Liberals are trying to make a big deal that President Donald Trump passed on being named Time magazine’s “Man of the Year”, claiming in predictable fashion that he is lying about it. Trump was, as some might recall, TIME’s 2016 Man of the Year.

Tweeted Trump, “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!”

Now that Trump’s name is officially out of the running whether Time likes it or not, people have been speculating about who else could be chosen as the Man or Woman of the Year. In truly sad fashion, showing just how partisan the “Russia collusion” witch hunt is, hyper-liberal CNN reporter Jim Acosta claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller should get the honor.

Stated Acosta on Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, which he was guest-hosting, “[Trump] was person of the year last year, Rebecca. So isn’t once enough? You know, and also, I mean, let somebody else have a chance. Maybe it’s Robert Mueller’s turn, potentially?”

Answered fellow CNN reporter Rebecca Berg, dutifully, “Maybe it will be Mueller this year. I think that would get under the president’s skin, even more than not being Person of the Year himself. But you’re right, he has been Person of the Year. He’s been featured on Person of the Year magazine editions before. So yeah, maybe somebody else’s turn.” Will you boycott Time if they make Mueller their Man of the Year?
