Presidential scandals and embarrassments are nothing new. It seems there”s at least one per president. These revelations tend to involve affairs, shady dealings, and military failures. There are the big ones everyone knows about, still fresh in the public mind. Then there are these. Some of them are in the vein of the types of events that plague politicians today, while some are a little, well, less expected.
George W. Bush”s wife was involved in a fatal car accident.
Ronald Reagan”s daughter posed in Playboy
Thomas Jefferson was all-around weird.
Nixon spied on his brother
Gerald Ford was a model.
Benjamin Harrison was afraid of electricity.
John Quincy Adams thought the world was hollow.
Andrew Jackson was almost a bigamist.
James Buchanan lived with a man.
Lyndon B. Johnson and his apt name.
Grover Cleveland might have been a rapist.
George Washington was really bad at war.
Warren G. Harding may have been poisoned by his jealous wife.
Calvin Coolidge liked to eat breakfast in bed while having his head rubbed with petroleum jelly.
Whatever your political slant, let”s take a moment to remember that no matter who”s in office, they”re probably doing something weird and trying to cover it up. That said, have a happy Presidents” Day!
