Trump Named Time Magazine’s 2016 Person Of The Year

WASHINGTON (CBSLA.com/AP) — Time magazine on Wednesday named President-elect Donald Trump its Person of the Year.

The magazine’s managing editor, Nancy Gibbs, said that Democrat Hillary Clinton was the No. 2 finalist. Gibbs said the choice of Trump this year was “straightforward.”

“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?” Gibbs said.

The Time cover reads, “Donald Trump: President of the Divided States of America” and the cover image features a photograph of the president-elect sitting in his private residence at Trump Tower.

The distinction comes somewhat as a surprise given that Time had previously devoted not one, but two separate covers to what the magazine termed as a Trump “meltdown” followed by a “total meltdown” with less than a month before the election.
