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.

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.
