3. Joe Biden: “When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said: ‘Look, here’s what happened.’”
Of Course Roosevelt wasn’t president in 1929 when the stock market crashed, and while FDR did give frequent radio addresses during his presidency, he did not address people on television, as very few Americans owned such technology at the time. Biden made the gaffe in a 2008 interview with Katie Couric for CBS.
