Well yes, he is the worst leader the USA has had to date, and he is bat 
shit crazy pending a diagnosis by any doctor who won't instantly be 
fired; but you underestimate the human capacity for bad leadership and 
bat shit crazy.

Consider Baby Doc Duvalier, who ran Haiti into the ground, and Anastasio 
Somoza Debayle, who failed to rebuild Nicaragua after the 1972 
earthquake.  Consider Benito Mussolini, who was so toxic to Italy that 
they executed him, and his monarch Victor Emmanuel III, who was so 
ineffective at controlling Mussolini that the Italian people banished 
the monarchy altogether.  And what the hell happened with the Nepali 
royal family?

How about Robert Mugabe, who, notwithstanding his heroic leadership in 

2000s, and Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo who heads the world's most 
corrupt government?  Then there are Kim Jung-il, who took North Korea 
from a respectable communist dictatorship to a starving concentration 


Adolf Hitler is automatically worse than anyone else, but how sane can 
you be to attack Russia during the winter?

And finally, I seem to recall a King George III of Canada et al., who 
was so bat shit insane that he lost all of his colonies to the south.

Pervasive human incompetence is literally the reason Jehovah's Witnesses 
are waiting for Jesus to come back.

I'm positive this list is far from complete.  How bad was Nero, for example?
