If you think 2016 was the only year a political party has nominated a seemingly inexperienced, wealthy candidate with somewhat iffy ties to the party he was running under, you’d be wrong. Add to that a man who liked to say it like it is, and the fact that the candidate was also considered a major celebrity at the time, and you have Donald Trump, right?
You’d be wrong though. Those Trump-esque qualities also perfectly describe our president of the week: Zachary Taylor. The year was 1849. And he was all of the above and then some.
