Trump Person Of The Year? Hollywood Snickers, Mark Hamill Offers ‘Jedi’ Bribe

Refresh for updatesDonald Trump’s bizarre, at best premature thanks but no thanks tweet about Time magazine’s Person of the Year cover is drawing an entirely expected wave of online ridicule – and some sincere suggestions on who, exactly, should really take the honors. (One popular choice: Robert Mueller.)

The New York Times, tweets Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named comedienne of the year but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass.”

Star WarsMark Hamill says he was offered the cover, but only if he’d leak “major #Ep8 spoilers.” Hamill didn’t have a problem with revealing secrets about The Last Jedi prior to its Dec. 15 release, but just couldn’t handle playing second fiddle to Trump.

And MSNBC’s Joy Reid signaled her reaction to the Trump tweet with a classic Hollywood GIF: Bette Davis’ Baby Jane Hudson giggling like a maniac. (After the chuckle, Reid offers her real choice for the Time cover: Mueller).

Take a look at the tweets (jump to the bottom to see the Trump post that started it all, along with Time’s rebuttal). The magazine will announce its cover choice Dec. 6.

Deadline will add to this list as warranted…

Time Magazine called to say that I was DEFINITELY going to be named "Man (Person) of the Year" but I would have to agree to leak major #Ep8 spoilers. I said "no problem", but then they told me you turned it down and now I don't want it anymore. Thanks anyway! https://t.co/0tPGr1cNEM

Mama it's so weird. They just called me to say I'm the grossest mom of the year because I haven't washed my hair in a week. Awesome

I don’t know who’ll be Time’s 2017 Person of the Year, but I must say it would be nice if Robert Mueller turns out to be Time’s 2018 Person of the Year.

Trump claims he turned down being Time magazine's "Man of the Year" but he's getting the same title from "Psychology Today."

You can always print yourself another fake cover.

I gotta say I think @HillaryClinton being @Time’s Person of the Year may drive Trump’s insanity to a level no one could ever even fathom. They should do it.

Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2017 should be Black Women.

I can't wait for Christopher Plummer to be @TIME's Person Of the Year Standing In For Another Person.

Time Magazine called me a few weeks ago too. This led to us texting and then, of course, sexting. We hooked up a few times, which was fun. But, ultimately, it didn't seem like an ideal match. It's too bad though because Time Magazine is really hot. Oh well. Thanks anyway!

Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.
