Since its completion over 200 years ago, the White House has stood firm at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. In that time, though, the historic building has not only seen dozens of presidents come and go, but it has also been expanded multiple times – and even partially burned down at one point. And over the decades, America’s most famous mansion has apparently been the setting for multitudes of fascinating and shocking stories – tales involving everything from ghostly apparitions to some decidedly brazen presidential nudity.

Yet, in the end, Trump’s soiree wasn’t quite as much of a complete debacle as his predecessor’s.
