Time Magazine Snubs Trump, Names #MeToo 'Silence Breakers' as People of the Year

Participants march against sexual assault and harassment

Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal revealed the cover on Wednesday morning's TODAY show, which features actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler and a woman whose face is obscured, meant to represent the women who haven't yet come forward.

Time has named the women behind the #MeToo movement as their Person of the Year.

The cover shot included a woman partially in the photograph, whose face is not seen.

"This is the just the start, and I've been saying from the beginning that it's not just a moment, it's a movement", Burke said.

Two of the other nominees were also Trump antagonists - former FBI Director and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, along with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Like 2017's shortlist, 2016 also included larger groups, including the CRISPR scientists, who created technology to edit DNA, and the Flint whistleblowers, who exposed lead poisoning in the MI town's water.

"The Silence Breakers" designates a broad range of people, mostly women, from this year's first public accusers of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to those who shared their stories of abuse using the hashtag #MeToo and its foreign language equivalents. His internet innovations have reshaped the landscape of American commerce.

In 2016, then president-elect Donald Trump was named Person of the Year. They are facing deportation as Trump's administration has rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, usually called DACA. His grip on power was solidified last October when the Communist Party voted to include his ideas in the party constitution.

"The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year", a Time spokeswoman told CNN in a statement.

Mohammed bin Salman, 32, was also named to the short list. Time called him the "President of the Divided States of America".
