presidential facts

Since the country is at odds about the latest (as in last night) election I thought I would lighten the mood with some fun Presidential Facts:

>In 1954, Ronald Reagan's acting career was going so badly that he took a gig as a Las Vegas stand-up comic for a few weeks.

>John Quincey Adams was known for his early morning dips in D.C.'s main waterway, always in the nude.

> Grover Cleveland was almost literally a cradle robber. He married the daughter of his law partner, at whose birth he was present. When his partner died, Cleveland became the girl's legal guardian. Several years later, they got married at the White House, and had a child, Ruth (the namesake of the candy bar Baby Ruth).

> Calvin Coolidge was strange guy. Not only did he sleep quite a lot - over 10 hours a day - but had a morning ritual where he enjoyed having Vaseline rubbed on his head while he ate breakfast in bed. He also had a mechanical horse installed in the White House so he could practice his horseback riding skills.

>The 18th President Of The United States was given a $20 speeding ticket for riding his horse too fast down a Washington street. 

>When Lewis and Clark were exploring the West, two young bear cubs were sent East to President Jefferson. He kept the bears in a cage on the White House lawn and occasionally went on walks with them. Other strange presidential pets include: Alligator (John Quincy Adams), Elephant (James Buchanan), and Zebra (Teddy Roosevelt).

I wonder what animal Trump will plant in front of the White House?
