As President of the United States, you are typically held to a higher standard. Presidents are surrounded by a team of PR professionals and writers that all but assure that a President won’t slip up and make a major faux pas. However, some Presidents just can’t help themselves and slip up, whether it is a funny, mistimed joke or a hateful tirade that the general public wasn’t meant to hear. And with Donald Trump set to become President of the United States, there are certainly many more memorable quotes to come!
1. ”There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”
Good ol’ President George W. Bush made tons of comments just like this, so it was hard to pick just one of his quotes. But here is a great example of many of his quotes, where he rambles on and mixes up his entire story without making a real point. While he was viewed by many as being accessible and a down-to-earth President, this also made him a prime target for those who opposed his views and policies.
2. ‘I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.”
President Barrack Obama has not made a lot of quips like his predecessor did, but he did make some slip ups, like the one above. Most of the hilarious quotes from the Obama presidency actually came from his Vice President, Joe Biden, but that is for another time.
