Are you afraid of that rascal Trump? Sorry — that monster with the head and tail of a bull that eats people?
Time, as you may know, has selected 2020’s “Person of the Year.”
The winner: Joe Harris.
Or Kamala Biden.
This year, it’s a twofer: Both Democrats made the cover.
Per the magazine, J and K have — thank heavens — “offered restoration and renewal in a single ticket.”
That’s really somethin’, and they’ve got their work cut out for ’em:
Defeating the Minotaur was one thing; finding the way out of the labyrinth is another.
Remember that time Trump was looking for the eye of Horace?
Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States:
And that time he fought Pete Buttigieg?–
You may also recall the very real fact that The Donald was previously a pro wrestler:
As reported by The Daily Wire, Time contributor Charlotte Alter’s writer father has penned books on Obama and Jimmy Carter
If Charlotte ever offers one on Trump, find it in the horror section:
They said he was too old, too unsteady, too boring. That his pledge to restore the “soul of the nation” felt like antiquated hokum at a moment when Hurricane Trump was tearing through America, ripping through institutions, chewing up norms and spitting them out.
The piece quotes Biden’s assertion that Trump is hate and he is not:
“I got widely criticized saying that we had to not greet Trump with a clenched fist but with more of an open hand. That we weren’t going to respond to hate with hate.”
The Wire notes Joe was keen on making that distinction:
As far back as July, Biden stated of Trump, “The way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening… No sitting president has ever done this. Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed, they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”
What do you think of Time’s combo deal? The dynamic duo’s ready to make the country anew.
Meanwhile, however — according to Charlotte — there’s liable to be leftover monstrous mayhem.
More on the minotaur:
Trump is waging information warfare against his own people, the first President in history to openly subvert the peaceful transfer of power. The country has reached a grim new milestone: more than 3,000 COVID-19 deaths in one day. Millions of children are falling behind in their education; millions of parents are out of work. There is not only a COVID-19 crisis and an economic crisis to solve, but also “a long overdue reckoning on racial injustice and a climate crisis,” Harris says. “We have to be able to multitask.”
So goes it for America’s “restoration and renewal.”
