Increases in the presidential salary were made when a new President took office, so the president did not actually get a raise, he just got more than his predecessor.

I do not think any president actually got a raise while his was in office.

No, this is another of those internet myths, often spread by opponents of the president (but in this case, spread by a website that specializes in jokes and satire). The president's salary has been the same since it was raised during the first term of President Bush. No further raises or increases have taken place.
