President Obama Hosts Chinese President Xi Jinping For State Visit

President Obama continues to wow the world with all his charisma.

He’s covered GQ, joined Facebook in a really suave way, and even mastered his own, unique rendition of “Hotline Bling,” Drake’s super anthem. But those aren’t POTUS’ only accolades for the year 2015 – the Leader of the Free World also tops the annual Gallup poll for most admired man.

As we would’ve predicted, Donald Trump comes in way behind the Prez, only gaining 5 percent of votes, while Obama raked in 17 percent.

From USA Today:

Donald Trump and Pope Francis both finished with 5% of respondents who named them their most admired man, well behind Obama’s 17%.

“Trump’s surprisingly strong and often controversial presidential campaign has made him a prominent news figure this year and, thus, top-of-mind for many Americans,” Gallup reported. “This helps explain his strong showing when Gallup asks Americans, in an open-ended fashion, to name the man they admire most. The successful businessman has finished in the top 10 four other times, including from 1988 through 1990 and in 2011.”

Another 2016 presidential candidate — Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, a former first lady and secretary of State — topped the list of most admired women for the 14th straight year and 20th time overall.

What this all boils down to is: You the man, Prez.
