Colin Kaepernick a finalist for Time's 2017 Person of the Year

The group consists of thousands of immigrants who came to the United States with their parents in hope for a better life.

Among the finalists are one of the world's most notorious leaders, the women behind the year's biggest cultural reckoning and - whether he wants it or not - President Trump.

Time magazine has announced its shortlist for its Person of the Year.

President Trump was next, a little over an hour after he managed to make headlines once again by officially endorsing Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore despite accusations that he sexually molested a girl when she was 14 and assaulted another female was she was 16 in a restaurant parking lot.

The #MeToo movement started a year ago after a recording was released of Donald Trump joking about sexual assault during a taping of Access Hollywood.

Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade Framework With Cardinals, Giants
The Marlins are reportedly only willing to pick up $45 million of Stanton's contract to make the deal work. Stanton would help the Giants in the home run department as they finished dead last in home runs in 2017.

Time announced who they're considering for 2017's Person of the Year on the December 4 episode of the Today show, and it's a pretty mixed bag. The investigation has led to charges against four individuals including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Kaepernick has been a lightning rod in the NFL as his decision to kneel before the playing of the national anthem in protesting racial inequality and police brutality last season brought a wave of followers and criticism.

"The "#MeToo" Movement: The online movement began amid accusations of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and several other industries. Two weeks ago, he claimed to have turned down an offer for this year's honor.

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, has cracked down businessmen and members of the royal family who have been accused of corruption, according to Time. "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway", the President wrote on his personal Twitter, which has also been the source of major controversy and feuds involving him since his election. He was granted a second five-year term and has been added to the Communist Party's constitution, Time reported.

Time Person of the Year acquaints a commander-in-chief with odd bedfellows.
