Many media outlets and news organizations weren’t too happy over the restriction of photojournalists during a number of presidential events held at the White House back in 2013. However, such a move was made to control how the President’s image would be reflected in the public. After all, he is the leader of the United States of America, and should set a proper example to everyone. However, you’d have to think about how people were back in the day, when nothing was completely filtered from public view. What would you have to say about the following photos of former Presidents then?
Every year prior to Thanksgiving, the US President pardons a turkey in a rather strange tradition. However, it has continued on since the 1940s. However, it also does make for some pretty awkward situations. Such is the case here with George W. Bush, who seems to be getting gobbled down “there” by this turkey.
William Howard Taft would be the kind of president people wouldn’t really vote for in this day and age. Not only was he short, but also pretty heavy. As a matter of fact, he weighed about 340 pounds. As seen in this photo during his governor-general days in the Philippines, even the water buffalo is having a hard time carrying him.
