John Tyler’s Grandson
This link is an interview with the 10th president of the United States’ grandson. I was reading Mental Floss the other day and found out that two of John Tyler’s grandsons are still alive. This confused me, considering John Tyler was born in 1790. I did some more Googling today and found this interview.
In the interview, Harrison Tyler talks about about his family, some misconceptions about his grandfather’s presidency, and his feelings about politics today. I found his answers almost unintentionally funny. He’s around the same age as my grandma, so I kind of chalked it up to the same kind of bluntness she has when answering my questions. On an pretty funny note, in a separate interview (found here), the interviewer claims that Mr. Tyler called presidential candidate Newt Gringich a “big jerk.”
