Trump, Obama tie for Americans' most-admired man
President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama have tied for the title of Americans’ most admired man, according to Gallup’s annual survey — marking the first time the current commander in chief has achieved the distinction and the 12th consecutive first-place showing for his immediate predecessor.

Out of all the people in the world that could have been picked..................glorious.


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Eighteen percent of U.S. adults nominated Trump when asked which man “living today in any part of the world” they admired most, while another 18 percent identified the most recent Democratic president. 

The results of the poll, conducted Dec. 2-15, were split sharply along party lines, with 45 percent of Republicans selecting Trump for the honor and 41 percent of Democrats opting for Obama. 

Trump captured only 2 percent Democratic and 10 percent independent support, while Obama garnered 3 percent support from GOP respondents and 12 percent from independents.
Last year, 13 percent of Americans chose Trump as the most admired man, and 14 percent picked him in 2017, the first year of his presidency. He placed second to Obama in both surveys. 
Apart from the two presidents, no other man attained the votes of more than 2 percent of those questioned in the 2019 poll. 
Rounding out the list of Americans’ top 10 most admired men are former President Jimmy Carter, technology entrepreneur Elon Musk, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Pope Francis, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, California Rep. Adam Schiff, the Dalai Lama and investor Warren Buffett. 

Among Americans’ most admired women, former first lady Michelle Obama claimed the prize spot for the second year running, and was the only woman to achieve double-digit support.
The other top-ranking women include first lady Melania Trump, former talk show host Oprah Winfrey, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton, climate activist Greta Thunberg, Queen Elizabeth II, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

So he went from 2nd place to tied for first and that's a "win"? Hilarious. The article also points out:

"Americans’ most admired women, former first lady Michelle Obama claimed the prize spot for the second year running".

So Obama is as admired overall, more admired by Independents and Obama even has more Republicans approval than Trump has Democrat approval.

"Trump captured only 2 percent Democratic and 10 percent independent support, while Obama garnered 3 percent support from GOP respondents and 12 percent from independents."

Trump sycophants trying to frame this a big win is just really comical. He's tied with their most hated enemy, a President who most of them rank dead last, how can that be a win in their book?

When Republicans admire a man who has cheated on all three of his wives, admitted in his own words that he doesn't "even wait" for consent, he just starts kissing women he finds attractive and grabbing them by the pussy, has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual assault, has been caught in over 15,000 lies since taking office, was caught paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to multiple porn stars during the campaign to keep them quiet about his numerous affairs and his coconspirator is already serving jail time, and most recently was caught using millions in congressionally approved military funds for a foreign ally to force them to publicly announce investigations into one of his most likely political opponents in 2020 which is a clear abuse of power for personal political gain, what does that say about Republicans?

I don't think that is what is unique about this poll. Both of those men are extremely controversial and yet they had strong support.

What liberals are instructed to do is give credit to Obama for everything positive during his administration (there wasn't much), and now during the entirety of the Trump administration.

On the flip side, they are also told to blame Bush and Trump for everything negative (there was much) during his administration.

They are obeying their handlers well.

No Trump bump to unemployment numbers, the recovery that started under Obama continued at roughly the same rate.  In fact, under Trump was a slight leveling out.

You keep telling yourself whatever nonsense you need to in order to continue supporting the worst most corrupt President in US history. This will continue to be made more clear as more and more gets exposed, especially after he leaves office just like what happened with Nixon. The facts just kept coming out, and sure, maybe it will be 30 years from now we'll get access to his actual phone calls like we did last year with Nixon and Reagans call where Republican hero Ronald Reagan called black attendees to the UN conference "monkeys" and claimed they must be uncomfortable from wearing shoes to which Nixon laughs hysterically. I have no doubt there are even worse more blatantly racist and likely misogynist calls and records from Trump that will be eventually released and history will view Trump as the orange clown mill stone that Republicans tied around their necks and threw in the ocean claiming their God will somehow make it float. If it weren't so sad for America it would be really hilarious to watch these Trump loyalists to continue to defend the indefensible.

President Obama is admired around the world.

BF, Obama won this 'contest' every single one of the 8 years he was president. 

This is the first time Trump has "won"  (tied)  even though he has been president for three years. 

Case closed.

What other zingers have you got up your sleeve?

For years all those articles about minority unemployment and the Trump fixed that for you and you are ungrateful.

Stagnate wages in the middle class and the wage gap? He fixed that too.

At least say thank you.

former first lady Michelle Obama claimed the prize spot for the second year running

For what? I'm being honest. What is she doing that is so admirable? To me, any of these people:

former talk show host Oprah Winfrey, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton, climate activist Greta Thunberg, Queen Elizabeth II, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

make more sense as a selection. Even Melania would make more sense just because she's the current First Lady. However, as a general rule, I don't think being First Lady, by itself, makes anyone admirable.

They said they love Trump so no matter what he does now, they have to double down and they're going to try and put a smile on their faces and proclaim its everyone else who's crazy for not loving such a chewy. gristly bull testicle in their mouth.

I've never said I loved Trump or Rocky Mountain oysters for that matter. I have said that it was the impossible to stomach or swallow the platter full of bullshit that the Democrats were serving last election. So far it looks like they will not be serving anything more palatable this time either.

I think what gets me is one has been impeached by the House for delaying military aid to Ukraine and the other is still walking around after doing this.....

The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook

An ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah's billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House's desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.

A global threat emerges

How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion.

I n its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.

The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.

Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.

They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.
