Read the title…can you think of what the post is about?
Before some well meaning thumb sucker gets on his low horse and tries to rip me for writing about the impeachment of Trump from the presidency……
This has nothing to do with the idiot in White House on this day….
It is about the president we knew as Andrew Johnson….the person that became president after the death of Lincoln……
The president of the United States was both a racist and a very difficult man to get along with.
He routinely called blacks inferior. He bluntly stated that no matter how much progress they made, they must remain so. He openly called critics disloyal, even treasonous. He liberally threw insults like candy during public speeches. He rudely ignored answers he didn’t like. He regularly put other people into positions they didn’t want to be in, then blamed them when things went sour. His own bodyguard later called him “destined to conflict,” a man who “found it impossible to conciliate or temporize.”
But the nation’s politicians simply had to interact with Andrew Johnson, for he had become the legitimate, constitutionally ordained chief executive upon Abraham Lincoln’s death by assassination.
Speaking of Abe Lincoln…..what do you know about our past president? He suffered from depression……he was tall…..he was shot in the head…..president during the War Between The States…….anything else?
