This year on President’s Day 2017, we have many things to take note of that have never before been associated with a U.S. President. A time of notable precedents, indeed.
Donald Trump, number 45 on the presidential hit parade, sets a series of first-evers, ie.:
- At 70, he is the oldest incoming President.
- A multi-billionaire, he is the wealthiest President ever. (Tax returns?)
- His wife, Melania, is the first FLOTUS to have posed nude. (Publically, that is.)
- He is the first President to have his own line of “super premium” vodka. (And he doesn’t drink!)
- The first president to have owned a professional football team. (Okay, USFL, but still…)
- He owns the tallest residential building in the world. (Trump Tower @ 90 stories)
- He was the producer and star of a TV reality show – The Apprentice (earning $375,000 per episode!)
- No president has ever been threatened with impeachment before being sworn in. (And continues to be.)
- No sitting President has been married three times.
- He has his own luxury jumbo jet, helicopter, and golf courses.
There is little doubt that we have yet to see the last of the firsts with this man, who is by far the most “precedential” Chief Executive to occupy the oval office to date.
Next year’s list should be longer.
