In yet another astounding show of selfish egotism, the President of the United States just took to Twitter to brag about how he isn’t going to be TIME Magazine’s Man of the Year.
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

This is an unheard of level of “mad online.” He most likely found out that he wasn’t going to be the Man of the Year and like a spoiled child who wasn’t invited to a birthday party, declared that he didn’t even want it anyway.
There is a lot to work with here but maybe the best part is how he refuses to accept that the award has not been called “Man” of the year for 18 years pic.twitter.com/Ngr9yRG0Jl

After spending the last three days golfing and neglecting the nation, it’s distressing to see that he isn’t spending his Friday afternoon doing anything more productive than raging about a magazine award that he shares with men like Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin – but sadly not surprising.
All eyes are now squarely focused on TIME Magazine to see who they will bestow the prestigious award to – and to see whether or not the President will take to Twitter to complain about that too.
