The internet is awash with disagreements as Time magazine named United States of America’s President-elect Donald Trump as its ‘Person of the Year’ for 2016. The usually controversial honour has again attracted divergent views.
And here are some of them.

Donald Trump is TIME Person of the Year, joining past honorees including Hitler, Stalin, the Ayatollah Khamenei, and YOU.

@TIME Why give an egotistical narcissist clout by featuring him as person of the year?

It could be a honor to be chosen PERSON OF THE YEAR. Consider other recipients. Ie HITLER, STALEN #notmypresident

Just remember that in 2006, you and I were Time’s Person of the Year too. So we’re all Hitler?

Time’s Person of the Year goes to the individual who for better OR WORSE had the greatest impact on world events https://t.co/UppOvU7U7C

I wouldn’t be surprised if DT got person of the year again next year. Stop wasting time on this guy.

Wow hard to believe Donald Trump is Time’s Person of the Year and also Clown Magazine’s “shitfuck Assface” of the year. Congrats!

#Trump is this year’s Time Person of the Year. Remember, it’s not an award. It’s an indication of someone who had an impact.
— PolitiSquirrel (@PolitiSquirrel) December 7, 2016
So, @realDonaldTrump is TIME person of the year. Let’s see, who else was TIME person of the year? Oh, right, Adolf Hitler.

Times Person of the Year is not a thumbs up; it acknowledges their contribution to the zeitgeist, as can be seen by the byline. https://t.co/aiOfu4fScx

Since 1929, only 5 women have been selected as Person of the Year by Time … I’d like to see who votes on these ‘selections’. #America

Time Person of the Year isn’t always an honor. Being influential doesn’t always mean it’s a positive influence. https://t.co/b0R3N9cF58

Time magazine aiming for irrelevance with cheap tactic.
Donald Trump is Time magazine’s Person of the Year – https://t.co/bGsMbpjOtx

When you’re upset that Trump got Person of the Year but then you remember Hitler & Stalin did, too. pic.twitter.com/qxpUZmERp0

People don’t seem to realise Time’s Person of the Year isn’t awarded for being a good person

@_JaceX we were talking about Trump when people mentioned Obama also being a person of the year. So I believe it’s still on topic pal.

.@Randdand It’s nice when the Person of the Year is a positive force in the world. But that’s not what it’s about. This year it’s a fascist.
— Jonny’s in America (@RezOKC) December 7, 2016
Think @TIME would’ve given Trump Person of the Year title even if Hillary had won for “being the most talked about” or something like that.

Congratulations. Person of the Year. We need Make America Great Again. Thanks.

Time Mag’s Person of the Year is about who has been the biggest influence during the year; it’s not an endorsement of what they stand for.
