A comprehensive list of Presidents who were more presidential than Trump

During a campaign rally last night in Ohio, Donald Trump made the laughable claim that he was “more presidential” than any other President barring Abraham Lincoln. Responding to criticism that his late night Twitter rants, rambling interviews, and public attacks on politicians, cabinet members, and celebrities were unworthy of the office, Trump told the crowd, “It is much easier to act presidential than what we are doing here tonight, believe me.”

“With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office. I think that with few exceptions, no president has done anywhere near what we’ve done in his first six months. Not even close,” he added.

To help Donald Trump out, we’ve compiled an exhaustive list of Presidents who were more presidential than Trump. In order, they are:

George Washington, 1789-1797 John Adams, 1797-1801 Thomas Jefferson, 1801-1809 James Madison, 1809-1817 James Monroe, 1817-1825 John Quincy Adams, 1825-1829 Andrew Jackson, 1829-1837* Martin Van Buren, 1837-1841 William Henry Harrison, 1841 John Tyler, 1841-1845 James Knox Polk, 1845-1849 Zachary Taylor, 1849-1850 Millard Fillmore, 1850-1853 Franklin Pierce, 1853-1857 Abraham Lincoln, 1861-1865 Andrew Johnson, 1865-1869 Ulysses S. Grant, 1869-1877 Rutherford Birchard Hayes, 1877-1881 James Abram Garfield, 1881 Chester Alan Arthur, 1881-1885 Grover Cleveland, 1885-1889 Benjamin Harrison, 1889-1893 Grover Cleveland, 1893-1897 William McKinley, 1897-1901 Theodore Roosevelt, 1901-1909 William Howard Taft, 1909-1913 Woodrow Wilson, 1913-1921 Warren Gamaliel Harding, 1921-1923 Calvin Coolidge, 1923-1929 Herbert Clark Hoover, 1929-1933 Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933-1945 Harry S. Truman, 1945-1953 Dwight David Eisenhower, 1953-1961 John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 1961-1963 Lyndon Baines Johnson, 1963-1969 Richard Milhous Nixon, 1969-1974 Gerald Rudolph Ford, 1974-1977 James Earl Carter, Jr., 1977-1981 Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1981-1989 George Herbert Walker Bush, 1989-1993 William Jefferson Clinton, 1993-2001 George Walker Bush, 2001-2009 Barack Hussein Obama, 2009-2016

Presidents who were worse than Donald Trump

James Buchanan, 1857-1861, (America’s gay president) is often considered the worst president by historians. He allowed seven slave states to succeed from the nation, kicking off the American Civil War. He did nothing to prevent it and said it was not his job to “restore peace and harmony among the states.”

Trump is trying to start another civil war in America using Twitter and the bully pulpit to urge his followers to engage in violence. Trump hasn’t been successful yet, leaving Buchanan as the only leader of the United States less presidential than Trump.

*Andrew Jackson was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Native Americans, but he was devoted to his wife. Trump, a serial sexual abuser and philanderer,  is desperately trying to steal health care from millions of Americans causing an untold number of deaths. Let’s call this one a tie.
