Historian Says Biden On Pace to Become Worst President In History


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

A presidential historian noted on President’s Day, of all occasions, that Joe Biden is on track to become the worst leader in the country’s history. New York Times best-selling author Craig Shirley told Just the News’ podcast on Monday: “I ranked him among our five worst presidents in American history.”

The ranking was initially based on an article authored by Shirley, which was written one year after Joe Biden took office as President. Shirley has now revealed that he plans to update the ranking two years after Biden was inaugurated.

“He’s actually going to become the worst president in American history,” Shirley told the program.

Just the News added: “Most recently, he got backlash for choosing to go to Ukraine instead of going to East Palestine, Ohio where people are dealing with the aftermath of the train derailment, resulting in toxic chemicals affecting the community. Shirley, a former adviser to Ronald Reagan, accused Biden of trying to destroy American exceptionalism.”

“Everything he does seems to be about destroying American exceptionalism, the American experiment, and the American creed,” he stated. “I’ve come to the conclusion he’s doing it on purpose.”


Biden and his team have repeatedly stated that he intends to run for re-election in 2024. But last month, things took a dramatic turn after classified documents were discovered in the garage of Biden’s Wilmington home as well as his think tank. There are also questions surrounding a lack of transparency on why the U.S. Secret Service does not have any visitor logs from Biden’s Delaware home.

Fox News host Sean Hannity suggested that members of Biden’s “inner circle” could be conspiring behind the scenes to prevent him from launching a 2024 re-election campaign. Hannity speculated that Biden’s classified document scandal could result in some Democrats persuading the president not to seek another term.

“Joe Biden has been caught mishandling classified documents yet again. For the second time this week. We are now learning that secret material from the Obama administration turned up in another private unsecured office accessed by Joe Biden during his time as a private citizen. I think it’s time for a Mar-a-Lago-style raid to happen at Joe Biden’s private residences where he’s building a wall, by the way,” Hannity began.

Hannity added: “Or maybe someone in Joe’s inner circle. Think about this. Why is this happening twice in a week? Could this be the result? Maybe someone doesn’t want Joe to run for reelection. While we absolutely don’t know that to be a fact, it’s certainly suspicious in terms of timing. But what’s good for the goose is certainly good for the gander… right Merrick Garland? Right, Chris Wray? They are the ones that personally approved of the raid at Mar a Lago and former President Trump’s home.”



Others joined Hannity in speculating that someone may have leaked the fact that Biden had classified documents in order to potentially prevent him from seeking a second term.

Former GOP congressional candidate David Giglio tweeted: “It’s no coincidence that Biden’s classified document scandal breaks just as he starts to commit to seeking re-election in 2024. The Democrats assumed he wouldn’t and now they are going to ensure he can’t. He served his purpose. Gavin Newsom is the pick.”

Former Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield tweeted: “Operation Oust Biden continues… a second set of classified docs found. Gavin Newsom is in the bullpen warming up.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. Secret Service revealed last month that while a protection unit is assigned to Biden’s Delaware home, they do not record visitors. “We don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence,” spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told reporters, though he later admitted that some visitors were recorded.

Republicans have demanded answers on the lack of transparency on Biden’s Delaware home visitor logs.

Kentucky GOP Rep. James Comer said: “President Biden has spent a large amount of time at his Delaware residence since assuming office. Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president. The Biden Administration must provide transparency to the American people.”
