Worst President In History

Trump will go down in history as the worst President ever, beating out Richard Nixon for the title. Trump is corrupt, a liar, a con man, and a cheat. He might be the first President to ever serve jail time.

I think when his taxes and finances are exposed, you will see that his "business" was always built on debt, credit, bankruptcy, and fraud. Trump likes to call media "Fake News", but he is a "Fake Businessman".

I look forward to the day when he and his lackeys are indicted and Trump's name is consigned to the ash heap of history. His name will rank up there with villains like Benedict Arnold, Boss Tweed, and Richard Nixon- all despicable figures from American History.

42. Interesting thought. Being the worst makes him "the most" or #1, ensuring he will be

talked about for an interminable (and not survivable) amount of time. No person here is young enough that they will not die having heard his name mentioned within the last year or so of their life.

---- IF ----- the republic survives.


Does he really care why his name is remembered? I doubt it. It's ALL about him. Always.

Always.

39. Honor

I don't think Trump even comprehends what the word "honor" means. Sociopaths are completely without principles. They do not understand anything other than love of self and hatred of anything and anyone other than themselves. Honor, virtues, etc do not even exist in their minds. It is a real sickness.

It's easy to get this GOP scum confused though, so no worries. Come to think of it, even their supposedly good president (Reagan) was complete and utter shit.

Trump hasn't attacked the wrong country resulting in the deaths of almost half a million people like W did, yet. Hopefully that won't happen before Trump is out.

21. Good Point

W was illegitimate also, chosen over Gore by the Supreme Court. I think the difference between George W Bush and Trump is that Bush was misguided and wrong, but Trump is a sociopath who does note care about anything but himself.

Trump is destructive and corrosive to our institutions- Free Press, the FBI/Justice Department, the Courts. George W was not trying to destroy our country, whatever awful stuff W and Cheney were up to.

29. Bush-43 gave us financial meltdown

In 2008-09. Stock market tanked, unemployment was record high and Iraq was lost. Trump would escape the worst president title if he loses in 2020. Because this economy is too hot to go down to Bush-43 levels in 18 months remaining, and he has not started a shooting war yet.

However if Trump wins 2nd term, he will certainly be in the running for the worst president title.

But I'm holding off on assessing his place in history until he's out of office.

36. Nah, he's an imbecile.

With no major wars and a roaring economy, even a bad incumbent would be a shoo-in for re-election, and their approval ratings would he well north of 50%. The fact that Trump routinely drops under 40% and is arguably the underdog going into the 2020 election shows how inept he is.

37. Underestimate him at your (and our) peril.

His blatant lies and utter ignorance of how things actually work has had zero consequences for him so far. He tweets falsehoods with glee. His only rationalizations for his actions are simplistic tautologies (getting along with murderous dictators is a good thing, not a bad thing). He's thumbing his nose at all of us.

He is using Russian propaganda techniques and confidence-man techniques on the American public openly and brazenly. He's already bent every department of the federal government to his will, filling key positions with sycophants and fellow criminals. The Senate is utterly compliant. Everyone with a conscience has been driven out of the White House and the Cabinet. Barr is using the AG's office to be the president's personal lawyer. McCabe is keeping the FBI's profile as low as possible. No one hears a peep from the CIA. Now he's pulled White House credentials from the independent Press, only speaking to propaganda outlets

For an Imbecile, he's doing an effective job of turning this country into an Authoritarian shithole.

40. He Is A Dangerous Sociopath

You are right that he should not be underestimated. Sociopaths are often like idiot savants- they have stupidity and blind spots, but they also have weird skills at manipulating others and promoting themselves. It is all about narcissism. Everything must be about them, reflect them. Their world view is warped and they know nothing but self promotion, but they are often highly skilled at that, since this is what they spend their entire life doing.

Trump has had a lifetime of experience in self-promotion, fraud, and cheating. He is basically doing what he has done all of his life, albeit now on a giant global stage with very high stakes. Trump is a liar and a cheat. He is certainly a con man. He needs to be stopped.

When I say he is the Worst President in History, I mean that he is not just corrupt (a number of Presidents have been). Trump is worse than corrupt- he is a mentally ill narcissist and is a threat to global and national security. There has never been a worse person in this office. Trump must be voted out in 2020.

44. That's what I'm really afraid of.

I used the word 'yet' because he could still get into it with Iran and that would be a disaster. There's also Venezuela too. Hopefully the House will keep him too busy trying to deflect subpoenas so he doesn't have time for any of that.

41. Yes

By external measures, yes, George W was worse. What I mean about Trump is that he is the worst person ever to be President. George W was a rich asshole frat boy from an elitist family who got elected President, but even he is not a sociopathic narcissist like Trump.

So yes, by external metrics (wars, bad economy, low approval ratings) George W seems worse, but by examination of the mind and character, Trump is much, much worse, in my opinion. Bush was just stupid and actively wrong, but Trump is pathological.

We need the perspective of time before we know if Trump will have damaged the country like James Buchanan did. I have no doubt, however, that he will be considered the most corrupt, immoral, and unethical president in our history.

Buchanan, Harding and Andrew Johnson usually round out the bottom of most ratings. There was one announced in January of this year where Trump entered the ranking at 42, in company of the aforementioned trio.

Since he's an illegitimate president he should always have an asterisk next to his name in the history books. Without Russia's help in turning the vote tally against Hillary, and toward his ugly ass, he never would have been "elected" (appointed) in the first place. He loses the popular vote by almost 3 million votes and he wins?

The nihilistic asshole-in-charge (and his cadre of loyalists, and the complicit GOP) who are “running” the country are in fact destroying it.

45’s reign of inept terror will end, but the mess that remains will entail a massive clean-up. And once again, Democrats will have to bring the mops and buckets, since no one else will.

Dig up Raygun and throw his corpse in a cell as well. It deserves it?
