When traveling and seeing the world, it is always best to also understand the lay of the land.

That seems to be something we forget.

As tourists, it's suddenly, "All bets are off. I have no manners. And I'm here to burn down the town!"

You know people still live and work there right?

But then there's Reddit...

The day Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, people literally took to the streets to celebrate, giving an idea that people weren't so sad to see his predecessor leave office.

Indeed, many think so ill of the 45th President of the United States, that people have a hard time even saying or writing his name.

Throughout his tumultuous, often headline-making four years in office, he was frequently referred to as the "worst President of all time."

But was he?

Redditor Unaball3r was curious to hear who the Reddit community considered the all time worst leader of the free world, leading them to ask:
