TIME Magazine Announces Person of the Year: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in Surprise, Beat Fauci and Black Lives Matter


TIME magazine had four choices for the 2020 Person of the Year: the good– Joe Biden; the evil, Donald Trump; the causes– Black Lives Matter, or the Front Line Health Care Workers and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The “winner”? Well, when you heard that Bruce Springsteen was going to make the announcement, you knew it wasn’t Trump.

It’s Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. This really sticks it to Donald Trump.

I lost my bet. I thought it would be Fauci and the health care workers. To go with Biden and Harris is a real stand for Time and editor Ed Felsenthal. Good for them!
