Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy were all assassinated in the course of our history. But this doesn’t mean that the other 42 presidents weren’t at risk of assassination too, throughout their presidencies.
These would-be assassins were luckily discovered by the police officers because of misfiring guns, bystanders, and overall bad luck. We are going to relate the stories of ten close-call assassination attempts.
You’ll see how a 50-page speech saved the life of Theodore Roosevelt, and how an airplane wheel block spared Nixon, but also how Gerald Ford was almost a victim of a member of the Charles Manson family.
