John Adams would have been fun on social media

If you want to know what our founding fathers would have been like on social media, read John Adams’ diary.

Here we have Mr. A., back when he was a 21-year-old school teacher in 1756. He wouldn’t have dreamt of being the first Vice President or second president of the United States considering that entity wasn’t even a twinkle in his eye.

Notice that on March 12, he’s basically humble bragging that he’s giving up chewing. This isn’t much different from you or eye bragging about a lifestyle improvement on Facebook.

Then, two days later, he’s talking about chilling with a friend and gabbing about a national celebrity. Now, the Ben Franklin he’s speaking of was a bit more impressive than Kimye.

It’s also interesting to think that two decades later, he and Mr. Franklin would team up in Philly to push for independence.


Screw Thomas Jefferson! Seriously. He was no John Jay or James Madison.
