  1. Apparently Teddy is the Rodney Dangerfield of US Presidents. Sorry about that mixup, someone skipped history class.

    • Yeah as soon as I saw it I went straight to the comments to see if any one else saw it😅 but good for y’all for catching it love yalls videos by the way!

    • I am glad that you eventually noticed that you used pictures of FDR, when you should have used pictures of President Teddy Roosevelt. BTW, your faux pas is forgiven, because your videos are so entertaining. 😉

  2. Didn’t know FDR was an avid bear hunter! What a man!!! Despite Polio, he saunters into the wilderness to hunt bear! Wow! I guess it was Theodore “Teddy” that lengthened his term in office and henceforth prolonged the Great Depression with his horrid social policies. Interesting.
