You’re kidding, right? How is this even a contest? And who invited the also-rans?
Trump’s win shocked everyone except the patriots living in ‘fly-over’ America. The media was stunned.
The shortlist for the Time ‘Person of the Year’ was revealed Monday morning on Today, and there were few surprises.
The eight finalists this year are: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Vladmir Putin, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Nigel Farage, Beyonce, Simone Biles, the Flint whistleblowers and the CRISPR scientists.
This 2016 Time ‘Person of the Year’ will be revealed this Wednesday on Today.
Time revealed on Monday that Prime Minister Modi was the winner of the online reader’s poll for the ‘Person of the Year’ honor.
He won 18 percent of the vote, finishing well ahead of the other finalists.
There was a three-way tie for second place, with Trump, President Barack Obama and Julian Assange all finished with 7 percent of the vote.

Trump and Clinton?
That would be consistent… every recent President except Ford has made the list at least once.
They hogged the headlines… but considering Wikileaks, Clinton Foundation, and that unfinished business with the FBI, (and the minor fact that she LOST the election) she doesn’t make much sense. Some of the other candidates make sense, sure.
Putin on the list? Not that surprising. They love their Russian dictators.
Putin has won it before. Also Kruschev, and Stalin (twice). Hitler and the Ayatolla have made the list, too.
But who invited Beyonce? Is she a two-fer with Hillary? They seemed joined at the hip during her campaigns. Since she didn’t even succeed in THAT accomplishment, we are wondering how she made the cut.
Actually, on second thought, they do like to throw in silly nominees. Like 1998 ‘The Endangered Earth’… and 2006 ‘You’.
If they DO choose a candidate from the States? It would make the most sense to go with America’s ‘First Citizen President’ (ie: never held office nor worked in the military)… a guy who beat long odds to knock out the most entrenched of insider families.
