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:

"Who was actually the worst President in US History and why?"


The 17th, but also an unceremonious "first"

"Andrew Johnson."

"He only became President because he was VP when Lincoln was assassinated."

"He basically tried to obstruct/reverse as much of Lincoln's policy as he possibly could."

"Inept, regressive . . . the first President to be impeached."

"Unworthy."

"A President that never should have been . . ."- OutsideSpring

"Andrew Johnson paved the way for the KKK to form in the aftermath of the civil war."- Random_puns

"Andrew Johnson is directly responsible for much of why the US is f*cked up today."

"TLDR: land redistribution after the civil war could’ve set up former slaves to be on equal footing with white people."

"Instead, Johnson made sure they got nothing."- caldo4

So bad they weren't even mentioned by name.

"The two presidents before Lincoln and his successor are usually ranked as the worst ones by historians."- DanSRedskins

"The 'Trail of Tears' guy wasn't great."- RudigherJones

Seriously, how do people like this get elected?

"Grover Cleveland assaulted a woman, got her pregnant, promised to take of her, and had her name the baby after a friend of his that passed away."

"He had a doctor he knew deliver the baby, then kidnapped it and had his sister raise it."

"Then he had the woman committed to a mental institution."

"When all this came out, he painted her to be mentally unstable and a drunk."

"He claimed she didn’t know who the father was and had several men come forward and lie saying they all had been with her."

"He also made it a point to mention that she had named the baby after who she thought the father was, and that wasn’t him."

"The guy was dead so he couldn’t say anything."

"He convinced everyone he had tried to help her by having her put away to get help and by finding the baby a good family because he assumed the father to be his deceased friend who the child was named after and he was just wanting to do the right thing."

"He also married the daughter of a friend and business partner."

"He doted on her as a child and bought her a baby carriage."

"When her dad died when she was 11, he was more like a father figure."

"Until she got older and then he started sending her flowers."

"Everyone assumed he was courting her mother until the two of them popped up and got married."- TheMudbloodSlytherin

A war is never a good way to end a Presidency

"James Buchanan."

"The Civil War escalated to the levels that it did because of his inaction."

"His presidency was by far the most disastrous in history."

"He’s at the bottom of every conceivable list."- LFCSpectre

"James Buchanan."

"Encouraging secession and setting the stage for the civil war puts him at the top without much debate."- jah05r

Andrew doesn't seem to be a name befitting a President

"Jackson and Johnson."- ConnieLingus24

In the eyes of others, maybe there was a President worse than the 45th.

A man with more impeachments than terms as President.

Perhaps its still too soon, and everyone's just trying to forget it ever happened...

Most of us are lucky enough to say that we've never found ourselves in a truly "life or death" situation.

While almost everyone has had a turbulent flight, dangerous experiences on the road, or maybe a deep cut that ended up requiring stitches, we don't usually question whether or not we'll come out alive in those situations.

There are those, however, who did feel like they had come face to face with death once in their life.

As well as others who were in a potentially fatal situation without even realizing it.

Everyone has wild stories from their workplace.

But the stories that tend to instantly grab people's attention are those about instances which led people to quit.

But how about moments where not one person, but multiple people, if not the entire staff, all banded together and left?

Far-fetched as it may seem, there have indeed been occasions where an entire workforce was so over their conditions, that they all gave their notice in unison.
