White House Mistresses Who ‘Served’ Their County
Nobody’s perfect. And occasionally the more perfect someone seems on the outside the more flawed they are on the inside. And attaining great power and success is often driven by a massive ego, which can have disastrous effects if left to run wild, especially when sex is involved. Let’s look at some of the greatest flaws of the world’s most powerful men: Presidents of the United States and the mistresses who got them in trouble.
1. JFK & Marilyn Monroe
He was the most handsome and physically striking president to date. She was an international sex symbol and the object of practically every male fantasy. Yet he (John F. Kennedy) happened to be married, and she (Marilyn Monroe) seemed just fine with that.
As the story goes, Kennedy first made a move on Marilyn only days after she sung him a scandalous and hyper-sexualized rendition of “Happy Birthday” at his forty-fifth birthday party in 1962. And although the general public knew practically nothing of the affair while it was taking place, Kennedy’s wife, Jackie, was indeed aware, due to Marilyn’s lack of discretion and Kennedy’s long history of obsessive womanizing.
