My Fellow Americans

Character mistake: When discussing the potential fallout of ousting the new president, Douglas says that because there's no vice president that according to the 25th Amendment the Speaker of the House is next in line. Not true. The Amendment itself is silent on the order of succession after the Vice President. The Constitution leaves the order of succession after that up to Congress, and the Speaker of the House is listed according to the Succession Act of 1947, not the 25th Amendment.


Other mistake: When the Presidents are at Union Station, in the first shot of Union Station the sky is clear. In the shots with the Presidents the sky is overcast.
