“George Washington is the only president to have been drawn and quartered”

U.S. President George Washington (1732-1799) is on the Washington quarter. He was not “quartered” (as in “hanged, drawn and quartered”—cut into four pieces), but there are jokes.

“I wonder how George Washington would feel, if he knew he’d been drawn and quartered...” was posted on Twitter by Dawna on June 6, 2021. “George Washington was the only president to have been drawn and quartered” was posted on Twitter by Premium Bland on March 9, 2015. “George Washington is the only president to have been drawn and quartered” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on October 15, 2017.

“Which American president is least guilty?"/"Lincoln. He is in a cent” is another popular joke about a president on a coin.


Wikipedia: Washington quarter
The Washington quarter is the present quarter dollar or 25-cent piece issued by the United States Mint. The coin was first struck in 1932; the original version was designed by sculptor John Flanagan.

I feel bad for George Washington. I’ve read that being drawn & quartered is horrific.

It’s a shame how we treat our Founders. After all Washington did for us, we had him drawn and quartered. #15Minutes

If George Washington was such a popular president, on our money why do we have him drawn and quartered?
