Most Trash TIME Person of the Year – Joseph Stalin (1939)
Why? It’s scary that Stalin isn’t a shoe-in for the worst ever nominee, but here’s a quick breakdown. Stalin not only rose to dictatorship and had near-absolute power in the 1930s, but was responsible for the Great Purge. In the span of two years, millions were purged by the police whom were considered counter-revolutionaries and enemies of the people by the leadership of the Soviet Union. He was also 5’4,” which is what earned him the nickname, “the little squirt.” Which also was probably the reason he actually changed from his birth name, Iosif Djugashvili to Stalin which means “steel.”
Man, I thought Trump could be the most trash, but at least Trump is not a narcissistic tunnel-eyed dictator seeking to eliminate a decidedly dangerous group of peop..damnit
Most Trash TIME Person of the Year – Charles Lindbergh
Why? There wasn’t a memo that everyone had to pick Hitler right? And we’re sure that the Property Brothers have never been TIME Person of the Year? Ok, well, as long as those two facts are true then I nominate the very first TIME Person of the Year as the most trash, Charles Lindbergh.
First off, he was only chosen because the TIME staff was bummed out that they somehow managed not to have him on the cover after his flight across the Atlantic, one of the centuries most hardo endeavors.
Lindbergh also went on to condemn World War II, not because he loved peace, but because he believed “survival of the white race was more important than the survival of democracy in Europe”… and he was (obviously) viewed as a Nazi sympathizer…

Most Trash TIME Person of the Year - Adolf Hitler (1938)
Why? Because are you fucking kidding me?
Most Trash TIME Person of the Year – You (2006)
Why? You is just a lazy choice by Time. Nothing else happened in 2006 that was better than 2006 version me? I think I won a youth basketball tournament in 2006 so I guess I was a pretty big deal. Bigger than the world cup that year that’s for sure.
Most Trash TIME Person of the Year - Richard Nixon (1971)
Let’s clarify that P.O.Y stands for Planet of the Year, and not Person. It’s the most trash because the Earth does have the most trash, which is the point of the nomination, but how embarrassing would that be if we lost to a different planet? We are well aware Earth is the best planet, TIME. Check back in 50 years.
That’s it. Which TIME Person of the Year do you consider the most trash? Comment below.
