WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. President Donald Trump has called CNN ‘fake news.’ Now he’s calling a TIME Magazine poll ‘very fake.’
Trump was reacting to an online poll being conducted by TIME, asking its readers to vote for whomever they think should be included in the magazine’s 2017 100 Most Influential People in the world.
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is No. 1 in the poll and has remained in that spot since the poll first went public. Duterte is leading with 5% of of the votes. The next group of celebrities is trailing with 3% of the votes and includes Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis and Canada’s Justin Trudeau.
Trump’s standing is at 2% which he shares with 25 other personalities.
Of course, the narcissistic president is not happy, saying it is unbelievable that the president of a third world country is topping the poll and that he (Trump) is way below in the ratings.
“Don’t believe the poll,” Trump said, “it is faker than fake. Believe in it only when I become No. 1. There is time.”
The online voting closes at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on April 16.
