Donald Trump is Time’s Person of the Year. What a long way we’ve come since 2015, when Angela Merkel was POY.
Trump beat out Hillary Clinton, Beyoncé, “The Hackers” and more to take home the win. “When have we ever seen a single individual who has so defied expectations, broken the rules, violated norms, beaten not one, but two political parties on the way to winning an election that he entered with 100-1 odds against him?” said Time editor Nancy Gibbs about the decision. “I don’t think that we have ever seen one person operating in such an unconventional way have an impact on the events of the year.”
Can you even imagine how much this pleases him? He definitely doesn’t want to actually be president, but a meaningless award that comes with his face being plastered on a magazine across the country? That is something Trump truly wants.
