Duterte And Trump Tied For TIME’s 2016 Person Of The Year

IMG_6936.PNGNEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – He was called the Donald Trump of the Philippines.  He was called the Rodrigo Duterte of America.  Whichever it is, it doesn’t matter now.  Both are elected presidents of their respective countries.

Both men are considered “foul-mouthed,” have been accused of misogyny, have uttered controversial statements, like to flip-flop, hated or liked depending on who you ask., and are non-traditional politicians.

2016 will go down in history as the year of controversial elections and political personalities that have dominated the news and headlines. That goes for the Philippines and the U.S.

It is a no-brainer that the editors of TIME Magazine would choose one of these men to be their 2016 Person of the Year.  But it wasn’t easy, and they couldn’t pick one, so they decided it was a tie.

Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.  Persons of the Year.

A year that many now think will live in infamy.
