TIME: Donald Trump Person of the Year 2016



This is the 90th time we have named the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year. So which is it this year: Better or worse? The challenge for Donald Trump is how profoundly the country disagrees about the answer.

It’s hard to measure the scale of his disruption. This real estate baron and casino owner turned reality-TV star and provocateur—never a day spent in public office, never a debt owed to any interest besides his own—now surveys the smoking ruin of a vast political edifice that once housed parties, pundits, donors, pollsters, all those who did not see him coming or take him seriously. Out of this reckoning, Trump is poised to preside, for better or worse.

For those who believe this is all for the better, Trump’s victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class; for those who see it as for the worse, the destruction extends to cherished norms of civility and discourse, a politics poisoned by vile streams of racism, sexism, nativism. To his believers, he delivers change—broad, deep, historic change, not modest measures doled out in Dixie cups; to his detractors, he inspires fear both for what he may do and what may be done in his name.



Well, they gave it to him.

They just couldn't help themselves could they: "The President of the Divided States of America".

Because it was Trump who had all the Paid Riot Squads out at the Trump rallies assaulting people and inciting riots, right TIME?

No. The last paragraph is a real piece of work:



For reminding America that demagoguery feeds on despair and that truth is only as powerful as the trust in those who speak it, for empowering a hidden electorate by mainstreaming its furies and live-streaming its fears, and for framing tomorrow’s political culture by demolishing yesterday’s, Donald Trump is TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year.

I love how they portrayed Trump in this photo.

He's wearing the Patriotic American Colors, Red White and Blue. Sitting in a well worn chair, worn out by previous Presidents, and from the feel i'm getting from it, a bit too worn out. Trump's chair is facing sideways, but he's turning towards the Camera as if to state his presence to the People of America first and then, to the World.

Donald Trump has a stern intense glance on his face, he's not happy with the current and previous administrations running the Country, and he intends to fix it. One hand is placed over the other as though to state he means business but, he's also doing so with Dignity.

I actually thought they might pick the SJWs protesting "not my president".

I wonder if 6 million Jews wouldn't have preferred Trump.

HuffPost- Comparing Trump to Hitler Is Worst Kind of Hate Speech



Whatever the rationalization, it has to stop. Trivializing Hitler and the Nazi regime is not only supremely dangerous and foolish, it is also insensitive and a slap in the face to all who suffered under that regime.

Just pointing out "Hitler got that award too".

It means nothing but I prefer a Trump supporter to mention it first.

Replace Trump's with any other name and this is the case every election. Anti-Trump people can't seem to get a handle on their emotions this time though. Gotta love TIME's passive aggressive story line. You can tell it really hurt their pride making Trump the POTY.

I wonder if they felt that same when it was MLK in '63, Putin in '07, Obama in '08, The Protester in '11, or Obama in '12....

That's a fantastic depiction of his picture. Star for you.

Heh... Joke's on you, Nancy Gibbs. It was Hillary who had 100/1 odds of winning this election. Only the naive droolers thought Trump had the slim odds.

TIME interviewed this girl, and she said it perfectly...

Shannon Goodin, 24, Owosso, Mich.
Trump earned the support of Goodin, a first-time voter, by being "a big poster child for change," she says, adding, "Politicians don't appeal to us. Clinton would go out of her way to appeal to minorities, immigrants, but she didn't really for everyday Americans."

As did Obama, twice. And Martin Luther King.
