Trump complains that ‘Person of the Year’ title is ‘politically correct’
Donald Trump’s vexation with being dubbed “President of the Divided States of America” by Time magazine persists, with the president-elect finding new and creative ways to harangue the publication that dared to be so bold.
At a post-campaign rally in Iowa, Trump took issue with being christened Person of the Year—as opposed to Man of the Year—adding further credence to the trope that masculinity is, despite a historical symbolic association with vigor, more fragile than a snowflake resting on the mushy scalp of a newborn baby.
“They used to call it Man of the Year, but they can’t do that anymore,” Trump told his Iowan supporters. “They call it Person. They want to be politically correct. That’s OK.”
Trump also continued to blast the magazine for labeling him a divisive figure, telling an Iowa crowd: “We’re going to bring the nation together. We’re not going to have a divided nation.”
