Worst. Not worse. When a situation calls for an absolute--in that nothing can exceed an item in greatness, awfulness, height, depth, etc--we use the superlative form. So worst, because in the past two years nothing is lower. Worse is a comparative--when you are looking at two and only two things. Some might complain "grammar Nazi" and sometimes that's a legitimate complaint, but here are two things to consider: one of your readers is a grammar instructor; and the Cult of Dolt 45 is one of willful and willing stupidity. Thus, we must endeavor to be our best.

@Jacen: Thanks for the catch. To be honest, I think I actually pulled that headline from CNN so they need to hire you or something. Needless to say, I corrected. Like you said, we must endeavor to be our best (or close enough).
