Never President, he was decent enough not to spread this silly story. He served as "President pro tem of the Senate" under Polk and Taylor, including the time between Taylor becoming President on Sunday an his taking the oath of Monday. He knew that the constitution made Zachary Taylor President at noon, whether he took the oath or not.

In actuality Polk's term was not extended and he had left the White House. No one was president for 24 hours but Mr. Atchison was called on to sign some administrative paper-work which does in fact mean that he fulfilled the duties of President of the United States for one day.
