This is also another rare photo of John Quincy Adams. It was taken back in 1843, which was several years after his term. However, at this rate, you’d have to wonder how many photos there are of him in existence. Pretty rare indeed, but are they rare enough to not have any more floating around, especially in this day and age of social media and the Internet?
Here’s a photo that certainly made headlines all around the world back in 1945. Lauren Bacall, the legendary actress, is seen sitting atop a piano with vice president Harry Truman playing it. While it may have seemed scandalous at the time, this did nothing to ruin their careers. Bacall made such a huge leap to superstardom in Hollywood, and Truman would go on to win the US presidency in just a few weeks.
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.
President Barack Obama has always been recognized as a pop culture-attuned individual. You can even see him making guest appearances in popular talk shows hosted by Jimmy Fallon. In this photo, he is seen engaging in some chit chat with former Golden Girl, Betty White. She just came for a visit, actually.
