Congratulations Donald Trump! You have been named as both a prime motivation for the Time Person of the Year, and a harasser partially responsible for the #MeToo movement. The Person of the Year for 2017 are the “Silence Breakers,” people like Uber engineer Susan Fowler and Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan and Taylor Swift and Terry Crews, people who risked their careers and spoke out against sexual harassment. But they are just the recognizable faces of the movement, which encompasses women and men from “all races, all income classes, all occupations and virtually all corners of the globe. They might labor in California fields, or behind the front desk at New York City’s regal Plaza Hotel, or in the European Parliament. They’re part of a movement that has no formal name. But now they have a voice.”

Donald Trump gets mentioned, but obviously not in the way he might have liked:

That Donald Trump could express himself that way and still be elected President is part of what stoked the rage that fueled the Women’s March the day after his Inauguration. It’s why women seized on that crude word as the emblem of the protest that dwarfed Trump’s Inauguration crowd size. “All social movements have highly visible precipitating factors,” says Aldon Morris, a professor of sociology at Northwestern University. “In this case, you had Harvey Weinstein, and before that you had Trump.”

Dollars to donuts, he still somehow takes credit for it.
