Trivia Question: Historians have found that Franklin Roosevelt had a phobia of what?

Speeches
Number 13
Fear itself

 

The answer is: Number 13

Answer: In one of the most memorable moments of his political career, Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his first inaugural address “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. However, the man who led America through the Great Depression and World War II, had an irrational fear of the number 13. Roosevelt suffered triskaidekaphobia, which is an intense fear of the number thirteen.
