British tennis star took down President Donald Trump in one tweet over the weekend and to say it was well received would be an understatement.
Trump faced comical whiplash after he tweeted that he'd kind of rejected a "non-official" offer to be named Time Magazine's “Person of the Year” for 2017.
Time Magazine 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. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017
How gracious of him. Though it seems a bit unlikely as voting is still going on for another week. Time, let us all know real quick what the deal was.
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.— TIME (@TIME) November 25, 2017
Andy Murray brilliantly wasted no moment in responding.
Bbc just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named sports personality 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 (@andy_murray) November 24, 2017
The three-time Grand Slam tournament winner’s post immediately went viral, and was shared more than 26,000 times within the first eight hours of it being posted online.
The responses were EPIC!
This tweet is perfection.— Nadal News (@nadalnews) November 24, 2017
Ironically this tweet should be why you would actually win it.— Stephen Grant (@stephencgrant) November 25, 2017
Tweet of the day thanks for that humor!— Alex Morgan (@alexmorgan13) November 25, 2017
That sounds like game-set-match! No? Feels like Andy maybe the magazine's 2018 Person.
Trump was 2016's Person of the Year and there is still "time" to make him 2017's.
At the moment Taylor Swift and the #MeToo movement are in the lead. Online voting continues until December 3rd. So for the love of GOD.... GO VOTE!
