Time Man of the Year Issues Celebrated Obama, Trashed Trump

President-elect Trump was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” on Wednesday, just as then-President-elect Obama received the same distinction in 2008 after winning that election.

But that’s where the similarities stop.

On Obama in 2008: “For having the confidence to sketch that kind of future in this gloomy hour and for showing the competence that makes Americans hopeful that he will pull it off, Barack Obama is Time’s Person of the Year for 2008.”

On Trump in 2016: “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 … Donald Trump is Time’s 2016 Person of the Year.”

  1. Another whine from the left. They hate Donald because he wants whats best for America

    They want whats bad for America.

    No reason to love illegals coming here to rape and pillage. Wave their Mexican flags and to hate us.

    The left loves that! HATE HATE That is them!

  2. Time magazine has long gone the way of buggy whips, the Hudson 8 motor car, and Buck Rogers. It’s a “used to be” item. No one who has a life pays the slightest attention to the “Time Person of the Year” selectee.

  3. Good they will lose money on the issue. Lefties won’t buy it for fear they will drop dead from some demonic ether emitting from the picture. Conservatives or pro Trump people won’t buy it because we know it is biased BS content.

    The more stuff like this they do, the faster they hasten their own demise which works well for me.

  4. I know this is so na├»ve, but WHY would Time Magazine do this? Why would they seek to tarnish the honor? Why do they discount those who voted for Trump? Who is so hateful, so prejudiced, so biased that they can’t bestow an honor in a way that shows honor?

    I am getting discouraged by how implacably the left hates Trump.

    1. Well said. Reading both honoree descriptions is surreal. Neither are true, just words put together by one more butt hurt leftie….prior “tingle down my leg” doofus.

  5. The left media is really getting tiresome. They truly insult the people that voted for Trump.
    It looks like they are becoming even more evil
    than they were.
