Since President Trump “turned down” the offer to be TIME’s “Person of the Year” (again) they had to go with someone else.
So, who did they pick?
The folks at TIME chose the #MeToo movement as “Person of The Year.”
#MeToo stands for the women who have suddenly come forward to share their sex abuse, rape, and harassment after years of staying silent, while so-called abusive predators were allowed to roam free.
NEW YORK (AP) — The anti-harassment #MeToo movement has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year.
In the wake of revelations about Harvey Weinstein and other men, millions have shared their stories about being sexually harassed and assaulted.
The announcement was made Wednesday on NBC’s “Today” show, where longtime host Matt Lauer was recently fired amid harassment allegations.
Other finalists included President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping and quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
