This question ( don’t you just hate coin flip trivia questions) send some of you to the Google machine… (ahem):
Who died first? Thomas Jefferson?
Or John Adams?
Here’s the kicker – you trivia nerds probably already know that they both died on the same day (July 4, 1826). They were political rivals throughout their adult lives, yet there was still some underlying respect (unlike what you see in most social media circles these days, ugh)!
What are you waiting for? Go look up the answer now! 😂
Are you still here? Now look up who was born first – Gerald Ford – or Richard Nixon?
Also, who is oldest, youngest and in the middle of this trio in terms of birth order? Bill Clinton, George Dubya, and The Donald?

The general understanding is that Jefferson died earlier in the day. Another fun fact is that Donald Trump, George W Bush & Bill Clinton were all born in 1946, with Trump being the oldest.
Yup! I’ve managed to keep that latter factoid straight in my head in case the question comes up in a trivia game.
