Worst American Politicians


The Top Ten

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

I think she's worse than Trump. But that's just my opinion. - RiverClanRocks

Trump's worse, he wants to cut renewable energy, which will eventually ruin the whole world. - Squidward48

100 times worst than Trump. Please put her in jail.

Her supporters surrounded some women and kids who were going home after a Trump event, and attacked them with eggs, what a nice bunch of people.

An evil bitch that should rot in prison.

2 Donald Trump 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.

More attacks at Trump appearances by pro-Hillary supporters, who scream, throw rocks, set fires, and proudly wave the flag of Mexico. I wonder how the Mexican government and populace would react if a bunch of protesters showed up and disrupted one of their presidential election events in Mexico City, disrupting things and waving the US flag.

Well they would have no reason to do that, so it just wouldn't make sense - Songsta41

Who does this pathetic, loathsome, black-hearted dickless little snake think he is. Running for the most powerful office in the world with no experience and no idea what he's doing, appointing totalitarian sociopaths to high positions of power, running on a platform consisting entirely of pure hatred, fear and the glorification of irrationality and bigotry and deliberately trying to soothe his insatiable narcissism by forming a cult of brainless quislings who all talk about him like they want to screw him. The American people will never tolerate Donald Trump's blatant disregard for the benefit of everyone but himself, regardless of his army of rednecks!

I wonder if @Britgirl hates Donald Trump... does she? I know she hates Barack Obama, but I'm wondering if she hates Donald Trump as well. To be honest, Barack Obama is only a sitting duck (well, he kind of is even though I still like him) compared to the narcissistic, egotistical, racist, sexist, homophobic, annoying, stupid, American idiot complex, dumb blonde in a nutshell, sorry excuse of an American politician that is Ronald McDonald Trump. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He'll go down in history as being the worst president in the world EVER.

3 George W. Bush 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 couldn't reduce unemployment one bit towards the end of his presidency! Not to mention he started our war in Iraq! George W. Bush may not have caused 9/11, but he sure did start our war with Iraq on the excuse of WMD's in Iraq, which happened to have never existed in the first place! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He is the reason why millions of people died, he lied to the American people, and his policies caused economic problems and death to many parts of the world, he should be spending the rest of his life in prison.

I see dislikes on criticisms of George W. Bush, yet I see none of the people who like George W. Bush giving reasons why our claims are invalid. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Bush is a great man. - pancake2015

Child molestor. enough said.

5 Ted Cruz Ted Cruz Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz is an American politician and attorney serving as the junior United States Senator from Texas since 2013. He was a candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

I think he is a great man. - TealBoyxx

He’s actually a real nice guy - PumpkinKing109

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

James Buchanan failed to keep the Union strong and was not correct on the issue of slavery. He is one of America's worst presidents. - pancake2015

"Couldn't stop the Civil War? " What a grossly ignorant statement. Do you have the first clue as to what precipitated the "Civil War? "

He looks like a drunk idiot in that portrait. Oh well, it best represents how incompetent he was when he couldn't stop the Civil War.

This guy was pretty bad. - shiftaltkey

He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt ...read more.

Before you go and call me a brainwashed Obamabot, let me tell you some things Barack Obama has done for the economy. Technically, he did deal well with the Bush deficit and managed to decrease unemployment. It's just that he didn't do nothing about the federal debt, which is perhaps the most bad thing about him in all. He's not the best president ever, but you can at least thank him for reducing unemployment, something George W. Bush couldn't do. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Obama was so bad. I'm really glad he left the White House. He did absolutely nothing for America. - pancake2015

One of the worst Presidents in American history - pancake2015

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.

This guy should be in the top ten. This corrupt weasel was one of the most authoritarian presidents in U.S. history. Although he did do some good things (Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act), he didn't get us out of Vietnam until 1973 and even when he did, he was planning to go back in. He was also very against the legalization of marijuana and used racist reasons to justify keeping cannabis illegal and arresting minorities for it. And of course, the Watergate Scandal: shameless. - shiftaltkey

Actually he was liberal... but the most corrupt. Probably Dylan Chelsey Mill's boyfriend.


I wouldn't call him the worst U.S president in history (but he would be in my top 5 with James Buchanan), but considering he's the first U.S president to ever resign in U.S history and was affiliated with the Watergate Scandal, that kind of gives Richard Nixon a bad reputation. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He had many great ideas, was nice, and shared my political views (Liberal), but he didn't get much accomplished and also was responsible for the Iran Hostage Crisis... - shiftaltkey

A really nice guy, but he had no idea what he was doing.

This "really nice guy" has never met a third-world dictator he wouldn't hug.

President Carter is a nice man, but his policies just didn't work. - pancake2015

15 Herbert Hoover 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.

An absolute hypocrite does not even describe how slimy and greedy he is.

Obama in power: No Supreme Court justice nominated by Obamacommie.

Trump in power: We automatically love anyone he picks.

Problems: The constitution requires the senate to fill a Supreme Court vacancy upon the death, resignation, or retirement of a justice. Also the "Biden rule" does not exist.

18 Franklin D. Roosevelt Franklin D. Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events ...read more.

Why is he on here? I thought he was a good president. Sure, he may have put the United States in a lot of debt after World War II, but he managed to pull us out of the Great Depression. If you're going to use communism as an excuse to hate him, you're wrong. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This guy did many great things, and also terrible things. I don't think he should be on the top 20 worst, but he should be kept in check in regards to what he did to Japanese-Americans (Internment). - shiftaltkey

"He managed to pull us out of the Great Depression." Are you aware that the Depression lasted only two years globally, but ten years in the U.S. due to Roosevelt's socialist policies? Do you approve of his turning over half of Europe to Stalinist terror and tyranny, from which it did not emerge for 44 years?

This guy murdered people to get into WWII. - lm93

19 Jeb Bush Jeb Bush John Ellis "Jeb" Bush is an American businessman and politician who served as the 43rd Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007.

This guy, although one of the more moderate Republicans that I actually share some agreements with, is a wimp. He let's other politicians dominate his arguments and plus...he's a Bush...ugh. - shiftaltkey

20 Ben Allen

I don't know who this is. - shiftaltkey

21 Pete Sessions

This guy is a horrible authoritarian that repeatedly restricts the will of the people of texas to have a real discussion on the legalization and decriminalization of medical and recreational cannabis. I hate this guy with a passion. - shiftaltkey

22 Bernie Sanders 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.

He will be really great until he runs out of your money to give to people who did not earn it.

A complete numbskull in every sense of the word. Clinton, awful as she is, at least has a kindergarten-level intellect. And Trump should not be anywhere near the top ten.

He's going to turn America into socialist Venezuela. - RockFashionista

About as crooked as they come, kickbacks, dirty deals, vote fraud, insider contracts, and that's just the garden variety greed and dishonesty.
Probably the worst thing he did was manufacture the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, which did not actually happen, but was an excuse for the US to enter the Vietnam conflict in a big way, which adversely affected America's national direction for decades.

"He started the Vietnam war." Apparently, you're a history scholar. Not a fan of LBJ, but he did NOT "start" the Vietnam war. It was JFK that inserted "military advisors" into Vietnam.

He started the Vietnam War... he's basically the Democrat version of George W. Bush. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
