Every year Time names a person who they deem made the biggest splash— basically whoever they feel had the best year ever.
Looking at how this year went, we’re not AT ALL suprised by their choice for 2016:
Donald Trump has been endorsed by Time magazine as person of the year! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain pic.twitter.com/50J8e8jnbk

Of course people are up-in-arms, but it’s election year. If Hillary Clinton would have won, the cover would have for sure been hers. Since the internet is the land of the trolling and the opinionated, let’s see what the people had to say about the new cover guy:
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

Just a reminder.
Time Person of the Year.

Remember, TIME honors the most NEWSWORTHY person of the year, NOT the most respected. Hitler and Stalin both graced the cover in their time.
