Failed? George W. Bush was a failed president. Warren G. Harding was a failed president. Herbert Hoover was a failed president. Pierce, Buchanan, and Nixon were failed presidents.

Donald Trump is the worst human being to ever run for political office in the United States, the worst human being to ever win political office in the United States, and the worst human being to ever be punted from political office in the United States. I want his name to become a slur like "Quisling" and "Benedict Arnold" are today. I want him buried in an undisclosed location to prevent from people showing up to take a shiat on it. I want him totally and utterly erased from the record books of life. I don't want any evidence of his having existed to remain after he's dead. Memory hole the motherfarker.

Just over 4 percent of those surveyed are undecided.

I need more time to make an informed decision. Please don't rush me, this is important. But first I have to finish choosing which brand of lentils I'll buy to make lentil soup. Goya is cheaper, but I feel Bob's Red Mill has nicer packaging and a more upscale feel. I think that might make the soup taste better. At the same time the no name supermarket brand lentils are even cheaper and represent a good value, and money is tight these days. Well, I have time. I've only been standing in this aisle for 3 days, so It could be another 2 or 3 days before I make my final decision. But I'll get back to you on that president thing once. Remind me who's president again? Is it Carter? I don't really keep up with these things.

I feel like it would be better if he's buried in a public location that is widely known so lots of people can shiat on his grave. Just put a port-a-potty on top with an open hole to his fat bloated corpse.

They were saying the same thing when Dubya was taking his final bows, desperately trying to make some lemonade from a disastrous decade that began with 9/11 and ended with the collapse of the global economy. There simply was no short-term viable legacy for him, especially since Obama was next on stage. So they were trying to pretend that he was Truman rather than Roosevelt - vilified in his time but redeemed by history.

Today even conservatives dunk on the Iraq War if it suits their political purposes.

Some people like reading true crime novels. Some people are fascinated by serial killers. I've always been fascinated by abnormal psychology. Especially aberrant group psychology.

A president actively catering to the delusions of his fan base by pandering to their conspiracy theories has been absolutely riveting to me. Errbody has hobbies.

Sadly, we can't both wipe him from history and immortalize his name as a slur, though I'm with you in spirit.

I say we compromise and sell all his family property, screwing over any company stupid enough to have done business with him, revoke all Trump trademarks/branding/licensing, and then remodel all public restop and national park bathrooms as Trump memorials.

We also need regular grave pissing tours for Trump, McConnell, and quite a few others when the time comes. Complementary video and fark Your Feelings shirt sent to the deceased's family!

The funny thing is, GWB might have risen is in the ranks over time because of Obama's attempts to fix the Middle East issues along with ISIS and Al Qaeda striking themselves out with the youth they wanted to entice and rule over. Bush is still an idiot that made a bloody and foolish gamble, but other president(s), foes and time's move might have made the move have some positive payoff down the road. And Dubya picked up a book on, of all things, the Spanish Flu and got scared enough to think, yeah, we should get some folks to prep for that. Obama's team realized that was a good idea too and worked on that more.

Then Donald Trump sold out the Kurds, let ISIS off the hook, did as Russia and Turkey want the Middle East to be for them, laid off CDC and related science staff and threw the plague handbook in the trash before COVID farked the shiat out of the country.

Well, there goes fate's renovation work.

All Dubs can do now is keep up the painting and ex-President Clouseau the grinning idiot with various celebs acts to improve view of his reign over time like Carter did, and try to pass himself off as how Republicans were before this shiathouse group (which, I recall some Republicans cringing from him with this same viewpoint as he was a far cry from the positive view they had of his dad, Saint Reagan, Ike or even Nixon). Likely, Bush is not going to be as effective as Jimmy Carter in rehabbing his spot in history as the latter has done with his humble and honest Christian, intelligent insight and carpentry works though.

Maybe Biden dies midterm, Harris takes over & the GOP doesn't accept her winning in 2024. We plunge into a civil war & in the aftermath, the US either breaks up or undergoes partition, still technically one country but with different presidents like Rome.
