As much as I hate Trump, he's still not the worst. Reagan has that tied up forever.

Graytest US President in Hungary.

Hungary has gone total fascist under Orban. Trump must be tickled pinko to be loved by his commie-fascist-Internet Tough Guy-people.

That photograph of Trump is the girliest photograph of a US citizen, politician or pundit ever, let alone presidential photograph.

Trump has a serious case of the ghey. Ask any drag queen, she'll tell you all about closet NYC Republicans.

Pretty much spot on. That would be like saying Mussolini was rated great in Germany during WWII.

The poll was ran by Hungarian outlet TZH, who asked readers - who notably reside in Hungary - who they believed to be the greatest US president of all time.

Fascists support a fascist, film at 11.

Love how they think Biden is slightly better than Nixon but Carter is worse than both.

Yeah, Trump is an avatar of what Reagan (and Nixon, to a lesser extent) created.

White supremacists always thought that their behavior should not only be okay, but should be applauded, but Trump let them know that it was okay to make it public.

Might as well. The average American doesn't know jack shiat about American history. Hell, the average American thinks that the Pilgrims were happy god-fearing people who became besties with Native Americans.

I thought that you had to hate Trump to be allowed into the EU. Maybe they should tighten that up, and get rid of Poland while they're at it.

He's doing his tough guy dance where he pretends to fight two invisible men at the same time, just beating them one hand each, 2 on 1 style.

Such a toughie.
 
2021-10-27 12:04:22 PM  
It's Hungary. How many past foreign leaders does the average person know?

If I was polled about the best leader of Hungary I couldn't name anyone other than Orban since I don't know anyone else. He'd get my vote by default even though he sucks.

This poll sounds useless.

Reagan eventually came around on AIDS, although I suspect a good portion of that was seeing his close friend Rock Hudson ravaged and eventually succumb to the disease.  Trump has never admitted to being wrong about anything and never will.  Also he has no close friends or any other kind of friends.

This.  There is also the fact that people were voting between all the US Presidents ever.  So of course all the Nazis piled on the most recent Nazi, while everyone else split up their votes.

If you had a similar vote about German national leaders, and included Hitler, Hitler would get the ten to twenty percent of people who love Hitler, while everyone else would get all the non-Hitler leaders divided up among themselves, and none of them would win.

If only he had released his birth certificate, this whole misunderstanding could have been avoided.

Remember that time when you had to show your birth certificate and vaccination record for your children to play little league. I mean, everybody has a birth certificate and current vaccination record. This stuff is very important!
 
2021-10-27 12:06:34 PM  
He's the best worst President we've ever had because of all the weaknesses in our system he exposed by not giving a flying f*ck about traditions, conventions, dignity, civility, laws and the Constitution.   Also for enabling a whole lot of crazy and dangerous people to identify themselves.
 
2021-10-27 12:07:10 PM  
He's not even the best president this year.

Ffs, Trumpanzees are willfully stupid.

Don't shiat on brain damaged people, I'm friends with some from volunteering at a mental health charity. Brain damaged people can still agree that Trump is garbage and neuroplasticity is a thing, much recovery is possible.

One of the sweetest human beings I know is a great graphic designer who was shot in the head. He agrees 45** is no good. He didn't choose to be shot, he didn't choose brain damage, Trumpanzees choose Trump, but brain damaged people are still able to perceive that Trump is bad.

Bad humans prefer bad humans.

Anyone can get randomly damaged.

Lobotomies haven't been performed since around the 1950s maybe early 1960s at the latest.

Can't D2S just hire a guy to photoshop him in to "Best President Ever" on a Time magazine cover and then not pay the guy?  Then take the print down to kinkos to have it professionally framed in a Dollar Tree frame?

A number of the mods are the subject of the video.

I remember studying this and other similar theories in college, I remember certain people who probably felt like this subject matter was hitting a little too close to home raising such a fuss that we ended up having to cut this chapter of study short. We started studying primatology after that, I don't think the angry students Outlook improved very much.

There was no poll. Paid 'ad' by Trump's team, in some whatever-the-fark-this-is news outlet. You how i know it's paid for by Trump?

"See, right here is says i'm the best! Sleepy joe only got 1%! Loser!"

Get the fark outa here with that noise.

The current wealth gap, stagnant wages, rotting infrastructure, a tax system structured in most states to put the highest tax burden on the working class, etc. all are rooted in the Reagan Administration making trickle down economics the guiding economic policy shaping government policy and business practices.

Trump caused a lot of damage in the short term, but we're still suffering the after effects of Reagan's time in office over thirty years later.
 
2021-10-27 12:20:26 PM  
Well they did vote for Orban, so I'd say subby is spot on.

We're talking about Hungary here. I'm pretty sure they were still performing lobotomies, voluntary or otherwise, well into the 1980s. Think slightly better healthcare than the Soviets of the same period.

Persnickety: Tyrone Slothrop: Biscuit Tin: As much as I hate Trump, he's still not the worst. Reagan has that tied up forever.

Reagan doesn't have over half a million dead Americans on his hands, although he certainly tried with his AIDS response.

Reagan eventually came around on AIDS, although I suspect a good portion of that was seeing his close friend Rock Hudson ravaged and eventually succumb to the disease.  Trump has never admitted to being wrong about anything and never will.  Also he has no close friends or any other kind of friends.


Generally speaking I see the race to figure out who the worst president was falling into two different competitions. The first one has James Buchanan, he is the main reason why the reconstruction after the Civil War failed. A Confederate sympathizer in charge of the newly reformed United States was a dangerous mixture.

Woodrow Wilson is my other main contender in the first of these races. To sum him up succinctly, most of the prevalence of the KKK can be traced back to him.

The other discussion group for worst president ends up falling down to three main contestants: Nixon, Reagan, Trump. Nixon introduced our political Society to the idea that corruption can be an effective lever as long as you don't have a moral base to start from. Reagan took this and institutionalized it, giving us the belligerent framework that we are all suffering under now. Trump is the one that took both of those presidents, learned the exact wrong lessons to be learned and then made it okay to express that quiet hatred out loud and belligerently.

Similar to how a top 10 list in the entertainment tab ends up being a list of number one choices for your favorite band or movie, the discussion over worst president is the same. It is a selection of the other kind of number one choices with no single contestant being able to take the whole prize.
