Dagen McDowell, Charles Payne, Piers Morgan and more slammed Time magazine for picking a “politician” as “Person of the Year” during a year consumed by the coronavirus outbreak.
“If you think any politician is most deserving of accolades and awards THIS YEAR, you really need to go talk to somebody,” McDowell, the Fox News business correspondent, tweeted Friday after Time named Joe Biden and Kamala Harris its “Person of the Year.” (RELATED: Bette Midler And Other Celebs Hit Social Media To Slam Trump’s July 4th ‘Salute To Himself’)

“Time magazine somehow missed you but I want to take a moment to thank America’s front line workers because each of you deserve Person of the Year,” Payne, the Fox Business Network contributor, tweeted, along with a list of who the magazine could’ve included instead.
His suggestions included recognizing people such as, “Ambulance drivers, Nurses, Doctors, Cashiers,” and many more. (RELATED: Rosie O’Donnell, Celebs Continue to Slam Trump Following Executive Order To Keep Families Together On Border)

And they weren’t alone. Many other comments on social media slammed the outlet for “the wrong call” during the pandemic.
Wrong call. They haven’t done anything yet. You should have given it to the frontline health care workers. https://t.co/Y0qVsIizas

If I were Biden and Harris I would put out a statement today and say “we don’t deserve this yet, until we have actually done something, and the folks who should have gotten it are the healthcare workers, and folks on the front line of getting us through Covid.” https://t.co/QhEq9oo364

I get that the magazine is trying to seem hip and appeal to zoomers and millennials, but this is such obvious pandering. https://t.co/UI6r2k2ryE
