I suppose he's having a meltdown. No doubt we can expect tweets about how 'someone' told him he was going to be Person of the Year. Or how TIME is 'fake news'. Or something else from that "garbage disposal unit" he calls a brain.
Why was there no chance? Nixon was Man of the Year twice in a row (sort of, with Kissenger) and Trump was headline news almost every day for the past year. Just curious why there was no chance (I am not familiar with the selection process and there was historical precedence -- sort of).
Kissinger's selection was not 'Nixon sort of being named twice'.
It's not technically impossible, just unprecedented.
Trump being elected was also unprecedented. Trump making idiotic comments on Twitter every day was this year's most nauseatingly repetitious story, and literally anything needed to be a better choice than that.
I'm not a professor of history but to me, that is sort of named twice. 1.5 sacks if he's in the NFL.
Was just curious about the original claim that there was "no chance" that Trump would be Person of the Year. Just wondering if there was some rule that I didn't know about, or if it was an opinion that Trump's chances were low.
