“Hangover? I hardly even KNOW her! Ha ha ha, oh, I’m an awful president.”
The founding entry of our new segment entitled “America’s Drunkest Presidents” was about George Washington, our founding father. We basically took one of our greatest presidents in history, and talked about how was also one of the greatest drinking president in history, because we are legally obligated to talk up George Washington and ignore some of that not-so-cool–oh-shit-don’t-click-these-links stuff. That said, he was an impressive drinker, which we’re super thankful for since the idea of a teetotaler as our badass founding General is too much for us to take. However, even though it worked out that way the first time, this segment is not called “America’s Best Drunk Presidents.” It is just “America’s Drunkest Presidents.”
We want to make that clarification before we go ahead and tell you about arguably the best drinking president we’ve ever had. But as good as he was at drinking (and, you’ll see, he was super good at it) he was pretty much the polar opposite at presidenting (just, so bad, you guys.)
So let’s talk about James Buchanan, the very drunk, but no good, 17th president of the United States.
