Everybody knew it.

FDR understood that being crippled was one thing.

But that LOOKING crippled was entirely another.

Why does it matter that a President kept his personal, private medical concerns a private matter? Are you also concerned with whether George W. Bush had anal sex with his wife? It's none of your damned business. FDR was sick. So what? Appraise the man for his performance, not his health.

It was an open secret...

... it was reported in newspapers at the time...

... but nobody made a big deal of it.

The pen of the scholar is mightier than the blood of the martyr - Muslim proverb
That must have been Herman Cain's motto during the civil rights movement.
