John Tyler: Probably A President, Sure

John Tyler was the first man to succeed a president who had died in office. At his inauguration, Tyler poured a forty on the ground and dedicated his presidency to “my dead homiez.” He later claimed he’d meet his predecessor “at da crossroads.” In his inauguration speech, Tyler encouraged all Americans to put their hands up in the air, and to wave them in a manner that conveyed a general lack of concern.

Now it’s time to drop some science with regard to John Tyler:

  • Tyler wanted to send troops to Mexico because, “Yo, them suckas be illin’.” Historians still don’t know what this means.
  • Tyler once described the state of the union as “supa-dupa fly.”
  • John Tyler’s most famous quite: “Don’t push me, I’m close to the edge; I’m about to annex Texas.”
