TIME Magazine: Trump is completely lying


Donald Trump cares about a few things: self-tanner, legacy wealth, reality television ratings, and twitter followers rank high among them. But now we can safely add to TIME Magazine’s annual Person of the Year selection. More to the point, he kind of thinks it should be him… every year.

TIME goes to great lengths to specify that the person of the year is chosen as most influential in American life — for better or for worse. Most of us thought “for worse” when then president-elect Trump was chosen last year. But just one year wasn’t good enough to satiate Donald Trump, so he needed people to know that TIME made overtures about having again selected him, but that he turned them down.

The first thing that jumps out at one is that Trump thanks TIME anyway, as though he is under the impression that this is a merit-based honor, even after having actually held the title last year.

Trump has publicly complained for years about having been passed over, only to win (?) last year and spread a rumor that he rejected the back-to-back selection. The primary problem with this is that it is false, per TIME.

Clearly there is a market for TIME to usher in a new era of Most Ruinous Person of the Year. I feel good about Trump’s chances on that one. Perennially.
