In the midst of all the controversies caused by the current President of the US, Americans are reconsidering some of the darkest moments in their history. Although a relatively young country, America has had a series of really bad politicians. Here are the top five!
Donald Trump is the current President of the United States, as well as the most controversial politician in the American history. Apart from being openly sexist and racist, he is constantly trying to undermine the work of every progressive group in the American society.
Although the only person on this list who has never served as the President, Hillary Clinton is one of the most despised American politicians. It seems that no one has anything nice to say about her. Apart from being unlikable, she also did nothing of importance during her political career.
George W. Bush
George W. Bush was the President of the United States from 2001 to 2009. Although he was pretty popular before he climbed up the ladder, his presidency was disappointed to say the least. Apart from not being able to do anything to reduce unemployment, he is also said to be the reason why so many American soldiers died fighting in the Middle East.
Richard Nixon was the President of the United States from 1969 to 1974. He is at the same time one of the most famous and most despised American politicians of all time. Apart from being the first to resign from the presidential position, he was also one of the main figures in the Watergate Scandal.
Jimmy Carter was the President of the United States from 1977 to 1981. Although he was given the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, many people consider him one of the worst American politicians of all time. The thing about him was that he was actually a very nice person, but knew nothing about politics.
