'Tis the season for Gallup to release its poll of the most popular kids in the whole entire universe! (Or more properly we should say "most admired," because that is what it actually is. And they didn't ask the whole universe, they just asked Americans.)

Surprise, Donald Trump isn't the most popular or admired. It's not like he doesn't have any friends or people who admire him or anything, so don't worry about the 45th president of the United States having to slow dance with himself in the corner with his back turned pretending he's making out with somebody when really he's just tongue-fucking loneliness. It's just that his friends are stinky and unbathed and racist and there aren't that many of them and there's no Electoral College in this poll to let him cheat his way in. Trump, as Gallup reports, is on his fourth year of being second place (first loser).

The winner, of course -- mentioned by 19 percent of respondents compared to Trump's 13 percent -- was that dude above, the last legitimately elected president of the United States, who was also the last legitimately American president and the last legitimately attractive president. As Gallup notes, he's been taking this prize for 11 years, running which, if you're keeping score, includes every year-end poll since he was elected in 2008, and also all three polls since Trump was elected. When will Trump overtake Barry Bamz-A-Lot? When pigs fly out of the pope's ass while he's shitting in the woods, that's when.

When Bamz beats Trump next year, he will be tied with Eisenhower for Dude Who Won This Thing The Most Times.

When Trump wins the title fucking never, he will be tied with Gerald Ford for Dude Who Sucks So Hard He Can't Even Win This Thing As The Goddamn American President.


Michelle Obama beat out Hillary Clinton this year for most admired woman with 15 percent of respondents mentioning her, compared to Hillary's four percent, because we guess Hillary didn't manage to ANOINT HERSELF and RIG IT like a common ... Beto, we guess? ... and also because MOVE OVER, HILLARY, IT'S TIME FOR NEW BLOOD. Hillary had been taking that prize for 16 years running, and has won it 22 times over the years! She wasn't even second place, either, because that went to Oprah with five percent. Perhaps most insulting of all, HRC was tied with First Lady #BeBest, she of the terrifying Winter Wonderland OF BLOOD.

There are other people on the list, if you are curious, people mentioned by enough respondents that they came up with one or two percent of the votes. Folks like Queen Elizabeth, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Nancy Pelosi and Ellen DeGeneres share space on the women's side with Nikki Haley for some reason, and on the men's side there's the pope, the Dalai Lama, the Bernie Sanders and the Joe Biden, sharing space with (ugh) Mike Pence and Elon Musk.

Who are the one percent of Americans who say the man they most admire is Mike Pence? We would like them to stay as far away from us as they possibly can.

The point of this post is that Barack Obama is still president and Donald Trump is just some stupid nightmare we're all going to wake up from sooner or later.

CLEAR YOUR CALENDARS FOR FEBRUARY 7! And then fill them back up with whatever the fuck you want, because Michael Cohen has announced through his lawyers that he is too scared to testify before an open session of Congress that day, citing threats to his family from Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani.

Wonkette has no reason to believe Cohen isn't being serious here, and NBC News reports Cohen's wife and father-in-law are particularly concerned about their safety if the man who used to call his boss MIS-TURRRR TWUMP goes to Congress and tells the truth this time. Still, we must pause to note that this is the same guy who said this to NPR reporter Tim Mak, back when Mak was at The Daily Beast:

"I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we're in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don't have," Cohen told Mak [...] "And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know."

"So I'm warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because what I'm going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting. You understand me?"

It's not so fun when the shoe is on the other foot, IS IT, MICHAEL?

Did Nancy Pelosi do something to give Donald Trump the mistaken impression he has leverage here? We don't remember her doing anything like that!

Trump sent Pelosi a letter this morning to say that, despite how she told him to stay the fuck out of her House because of his government shutdown, he would still be coming to the House on January 29 to deliver his State of the Union address. And for some weird-ass reason, Trump and his advisers in the White House actually thought she would back down. It's both hilarious and alarming that Trump and his people are that stupid, isn't it?

Anyway, Pelosi took the dare. She took the dare. Was there anybody besides those dumb fucking idiots in the White House who thought she wouldn't take the dare?

Pelosi sent a letter right back to Trump to kindly explain to him that no means "go fuck yourself," and that if he'd like her to stick her foot further up his ass and kick it around a bunch, he's welcome to test her some more:
