Donald Trump started a fight with Time when he alleged he contacted, and ultimately rejected, the "Person of the Year" distinction.
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017
Time's savage response was simultaneously classy, while also putting the president in his place.
The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.— TIME (@TIME) November 25, 2017
The president has a huge obsession with the magazine for some reason. And this isn't the first time he called them out for not nominating him.
The president's recent gripes with the popular magazine soon inspired people to create their own "Person of the Year" covers, and they're pretty amazing.
It all started with this BuzzFeed AM to DM green-screen tweet.
