ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he's upset because German Chancellor Angela Merkel was selected as Time Magazine's Person of the Year and he wasn't. "Obviously, I should have been picked The Person of the Year," Trump told a crowd of supporters in New Hampshire on Monday (January 11). Trump suggested that, in view of the sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year's Eve, Merkel was a poor choice for the magazine cover. "I don't know what happened to her. She was doing well. Maybe she got power hungry. Maybe she thought she was invincible. They're taking people--. The crime is astronomical. It's not working. They're having riots now in the street and the German people are now saying 'We've had it; we've had it.' We can't let that happen to us," Trump said. At one point, a heckler interrupted Trump's remarks, saying they were "boring" and that Trump ought to tell a few jokes instead. "Out! Out! Out! Out! Get out of here," Trump commanded to his security personnel as the man was eventually removed.
