TIME Magazine gets huge critical backlash for naming Biden, Harris as “Person of the Year”

Liberal leaning TIME is facing heat for selecting top Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the magazine’s “person of the year,” and ignoring the frontline workers, vaccine scientists, and activists who have actually had an impact on 2020.  

Here are the critical responses from conservatives and liberals mocking TIME’s politically motivated picks.

Biden’s basement

One Twitter user replied, “With all due respect, Biden spent much of the year in a basement and won what was a referendum on the other guy. Harris was even less visible as a VP nominee after badly losing the primary.”

What about the actual heroes of 2020?

One commenter listed the people that actually had an impact in 2020: “Scientists who developed vaccines in record shattering time, frontline workers who risked their lives during COVID, Jacinda Adern, BLM activists.”

Boot-licking media

Former GOP Senate candidate Elisa Martinez wrote: “Might as well give them both a Nobel Peace Prize, an Oscar and Grammy for their “breathtaking” non-leadership. Can the corporate media act any more boot-licking pathetic?”

Chinese influence

One replier manipulated the cover to add Chinese president Xi Jinping between Biden and Harris.  

Election Thieves

Author Mark Dice wrote: “For stealing the election? That’s messed up.”

 

Time doesn’t care about the people

Journalist Curtis Houck wrote: “Time doesn’t care about you, the people. It’s all about THEM. It’s all about their circles in D.C., LA, and New York. It’s all partisanship for them. Cloaked in “unity” and “equality,” they have nothing but venom for people who aren’t Democrats or on the side of the mob.”

Cult of the Presidency

Conor Freidersdorf, a staff writer for The Atlantic, tweeted: “How are you going to give this to politicians who haven’t taken office yet in a year when doctors risked their lives on a mass scale and vaccine researchers triumphed with unprecedented speed?”

Wrong Vote

Fox LA Anchor Elex Michaelson wrote: “With respect to these politicians, I would have voted for health care workers & other essential workers who’ve sacrificed greatly to keep us all safe.”

Media Buzz

One commenter joked: “They spent 7 days building media buzz about this only to turn around and pick two people who haven’t done anything yet.”

TIME should be ashamed

Podcast host Gianno Caldwell wrote: “Another reason this is a trash publication. Front line workers are the people of the year, not lying politicians. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

If Obama can get the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing then these two clowns can get Person of the Year for being nothing.

Here we go–the usual liberal cheerleading of the Times. So predictable. There are very few media outlets that have any integrity whatsoever.

It’s just the usual liberal cheerleading of Time Magazine. We can thank them for the global cooling scare of the ’70’s. Nothing more than liberal propaganda. There are very few media outlets with integrity.

We are truly living in TERRIBLE times, especially when a Mentally CHALLENGED one who is also VERY CORRUPT – told us that he has a EXTENSIVE Voter FRAUD Organization, AND who was NOT, NEVER elected, is being put in the Highest Office of this country, due to the FRAUD he, himself made US ALL “aware” of….!!!!!

I thought around June or July that the Person of the Year would be Dr. Fauci. I have no idea what I was thinking back then to project what Time magazine would do. Being that Dr. Fauci has been discredited over and over again Time decided to name Dumb and Dumber. That’s par for the course.

Hitler was Time manof the year in 1938, so with the Biden support groups, I find ths selection ironically fitting.
