Trump Loses to Obama as Most Admired Man

Americans named former President Barack Obama the most admired man in the world for the 10th year in a row, making President Donald Trump one of a handful of sitting presidents who have fallen short of that accolade, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. Obama narrowly beat current Trump by three percentage points, with 17 percent of respondents naming him the most admired man in the world to Trump's 14 percent. ... Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was Americans' most admired woman in the world, according to the poll. She beat former first lady Michelle Obama by two percentage points, with 9 percent of respondents choosing Clinton. Only one percent of respondents did the same for current first lady Melania Trump.

Obama is more widely admired than Trump. No executive order can fix that.

no one sane "admires" Trump, not even on the Right.

Obama's Fault!

Give me a ------- break. Other than a child, who actually "admires" Donald Trump. It is just ridiculous.

Oh, you said "other than a child".

My bad.

#6 I'm at a complicated question. Newsworthy or funny. I know how about BOTH.

This lovefest for Barry sure didn't translate into anything positive for Hillary, even though Obama did state that it would be a "personal insult" to his legacy if she wasn't elected. You, his fans, insulted him, and let him down. Shame on you slackers.

On a related note, here is how Prince Harry can resolve his sticky problem of wedding guests:
-invite BOTH The Dotard and Obama
-induce Obama to openly declare that he and Michelle will attend
-Trump will then beg off, citing a scheduling conflict
-A rockin' great time will be had by all wedding-goers...

"This lovefest for Barry sure didn't translate into anything positive for Hillary,"

yeah! What Crookedfish said!

Well, except for her winning that whole popular vote thingy by 3 million votes and her getting free rent in your head for life.

"-invite BOTH The Dotard and Obama"

I don't know about that, CAT. Melania dissed the Queen the last time the Trumps were in London together. Melania wanted to meet the Queen but expected the Queen to do the asking. Tsk, tsk! Big faux pas. That phone call never came.

Also, British Parliament said no state dinner for Donald Trump. I don't think they like him very much over there.

But of course you are right. It would be bad form not to invite Trump. Maybe Trump could schedule a tee-off time for that date.

You have to realize that constantly repeating this irrelevant nonsense doesn't change the fact that "Dances With Squirrels" Hillary ended up in the woods, while Trump still sits as president. I mean, unless you're just brain dead. Maybe you should move all your eggs into the "Trump-Russia-Collusion-or-Something-Like-That" basket.

You have to realize that constantly repeating this irrelevant nonsense...

LOL Did I strke a nerve?

That "irrelevant nonsense" as you call it is just a simple fact. A fact Trump and his turd polishers can never escape. Like the size of his inauguration crowds. Or his hands. Or the fact that he could not Repeal and Replace his way out of a wet paper bag.

And if Trump's irrelevant birther nonsense can go on and on and on, ad nauseum for years you can certainly put up with us reminding you that Hillary won the popular vote (did I mention she won the popular vote by a 3 million votes?)

And don't worry your other little nerve about the whole collusion thing.

That will take care of itself. No effort on my part required.

Except to sit back make the popcorn and enjoy the Greatest Show on Earth.

If it was close, the contest is BS.

And Cookedfish is defending Orange Adolf's tiny man hammer, so expected. I wonder if cookedfish is dumb enough to stump for Dotard for free? Me thinks so!

1. Don't invite arrogant blow hards who kiss Putin's ass.

Trump loses to smallpox as most admired man. Why is this news?
