How much of a Trump sycophant is CNSNews.com? Check out this anonymously written Aug. 6 blog post with the gushy headline "Global Survey: Donald Trump More Admired Than Pope Francis."
That point is rehashed in the lead paragraph: "A survey of more than 42,000 people in 41 different countries conducted by YouGov.com revealed that President Donald Trump is more admired than Pope Francis." That emphasis would seem to be a subtle dig at the pope, whom the right-wing Catholic CNS editors think they can lecture to about Catholicism.
From the way the headline and first paragraph are written, you would think that Trump and the pope were the top two vote-getters in the poll. As the article eventually admits, neither of them were even in the top 10:
However, Trump is not as admired as Bill Gates—who proved to be the most admired man in the world—or former President Barack Obama who was the second most admired man in the world.
In fact, Trump ranked fourteenth and Pope Francis ranked fifteenth.
According to the survey, Chinese President Xi Jinping, who ranked fourth, and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who ranked tenth, were also more admired than Trump and Pope Francis.
That's right -- CNS thought the 14th most-admired man was more worthy of an article than the other 13.
That's Trump sycophancy, folks.
