SARASOTA, Fl. (WWSB)- President Trump made headlines this week when he referred to some African nations, and Haiti as "s**tholes.

But Mr. Trump is hardly alone when it comes to salty language.   In 2012 Rolling Stone magazine printed a few choice words from former Chief Executives and their Vice Presidents.  Here is a sampling.

Abraham Lincoln: ""There is nothing to make an Englishman s**t quicker than the sight of General George Washington."

Barack Obama: called Mitt Romney a "bulls**tter."

Joe Biden: "This is a big f**king deal."

Dick Cheney: Told Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to ‘go f**k [himself]"

George W. Bush: "Commented on the presence of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer. Believing he had an audience of one, Bush called Clymer a ‘major-league a***ole.’”

Richard Nixon: "The Watergate tapes put the phrase ‘expletive deleted’ on the map.”

Lyndon Johnson: "I do know the difference between chicken s**t and chicken salad,"

John Kennedy: "This is obviously a f**k-up."

Harry Truman: "In Truman's eyes, General Douglas MacArthur was a "dumb son of a bitch," and Nixon was ‘a shifty-eyed g**damned liar.’”
