Person of Interest?!....Time announces nominees for 'Person of the Year'.....

.....and yes, 'he' is on the list.....


Donald Trump’s Person Of Year Competition: Patty Jenkins, Robert Mueller, Kim Jong Un, #MeToo

.....Time revealed its shortlist for 2017’s Person of The Year crown. Yes, President Donald Trump is on the list, despite insisting last month he’d said “no thanks” to magazine execs because they would not guarantee him the win.

Making this year’s short list: Patty Jenkins, who broke glass ceilings for female directors working on event films, delivering the best opening and best worldwide cume ($821.8 million) for a live-action tentpole helmed by a woman with the Warner Bros/DC pic Wonder Woman. Jenkins is returning for the sequel, Wonder Woman 2, again starring Gal Gadot and due for release on November 1, 2019.

Late last month, as Time magazine ramped up for its annual Person of the Year reveal, Trump took to Twitter with claims the magazine called him to say he was “probably” going to receive the honor. But, instead of accepting the title for the second year in a row, Trump said he decided to take a pass.


“I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot,” Trump tweeted. “I said ‘probably’ is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”

Joining Trump on this year’s list are a slew of thorns in Trump’s side. The list, in no particular order:

-Amazon chief/Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos

-North Korea ruler Kim Jong Un

-Russia election-meddle probe Special Counsel Robert Mueller

-NFL-ers national anthem protest launcher Colin Kaepernick

-#MeToo Movement

-China President Xi Jinping

-The Dreamers

-Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman



Time will announce its 2017 Person of Year on Wednesday.



Time.....is on your side......?!

Kaepernick would send Donnie Two-Scoops over the edge.

My guess is the Chinese president, solidifying the power at home and improving China's position in the world (partially thanks to "him").

I'm taking my name off the list and won't accept it even if they give it to me.

#metoo isn't a person - should mean instant disqualification.

Patty Jenkins may be a good director, but I had to look her up - instant disqualification.

Really, the list should consist of Trump, Kim and maybe Mueller. Everyone else should be WAY down below these...

....they have said that 'Person of the Year' doesn't have to be an actual person....it can be a thing, concept, etc......

They're wrong - a person is a person. Other things are not.

(in case it isn't obvious - this is my opinion)

Mueller next year - one way or another!

There are still plenty of people that have no idea who Kaepernick is. The same can't be said about Trump or Kim. But Mueller for next year sounds right on.

Pretty much. I have only a passing familiarity with Kaepernick and only through what you guys n gals have posted here as I simply have no time to watch TV any more. Don't need TV to keep up with Trump and Kim. I have less familiarity with Mueller (though more than Kaepernick) but it makes sense that he may be a better choice for next year.

1950 - The American Fighting Man
1956 - The Hungarian Freedom Fighter
1960 - U.S. Scientists
1966 - The Inheritor
1968 - The Apollo 8 Astronauts
and many more.

yes, they've made this mistake before... they should stop it.

It's an intriguing idea - what single person had the greatest effect on the news for a given year? Hitler... FDR... Trump. It shouldn't be hard to find a single human every year that fits. The 'personal computer' as Person of the Year is the dumbest thing ever imo...

Why not a corporation? They are synthetic persons able to wield economic power, influence politicians and voters, and enjoy immortality. Or perhaps a PAC, like ALEC, that writes laws for Ohio and has major pharma and private prison corporations as members. The opioid pandemic is beneficial to ALEC. It is quite a nasty piece of work, and well suited to Time's cover.

Citizen's United has defined a corporation as a person, so there's your precedent.
