Biggest Villains of 2016

Let's just get this out of the way: 2016 was an abomination. Celebrity deaths, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, political disappointments, you name it. So it's no surprise that we should add some people who really made the year look bad. Here are the "villains" of 2016.

The Top Ten


They ruined 2016 for me - TwilightKitsune

Scary! I will not convert!

I think we all know by now. - CrimsonShark

Ruined everything...2016

Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

Now trump's a "villain." I'm scared for my generation in the future. They think his statements make him a villain now. Hopefully things change when they become adults, because if they are this immature in the real world... - Therandom

Donald Trump has negatively changed the political culture of America. I hope he doesn't do some stupid crap as the president. I just can't believe we gave the nuclear launch codes to this crazy demagogue. - AKASHPAWAR

This man is a catastrophe waiting to happen. Forget about America being great again, I just hope we survive this ego-maniacal lunatic! God save the USA! - G-Hag56

You mean the majority voted Trump because he was a villain? How stupid. - SteveKing

Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician who was a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2008 and 2016 elections.

I personally think Clinton was worse than Trump. Just look at her track record as a politician, controversies surrounding her for several years and the fact that she was in FBI investigation during her presidential run. - CrimsonShark

How on earth do you lose to Donald Trump? Doing so qualifies you for every possible "worst" list - AKASHPAWAR

Not my idea of a great candidate, but I think she's have been a good POTUS. People who elected that moron who takes office in a couple weeks will soon regret it when it starts to fly. - G-Hag56

The embodiment of VILLIAN!
The lies. The deceit. Benghazi!

Boris Johnson Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is an English politician, popular historian, and journalist who has served as Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip since 2015. Johnson previously served as the MP for Henley from 2001 until 2008, and as Mayor of London from 2008 to 2016. A member of more.

Should be 1.

Kim Jong-un Kim Jong-un is the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea.

I personally think he should be here just because even though he has been leader since 2011, he is still terrible.

This crazy communist wants to nuke the world

NUKE THE US - PhantomPowah

Bashar al-Assad Bashar Hafez al-Assad is the current President of Syria, holding the office since 17 July 2000. He is also commander-in-chief of the Syrian Armed Forces, General Secretary of the ruling Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party and Regional Secretary of the party's branch in Syria.

This dickhead is still bombing over Syria, whilst fighting against Russia without any consent to help his country whatsoever. I hate Donald Trump, but if you really want a singular villain for the list, Assad really takes the cake as 2016's villain. - CrimsonShark

Somebody has to overthrow him

Nigel Farage Nigel Paul Farage is a British politician and former commodity broker. He is the leader of the UK Independence Party, having held the position since November 2010, and previously from September 2006 to November 2009.

Shouldn't that be hero? - Mrveteran

A great man who is completely completely unencumbered by the type of derangement which afflicts his detractors.

Omar Mateen Omar Mir Seddique Mateen was an American mass murderer and domestic terrorist who killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016, before he was killed in a shootout with the local police. more.

The perpetrator of the Orlando Nightclub shooting. I guess most of you know by now... - CrimsonShark

He's a bastard - TwilightKitsune

Looks like the bloke who would do a 24 overnight challenge. - DapperPickle

Was he really gay? - AKASHPAWAR

Special Snowflakes

They are a scourge upon civilization.

Vladimir Putin Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has been the President of Russia since 7 May 2012, succeeding Dmitry Medvedev. He was also President from 2000-2008.

This guy is an amazing leader wish he was US president.

This dude is a complete bad ass, who just looks out for his people, and occasionally hacks foreign elections...but hey...he shouldn't be on this list. - AKASHPAWAR

The Contenders

Social Justice Warriors

They threaten the Constitution of several countries with their radical reformist ideas. - 654o6t04

Bernie Sanders Bernard "Bernie" Sanders is an independent American Senator from Vermont and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

The world has turned upside down, when just by being a fairly pleasant old guy, the population thinks a radical communist sounds reasonable.

Abu Bakr al Baghdadhi Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi was the leader of the Salafi jihadist militant terrorist organisation known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).
Rodrigo Duterte Rodrigo "Rody" Roa Duterte, also known by the nickname Digong, is a Filipino lawyer and politician of Visayan descent who is the President-elect of the Philippines after topping the official Congressional canvass for the 2016 election.

Hero who's ending the filthy drug dealers getting people on drugs with the cold hand instead of the hug like liberals have proposed. - 654o6t04

This dude probably does half the narcotics he confiscates. Crazy man! - AKASHPAWAR

Jammat ul-Ahrar

Most unheard of terrorist group - SoldierOfFortune

A terrorist group based in Pakistan. They were responsible for the bombings at Gulshan e-Iqbal Park, Lahore and the Quetta Government Hospital (The later also associated with ISIS). - CrimsonShark

Hurricane Matthew

I'm putting this here because I think necessary evil should be included (Keep in mind this isn't about the evilest people, it's the "biggest villains" of the year by reputation and scale). But yeah, one of the worst natural disasters in the United States's modern memory since Hurricane Katrina... - CrimsonShark

Not Even A Living Thing

Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Bad music is a villain? I mean, yeah, it is, but this is higher than actual horrible things.

I knew he was gonna be on here - Hotheart123

U know he punched a fan in the face on November 22.

Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel

The guy who drove a truck and rammed it into hundreds who were celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France. - CrimsonShark

Kevin James Loibl

Who on earth decides to bring in a gun and a large knife and proceed to pull the trigger on a singer who loved her fans, had a beautiful personality and was giving out hugs to everyone who attended?! Yeah, I suppose America's gun law hasn't improved since Dimebag Darrell was shot down needlessly. - CrimsonShark

The Wild Fires at Fort McMurry
Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

He hasn't really done anything wrong in comparison to the rest of the people on this list. I'm not saying it's wrong to dislike him, but I believe terrorists and our two 2016 presidential candidates are the ones that deserve hate on this list more than him. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

History will be very kind to a president who continued to do his best, and accomplish a great deal against a contrary Congress led by two obstructionist asses, one in each house. - G-Hag56

Best president in history. enough said - AKASHPAWAR

The Wildfires at Gatlinburg, North Carolina

Tragic! And some stupid punk brat set the fire deliberately? Peachy... - G-Hag56
