Presidents Day Shout-out to Franklin Pierce

No Presidents Day is complete without a nod to President Pierce.

However, in all seriousness, based on the account of Pierce’s views and actions as president on Wikipedia (most notably his willingness to facilitate his party’s (Democrat) objective of expanding slavery into the Kansas and Nebraska territories and his strict enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act), Pierce was a pretty lousy president.

Frankly, Franklin, I don’t know how you got your face on a gold coin!
