Did You Realize That Donald Trump Is TEH WORST PRESIDENT OF ALL THE TIMES???

And he became the worst in just one year! Worse that the genocidal maniac Andrew Jackson! Worse than the incomparably bad Richard Nixon! Worse that Dubya, initiator of the pointless and catastrophic Gulf War Episode II: The Phantom Menace! 
   And Obama's a top-10 president? Ahead of both Clinton and Madison? I mean...I love the guy...but...c'mon. He did do his part to prevent global economic collapse...but I have no idea how much responsibility we can really attribute to him for the world economy not collapsing. I don't see that the ACA is enough to boost him into the top 10. He got OBL, and that was big and he deserves a ton of credit for that. But then there's Libya... Not to mention the domestic craziness in his Ed. department and DoJ...
   Buncha recency bias is what it is, obviously.

Drum had some good commentary on this. It appears even historians bias in favor of the latter Presidents (lived through their terms, more familiar with what they did, can relate better, etc).

Even Jackson wasn't as bad as the pre-civil-war democrats and know-nothings. The (original) guilded era Republicans were downright awful as well. But...this is hardly a commendation for Trump, when *these* are the comparisons people are making. Ironically, even GWB is getting ranked relatively high lately, slas a direct comparison to Trump: "Miss me yet?"
