Twitter Users Wonder if Time Named Trump Person of the Year in Homage to Hitler


A few days ago, the New York Times quietly slid the word “timely” into a description of a book about Adolf Hitler‘s rise, leading to speculation that they were implying President-elect Donald Trump could be the next Hitler. Today, Time named Trump their Person of the Year…

…just like they did with Hitler in 1938.

That didn’t go unnoticed. In fact, some have suggested that this was a very intentional comparison.

Within the article, there were references to the neo-Nazis who have rallied around the President-elect.

It could be argued that the speculation fulfilled Godwin’s Law or that Time itself fulfilled it. Still, there are more theories to consider than Trump-as-Hitler. How about Trump-as-Devil?

Can’t please them all.
