Andrew Jackson: Most Terrifying Man Ever Elected President

– Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States was a hard partying, hard fighting, hard crazy, ugly, ugly, son of a bitch who took the
highest office in the land because he felt like it. What were you gonna do, stop him? He’d like to see you try. When he wasn’t busy shaping the presidency as we know it today, you can find Jackson out
behind the White House dueling. The number of duels that
he took part in varies depending on what source you consult. Some say 13, while others
rank that number somewhere in the hundreds. Both of which are entirely too
many times for a reasonable human being voluntarily
stand in front of someone who is shooting at them. On one occasion, Jackson challenged a man named
Charles Dickenson to a duel. The reason behind it wasn’t
important, not to us, and certainly not to Jackson. Jackson was even kind
enough to give Dickenson the first volley. Dickenson happily obliged and shot Jackson who preceded to shake
it off like a bee sting. When Jackson returned the favor, Dickenson wasn’t so lucky. And that’s why his face isn’t on the 20. Andrew Old Hickory Jackson
ran for president in 1828. If you’re wondering how he
got such a lame nickname, it’s because he used to
carry around a hickory cane and beat people senseless with it. And if you’re wondering why he did that, it’s because he was a (beep) lunatic. Despite the best efforts of his opponents, the justice system, and
whatever force balances the tenuous order of the
universe, he succeeded. Jackson’s first act in office
was to throw a huge party. Less of a civilized celebratory gala and more of a political burning man. More than 20,000 people
showed up for his inaugural open White House, during
which the crowd got so rowdy, that Jackson himself was
forced to sneak out a window. It wasn’t until someone had
the bright idea to place tubs of whiskey on the White
House lawn that Jackson was able to sneak back into the house and actually start being president. Jackson’s presidency wasn’t
all Animal House style shenanigans, however, he
was also the first president on whom an assassination attempt was made. It was Richard Lawrence the Third who, in a futile attempt to out crazy Jackson, believed he was the
rightful king of England and that murdering Jackson
would secure his claim to the throne because,
according to Lawrence, Jackson killed his father in 1832, even though Lawrence’s father
had never been to America and actually died in 1823. Either Jackson could kill
through space and time or Lawrence is simply the kind of crazy we just don’t make anymore. He attacked Jackson
while attending a funeral brandishing two pistols,
both of which misfired. Jackson then turned and calmly
preceded to beat Lawrence to near death with his cane
until the president’s aids pulled him off the would be assassin. If you’re thinking that
Lawrence’s guns misfired because he lubricated
them with rabbit’s blood or somethin’ else crazy, they
were inspected afterwards and determined to be in
perfect working order. We’re pretty sure that the
bullets, like everyone else, were just scared of Jackson. The legacies of many great
men are measured by the words of profound wisdom they leave us. Andrew Jackson is no different. Upon reflection of his life and works, he was quoted as saying,
“I have only two regrets, “I didn’t shoot Henry Clay “and I didn’t hang John C. Calhoun.” That’s right, in a life
rich with national partying and spontaneous murder,
Jackson’s only regret was that he didn’t kill
quite enough people, people who like Calhoun who
was Jackson’s vice president. (gun shooting) – Hi, um, I’m one of Cody
Johnson’s wacky characters that he does ’cause he can’t
just talk like a human and do things seriously when
he wants to make a point. I’m using this one to
tell you to, you know, subscribe if you want
to one of our channels. We’ve only got the one, do
it on the Cracked internet. Bye! And I’m (beep) Cody. Should subscribe to it.

  1. CONTENT CREATOR – you're a FUCKING Ass hole – are you a Shill for Google = ABC, Inc?? SHAME THE HELL OUT OF YOU!!!!!! Welcome to George Orwell's 1984 (re-writing history):

  2. The "other" things andrew jackson did: fought off the banks which helped ignite american industral revolution, defeated the british at the battle of new orleans which if the british won may have stopped american expanion by controlling the Mississippi, and be an overall all right president for his time.

  3. If he saw our 24 trillion dollar debt now and how corrupt and feminized this nation has become he'd shit his pants.

  4. If it wasn't for Jackson we would have lost the War of 1812. He also killed the central bank. If it wasn't for The Trail of Tears he would probably be up on Mount Rushmore, deservedly so.

  5. Cracked doesn't like Jackson because AJ rekt the Zionists. The usurers. Cracked's handlers.

    Too bad they reclaimed control of the US 100 years later in 1913 and have been in complete control since.

  6. All it takes is a guy with balls to rule a country of wimps & cowards he thought. At least he had 13 guys who challenged him outright. Giving the guy the first volley though ? He knew something his opponents did not. Wonder who loaded the guns. Who short loaded or overloaded his ? Wonder if that assassination attempt in the cemetery with more misfired pistols was not his own men under his instruction to put up a show ( demonstration of power ) for the public by convincing someone to " assassinate " him with badly loaded pistols. This seems more accurate than the john wick persona he was trying to sell.

  7. Calhoun was his vice president because he was the runner up in elections. Vice Presidents werr selected differently then and they did not like each other because of party differences. Jackson was the man and is a good representation of how tough life was then. He was a social and political outsider then since the politicians around him were born into and groomed to be politicians. Jackson was a self made man from a South Carolina cabin. He was from the real world then and stood out next to the softer men around him.

  8. It's crazy what presidents did and got away with before cameras and TV made every second of their lives public knowledge

  9. One of my favorite presidents of ALL time!! He won more duels then any president. And makes Donald trump look like a cat

  10. The only president to abolish the central bank (federal Reserve ) and completely eliminate the national debt. Unfortunately he was horribly racist and had no problem with the native American genocide and the African slave trade.

  11. What he and his people did to the Aborigines aka (black people) is a million times worse than any of the buffoonery described in this article

    Andrew Jackson shuts down Second Bank of the U.S.

    On this day in 1833, President Andrew Jackson announces that the government will no longer use the Second Bank of the United States, the country’s national bank. He then used his executive power to remove all federal funds from the bank, in the final salvo of what is referred to as the “Bank War.”
    A national bank had first been created by George Washington and Alexander Hamilton in 1791 to serve as a central repository for federal funds. The Second Bank of the United States was founded in 1816; five years after this first bank’s charter had expired. Traditionally, the bank had been run by a board of directors with ties to industry and manufacturing, and therefore was biased toward the urban and industrial northern states. Jackson, the epitome of the frontiersman, resented the bank’s lack of funding for expansion into the unsettled Western territories. Jackson also objected to the bank’s unusual political and economic power and to the lack of congressional oversight over its business dealings.

    Jackson, known as obstinate and brutish but a man of the common people, called for an investigation into the bank’s policies and political agenda as soon as he settled in to the White House in March 1829. To Jackson, the bank symbolized how a privileged class of businessmen oppressed the will of the common people of America. He made clear that he planned to challenge the constitutionality of the bank, much to the horror of its supporters. In response, the director of the bank,

  13. Given that Calhoun was the most prominent and successful promoter of slavery in the 19th century, failure to hang Calhoun is also my greatest regret about Jackson's legacy.

  14. How did you guys forget that Thomas Jefferson shot someone on the White House steps for treason! and it took him two days to die because he gut shot him!

  15. Jackson was responsible for the Indian removal act (trail of tears). He also opposed paper money! Why he is on the 20 dollar bill is beyond my understanding! He was a bad man!

  16. This actually made me like Jackson more 😂. This guy was a freaking badass! And on top of that the only president to completely get rid of the national debt!

  17. Andrew Jackson scares the money elite, even to this day. He went after the banking system.
    This video should be named "The most patriotic President".

  18. America For AMERICA…!!!
    Save Your Future Constitutional Freedom.
    VOTE Republican, and Prosecute Democrat TREASON.

  19. So you relate the 20 to a duel where someone was killed and I call bullshit no dead bodies were stacked up from dueling. Can you be more one message at a time and not have multiple messages mixing words and visual and tone nuerolinguistically. Fuck.

  20. The reason behind the duel with Dickenson wasn't important? He insulted is wife which in those days and even today is a massive disgrace. Did you omit that fact because it wouldn't have made Jackson seem as crazy as you want?

  21. Not one thing about the centralized Bank? Makes you wonder why they even made this in the first place because at his deathbed he said that was his greatest accomplishment was killing the bank.

  22. Is this an SJW narrating this? Because they're over exaggerating everything. And taking things out of context?

  23. President Jackson fought off the central banks, which was the most important thing he could have done. I would say Franklin d. Roosevelt was the most terrifying president in history. For making the great depression worse, restricting production, raising prices, removing the gold standard, implementing the treaty of Versailles, which caused Germany's hyperinflation by giving them so much debt. It also blamed them for WWI, and restricted their military. The treaty of Versailles lead to WWII. By far the most terrifying president!

  24. Who's to say that it wasn't both? Jackson seems the type to be able to do that and we still make that kind of crazy today no problem

  25. More details about the wild Whitehouse party: Due to the massive amounts of people, visitors crowded and filled the rooms destroying furniture and everything in sight all until a fight broke out and people began to scramble. Since the doors were foo far away people BROKE AND JUMPED OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE WINDOWS and crawled down the building for safety. While old hickory was almost crushed by the mass of people, he escaped from a door behind him while others were left to cry and try to protect themselves on the puke stained floor. Dude was batshit.

  26. If I remember correctly, AJ is considered the "founder of the modern DEMOCRAT party". He owned a couple hundred black slaves, and was President when the "Trail of Tears" slaughter took place. Yep, another great democrat!

  27. Wow…
    Another hatchet job rant on history.
    One more like this, & I'll have to stop watching this channel.
    You hate Jackson….
    Got it!

  28. Not even to mention that in his most famous battle, The battle of New Orleans, He hung deserters and shit and was brutal in general.
