1. Joe McCarthy. Obvious choice here that requires no further clarification of reasoning. 2. Richard Nixon. The prosecutorial misconduct involved in bringing him down is only now starting to come to light. Additionally, he is often blamed for the Vietnam War when in reality, the war was at its peak when he got into office and American troop involvement went down considerably every year he was in office. He was on the verge of getting us out of Vietnam on far better terms than what were eventually settled on. The left could not afford to let Nixon succeed in Vietnam. If you want to criticize Nixon, criticize him for creating the Environmental Protection Agency. 3. Donald Trump. Where do you even begin? He is constantly being accused of crimes that never even occurred. He is called a racist for absolutely no reason.
