TIME’s 2016 Person Of The Year, WTF?!?!

Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Was Donald Trump the right pick for Time’s person of the year? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Time magazine, unsurprisingly, has named President-elect Donald J. Trump its person of the year for 2016, calling him the “president of the divided states of America.”

Mr. Trump was not happy about that title, but called his selection a “tremendous honor.”

As NBC was building suspense for the magazine’s carefully staged announcement on the “Today” show, Mr. Trump posted on Twitter at 7:18 a.m. that he would appear shortly on the program.

The annual marketing gimmick has, since the 1920s, attempted to select a single figure or a group that has influenced the year’s events.

Mr. Trump beat out 10 other finalists announced on Monday, including Hillary Clinton; Simone Biles, the Olympic gymnast; Beyoncé; Mark Zuckerberg; and the Flint, Mich., whistle-blowers, the residents and civil engineers who sounded the alarm on lead-poisoned water in the city.

The magazine’s “No. 2” person of the year was Mrs. Clinton, who is on track to win the popular vote but lost the Electoral College in the presidential election to Mr. Trump.”*

    the tangerine tyrant will rain hell fire on the world

      Probably not. More likely he’ll just run the presidency like he runs his
      business (conning as much personal gain as possible from it.)

    • Posted by luna rising, at Reply

      Nature Boy Do you live under a rock maybe you should! Because he said he
      was going to make America à police state,
      He ‘s going to be the law an order President. to all thank you?😂

    • Posted by luna rising, at Reply

      oops you f#%k us all Now it is going to destroy Mother Earth!

    • Posted by Nature Boy, at Reply

      +luna rising You know, if I could find a nice cool rock to live under
      that’d be great. Meantime we already live in a police state. Obama already
      killed Habeas Corpus on New Year’s Eve 2014. Im sure you’ve also seen
      what’s happening in Standing Rock and how police are murdering unarmed
      black men all over the country.

      My first comment was in response to the original post. Trump is much less
      of a hawk than he is a corrupt con man. There will be massive deregulation
      and environmental damage, but he’s not starting WW3

      Okay, thanks.

    • Posted by nigling, at Reply

      +Cisco Blue white genocide is real according to the definition of it. It
      falls under “the deliberate removal of a tribe/race of people via
      underbreeding/sterilization/overpopulation/mass-immigration of a foreign
      group” Basically europe is controlled by non-whites. So since then have you
      noticed that europe isn’t the same europe we once knew in the early 1900s?
      I’m mixed race so i can say this, white people know its true but they are
      not allowed to say it, and minorities know its true but they dont care
      about europe’s tribes (celts, nordics, spaniards, greeks, italians, slavs).

    Why shouldn’t Donald Trump be person of the year? He was under constant
    assault from the media, the democrats, and the republicans, and he still
    beat them all, even though his campaign only cost half as much as seizure
    grandma’s. He’s untouchable, unlike the innocent children molested by
    pedophile rings, such as the one being exposed in #pizzagate, which TYT
    refuses to cover.

      Cenk “salty” in this video anyway? He literally said no one else could have
      been person of the year

      why they were so shocked that Trump won, because the media told them that

      surprised at all, we just watched and laughed our asses off
