Donald Trump is Time's Person of the Year

Via The BBC:

US President-elect Donald Trump has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2016.

The property tycoon and reality TV star completed one of the biggest upsets in political history when he beat Hillary Clinton to the White House. […]

Time’s managing editor Nancy Gibbs said, adding that the choice of Mr Trump was “straightforward”.

Person of the Year implies that the person in question has done something good. Trump has certainly had a huge impact, but he’s not done anything in my mind that qualifies as good.
