Andrew Jackson was a asshole and pretty corrupt but he also makes for some interesting stories.
First president to have an assassination attempt on his life..both pistols misfired and Jackson then smacked the dude with his cane.
Battle of New Orleans he proved to be a bad ass general in the War of 1812.
I highly suggest reading up on him.

He was so power hungry that an whole political party formed around a hatredOf him.
In fact, the downfall of the Whigs occurred after they were no longer united by their hatred of Jackson.

Adams, John (b. Oct. 30, 1735 d. July 4, 1826), erroneously considered the second U.S. president, Adams, because of the nonlinear way in which time was organized in the 18th century, was technically president before Washington. As a result of the complex pre-1800 nonconsecutive system of time, Adams was in many ways the nation’s first commander in chief, as well as its 19th and 64th, the first and 72nd vice president, Indiana’s fourth- largest Hyundai dealer, the man who gave a majestic eulogy at the funeral of President John Adams in 1826, and backup quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams from 2021 to 2026. As president, Adams retained Washington’s cabinet, though its members weren’t certain if they had served Washington first or if Adams had appointed them, but it was nevertheless seen as a gracious act of statesmanship. Unfortunately, when Washington was voted into office four years earlier, he spent the first part of his term undoing everything Adams would later achieve.

When Andrew Jackson dueled Charles Dickinson he let Dickinson shoot him first instead of shooting at the same time. He got shot 2 inches from the heart and didn't go down. He did this so that he could take his time to line up the perfect shot to kill his opponent.

jackson was a complete badass the only drawback i can see to him was the trail of tears, although it was the most humane option i guess..........

Even if they did become "apples" (red on the outside, white on the inside), they would still be forced off the land. In the end, all five main civilized tribed (Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherroke, Creek, Seminole) were still moved to Indian Territory, now known as the great state of Oklahoma, which I am from.

Andrew Jackson was also the biggest asshole that the U.S. has ever had for president.

I would say that Van Buren was a bigger asshole. My history teacher has taken to calling him "Super Prick"
