So, it’s safe to say Donald J. Trump is not only the person of the year in 2017. He’s a force of nature that will continue to overshadow the competition for years to come.
Maybe he’s the person of the decade.
Maybe he’s the person of the century.
Maybe he’s the person of the millennium.
Person of the year, however, would be a giant, anti-climactic understatement.
There’s no neutral ground when it comes to Trump.
Nobody is ambivalent about him – unless they are unconscious.
It’s hard to imagine a person who raises such passionate positive and negative response.
Has any president in American history evoked more love and hate?
Has any raised expectations for a brighter future or more certainty about a catastrophic one?
