Dear Trump Voter,
TIME has selected Donald Trump as “person of the year.” Many have pointed out that TIME has also selected Adolf Hitler for the same honor in 1938, Joseph Stalin in 1939, and the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979.
In a piece entitled, The Choice, TIME Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs explains why the Editorial Board selected Trump:
“For reminding America that demagoguery feeds on despair and that truth is only as powerful as the trust in those who speak it, for empowering a hidden electorate by mainstreaming its furies and live-streaming its fears, and for framing tomorrow’s political culture by demolishing yesterday’s, Donald Trump is TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year.”
How do you feel about that?
Very truly yours,
Confused Coastal Elite
