Top 10 Most Forgettable Presidents of the United StatesThe top presidents who weren't remembered for much just that the fact that they were president.
Well, the one being on the top of lists about forgotten things just makes it more remembered. Harrison was only president for 30 days and didn't do anything significant for his country. It's very sad that his term was very short. Also, most of the ones after James Monroe and before Teddy Roosevelt are forgotten.
Shouldn't the fact that he died a month after in office be a reason why he's NOT forgettable? Compared to some random Rutheford..., or Fillmore?
Died after a month in office. Trivia time: this was because he went out to his inauguration on a cold, rainy day without an overcoat or hat because he'd been called old one too many times on the campaign trail. Also was President way back in 1841, another reason he's forgotten.
The American President who died like months later committed the least war crimes of all US presidents.
What's there to remember about him? At least we all know W. Harrison as a war hero general and the guy who died a month after serving in office.
Hayes is probably the only U.S president who I don't really know much about and immediately forget afterwards...
I actually like Hayes. What's forgettable about him? Any answers? I'll be checking so write something.
I feel like it's bad, but he's the only President I actually didn't know existed.
They won't even put a picture of this guy on here because he's so forgettable. Maybe even because he doesn't actually exist! I'm getting ahead of myself though, every President after Jackson (except for Garfield and Gerald Ford) clearly don't exist anyway
Hear that? That's the sound of everyone reading this list googling these presidents.
Nobody knows who Millard Fillmore is.
He literally got nothing done.
I want to vote for a lot of Presidents listed here (particularly the ones in between Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln, but the only thing I can really remember about him is that his last name is the name of a comic strip character. Very sad.
He was assassinated halfway though his first year.
He was assassinated 6 months into his presidency. So, he's kinda forgettable
It was 6 months not 2 years.
This guy gave the longest ingerational speech than got pneumonia and that killed him.
I remember him as the grandson of the president that got the shortest term
He even said forget I am president I will play golf with my friends and bet the heck out of them
I gotta disagree. With a name like Van Buren...
Martin Van Buren, remember him by his name.
I'm related to him
His name though...
I always forget this one.
Always forget him.
Who was this dude
He is one of the best. And my fourth to favorite
What happens when you act like Kim Jong-un.
This guy died after a little over a year in office, ate too many cherries and drank to much milk
I think he's only this far down because everyone forgot about him here too
Kind of underrated too. Good businessman.
Hey Toptens, just in case you didn't know, this guy was ronald reagans political hero.
I remember him as Harding's vice.
He reminds me of an elf...
To those who voted for him, until 2015, he had a mountain named after him. Is there anything in the world named after you? I don't think so...
How is Mckinley forgettable. If it weren't for him we would never have annexed Hawaii or any of the pacific territories.
So McKinley gets 7th but Taft isn't on this list?
I almost failed a test because I forgot about Taft.
Not McKinley, but Taft.
I remember him by his angry face.
I remember him as vice of Richard Nixon.
How people can lie to themselves is such a ' mystery. Donald J Trump will be remembered as one of our greatest American Presidents. Unless the idiots who still think (for some reason) he's a Russian or some BS like that, try to rewrite history. President Trump has been slandered from the start, he's insult proof to the 10's.
Give him a break, he hasn't done anything yet because of the Democrats (aka, snowflakes- because they melt easily) won't let him do anything.
Such a shameful, incompetent, thin skinned, preteen tweeting moron. I wish we could forget him. How I desperately wish we could forget him.
He is horrid and I can't even count all the bad things he is and has done. No one's forgetting him, teachers can use him as a bad example for kids
He was the president for only a day after Zachary Taylor died in office. He is never mentioned in any history books. This man is the most forgettable president in the United States of America.
Um, he wasn't ever actually the president, because he was never sworn in. If he was, than he'd be put in the president list
He's not the president.
Sometimes, I forget every president except the famous ones. John Tyler is one of them
I remember him as being vice president of the 1 month term.
He shouldn't be. He started the Civil War, that dip.
He's the worst president ever known for starting the civil war or rather doing nothing to prevent it
If he was forgettable, books would say someone else tried to re-unite the Uninon and Confederate states. Him being 18 is a un-reasonable but I can kind of see why considering he wasn't president for long.
What kind of retard does it take to forget the greatest president in history?
Forgetting a President you learned in Kinder and always remember..
I thought everyone knows who Abraham Lincoln was, though!
He's been in the bath.
He annexed states from Mexico though.
Excuse me, manifest destiny.
Supported a extermination of Mormons in Missouri who were citizens of the U.S.
not a good president
I can't forget the biggest villain of our country.
I remember him for his last name, Hoover Dam!
Andrew Johnson was the 17th president of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson assumed the presidency as he was vice president of the United States at the time of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. A Democrat who ran with Lincoln on the National Union ticket, Johnson came to office as the Civil War concluded. He favored quick restoration of the seceded states to the Union. His plans did not give protection to the former slaves; he came into conflict with the Republican-dominated Congress, culminating in his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He was acquitted in the Senate by one vote. Johnson's main accomplishment as president is the Alaska purchase.
Forgetting the vice of Lincoln?
We had a president named Grover? But he was famous for being the 22nd AND 24th President.
Here is one that I think should be way higher. Many people don't even realize that Grant was a president, he's just thought of as the Union general during the Civil War. Let's just say he was a much better general than he was a president.
He's not that forgettable compared to others, but I agree to the comment that says we all thought he was a Union general because I did to before a couple of months ago.
I remember him for screaming, raging, and ranting, because he spilled whiskey on his pants.
He may have had fewer votes in re-election than his first time but that is misleading and frankly, I think you know it. Obama was elected comfortably both times. Contrast that with George W. Bush, who was within one state of being defeated and was elected by the thinnest of margins both times. This is what Republicans do, they try and resurrect the reputation of their failed presidents by using false or misleading statistics. Reagan was highly unpopular when he left office, but the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson spent millions to glorify Reagan and vilify Democrats. They're trying the same thing now with W, but it's not going to work as well. Reagan wasn't great but at least he wasn't God awful like W. And W's daddy was overrated, too. Remember, Clinton had to pull us out of a recession, didn't he?
He doubled the national debt with nothing positive gained. More people in poverty, on food stamps and unable to wrk to their potential. The only president since Wilson in 1916 to be able to win the White House with fewer electoral votes in re- election. Greatest speaker & poorest leader we have had!
How is the current president forgettable. If you think about the president of the United States I guaranteed you'll think of him
Boring Barack. Nice guy, but mediocre president.
He wasn't a bad president, but in 50 years he will barely be remembered.
