Stupidest U.S. Presidents

The Top Ten
1 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, ...read more.

History’s worst American President who has used this high office for personal gain. When asked difficult questions, this man ignores the question and self congratulates and makes self complements that only he believes. All Executive Branch and political appointees (usually subject matter experts) whose jobs is to advise the President with best practices and guidance are required to parrot his views and explain his unsound and unwise decisions. Trump has single handily disabled the checks and balances installed by our forefathers while loading the Judiciary and Executive branches with his like minded cronies. Will our tired, overworked, underpaid citizens, the US Constitution, the US Judiciary, and the American Dream survive his presidency?

A loser pushed the United States into a quagmire under his own bad leadership, and he was proud of his actions. During the pandemic of the new crown virus, this guy shed the blame on China and even blamed Biden. Advertising for a certain food brand at this time. After Floyd was killed, instead of quelling, he sent troops to suppress the demonstrators. He should put these labels on himself: idiot, liar, mentally ill, low IQ

Ran for the office to become President. No other agenda, just wanted to be President. Unfamiliar with the second amendment, no knowledge of Federal Court appointees, no opinion on abortion, until the Republican Party told him what to believe. Unfamiliar with the Constitution of the United States. Can't wait for the books which will be written after he leaves office.

I'm not surprised that this mentally ill; poor excuse for a human being is doing so poorly as a president of anything. He is our first mentally retarded/mentally ill president in history. He does and says things that only an idiot might say and is proud or filled with self indulgent fake superiority and intelligence as only he can explain. He brags about "tapes" and impedes constitutional and unconstitutional laws just as other famous past presidents (Richard Nixon) have done and met their Watergate. He hasn't even learned that he might just be a "Crook" as well as an "Idiot". He should stop before he shoots himself in the head or his wife by mistake. He might as well make himself the head of his own investigation of himself.

Multiple Presidents of the past were mentally ill to some degree.

2 George W. Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

He destabilized the Middle East when he took out Saddam Hussein. His conies said the war wouldn't cost the U.S. much that oil $ would pay for it and we would be treated as liberators. Where did they get their intelligence from?

He sent our country into the most severe recession since the Great Depression.

Tax breaks for the rich in a time of war was a bit too much for our economy to handle.

He is a joke and an embarrassment. Shame on people who voted this puppet president into office twice.

Started unnecessary wars that did not end up making the populations of Iraq or Afghanistan much better off - especially not compared to spending same $$$ on sneaky development aid.

Put Dick Cheney in charge of torture, war, causing climate change, fracking. Worst crime of any US POTUS. Also, cheated his way into office in Florida in 2000 & Ohio in 2004 setting up GOP to cheat in Trump in 2016. Worst President Ever. US permanent decline under his watch, probably $20T debt caused by his wars. A plain moron.

Signature domestic achievement: No Child Left Behind is now considered a failure by even the most strident conservatives.
Signature international achievement: The war in Iraq is a dramatic failure that has made life much worse for millions of people. Made worse by the fact that his own Father said that this would be the case 10 years earlier when planning the first gulf war.

not smart, not evil, just not smart at all (only president dumber is Trump). unfortunately he had Chaney who is/was an evil mother f'er

3 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 ...read more.

I can guarantee that EVERYONE who is so against him and are on this site are either racists. Even if you claim you're not a racist, if you genuinely say think he's a terrible president, I promise you, you're a racist piece of trash at heart, even if that's unconsciously.

Obama managed to clean up the mistakes Bush made. Bush was able to ruin all the good things Clinton did.

Also, the person said something about how the US needs to team up with Ukraine to defeat Russia (even though there's no actual war going on) and how Obama's bad for not doing that, did you ever maybe consider that the Ukraine-Russia conflict has NOTHING to do with us and that if we attacked, we'd be beyond screwed?

Obama will go down as the worst President since Hoover. He gave the worst terrorist state-Iran hundreds of billions of dollars and lied to the the vote about the Iran nuclear deal terms.
He drew a Red Line in Syria that was was a silly threat and stood by as hundreds of thousands were killed and millions become refugees.
He supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and did not support either of two Allies there.
He has backed down against Russia, China and screwed Israel.
He supported the overthrow of Khadafy when Libya was fighiting Ilamic terrorism.
And then there is his domestic policy failures. We have the lowest participation in the labor force in over 30 years.
We have the highest number of people on welfare and the lowest participation in paying income taxes.
He has stymied job growth for all 7 plus years of his presidency by supporting thousand of new restrictive regulations.
He has done more harm to ace relations than any elected leader since Govenor ...more

Now the USA is making decisions we can't. What we should do is team up with Ukraine and help them with there fight with Russia. We'll the fight hasn't started yet but it will after that plane crash. Obama is to scared too make that decision. What he wants to do is make the Marine Corp into the navy which by the way is not his decision and to think about it he is taking high ranked Marines and making lower ranks. So all are military leaders should make the decision to abandon Obama and make there own decisions.

Every major policy move has been either devious or stupid or both. He ran as a socialist, ("Change You Can Live With"), and every time he presents a new idea, it's a rehash of failed leftist ideology. That, and pushing an agenda designed to make conservatives angry, blacks angry, and anyone else that is paying attention angry. Bush and W were both leftist republicans. However, Barack Obama is a disaster for the USA economically, and appears to be trying to start World War III in Syria or The South China Sea.

4 Warren G. Harding Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death in 1923.

This man was one of our last good Presidents, based solely on Peace, Liberty, and Constitution as ratified. Should be lower on this list.

Gave government jobs to his crooked friends. He only won because he was good looking

Where are the Idiots I voted for?

Foolisu minister

5 Herbert Hoover Herbert Clark Hoover was an American engineer, businessman and politician who served as the 31st President of the United States from 1929 to 1933 during the Great Depression.

Business man who was president during the Depression. Oh wow, next business man to be president and there's a global depression. I'm sure it's a coincidence.

Honestly, I pity Hoover. I'm not a republican, but I think he was not half as bad a president as people make him out to be. He did not cause the depression. Indeed, I have to say, though, his politics were stupid, as non-intervention cannot solve a huge crisis (nor can it solve any crisis). So not too smooth to do that. But saying he caused the depression is excessive. Definitely not the worst president.

What an idiot! Yeah, you're lucky that FDR came after you to clean up your Great Depression mess.

Hoover did not start the Great Depression. It came unexpectedly.

Raised income taxes... Easily caused The Great Depression.

He didn't cause the depression. He probably made it much worse by hiking taxes and imposing tariffs, but it was coming before he even took office.

6 James Buchanan James Buchanan, Jr. was the 15th President of the United States, serving immediately prior to the American Civil War.

Really? How can harry truman be stupid save on of the top 20 richest country in the world as our ally? Buchanan said that we need to calm down the south when the north are still angered!

Here is a thought: send troops to the Southern US.

He's quite intelligent. He's got an IQ of 141. He's just a terrible president.

His arrogance caused the civil war.

It was just his stupid arrogance that somehow got Lincoln killed, too.

7 Ulysses S. Grant Ulysses S. Grant was an American soldier and statesman who served as Commanding General of the Army and the 18th President of the United States, the highest positions in the military and the government of the United States.

His name starts with an u!

8 Richard Nixon Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States from 1969 until his resignation in 1974, the only president to resign from office. He had previously served as the 36th Vice President of the United States from 1953 to 1961, and prior to that as a U.S. Representative and also Senator ...read more.

Richard was a great president. Then he was involved in the watergate. He has done WAY less lying than hillary clinton, and he was to be impeached. She, however, is allowed to run for president.

Richard was not stupid. On the contrary, he was quite clever, devious and cunning.

He called Mr. Indira Gandhi a witch so I hate him

Watergate, he's almost as retarded as clinton, but I hate nixon more. For things like watergate.

9 Andrew Johnson Andrew Johnson was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson became president as he was vice president at the time of the assassination of [Abraham Lincoln].

He was a drunk. He learned to read and write until he was married!

10 Jimmy Carter James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr. is an American politician and author who served as the 39th President of the United States from 1977 to 1981. In 2002, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work with the Carter Center.

Called the energy crisis the "Moral Equivalent Of War," the acronym for which is "MEOW," the sound a cat makes. Botched the rescue operation in Iran for lack of a single helicopter when the U.S. military had 5,000 in its inventory at the time.

Weakened United States military. An embarrassment.

Why the hell did he increase gas prices?

Why did he increase gas prices?

The Contenders
11 James Monroe James Monroe was an American statesman and Founding Father who served as the fifth President of the United States from 1817 to 1825.

Throughout the knowledge of what I know of him, he was at the very least a decent president, not a bad one. He cared dearly about the country, just like other good presidents. He’ve done many things to help this country grow,

12 Bill Clinton William Jefferson Clinton (Born August 19th 1946) is an American politician who was the 42nd President of the United States. He previously served as governor of Arkansas. He became president after unseating incumbent president George H.W. Bush in 1992. He was re-elected in 1996 after defeating Senator ...read more.

Him, obama and bush followed and are following orders from one organization. Federal Reserve Bank. Open your eyes America!

We were in the black when he was president not trillions of dollars in debt like we are now!

He's one of the biggest reasons for our economy. Everyone blames Bush but it goes back to Clinton

I con't blame him, he was only following his wife's orders. Hitlery is really the stupid one.

13 William Henry Harrison William Henry Harrison was an American statesman who served as the 9th President of the United States from March 4, 1841 until his death on April 4, 1841. The cause of death of William Henry Harrison was pneumonia, after a cold and wet inauguration.

Certainly the dumbest. He didn't take mommy's advice to put on a coat or stay inside by the fire.

All he did was give a hour long speech in a blizzard without a jacket, then die from a cold.

What? We don't know much about William Harrison's presidency.

14 Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was an American statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837 . He was born near the end of the colonial era, somewhere near the then-unmarked border between North and South Carolina, into a recently immigrated Scots-Irish farming family of relatively ...read more.

Why is he on our money?! He literally committed mass genocide.

He had no education and couldn't even spell his name.

His name should have been Andrew Jack Ass.

Trail of tears, invading Florida occupied by Spain, a true idiot db

15 John Adams John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy, Massachusetts, United States. Adams served as the president of the United States from March 4, 1797 to March 4, 1801. He died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 90.
16 William Howard Taft William Howard Taft served as the 27th President of the United States and as the tenth Chief Justice of the United States, the only person to have held both offices.

He didn't actually get stuck in a bath tub but he had two other bath tub accidents.

Got stuck in the bathtub. Enough said.

His bathtub could fit four men.

Taft rhymes with daft

17 Zachary Taylor Zachary Taylor was the 12th President of the United States, serving from March 1849 until his death in July 1850. Before his presidency, Taylor was a career officer in the United States Army, rising to the rank of major general.

He looks like william henry harrison but harrison is uglier

18 James A. Garfield James Abram Garfield was the 20th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1881, until his assassination later that year.
19 George H. W. Bush George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924 - November 30, 2018) was an American politician who served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. Prior to assuming the presidency, Bush served as the 43rd Vice President of the United States under Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1989.

Cheney did NOT pull the strings for Bush 41. Bush was directly in charge of how to deal with the Soviet Union as it was collapsing.

- "He really never was President. He was only a Puppet with Cheney pulling the strings".

Wrong Bush

He really never was President. He was only a Puppet with Cheney pulling the strings.

liar, cheater, continued bad policies of republican party

20 James K. Polk James Knox Polk was the 11th president of the United States, serving from 1845 to 1849. He previously was Speaker of the House of Representatives and governor of Tennessee.
21 Gerald Ford Gerald Rudolph Ford Jr. was an American politician who served as the 38th President of the United States from August 1974 to January 1977.

Ford was an idiot.

pardoned Nixon, Nixon should have gone to jail for what he did

22 Ronald Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 . Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader until his death in 2004

Garbage who started the ruin of our country. Trees cause pollution and kids should eat ketchup. He lived way past any use he had for humans.

I saw what happened when his "trickle down" economics trickled nowhere. I saw the cuts he made to mental health and the streets of San Diego where flooded with people talking to themselves and shouting unintelligible things. How ironic that he himself became afflicted with Alzheimer's and maybe that was his problem while in office.

This president attacked every right of All Americans and did things in contrast to the constitution of the United States.

Although popular nowthat he is gone I remember having to live through10% plus inflation every year he was president.

23 Franklin Pierce Franklin Pierce was the 14th President of the United States. Pierce was a northern Democrat who saw the abolitionist movement as a fundamental threat to the unity of the nation.

And below is a clone of Lyndon.
