The verdict of history is in: America’s 38 dead presidents have sounded off on Donald Trump and they are not impressed. From George Washington to Ronald Reagan, they think he’s a walking dumpster fire. Even Trump’s hero Andrew Jackson calls 45 a “worse bigot than I was.” If the dead presidents were voting, Trump would lose in a landslide to James Buchanan, who until recently was considered the worst president of all time.
Here are some opinions the dead presidents shared on Twitter this year.

On his golf habit:
Some say Trump golfs too much. I kinda like it when he’s golfing. Mainly because he’s golfing and not destroying America.

On his presidency so far:
119 days into Trump’s administration, and Billy Joel could already add about 8 minutes to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” …. pic.twitter.com/oWkWKtuXke

No President has been perfect. We all end up doing things for which we have to answer to God.
But none has disgraced the nation like Trump.

If you compare me to that SOB Trump you have another thing coming. He’s a grifter and a crook of the worst water. That’s all there is to it. https://t.co/9LMqPnUBs5

Finally, one defense — of his diet:
Plenty of things to not like about Trump, but leave the man’s McDonalds order out of this. Low blow – family and takeout should be above partisan criticism. Shame on you lunch-shamers!
