The headline reads:
History experts in New York Times op-ed: Trump worst president ever, Obama in top 10
This is from the USA Today, or as Louisville Lefty deprecatingly called it, the “McPaper.” It was, though, one of the newspapers to which he subscribed and used in his work. The original article can be found with this headline:
How Does Trump Stack Up Against the Best — and Worst — Presidents?
Actually, the Donald
is not “stacked up” but “stacked down.” All of the other POTUS are stacked upon Donald poppinJay Trump because he finished on the bottom as the worst POTUS in history. He is a LOSER!
From the article: “Let’s say that, according to the 170 members of the American Political Science Association’s Presidents and Executive Politics section who filled out our survey, he has at least three years to improve on an ignominious debut.”
A book currently being read, HOMELAND SECURITY ATE MY SPEECH,
by Ariel Dorfman,
caused me to reflect upon the Trumpster’s “ignominious” ranking. Obama’s (or as I came to think of him, Obummer) top-ten placing no doubt has caused the TrumPet much grief. Good, I say, because poppinJay has caused We The People much of the same! The man (and I use the word loosely) is a JOKE. Unfortunately, the joke is on US…
The book is a wonderful collection of essays written for other publications. “Time magazine calls the author a “literary grandmaster.”
In chapter eight we find the author writing a letter to the Donald as former POTUS James Buchanan,
the man the Trumpster replaced on the bottom of the list of POTUS.
How long have I waited for your advent, prayed for someone like you to come along? All these years, since my death in 1868, I have watched each election cycle, hoping that finally my savior would appear, a man – heaven forbid it should be a woman! – who would rescue me from my status as the worst president in the annals of the United States.
Limited as your knowledge of our past may be, surely you are aware that I have been blamed for the seccession (sic) of the Southern states in 1861, just as my term was ending. Unfairly faulted for the Civil War that ensued, I am now relieved to know that the presidency will soon be in the hands of someone who will, I am certain, go down in history as a leader who most bitterly divided the nation and undermined the foundations of our democracy.”
I have read the first two parts and it only gets better!
