WATCH: Teddy Roosevelt vs. Christmas Trees in the ‘Drunk History’ Holiday Special
Comedy Central’s Drunk History gets in the spirit of the season with Tuesday’s episode, the Drunk History Christmas Special.
And maybe the impending holiday is making the spirits flow even more so than usual for the show’s hosts, because in this clip, “A Very Teddy Roosevelt Christmas,” Rich Fulcher regales us with a sloshed version of how President Roosevelt (“President of the United Status,” as a slurring Fulcher refers to him) banned Christmas trees from the White House back in the day, and how his children got him to change his mind.
The episode features Rob Corddry, Colin Hanks, Ken Marino and Chris Witaske, and like everything else Drunk History related, there are bits of truth to be found in the drunken ramblings (not to mention hilarious things to be found as well, including an interesting substitution for the word “stick” in TR’s famous “Speak softly” quote).
