Obama And Hillary Top 2017 Most-Admired List

Stand by for a screaming orange meltdown.

Gallup reports:

Americans once again are most likely to name Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as the man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most, as they have for the past 10 years. The pair retain their titles this year, although by much narrower margins than in the past. Obama edges out Donald Trump, 17% to 14%, while Clinton edges out Michelle Obama, 9% to 7%.

The 2017 survey marks the 16th consecutive year Clinton has been the most admired woman. She has held the title 22 times in total, more than anyone else. Eleanor Roosevelt is second with 13 wins.

Obama has now been named the most admired man 10 times, trailing only Dwight Eisenhower, who earned the distinction 12 times. Obama won all eight years he was president, plus 2008 — the year he was first elected — and this year, his first as a former president.

    We’ll be at war with North Korea just as soon as someone slips up and mentions it to Trump.

      well at least NK is only a Par 9…………

    But according to twitter……….

  • bkmn

    Orange is going to be red.

  • Chucktech

    How appalling it is that Trump is #2.

    • Jonathan Smith

      AND he has lost to Obama 5 years running.

      • CanuckDon

        No wonder he keeps looking for that poisoned apple.

    • Todd20036

      Rather appropriate, actually.

      • Chucktech

        Rather telling of the deplorability of ‘Murikins, actually.

      • Chucktech

        Oh! You must mean Trump IS a number 2…

    • Tawreos

      He has always been #2 in my view

    • MonochromeMouse

      At first I was upset about that but then I thought about it, being second, especially second to Obama, will piss him off more than being last or not on the list at all, he’s #2 so he can’t insist the list was fake or biased like he could if he was dead last. Most people who aren’t narcissists would consider being the second most admired person an honor, trump and other narcissists would see it as losing because everything is a competition.

      Exactly. Very disappointing.

  • Ranger One

    Bitter orange in the mouth will make what you do appreciate most: a real person committed to public service, as opposed to a rich brat who get boners from applause.

  • Lazycrockett

    I honestly don’t see how anyone could admire the buffoonery of an orange bag of shit.

        We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

        They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

        Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.

        I should like to have it said of my first Administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match. I should like to have it said of my second Administration that in it these forces met their master.

            I don’t know if there is a single fucking politician left in this godforsaken country who would have the GUTS to make this speech today, who would say he or she WELCOMES the hatred of the gangster oligarchs!

            We have gone from Olympus with the likes of Franklin Delano Roosevelt into the SEWER of total CORRUPTION with Trump; and there is not one major voice in a position of power–one major elected voice–that, making a solid case from all the AMPLE evidence on hand, leads the charge to DEMAND this liar and thief’s removal from office, or, failing that, access to his tax returns and other financial records after the passage of that RAPE and PILLAGE bill from which he stands to gain SO MUCH at the expense of SO MANY, not ONE voice that demands daily he divest from his businesses and that Congress hold him accountable for his GROSS violations of the Emoluments Clause!

        • Professor Barnhardt

          Too many three-syllable words. Who can follow anything that complicated?

    • Chucktech

      (Pssst! Donnie! It’s Obama!)

    • BeaverTales

      Teddy Roosevelt or Lincoln for me

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      The cartoonist didn’t need to label Hatch. I recognized him immediately. That’s a pretty good caricature.

      • danolgb

        Bagley has had many.. many years drawing Hatch.

  • HoneyBoySmith


    No, that’s not right. I shouldn’t say that.

    Trump is no laughing matter.

    He’s not only been a terrible disaster for this country, but he’s also been the greatest embarrassment in the modern history of the United States.

  • unclemike

    If you don’t count all the illegals that voted, Trump wins 100% 🙄

    • Chucktech

      Rigged vote. Very unfair. That’s what people are saying.

      • unclemike

        All the best people are saying this. Everyone tells me.

  • BeaverTales

    I would have voted for the Queen or Michelle Obama. I would have agreed that Barack was the best choice of the men named above.

  • margaretpoa

    I would have won that poll except for the three million votes cast for the Kenyan and CROOKED HILLARY by ILLEGALS! FAKE NEWS!

  • Treant

    It’s nice to know that 99% of the country knows about Melanoma Trump and her whoring ways. But it’s too bad only 86% of the nation knows about Dumpster.

    Still, I certainly agree with Obama and H. Clinton as the most admired. They’re certainly high on my list!

  • JT

    Drumpf tops the most despised list.

  • Silver Badger

    How on earth did trump come in second. How did he even make the list?

    • Treant

      The planet is full of idiots.

    • kanehau

      Russian bots.

    • CanuckDon

      And if you look at the bottom of the men’s list, you’ll see “Mike Pence”….Mike friggin’ Pence?????

  • hdtex
  • Hank
  • Bad Tom

    And second to Hillary Clinton was Michelle Obama!
    Not bad. Not bad at all.

  • JWC

    Oh Mr Trump::: NYAH NYAH ne NAYAh NAYAH

  • Rex

    I’ve got a list that Trump’s on, and he’s number one.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Hillary is again number one and yet…

    • GanymedeRenard

      But her emails!

    • Guess?

      And Trump is still a Number Two.

    • JackNasty

      At number one with nIne percent. That’s yuuuuuuuge!

  • ChrisInKansas

    NIKKI HALEY?????

    • Sam_Handwich

    • Piernudo15

      Yeah, thats a surprise. So is the depressing fact that more people admire Trump than the pope.

      • Jonathan Smith

        what’s to admire about the pope?

  • Slippy_World
  • Ninja0980

    ANgry tweets in 3,2,1..

  • JackNasty

    NIne percent admire Hillary, wow!

    The Clintons top my list of people who should go away. Hillary’s approval is now at 36% just slightly lower than Donald Trump’s. Haven’t the Clintons done enough damage?

    Vanity Fair offers Hillary Clinton these thoughtful New Year’s resolutions:


    • JackNasty

      Love your cherry picked list complete with Clintonista misrepresentations.

      You left out DOMA, NAFTA, extreme welfare cuts, the war in Iraq, etc., etc., etc., and the fact Hillary was qualified she didn’t have to campaign in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

      • That you still use Clintonista after all this time tells me I shouldn’t bother to give a fuck about your opinion.

        • JackNasty

          The fact that you support an arrogant, corrupt, war-mongering, lying, homophobe says a lot about your values.

          • danolgb

            So, about those times Bernie voted to authorize regime change in Iraq and his continual support for the F35..

          • JackNasty

            We weren’t discussing Bernie Sanders.

            By the way, I held my nose and voted for Hillary.

            That said, the Clintonista belief that “what about Bernie” is a trump card they can drop into a conversation that rationalizes everything the Clintons have done is beyond all reason.

          • danolgb

            We weren’t? The original comment was indeed discussing Bernie Sanders and you took exception to it. I know you Sanders concern-trolls are about as bright as Trump supporters, but do try to keep up with your own stupid comments.

          • JackNasty

            Wrong, The article is about Hillary, Obama, and public admiration for them. It’s not about Berne. You added the subject with various misrepresentations from a cherry picked ad for Hillary.

          • danolgb

            Try again.

          • evan_or

            They don’t get a second chance with me. NastyFuck, or StupidJack or whatever the hell it calls itself is long since blocked. As if we aren’t aware of Hillary’s flaws. Bite me.

  • kaydenpat

    If not for those illegal immigrants voting, Trump would have been number one. /s

  • JackNasty

    I miss Obama.

    Excellent News!
