(Newser) Time is out with its Person of the Year, and it's none other than Donald Trump. "The revolution he stirred feels fully American, with its echoes of populists past, of Andrew Jackson and Huey Long and, at its most sinister, Joe McCarthy and Charles Coughlin," writes Nancy Gibbs in the explanation. The magazine revealed the pick Wednesday morning. "To be on the cover of Time as Person of the Year is a tremendous honor," Trump told Matt Lauer on Today. It's actually his 10th time on the cover, though nine of those have come since August 2015. Mark Zuckerberg and gymnast Simone Biles were among those on the short list.
