Everyone likes a holiday. It seem though that the only people that really like Presidents Day are government employees and students that get it off and car dealerships that need an excuse for a sale.

Believe it or not, "I will build a wall" and "I am really rich" aren't very presidential. So while your stuck at work, here are 15 quotes from Washington and Lincoln that will add a little extra to your day and maybe even show how ridiculous the current dialogue has become.
