Dude, nobody hated this guy. If you ignore Washington, Lincoln and FDR he's the most popular president-either him or Teddy.
And...he also thought trees cause pollution...children should eat ketchup instead of nourishing vegetables. He pretended the scourge that was Aids didn't exist and allocated no time or money to alleviate the death sentence that it was, at the time.. He was mired in the Iran/Contra debacle and took no responsibility. And his failed, selfish and totally debunked trickle down economics was his legacy. He is responsible for the huge chasm that exists today between the rich and the poor. He was pure garbage!
Everyone hated? Only brainwashed liberals.
Well, he did
Increase the national debt.

Most divisive President ever. Made EVERYTHING about race. His legacy lives on in the mainstream media and violent protesters.
Are you serious? Barack Obama was a terrible president. During his presidency, the US debt got 90% higher than it was, student loans increased, food stamps increased, federal debt increased, money printing increased, healthcare costs increased, black inequality increased. However, labor force participation decreased, median family income decreased, and home ownership decreased. You call that a good president? I don't. - DoroExploro13
