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.
Truth. Time alluded to the importance of truth.
Remember the Washington Post journalist who took it upon himself to list all the lies Trump said every day during the elections?
Yeah, there were double-digit days.
Want to know who else won the title?

Here's the cover:
In 1938, Adolf Hitler won Time's Man of the Year (the award changed to 'Person of the Year' in 1999).
You know, the same person responsible for the death of over six million innocent Jewish people and other minorities.
