President Obama leaves Donald Trump in the dust as the most admired man of 2016, while Hillary Clinton wins again for the 15th year in row.

Courtesy of Gallup: 

Americans are most likely to name President Barack Obama as the man they admire most in 2016. Twenty-two percent mentioned Obama in response to the open-ended question. President-elect Donald Trump was second at 15%. It is Obama's ninth consecutive win, but the seven-percentage-point margin this year is his narrowest victory yet.

Obama's win over Trump this year is largely a result of the president earning more mentions among Democrats than Trump receives from Republicans. Fifty percent of Democrats named Obama as most admired, compared with 34% of Republicans choosing Trump. 

The remainder of this year's top 10 most admired man list includes Pope Francis, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Rev. Billy Graham, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, The Dalai Lama, former President Bill Clinton, businessman and philanthropist Bill Gates, and Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

I would not be surprised if next year, after Trump has demonstrated what a total fuck up he is, that President Obama might STILL win this category and by an even wider margin.

As for the women:

Americans named Hillary Clinton the Most Admired Woman for the 15th consecutive year and 21st time overall. Since her initial win in 1993 as first lady, Clinton has topped the list every year but 1995 and 1996 (when she finished behind Mother Teresa) and 2001 (behind Laura Bush). Eleanor Roosevelt has the second-most No. 1 finishes among women, at 13. 

First lady Michelle Obama finished second on the Most Admired Woman list this year, tied with 2012 as her best finish. The remainder of the top 10 most admired women include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former and current talk-show hosts Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres, Queen Elizabeth of England, human rights activist Malala Yousafzai, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Okay well it is just pathetic that Sarah Palin still makes this list, even if it is with only 1%.

But wait, isn't there a name missing?

Why didn't future first lady Melania Trump make the list?

Does that mean that prostituting yourself to a disgusting wealthy man in order to live a life of opulence is not considered admirable?

Hmm, who knew?

      it is all about the money in the minds of people who admire him. Somehow they have convinced themselves that because he is a businessman he is “successful” and worthy (despite four bankruptcies and countless lawsuits). The irrational worship of businessmen in our country is out of proportion to their accomplishment a lot of times.

    Trump says he had a ‘nice conversation’ with Obama after Twitter tiff

    PALM BEACH, Fla. — President-elect Donald Trump told Yahoo News he spoke with President Barack Obama on Wednesday after he sent a tweet accusing the White House of using “roadblocks” to prevent a “smooth transition.”

    “He phoned me. We had a very nice conversation,” Trump said, briefly speaking with reporters outside of his Mar-a-Lago estate.

    Yahoo News asked Trump whether he brought up any of his concerns about transition roadblocks with the president. Trump replied by referencing a speech earlier in the day by Secretary of State John Kerry, who he said Israel was undermining the Middle East peace process by building settlements on occupied land in the Palestinian territories. Trump did not specify exactly how he feels Obama undermined the transition, but his tweet came as he criticized the current administration for allowing the United Nations Security Council to pass a resolution condemning Israeli settlements on Friday.

    “We had a general conversation,” Trump said of his discussion with Obama. “I think the secretary’s speech really spoke for itself, but we had a very general conversation. Very, very nice. Appreciated that he called.”

    President Obama and the president-elect have spoken regularly since the election. After their initial meeting on Nov. 10, the Wall Street Journal reported that Obama planned to “spend more time with his successor than presidents typically do.”

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest did not respond to an email from Yahoo News asking for the Obama administration’s take on the conversation with Trump.

    The president-elect discussed his call with Obama when he took a pair of questions from reporters outside the main entrance of his Florida country club. Trump spent his Christmas holiday at the club, and has conducted transition meetings there.

    Since 2009, under President Obama’s leadership, the country has fought back from the most devastating economic downturn since the Great Depression, ultimately leading to a much stronger economy that has created millions of new jobs during the longest streak of private sector job growth in history.

    Before the Trump campaign was even an idea, the economy was growing, the stock market was soaring, and deficits were falling.

    The economic picture before the election was the same as it is now – pretty positive. Trump’s existence didn’t make that possible.

    The only thing that has changed is that we now have a president-elect who will shamelessly take credit for things he wishes he could’ve done – and millions of his supporters who will eat it right up.

    Asked about Russia sanctions, Trump says 'we ought to get on with our lives'

    U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested that the United States and Russia lay to rest the controversy over Moscow's computer hacking of Democratic Party computers, saying, "We ought to get on with our lives."

    Trump has cast doubt on the findings of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russian hackers took information from Democratic Party computers and individuals and posted it online to help Trump win the election.

    The Obama administration plans to announce on Thursday a series of retaliatory measures against Russia for hacking into U.S. political institutions and individuals and leaking information, two U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

    Asked by reporters if the United States should sanction Russia, Trump replied: "I think we ought to get on with our lives. I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what's going on."....

    Donald Trump announced on Wednesday what was supposedly a new deal to bring 5,000 Sprint jobs back to the United States over the next several years.

    The only problem? Those jobs were part of a previously-announced deal from Japan’s SoftBank to create 50,000 jobs in the U.S.

    In the same announcement on Wednesday, Trump also said that startup OneWeb will be hiring 3,000 Americans in 2017. According to MarketWatch, though, those 3,000 jobs “can also be credited to SoftBank.”

    Though Trump’s announcement today was nothing new and he was just trying to take credit for jobs that would have likely been created without his election, the media was quick to run with it and give the president-elect a positive headline.
