First POTUS in history to never be sworn in on a Bible —fact.

-------------

Hardly. He was sworn in on the Lincoln Bible.

Well, yes and no. It depends on how technical you want to get. The first swearing in was flubbed, so they did a second one. There was no Bible in the second one :

Perhaps, Chief Justice Roberts didn't think it necessary.

Wouldn't you agree, though, that the public swearing-in employed the Lincoln Bible?

There's enough damaging information on the man. We don't have to make stuff up. Or engage in wild speculation.

I never noticed that.

This is interesting.. from Wikipedia:

"Theodore Roosevelt did not use a Bible when taking the oath in 1901."

And here you have the real reason, an unprecedented and unreported “courtesy”(?) visit at SCOTUS, why the very intelligent and astute John Roberts, by his conciseness, seven days later was stammering through the Oath taking twice, when looking directly into the Devil’s evil eyes!!!
