ALICE ROOSEVELT WAS HARDCORE. “She was known as a rule-breaker in an era when women were under great pressure to conform. The American public noticed many of her exploits. She smoked cigarettes in public, swore at officials, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach (Emily as in her spinster aunt and Spinach for its green color) in the White House, and was seen placing bets with a bookie. 


When it came time for  Teddy Roosevelt’s family to move out of the White House, the president’s daughter, Alice,  also buried a Voodoo doll of the new First Lady, Nellie Taft, in the front yard. Which caused her to be banned from the White House. Source
