Time Magazine has released its list of finalists for 2017’s “Person of the Year” issue – and what a list it is.
After Trump criticized Time for informing him that he was in the running to win “Person of the Year” for the second year in a row – an honor last achieved by former President Richard Nixon, who was named man of the year in 1972 and 1973 – it appears Trump was right once again: He is one of 10 contenders for the honor released to MSNBC – even though editors at Time claimed the phone call never happened (though how else would Trump have known he was in the running, other than a lucky guess?).
The other names on the list are: Amazon CEO and world’s richest man Jeff Bezos, the #MeToo movement, Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, Colin Kaepernick, the dreamers, Robert Mueller and Patty Jenkins (Jenkins directed the Hollywood blockbuster “Wonder Woman”).
Of the names on this year’s list, only Trump and Bezos have won the honor before (Bezos won it in 1999 at the height of the tech bubble.
