Presidents Say Some Of The Darndest (And Dumbest) Things. Happy Presidents’ Day!

Sometimes, the president of the United States just screws up while talking. It can be in an offhand comment, an announcement to the public, or an address to Congress. Maybe it’s because they’re tired or not thinking clearly, or maybe they’re just not thinking at all. But luckily for us, these moments of inarticulateness are recorded to entertain us and remind us that even the president is just a regular person.

Fortunately, though, for most regular people, there’s seldom the chance to look foolish in front of millions.
