Don’t be fooled with Time Magazine making Donald Trump their Person of the Year.
In typical Liberal fashion, this “designation” insults Donald Trump and in no way represents an homage.
Time should have just given Trump the designation they really wanted to give him: Asshole of the Year.
That’s what you call a person who ruins a good thing. For Liberals: Hillary Clinton represented a good thing.
Time and other Liberals wanted to make Hillary Clinton their person of the year. In the not so deep archives at Time rests a tear-stained article written to glorify crooked Hillary Clinton.
However, after the devastating loss by Clinton, Time pivoted to make a financial decision. Thus, they gave the distinction to Trump, and used the President-elect as “click bait” to sell their magazines.
As FOX News wrote:
While describing Trump as the real change-maker of 2016, the magazine also ragged on the Republican president-elect as a “huckster” and “demagogue” while reserving its most glowing praise for runner-up Hillary Clinton — whom the edition breathlessly described as “an American Moses.”
Personally, I’d like to see Trump turn down the designation. What does it mean anyway?
These Liberal distinctions are meaningless. They get people to vie for worthless praise from worthless rags or other organizations. Designations like this are to make man feel that he has meaning in the universe. Because Liberal like to give themselves meaning.
The FOX News article continues,
In describing Trump, Time’s article almost exclusively used backhanded compliments. For instance, while the piece said he “did what no American politician had attempted in a generation,” it added that he “magnified the divisions of the present, inspiring new levels of anger and fear within his country.”
And then there was “fake news,” Julian, as in Assange.
WikiLeaks proved that Democrats incited violence at Trump rallies, and paid Black Lives Matter and other agitators. yet Trump fomented violence?
The magnifier of magnifiers in division is Time Person of the Year 2012.
Two years ago, Republicans liked to say that the only hard thing Obama ever did right was beating Hillary Clinton in the primary, and in electoral terms, there was some truth to that. In 2012 the GOP hoped to cast him as an inspiring guy who was not up to the job. But now we know the difference between the wish and the thing, the hype and the man in the office.
He stands somewhat shorter, having won 4 million fewer votes and two fewer states than in 2008. But his 5 million-vote margin of victory out of 129 million ballots cast shocked experts in both parties, and it probably would have been higher had so much of New York and New Jersey not stayed home after Hurricane Sandy. He won many of the toughest battlegrounds walking away: Virginia by 4 points, Colorado by 5 and the lily white states of Iowa and New Hampshire by 6.
He untied Ohio’s knotty heartland politics, picked the Republican lock on Florida Cubans and won Paul Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wis. (Those last two data points especially caught the President’s interest.) He will take the oath on Jan. 20 as the first Democrat in more than 75 years to get a majority of the popular vote twice. Only five other Presidents have done that in all of U.S. history.
Look at all those lofty political accomplishments. Time can surely pick ’em. Obama’s first four years qualified him for nothing, het Time made him Person of the Year. Leading up to his distinction, Obama passed ObamaCare, which is now about to be completely dismantled.
He resided over the worst economy in American history, and obscured his ineffectiveness by hiding behind bogus statistics.
His foreign policy was feeble at first, and became downright maniacal at the end. Whether it was wars with bullets or wars with currency, one thing was certain: Obama lost.
Race relations in America have people living in fear, and this includes blacks who fear other blacks (Liberals).
Obama has presided over what historians will report as the most crooked administration in our history, with the least transparency.
President-elect Trump has negotiated to keep 1100 jobs in Indianapolis, something Obama said would require a “magic wand.” And if that wasn’t enough, Trump now has a Japan technology firm’s commitment to invest $50 billion in the American economy, and create 50,000 jobs. Yet Time calls Trump a “huckster.”
“Now it’s difficult to count all the ways Trump remade the game: the huckster came off more real than the scripted political pros. The cable-news addict made pollsters look like chumps. The fabulist out-shouted journalists fighting to separate fact from falsehood. The demagogue won more Latino and black votes than the 2012 Republican nominee,” Time’s Michael Scherer said in one particularly bruising paragraph.
If the award for Person of the Year went to hucksters, then Barack Obama would win every year, hands down. Perhaps we could have made an exception this year and given the award to Hillary Clinton.
And what Trump slam-fest would be complete without mentioning his “deplorables,” whom Hillary Clinton found nonredeemable.
Among the descriptions of what it called “Trump’s America,” Time described a land “where a hijab-wearing college student in New York reports being attacked and jeered at in the next President’s name, where American-born children ask their citizen parents if Trump will deport them, where white supremacists throw out Nazi salutes in Washington meeting halls for their President-elect.” [It is worth noting that President Obama is still in charge until January.]
Sounds suspiciously like DNC and Democratic Party (excuse the redundancy) talking points.
The FOX News article then points out how Time described Hillary Clinton:
The article on Hillary Clinton is much different. Subtitled “The winner of the popular vote leaves a complicated legacy,” the tone is worlds away from the fulminating darkness that permeates the Trump piece.
Apparently the writer still smarts from losing the electoral vote–the way presidents are elected. Hillary Clinton lost…get over it.
