Fact of the Day: NYC Presidents

While many presidents have had history in New York City, Theodore Roosevelt and Donald Trump were the only ones born in the city.

Interesting that they both were born there..

I guess it would be more of a coincidence if more presidents were born there, right? The US is huge, after all!

I've read quite a few books on Teddy Roosevelt.
A wise man but I sure wouldn't say that about our current President.
Happy fourth and coffee is on

Yes and one really had a military background, the other just salutes at random and doesn't even know the etiquette of when and when not to salute.
Turnip Top certainly made a bigger idiot of himself in Singapore when he saluted (???) the Northern Korean Military C-in-C or the C of S.
The General looked totally bemused.
Then again Turnip Top was a draft dodger!!!!
