Episode 75 – Mt. Rushless (aka Crummy Presidents)

You might have recently heard a certain current President joking that he belongs on Mt. Rushmore. As experts on the matter, we can say this: we certainly don’t want him joining Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and…let me check, it’s Teddy and not FDR, right…yes, Teddy Roosevelt on this hallowed monument.

However, we have another place he can go. (Well, several, but most of them aren’t fit for a family podcast.)

In honor of our 75th episode, we build our Mt. Rushless – a symbol of the crummiest Presidents this country has ever seen. WARNING: lots of pre-and post-Civil War leaders ahead!
