Gallup released its annual list of the men and women who Americans admire most. While we certainly do not agree with many of the selections, most notably the top spots for the women, there were a few names that appeared on the list that shocked us in a good way.
Sitting at the top of the women’s lists were two liberal favorites, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama. At the top of the men’s list were Bill Gates and President Donald Trump.
The list of most popular women in the world definitely raised some eyebrows. Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama were number one and number two on the list, which is odd considering how crooked Hillary blew one of the most rigged elections of all-time. But three republicans made the top 10 list and beat of one liberal who arguably should not even be on this list.
Republicans are angry that celebrity Beyoncé Knowles even made the list. However, they are not nearly as angry as liberals are about the fact that Beyoncé Knowles was beat out by several republicans. Here is the list of republican women who beat out Beyoncé Knowles on the list of most admired women.
