Question of the Day

Jan 18, 2017

Last week, we asked: On Inauguration Day 2009, Sasha and Malia Obama slid down which banister in the White House? Hint: It was so precious that Barbara and Jenna Bush wrote about it recently.

Answer: The Solarium.

Congrats to CenterRingMedia's Dan Rosenbaum for being the first to answer correctly! Honorable mention goes to former IT journalist for the Guardian, Jack Schofield, who added the following charming detail: "they 'slid down the banister of the solarium, just as we had done as 8-year-olds.'"

Today's question of the day is... Unless you've been living in a cave (in which case, I truly envy you), you know it's inauguration week. Can you name the two U.S. presidents who respectively had the shortest and longest inauguration speeches?

As always, click here to tweet your answer to @MuckRack. We’ll announce the winner tomorrow!
