Vivek Ramaswamy said that Thomas Jefferson invented the swivel chair. Did he?
The candidates were asked at Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate which presidents they would take the most inspiration from. Ramaswamy named Jefferson, saying among other things that the third president had invented the swivel chair.
“He was 33 years old when he wrote the Declaration of Independence. You are all sitting on the swivel chair today. He invented that swivel chair while he was at it, while writing that Declaration of Independence,” Ramaswamy said.
