    TIME's Person of the Year (Trump)

    I'm sure most of you have heard about this story. Here's the short version:

    Trump Tweeted:
    Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named "Man (Person) of the Year" like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot, I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!
    And then TIME tweeted:
    The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6
    This is complete and utter BS on the part of TIME. Of course they would comment and tell the person they picked. How else would they get the photo shoot and interview? And it's not like TIME called Trump's personal line and said "Hey, want to be Man of the Year if......". No. Someone from TIME called the office of the President and told them Trump was being considered but he would have to do an interview and photoshoot and then he might be the person when they do the reveal. Some WH lackey took the message and sent it up the chain of command and it reached Trump. Without a guarantee he decided to pass. Of course they couldn't let that stand and tweeted their response to make him look bad.

    Now, where am I going with this you ask? Here's what I think will happen. TIME, out of spite, will name Colin Kaepernick "Person of the Year". And the press will have a field day with it. More of the Liberals strategy to tear at Trump's Presidency.

    That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!
    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Kaepernick slipped into irrelevancy a year ago. He's done nothing.
    If they want to stick it to Trump, they'll nominate Obama for "leaving us to suffer with this new president".
    That event did indeed have quite an impact.

    Who would want to share an award with Obama and Hitler?

    Time is just another irrelevant legacy media failure.
    Being recognized by them is akin to getting an innovation award from Horse and Buggy Review.

    Trump was Time Person of the Years last year. Douchebag CNN Acosta thinks that Mueller could be picked in spite. I see this or someone else like previously mentioned being picked to get under the skin of Trump.

    Time absolutely called Trump with the plan of setting up an interview and making him Person of the Year for the 2nd year in a row. It is true to his character (something lefties do not have) to publically decline the fake news outlet. On a side note, Rupert Murdoch is in talks to buy Time.
