Donald Trump is having a very bad Wednesday morning after TIME Magazine announced their pick for “Person of the Year,” and it wasn’t him. Without trying to sound like too much of a sniveling idiot after his whole “I’m PROBABLY going to be TIME’s Person of the Year” tweet, Trump tweeted one short sentence to let the world know he was awake and that he doesn’t really care.
Trump just tweeted the following:
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

That’s it. No image, no video, no further explanation. Just MAGA.
Maybe he hasn’t had his morning quarter pounder yet, guys. Cut him some slack.
Donald Trump made it into Time’s Person of the Year issue after all: As one of the accused.

What Trump does not want to talk about is TIME Magazine’s choice to give the brave women behind the viral #MeToo sensation that brought awareness to the fact that sexual harassment/assault against women is a worldwide pandemic thats magnitude was unknown until people like actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, Rose McGowan, and Alyssa Milano, to name a few, started the movement. List released by USA Today.
Thank you EVERYONE!! Especially all of you who rang the alarm when you thought I wasn’t being acknowledged. I couldn’t say anything!! I’m sorry. But I felt every bit of the love. Now the work REALLY begins. 💕#metoo

If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet. pic.twitter.com/k2oeCiUf9n

Donald Trump is on Time’s person of the year short list. He’s on my person of the year shit list.

Naturally, Fox News is throwing a fit:
.@dbongino on @Kaepernick7: "My friends who put their butts on the line every day for no money and zero recognition are deeply offended that a guy who wore a set of socks depicting police officers as pigs is now being considered for [@TIME's Person of the Year]." pic.twitter.com/NrZJxhoclx
