2016 strikes again.
Donald Trump has, so it would seem, won 2016 as a whole, and was just announced Time Magazine's Person Of The Year.
Hasn't he won enough?!

But, but why?
Read the full, painstaking story here. Time's article had this to say about his win.
For all of Trump’s public life, tastemakers and intellectuals have dismissed him as a vulgarian and carnival barker, a showman with big flash and little substance. But what those critics never understood was that their disdain gave him strength. For years, he fed off the disrespect and used it to grab more tabloid headlines, to connect to common people.
Now he has upended the leadership of both major political parties and effectively shifted the political direction of the international order. He will soon command history’s most lethal military, along with economic levers that can change the lives of billions. And the people he has to thank are those he calls “the forgotten,” millions of American voters who get paid by the hour in shoes that will never touch these carpets—working folk, regular Janes and Joes, the dots in the distance.
When will 2016's reign of terror end?
