It was a stunning turn of events that called for immediate fact checking after information came out about Sarah Huckabee Sanders. People didn’t know if it was true or not, so the fact-checkers did their work and officially confirmed something huge about Sanders. It’s information that was hiding in plain sight and some of her critics might be disgusted when they find out about this information. Her supporters, however, might say they’ve known this all along. Needless to say, the information is now officially confirmed by fact checkers and Sarah Huckabee Sanders can now add another accomplishment to her resume.
Not only is the accomplishment honorable, but it certainly must provide a positive ego boost and encouragement if Sanders had any doubt about the job she was doing. Sanders is officially listed as one of the top ten most admired women in the United States. She came in at rank #9 and joins the ranks of Melania Trump who was also listed in the same category. In fact, Melania only ranked 10 on the list, which was a shock to many of her wonderful supporters who believe she’s holding up very nicely amid the drama thrown at her on a daily basis.
This is a remarkable achievement for both ladies who supporters believe are doing a wonderful job serving the country. It all started when a website posted their results and someone posted a meme picture that suggested Sanders was in the top ten. Critics jumped on it right away, some people called it “fake news,” and then the fact checkers from Snopes got involved and looked up the information. Snopes stated that the claim was true.
Here is the meme that sparked a bit of outrage.
Here is the information from Snopes:
“Claim: In 2018, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was listed as one of the 10 “most admired” women in the United States.”
“Origin: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been the subject of intense scrutiny and criticism as one of President Donald Trump’s chief spokespersons since his inauguration in January 2017.
Her consistent defense of sometimes vacillating and even contradictory statements by Trump, as well as her occasionally combative style have made her the subject of ridicule by late night talk show hosts and in Saturday Night Live sketches. In April 2018, comedian Michelle Wolf targeted Huckabee Sanders in a controversial monologue at the White House Correspondents Association dinner.
It might come as a surprise, then, to learn that many members of the American public admire her more than nearly any other woman in the world. In May 2018, the “Trump 2020” Facebook page — which is not affiliated with the president’s official re-election campaign — made just such a claim, posting a meme which read:
Congrats to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Sarah was just named as one of the ten most admired women in America. This is true. In April 2018, the UK-based polling firm YouGov published the results of its “World’s Most Admired” survey. Respondents in the United States ranked Huckabee Sanders the ninth most admired woman in the world. (You can view the United States’ rankings by choosing “USA” from the drop-down list of countries.)
Huckabee Sanders was ranked behind Nobel Peace Prize-winner Malala Yousafzai, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Queen Elizabeth II and Oprah Winfrey. The woman Americans admire most, according to the survey, is Michelle Obama. Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was ranked fourth.
By some distance, the man most admired by American survey respondents is former president Barack Obama. His successor, Donald Trump, was ranked second, ahead of Pope Francis, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Clint Eastwood and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders — all of whom appeared in the top ten.”
Here’s a screenshot of the list of people most admired by Americans in 2018. This chart is courtesy of YouGov. Some people might get the creeps after they see some of the names on this list. Judging by the results, it seems like more Democrats were polled than Republicans. Polls like this should be done equally among political parties to help eliminate any potential for bias in either direction.
How does it feel to see Sarah Sanders rise to position #9 on the list of most admired women in the United States? Do you think she will rank higher next year?
Are you glad David Hogg isn’t on the list?
