Time‘s Person of the Year will be announced December 6. The odds are narrowing as to who it might be. PLEASE let it be Hillary, it would be such a blow to his ego.
