NEW YORK — Time magazine has named President-elect Donald Trump its Person of the Year — calling him “President of the Divided States of America.”

“I don’t think that we have ever seen one person, operating in such an unconventional way, have an impact on the events of the year,” said Time editor Nancy Gibbs.

She called this year’s choice “one of the more straightforward years.” Trump beat runner-up Hillary Clinton for the distinction, which Gibbs said is given to the newsmaker who has the biggest influence on world events, for better or worse.

Placing third was “the hackers,” to cover people who breached the records of major government organizations, politicians, celebrities and everyday citizens.

The short list also included President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, scientists who developed new DNA-related technology and Beyonce.

The announcement was revealed on NBC’s “Today” show. Speaking on the show via phone, Trump called the title a “very, very great honor.”

    It’s meaningless and i’d tell them to stick it up their ass. But it has to piss off nbc that they had to announce it, lol.

    • Liberal cry babies get their feelings hurt

      Not as meaningless as your liberal-tainted posts. As if you’ve actually done anything in life to warrant any rewards or accolades! LOL! Go change those diapers cry baby, you’re starting to stink up the place.

  • Liberal Hypocrisy

    The joke known as the media continues. They call him the “President of the Divided States of America ” That of course implies he created the divide. BS!! Obama and the rest of the Leftists created the divide. PC, microagressions, identity politics, everybody who disagrees with them is a racist, a Nazi, a Fascist………The narrative was created by Leftists and forced down the throats of all Americans by the media. Time goes on to call Trump a “demagogue” and a “huckster” yet showers Hillary with utmost praise. They called her “An American Moses”. Ohhhhh PUKE!!!

    And they still wonder why Trump won.

  • Leave our country if you don't like it

    Maybe next they’ll show a picture of you butt-hurt liberal snowflakes complete with your dirty diapers. Talk about sore losers! Hahahaha!
