Andrew Jackson’s parrot

The controversy over Trump’s “shithole” comments has revived interest in cursing by prior presidents.

My favorite story concerns Andrew Jackson’s parrot.  It attended his funeral but was removed because it was cursing.  You can find lots of articles online with the basic story but none that show what the parrot said.  I guess we’ll never know.
