President-elect Donald Trump, the real estate businessman and political novice whose election campaign made the entire world take notice, has been selected as TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year.
"To be on the cover of Time as Person of the Year is a tremendous honor," Trump told Matt Lauer in an interview after the reveal.

The President-elect did however take issue with the magazine's choice to refer to him as "President of the Divided States of America."

"I think putting 'divided' is snarky," Trump said. "I didn’t do anything to divide."


I think he is The Person of the Year! We are counting on him. All of his supporters are excited to see what changes he is able to enact when taking his position in The White House. Do I believe he is a God, no. Do I believe that he will be able to do more than what Obama ever dreamed of doing, absolutely!

I find it hilarious that they can't just congratulate him. Instead they refer to him as "President of the Divided States of America". Come on guys, give him a chance!

I never really looked at this as a prize where you would want congratulations, it is more of a 'who was most interesting' or 'who impacted the news most' type of honorific.

Guess I see it a little differently.

I've just had a Mandela moment. I could have sworn that the 2015 Person was someone controversial, like the leader of ISIS. I've just checked, and it was Angela Merkel. My memory is playing me tricks again.
Anyway, it was Obama in 2012. This is really about "Who makes the most news", isn't it? Natural choice, on that basis.

Adolph Hitler won as well and Bin Laden was in the running one year.

Sadly when Hitler and Stalin won; people had a horrible view on life.
They picked Hitler because they felt he had accomplished great things (again I am NOT agreeing)

As German Chancellor, Hitler oversaw the unification of Germany with Austria and the Sudetenland in 1938, after the Anschluss and Munich Agreement respectively.

And they same with Stalin

In 1939, Stalin was General Secretary of the Communist Party and de facto leader of the Soviet Union. He oversaw the signing of a non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany before invading eastern Poland.

Officially, the Person of the Year is the one who was the most influential, good or bad. But in truth, because the award is generally considered an honor, it rarely goes to someone generally regarded as bad.

Case in point: In 2001, they were seriously considering naming Osama bin Laden the Person of the Year, because of the massive impact the 9/11 attacks had on world events. But when rumors of this leaked out, people were outraged that Time would "honor" him with Person of the Year. Eventually, Time wimped out and settled on Rudy Giuliani as a safer choice.

Yeah, it was a #ty year.

Might as well have an asshole on the cover.

Hm. It would be interesting to see if mere asskissing and covers would be enough to make you guys think MSM has come around

It was their impact on world affairs which saw them receiving this title, pretty much the same as Trump. It is not a humanitarian award.

Holy # - this will undoubtedly be the mother of all triggers for someone looking at needing to be offended by Trump when they get up every morning.

"needing to be offended"

Is that on Maslow's hierarchy of needs somewhere?

They're just trying to get people all triggered and flipping out on checkout cashiers at grocery stores this month. Call it a 'passive-regressive' method of vicariously abusing people.

What are you going to do? Half the country does not like him. If you like him, be happy, forget what other people say.
