Huff Post — President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday bragged about being named Time magazine’s Person of the Year, but criticized the title of the honor as “politically correct.”
“I was lucky enough to receive the Time Person of the Year,” Trump said in Des Moines, Iowa, the third rally on his “Thank You” victory tour. “They used to call it ‘Man of the Year,’ but they can’t do that anymore, so they call it ‘person.’ They want to be politically correct. That’s OK.”
First off this went down on Trump’s historical “victory tour.” Such a next-level move to take a victory lap. I love it/also believe this adds to the theory that The Donald believes there’s just a perpetual campaign and never any true governing.
Now, you might think Trump is or isn’t a lot of things but he definitely IS an alpha. He’s got that alpha mentality. Being ‘person’ of the year isn’t enough for him. Too soft. Too inclusive. He needs “MAN” of the year and he needs it now. Being ‘person’ of the year means you’re looped in with all those women and shit. The Donald doesn’t want that. This is a man’s game, to take a quote from my friend Pat Maroon.
A lesser person might think Trump would be pumped about this honor, bragging and patting himself on the back. But nope, not the Donald. Never be satisfied. Never settle. Political correctness and the “unfair!” media may have stolen the man of the year honor from Trump, but nobody can take away his victory tour.
