Bill Clinton x Frank Ocean
Happy Father’s Day!
On this day in 1966, Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first Presidential Father’s Day Proclamation. It set aside the third Sunday in June in celebration of fathers. Six years later, it became a permanent holiday by order of President Richard Nixon. Each year since then, the Presidents have issued yearly Father’s Day proclamations.
Presidents have enjoyed the day as fathers themselves, and over the years many children have enlivened the White House. Some presidents enter office as grandfathers, such as Franklin D. Roosevelt who had 13 grandchildren. Others, like current President Obama, are fathers to school age children.
In celebration of fathers everywhere, here’s a gallery from the White House blog of Presidents with the people who know them simply as “Dad” and “Granddad.”
Bill Clinton disgusts me tbh
Not only is he a rapist but when Bush moved into the White House, Clinton and his staff caused $15,000 worth of damage TO THE WHITE HOUSE on their way out and Bush was gracious enough to simply say (and I quote) “There might have been a prank or two. Maybe somebody put a cartoon on the wall, but that’s okay.”
"Not only is he a rapist"
I shot the prez.
President Bill Clinton is seen leaving the Temple School of Performing Arts after speaking at the memorial service of Lewis Katz, businessman and owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer, who died tragically in a plane crash the weekend prior.
Maybe you’ve just started to pursue a higher education. Maybe you’ve spent your adult life paying off debt from school. Either way, you’ve probably got questions about why college costs so much, what can be done about it, and if it’s even worth doing in the first place.
You should ask those questions to the President of the United States.
On Tuesday, June 10, our Founder/CEO, David, will head down to Washington to host a live conversation about education with President Obama. David will ask your questions. The President will answer them, out of his mouth, in front of the world.
(The White House will also be picking out a few question-askers to join us in person. If having the President’s ear isn’t enough, maybe standing on his carpet is.)
“I know the future of this country will be in good hands because of a place called Gallaudet. For 125 years, young people have believed in themselves, their families, their country, and their future with the courage to dream and the willingness to work to realize those dreams. You have inspired your President today, and a generation.”
