I noticed a gaffe in the final episode of West Wing. The writing is the finest-kind and they usually have their history straight. But, I heard President Bartlett blame the January Inauguration on the likes of Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin; our Founding Fathers. And that just isn’t right. Back in the early days of our Republic, the Presidential Inauguration was set for the March 4th following the election (Washington was inaugurated April 30th, 1789) . It wasn’t until 1933 that the Inauguration moved to January, and that took a constitutional amendment.
Doesn’t anybody fact-check these people?
