President Ronald Wilson Reagan
Like or dislike the man, you have to admit that as the 40th President of the United States, the man was so smooth in how he delivered his message that he could make total nuclear war sound like everything will be just fine. Here is a video of some of his more funny and witty moments. He was known as the “Great Communicator” while he was in office.
March 30, 1981, President Reagan was the first President that I was old enough to remember, who had an assassination attempt against the President who was actually injured. Prior to that, President John F. Kennedy was the last President to have been wounded during an assassination attempt.
I remember coming home and learning about the assassination attempt and then watching it on the evening news. Back then we didn’t have CNN or Fox News, and there was no 24-hour news cycle, and you had to see it on the 6:00 news.
Doing research for this post, I’m amazed at how many assassination attempts against the sitting President of the United States, actually occur, some attempts are rather humorous as well – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_presidential_assassination_attempts_and_plots
Much of today’s youth don’t know that before he was a politician he was an actor. starring in over 50 movies and dozens of TV shows. He was also on the Board of Directors of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
