Dec. 10 2018

Time magazine named Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin the Man of the Year in back to back years in the 1930s.

So without further ado, here's their list of nominees for 2018, this time for Person of the Year (the title changed in 1999).

The 10 finalists are:

Christine Blasey Ford

The loopy California psychology professor blasted onto the scene when she alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh groped her 36 years ago. She quickly became a cause celeb — even though none of her allegations were ever corroborated by anyone, including those she said attended a drunken high school party where the groping allegedly happened. A GoFundMe page collected more than $700,000 for her and she's reportedly being courted to write a book.

Robert Mueller

The former FBI director has been conducting an investigation for nearly 18 months into allegations that President Trump and Russians colluded to influence the 2016 presidential election. So far the probe has turned up nothing to indicate Trump was involved, but since special counsel Mueller is still at it — and because he was runner-up for Time's 2017 Person of the Year — he makes the list again.

Ryan Coogler

"Director Ryan Coogler, 32, created this year’s phenomenally successful Marvel film Black Panther. The superhero movie, set in the fictional African country of Wakanda, featured a largely black cast and had the third-highest grossing U.S. release of all time," Time writes.

 

Valin says: Well they got one right.

President Trump

"The 45th president of the U.S., and TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year, marked his second year in office through navigating crises involving both himself and his staff, attacking an encircling investigation implicating people close to him, and enacting several controversial policies, ranging from separations at the border to an international trade war with China," Time writes.

But you might know him as the guy who infused confidence in the U.S. markets, pumped the economy to record highs and the unemployment rate to record lows, who stood fast in the face of pressure to join the globalizers and who is battling to secure America's borders. Maybe Time just forgot to mention all that.
