Samantha Bee is one of the world’s great leaders?
Well, excuuuuse me, but I never heard of her until I did a post on her a month or so ago. I think she was saying nasty things about the president or first lady.
Is Fortune magazine still published? Does anyone read it?
Does anyone care about this ridiculous list?
Fortune Magazine’s latest list of “The World 50 Greatest Leaders” includes comedian Samantha Bee, but not President Trump.
Coming in at No. 1 on the annual list is Chicago Cubs General Manager Theo Epstein, who built the team that in 2016 won the Cubs’s first World Series championship since 1908.
Rounding out the top five are Jack Ma, executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group; Pope Francis; Gates Foundation co-chair Melinda Gates; and Amazon’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos.
Bee, the host and executive producer of the weekly political satire show “Full Frontal,” came in at No. 19.
While Trump didn’t make the cut, other political leaders did.
Tsai Ing-wen, president of Taiwan, comes in at No. 8; Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at No. 9; German Chancellor Angela Merkel at No. 10; Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) at No. 12; Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) at No. 13; former Vice President Joe Biden at No. 23; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at No. 31; Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite at No. 45; and London Mayor Sadiq Khan No. 48.
Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, did make the list, at No. 7.
McMaster replaced Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser after Flynn’s swift resignation in the wake of reports he misled senior White House officials about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.
Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, topped Fortune’s list in 2016.
If the objective is to demoralize Trump and his supporters this horse manure rates a big FAIL. It only makes us more determined to put the mainstream media out of our lives for good.
