Rumored Closeted Republican Politician of The Week: Richard Nixon!

News

Dead old racist warmongering anti-Semite misogynist criminal Richard Nixon might also have been a tender lover in the handful of moments in his life when he wasn't up to something terrifying, sayeth a new book! Not to his wife, of course; she, like everyone else in America, was often brutalized by Tricky Dick. No, it seems Nixon may have been a giant self-loathing closet 'mo who found secret happiness in a spirit-marriage to a smarmy Mafia goon he picked up in Florida. According to this book from veteran journalist Don Fulsom, Nixon even gave his special friend his own room at the White House, took him on adorable gay vacations to the Keys and allegedly held hands with him under the dinner table, AW. What else did they do, sing show tunes together?


AS A MATTER OF FACT, via Queerty.com:

Due out next month, Fulsom’s racy bio, Nixon’s Darkest Secrets, asserts that Nixon carried on a decades-long affair with Mafia-connected Floridian Charles “Bebe” Rebozo, unquestionably one of the 37th U.S. President’s closest confidants. Rebozo often vacationed with Prez Dick in Key Biscayne, both with Nixon’s wife Pat along and not. During the men-only visits, the twosome reportedly frolicked together in and out of the water, and gushed over their shared passion for Broadway musicals.

We can't really process that last sentence! Next bizarre detail, about Richard Nixon practicing his make-out skills on his military aides, from the Daily Mail:

Fulsom claims one of Nixon's former military aides had a secret job 'to teach the President how to kiss his wife' so they would look like a convincing couple.

How much of this can we believe? Nixon died in 1994 and his reputation is pretty much irredeemable. As with [Clint] Eastwood's [J. Edgar] Hoover film, there is no definitive proof, but plenty of 'supporting evidence'.

Fulsom quotes a former Time magazine reporter who, at a Washington dinner, bent down to pick up a fork and saw the two holding hands under the table. It was, the reporter judged, sufficiently intimate to suggest 'repressed homosexuality'.

Ha ha, "repressed" seems to imply some kind of ambiguity or something. A Republican politician holding hands with another dude under the table at dinner in the 1970s is like the modern-day equivalent of Larry Craig waving his hands around under an airport bathroom stall -- pretty clear cut!

After watching President Arty McDeals twist in the wind for a month, IRL politician Mitch McConnell finally decided to throw the mook a lifeline. Despite constant screaming about women with duct tape over their mouths, Trump is getting blamed for the shutdown and even his own supporters are starting to turn on him. So Ol' Yertle summoned Mike Pence and Jared Kushner to his chambers for some #RealTalk.

"Tell Donald that he has to offer something so it looks like the Democrats are the ones who won't compromise." He said. (Probably.)

"That's great," squeaked young Jared (allegedly), "Democrats are desperate. We've got them right where we want them." McConnell blinked hard.

"No, Jared," he probably said. "They're not going to take the deal. We'd have more luck getting Mexico to pay for it. The point is to offer something silly so they turn us down, and then we try to convince the public that the shutdown is Democrats' fault."

"I don't get it," said Jared (allegedly), as Mother's boy Pence furrowed his brow and sighed through his nose. (Not allegedly, it's his signature move.)

"I know," Mitch might have said. "Believe me, I know."

Which is how President Teleprompter wound up giving a MAJOR ADDRESS yesterday offering to hold off on deporting some of the Dream Act kids for a hot second if Democrats will just give him $5.7 billion for WALL and let him expel future child arrivals without a hearing. Trump himself rescinded protections for up to a million immigrants brought here as kids as soon as he took office, but he'll let some of those hostages go if Democrats will just give him cash for that WALL that Mexico is "indirectly" paying for. Heck, he'll even let 300,000 people who fled war and natural disasters and put down roots here over decades to stay a little longer, if that's what it takes. He plans to deport them all in three years anyway, or else use them for another round of hostage negotiations. (If we re-elect That Orange Idiot, spit on the ground/sign of the horns/God forbid.)
