Many of us have dealt with elderly parents in some stage of dementia. It's a stew of delusion, belligerance, fantasy, and just plain lies.
So it looks like that's what the Trump family is dealing with. Look at this tweet:
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!

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.

And so did the Twitter world:
The #Vatican called a few years ago and told me I was probably going to end up being appointed Pope by the Cardinal conclave but I would have to agree to infallibility and join Catholicism. I said probably, did Jesus probably walk on water? So -- no go. #TimeMagazine https://t.co/FmFhv61OPc

If they want Donnie to blow his transmission and fry the entire block, just have #TIMEmagazine choose president Obama.

But seriously, don't be distracted by his #TimeMagazine person of the year post. Something big is brewing. It rhymes with Flynn. Ok, it is Flynn.

He gets worked up over Time Magazine's Man of the Year Award almost every year. Like clockwork. pic.twitter.com/27TnDTguAD

#TimeMagazine I would love to see Robert Mueller Time's person of the year. Trump is insane and should be impeach, he is a real danger to national security. Republican party needs to open their eyes, quickly!!!

Mr. President, just to clarify things, I wanted to offer a few statistics. Number of times you were Person of the Year during the 7 years I was editor of Time: 0. Number of times you were on the cover: 0. Number of times you made the Time 100 influentials list: 0. Thanks anyway!

Personally, I think the "person" of the year should be Indivisible. But that's just me. Leave your own nominations in the comments!
