Admired Bigly


cjones01042019

Every year since 1946, Gallup has released a poll of the most admired persons in America. Sitting U.S. presidents have captured the number one spot in 59 of the 72 years of the poll’s existence. Donald Trump is one of the exceptions.

This year’s top winner is former president Barack Obama. In fact, Obama has the second most number one finishes with eleven. Dwight Eisenhower sits on top with twelve. Trump sits at zero.

Donald Trump is that guy who can’t get over his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. A day rarely goes by that he doesn’t tweet about Obama. It bothers Trump that Americans think more highly of Obama than him. Trump confronts this by attacking Obama and even creating lies about him, like claiming he wiretapped Trump Tower. Trump feels the need to describe himself as “your favorite president” while claiming Obama’s accomplishments as his own.

Trump did come in second in the poll, but that was just thirteen percent of respondents.

For most admired woman, America picked Michelle Obama, followed by Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, and then Melania Trump. Hillary Clinton has the record for number one finishes with 22.

Since Trump hasn’t tweeted about the poll, doubting its accuracy and calling it fake news, yet, maybe he’s not aware of it. He only watches conservative media, which probably hasn’t reported it, and perhaps his staff has kept it away from him. Yesterday, he tweeted about Obama’s house in Washington and the fence around it.

Think about it. Not only did Americans choose a black guy over Trump, but they chose two black women and Hillary Clinton over his wife. Yeah, he definitely doesn’t know about this poll yet.

Be Complicit

What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you. 
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes. Contributions can be made through PayPal, checks, and wads of cash exchanged in back alleys.
Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!

  1. Thank you. I’m having a bad day, but your column has afforded me considerable amusement and not a little snickering. Also a virtual high-five with out-of-town husband over another win for a classy doubles act.

  2. I’m sharing an email that I just got from Robert Mueller:

    Special holiday wishes from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, to Borowitz Report readers.

    My fellow-Americans,
    As we count down to the New Year, I think I know exactly what would make 2019 super happy for you! (Believe me, I’m working on it.)
    Meanwhile, I thought I’d ring out the old by sharing some of my favorite Borowitz Reports from 2018. There were so many to choose from that it was hard to pick an “individual one.” (Get it? LOL) I hope you enjoy these stories. And remember: if you have any hot tips for me in 2019, call my toll-free number, 1-800-tellbob. (Oh, and don’t give me any tips on Don, Jr. I already have enough on him.)
    Cheers!
    Robert Mueller
