Worst Things That Happened In 2016

The Top Ten

2016 U.S. Presidential Election

Don't blame Donald Trump for winning; blame Hillary Clinton.

It's obvious that Donald Trump should have never even gotten close to being a potential candidate for the presidency, but to be honest Hillary was the worst choice. We all know she's a pretty horrible person who is willing to do anything for power and the spotlight. So lets be honest with ourselves, would we want a semi-honest semi-idiot in power, or a lying politician who is manipulating the system to her own advantage?

It was obvious through her leaked e-mails, media activity and through her campaign that she was doing everything in her power in order to win. She rigged the primaries so that the Republicans would choose the worst possible candidate, had every major television channel and social media site talk down on Donald Trump, covered up her illness, and focused her entire campaign around talking down Trump.

With all this mind its obvious why America voted for Trump and not Hillary. People are ...more

It caused massive divisiveness regardless of what side you were on. Trump supporters all getting lumped in with nazis, and Hillary supporters all getting lumped in with communists. It was awful. Could life be civil again?

A guy who can't even control his hair has been given control of the nuclear codes.

This election has the potential of being one of the most tragic events in the history of this country. For me it has nothing to with economic policies, diplomacy or any of the stated job duties for the President. It has to do with the fact that we have told our children that it is ok to be a bully, a racist, a sexist and liar. We have elected an individual who suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. This is, for me, the great tragedy.

Do you always have to play the "child" card to advance your agenda? And what's worse: possibly being whatever-ist, or possibly being a criminal who took so many lives because of their crooked schemes and having the police be wrapped around their finger?

Shooting in Orlando, Florida

I know right, I saw this on the news. However, I still find 2016 mediocre.

In about a second, somebody in the US will start shooting up a public place. It's probably happening now.

You guys think that Donald Trump winning and Harambe was worse than SHOOTINGS?

May the people who died rest in piece. :'(

Bastille Day Terrorist Attack In Nice, France

A terrorist drove a truck into people, killing 84, in France, in Bastille Day.

I honesty don't like Kim Kardashian but she didn't deserved to be in that situation at all.

Guys, the deaths of celebrities are sad but they have no reason to be higher than actual terrorist attacks.

One more victim died later on, putting the death toll to 85

Donald Trump Elected U.S. President

Really? I mean, he has said some inappropriate things I don't approve of. Donald Trump being a racist misogynist is just a lie told by the media used to manipulate ignorant people and innocents.

Disgusting Human Being! A Pivotal moment in how that world now see the United States. They think we have lost our minds. 48% of the US did!

I just voted to comment on this. This list is made from Democrats and Liberals. Guarantee it.

And people thought Hillary was "crooked"...Just look at his track record! He has no place in the White House. I am ashamed that my country elected a racist, misogynist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, bigoted man like him to be their president.

2 year old gets attacked by an alligator in Disneyworld

There were a lot of bad stuff that happened in 2016 but my cousin dying was the worst, no lie, the little boy was my cousin.

There was a father, a mother and a 2 year old. They were in the disney castle in the lake. One gator took the 2 year old and KILLED him. Same thing with the dad but with a different gator. The mother was crying. This is why I don't want to go to disney land again.-KyokoKuchisakeSuccubi

I just hate it when things like this happen.

This is really helpful I am writing a paper for school about this. and I am so sorry that this happened I send my condolences.

The Bombing In Brussels, Belgium

I was there when that happened. But the hotel we stayed was far away from the bombings. While we walked down the streets, some teens decided to prank the people in the streets that there was a terrorist there. But luckily they were arrested. I'm also glad we were far away from the bombing.

I feel so bad for the victims and words cannot describe how much my heart goes out to those families. I hope that terrorism ends and the leader of ISIS dies (that leader, whoever it is, deserves it).

This killed more than the Dallas shooting

What a present for me. It was in my birthday. Screw you, 2016!

Death of Carrie Fisher

She was Leia from Star Wars. 2016 is the worst enemy. This may be worse than David Bowie's death.

Two-and-a-half months my junior, I have had a fondness fir her for many years. Debbie's death I understand. Carrie's death makes no sense whatsoever. For the first time in decades I shed tears of er the passing of a celebrity. There may be more to come...

She played one of the greatest female roles ever. Her life was tragic, her death was worst. But her legacy lives on in the greatest movie series of all time.

She was an icon and will never be forgotten.

Death of David Bowie

He was a great musician, it's a major example of good people dying and bad people living on, his music was amazing and unforgettable, now we can't listen to good music anymore because good singers are being replaced by bad people like Justin Bieber when they die.

It's shocking that this year, although not a serious issue, we lost one of the most influential male singers in the world.

They kept Bieber and took away bowie my girlfriend is still sad about it

That decade is cursed. Lots of bad stuff happened.

Dallas Police Shooting

I know that we've recently been seeing a lot of cases involving crooked cops abusing their power, but we need to remember that not all police officers are bad. The noble, fair police officers keep our communities safe. Our cities would be much worse off without a police department to protect law-abiding citizens from murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and other dangerous criminals. Those Dallas police officers didn't deserve to be shot. They had nothing to do with the recent shootings of African-American males. They were just doing their jobs. People, please stop acting like all police officers are evil! It's as foolish as believing that all Muslims are terrorists! It's the bad cops that deserve to be hated, not all cops in general.

Annoying Orange Caused This Because He Thinks Violence is Funny.

This event was chaos we just been through the Orlando shooting than this than after few days the attack in nice was going to start 2016 nice attack

This should be in the top 3 the event was caught on tape Orlando nightclub shooting was the deadliest terrorist attack since the September 11 attacks while the 2016 shooting of dallas police officers was the deadliest day for lawinfocement since the September 11 attacks

Orlando Shooting Attack

This is already on the list.

The worst mass shooting in recent US history.

50 gay people were shot dead by some homophobic idiot. At least they consider this as a terrorist attack And not only a massacre.

Very sad, especially since this is where I was born.

The Contenders

Death of Christina Grimmie

We lost an important singer, all because some guy shot her.

This was awful, it’s sad that she got shot while signing autographs.

We lost an amazing singer and person all because some man was upset he couldn't have her all to himself and most of America just completely ignored her death even happened

Her death was something that could've been avoided and it just shows how mucked up America's system is.

Zika Virus Outbreak

I feel so sorry for all those poor people.

Another Virus straight from hell.

Zika was one of the deadliest viruses at the time and could even live in sperm making it an STD also so it could travel in basically any form and also affects unborn children.

Death of Alan Rickman

Alan Rickman was Snape in the Harry Potter movies!

It Should Have Been Annoying Orange

He died shortly after David BOWIE'S death

Alan Rickman was an amazing actor and life without Severus Snape is not life.

Fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

This was a bad fire burned lots of houses and buildings, I remember when people had to come to my town and other towns because of the fire

Really bad fire cost losts of damage their still not 100% built in 2019 since may 3 2016 when that bad fire happened

This was a sad fire in 2016, I remember when people came to grande prairie alberta because of the fire, and grande prairie public school District accepted students that were evacuated

This was a bad fire, I remember it destroyed lots of stuff in fort mcmurry alberta, they probably still rebuilding, it was also terrifying for people, I remember hearing about the fire a lot when it happend

2016 Istanbul Airport Attack

We lost 36 people because of a bombing.

Can't believe it, the airport I was once at in 2014 was attacked, breaks my heart :'(

I was just there in 2015. I can't believe this happened

This was worse than the Dallas shooting

New Ebola Cases In Africa

One day it is declared that de decease has finished, the next there is a new case

Something needs to be done. We need to be more careful when working with sick people.

That was 2014.

I have ebola

Hurricane Matthew

So sad. It was really powerful. I feel so bad for those people.

Category 4 hurricane that hit the Caribbean, Haiti and caused major flooding.
Killed up to 900 people, 877 in Haiti, and 19 in the US so far.

Stupid haiti

Devastating storm hit east coast of U.S flooding Rip everyone who died

Death of Prince

Give us back Prince, David Bowie, and Michael Jackson. We'll give you the Kardashians, Justin Beiber, and Donald Trump.

Bring back Stephen Hawking and Elvis Presley. We give you One Direction and Hillary Clinton. - TeamRocket747

He was a great musician, his music was classic.

Why Prince and not the bad singers?

Why Prince and Not Nicki Minaj?!

Harambe's Death

Harambe didn't even hurt the boy. He just checked on him. Hell, the boy wouldn't even have fell in if his mother had done a better job with him.

He was trying to keep the child away from the screaming adults and neglectful parent that just dropped her kid into a gorilla enclosure

... Why. WHY you killed that innocent thing! You monster

Get over the dXmn gorilla he was going to end up killing that kid and then people would discriminate gorillas

Syrian Hospital Airstrike

Attacking a hospital is a war crime!

Uri Terror Attack

Add it

Gatlinburg North Carolina Wildfire

Quite sad. I never thought something like this would happen in my state. I give my thanks to the people of North Carolina who worked hard over the Thanksgiving holiday to contain the wildfires.

It sucks a lot because my family lost our rental cottage there

2 teenagers decide to play around with fire for the fun of it. What is the result? The burning of thousands of building in Gatlinburg and Piegon Forge.

All the good resorts including the westgate there burned down and it was so terrible. That's where I vacation to every year and it's all gone because some crazy person did this. - AggressiveBlaze

I want to punish those guys to no end for what they did to one of the most beautiful places I've been. - railfan99

Lahore Suicide Bombing

75 people were killed, 29 of them being children They were all just having fun at a park for Easter, then someone thought it was okay to do a suicide bombing there. How evil. Yet this wasn't all over the news.
