Like most things involving Trump, people were divided on his Person of the Year award.
Donald Trump was in our headlines yet again this morning when TIME announced he was their choice for Person of the Year. Their criteria are based on "the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse." It's up to you to decide which Trump is. Twitter seemed pretty divided, with people on the left citing previous People of the Year were were less than ideal (Hitler, Stalin, etc.), while people on the right simply basked in the glow of Trump's victory lap.
Trump appeared on "The Today Show" this morning and said this about the award: “Me growing up reading TIME magazine, it’s a very important magazine. I’ve been lucky enough to be on the cover many times this year and last year, but I consider this a very, very great honor."

Of course he's the person of the year. Only person w/ a bigger effect on 2016 is The Grim Reaper & he wouldn't sit for a picture. Or did he? pic.twitter.com/PHQ5bcNEt7— W. Kamau Bell (@wkamaubell) December 7, 2016
