On Wednesday (Dec. 7, 2016), Time named President-elect Donald Trump 2016’s Person of the Year and people have, um, mixed feelings about it.
While Trump technically meets the criteria for being the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the incredibly polarizing presidential election, we think there are a whole host of people who deserve more recognition than the perpetually orange businessman turned politician. So in no particular order, we’ve rounded up 20 people (and things) we think deserved the prestigious title over the President-to-be.
Harambe did what Trump has yet to do: unite a country.
2. Lady Gaga’s dead aunt Joanne
3. Baby Luna Legend
Baby Luna is the reason we’ve all be blessed with all of the swoon-worthy pictures and videos of John Legend being the best dad in Hollywood. Also, she wore this hot dog costume. That in itself deserves an award.
4. Ken Bone
Honestly, Ken Bone has a better approval rating than the President-elect.

Never has there been and never will there be an American Vice President that has captured the hearts and social media accounts of America. We’ll miss you, Joe.
