Time magazine has named President-elect Donald Trump its Person of the Year for his shocking upset election victory that rewrote the rules of politics.
“When have we ever seen a single individual who has so defied expectations, broken the rules, violated norms, beaten not one but two political parties on the way to winning an election that he entered with 100-to-1 odds against him?” the magazine’s managing editor, Nancy Gibbs, said on Wednesday on NBC’s Today Show.
The article went on to associate white supremacists with Trump. It also claimed he wants to deport children and that he is encouraging attacks against American Muslims. I believe they missed the many times Trump has denounced white supremacists and said he did not want their support.
They also seem to have forgotten the moment when, during his first post-election interview, Trump ordered his supporters who were reportedly committing violence to “stop it.”
“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,” the article said.
Conversely, they claimed that Hillary Clinton is “the woman who was almost president, she is what might have been and what will yet be.”
They portrayed her as a fighter for women’s rights, arguing that, “Like an American Moses, she was an imperfect prophet, leading women to the edge of the Promised Land. Now, it’s up to another woman to enter it,” the article said.
The writer of this article is clearly side-stepping the fact that Hillary Clinton is a corrupt Washington insider. She is the poster child of lies, political calculation, deception, and the establishment. Is the complete corruption of our government a “promised land” she led women to the edge of too?
Leave it to the left to pretend Hillary is a liberal saint who was merely on a quest to become the first female president. There are many more matters at stake in an election than the gender of the candidates!
They also ignored the fact that Clinton ran a terrible campaign based on dark Wall Street money while claiming to be a fighter for the people. She ran nothing but negative ads and attempted to smear Donald Trump with lies at every turn.
She has flip flopped on gay marriage, the Iraq War, and countless other positions. She barely ever talked to the press, and when she did it was only to media outlets whose message she essentially owned as Wikileaks revealed. She ran a private email server so she could email unethically, creating a pay-to-play system within the State Department.
Time Magazine should have run an unbiased “Person of the Year” article if they wanted people to take the magazine seriously.
