When do you think any reporter or news host will challenge what these fools say. All of the first 15 presidents did not own slaves.
Of the first five presidents, four owned slaves. All four of these owned slaves while they were president.
Of the next five presidents (#6-10), four owned slaves. Only two of them owned slaves while they were president.
Of the next five presidents (#11-15), two owned slaves. Both of these two owned slaves while they were president.

Lying is so common now that truth seems not to matter.
