Just a side note about a quip about James Buchanan being in the running for the worst President until Donald Trump. While Buchanan wasn't especially memorable, just a few terms earlier was Andrew Johnson who almost certainly was the worst President until Donald Trump. A Confederate sympathizer who actively worked against Reconstruction, emboldened the defeated seditionists, and drove a permanent wedge between the North and South, Johnson worked diligently to undo America under the guise of "State's Rights", and we're still feeling the effects of that today.

I will say this for him, though. He never encouraged anyone to fly the Confederate flag over the Capitol.
