Goofs
At the Siblings Anonymous meeting, Roger Clinton explains that he got upset watching footage of his famous brother Bill on the History Channel making his 1993 State of the Union Address to Congress. There was no State of the Union address in 1993 as Bill Clinton had just become President and the traditional speech never takes place during an inauguration year.
