I was in college when Ronnie Raygun was elected.

I never dreamed I would dislike any president as much as I disliked him. Then came Bush 2 with his WMD lies and endless wars. Now there's Trump destroying the progress we made over the last 8 years. It is almost surreal to me that he ever got elected. This racist, sexist pig is already proving to be the worst president in my lifetime. I am an atheist but I pray to whatever for impeachment.

5. I thought that I hated Reagan the most until Trump came.

What is sad if I had no choice but choose between the two to vote for I would take ol Ronnnie.

6. That is very sad but I agree.

Reagan was an amiable old idiot stuck in the past. A hateful warmonger and a mean-spirited person.

Trump is waaay worse.

9. My roommates and I used to flip off the TV every time he came on.

Couldn't stand him.

This Trump asshole is, unbelievably, worse.

13. I can't even watch a documentary about Reagan.

I find him so repulsive. I tried watching the American Experience documentary. I managed to watch it once, but I can't watch it again.

I would rather watch Trump than Reagan any day. At least Trump's buffoonery provides some entertainment. Reagan's beady eyes and dead seriousness made my skin crawl.

15. He was a heartless bastard with absolutely no compassion.

He made me sick.

And conservatives consider him a god. Go figure.

11. Actually, I think Trump may not only be the worst President ever, but very possibly the worst

American ever born (the jury is out on the various serial killers, but give him some more time)

12. Worse?: Anything the GOP throws out there is terrible for the middleclass/lower class.

Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, Trump...they were all (and are) focused on the same agenda: destroy the middle class.
And they are succeeding.
It's a class war, and nothing less.
I think we had it right with Occupy Wall Street, but that sadly ended.

17. I never thought I'd look back on Dubya as the good old days.

He must be the only person in America truly happy about Trump. Finally . . . there's one worse.

21. I was an infant when Reagan was elected

And a 3rd grader when he left office so I'm too young to remember his administration.

But I never thought I would long for the days of W.

22. I long for the days of Obama.

Not that long ago but it seems like it.

But dumb Dubya was better than this.
