Donald Trump Claims He Rejected TIME’s Person of the Year and Stars Have Hilarious Reactions

Despite being named TIME’s Person of the Year in 2016, President Donald Trump is taking himself out of the running for 2017 and everyone is talking about it.

The 71-year-old Commander in Chief tweeted that the magazine had “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.”

Trump continued, writing, “I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”

The publication later responded to his tweet making it clear that Trump was mistaken, “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.”

While Trump received the title last year (and made visitors to his golf clubs believed he’d been on the cover before in fake TIME covers that lined his walls) celebrities couldn’t help but tweet their own two cents on the matter on Friday night.

Julia Louis Dreyfus tweeted, “@nytimes 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. Thanks anyway! @andy_murray.”

Christina Applegate responded to Dreyfus, tweeting, “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.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Mark Hamill also joked he was contacted by TIME, but only on the condition that he reveal movie spoilers before the Dec. 15 release of the highly-anticipated film.

“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,” Hamill tweeted. “I said “no problem”, but then they told me you turned it down and now I don’t want it anymore. Thanks anyway!”

Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette had a suggestion for Trump, tweeting, “You can always print yourself another fake cover.”

Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff, profession tennis player Andy Murray, and Dan Pfeiffer who was former senior adviser to Barack Obama also tweeted responses to the president either criticizing him or making a joke based on his original tweet.

TIME’s Person of the Year will be revealed on Dec. 6.
