Well… since Time is now more-or-less a Koch Brother Propoerty, I vote for The Coal Miner!


#3

The K Bros would put Ayn Rand on the cover for sure.


#5

Add in one or more of Turnip’s accusers, and it’ll be a winner.


#6

Give it to Robert Mueller.

Although Angela Merkel, leader of the free world, may be another good choice.


#7

Russian twitter and facebook bots


#8

While it does appear that 45’s cranial volume is approximately normal, I submit his cerebral mass is probably too small to make the kind of mess you’re suggesting.


#9

Play it safe. Go with “Moms”. The are the people of the year every year!


#10

Id love to see Trumps face if it turned out to be Putin. lol


#11

My vote: Assange and Putin.
My suspicion is that Person of the Year will go to the #MeToo women.


#12

The Coal Miner? That’s actually a pretty solid idea. There are so many things they could write about using the coal miner as a theme to tie it all together. Very nice.


#13

A vote for Antifa from me.

Who had heard of them before this year, other than the far-left?


#14

In a just world:

Most people - especially Trump - think that this award is for being the ”best” at something, but it’s simply for being the most influential - that could be good OR bad. Many past recipients were not good people.

I’d say that Putin should win it this year.


#16

I assume that everyone else has

2006 Time’s Person of the Year

as a resume bullet point, too.


#17

I’d say that the Man of the Year from 1938 has influenced the news more than he has since the 40s. Time for Hitler to be Person of the Year again.


#18

It would be like Dealy Plaza but less violent.


#19

Yeah - It’s Putin.


#20

Someone mentioned the #metoo movement, honestly I think that might be it. I think it would be an excellent choice.

You can actually vote:

And you can vote for more than one.
