November 17, 1973

On November 17, 1973, US President Richard Nixon met with Associated Press managing editors in Orlando, Florida and told them “the American people have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.” Years later in 2019, US President Donald Trump tweeted, “I did nothing wrong. Great businessmen do that all the time. Covfefe. Witch hunt. Biggest witch hunt ever. Did you know Obama and Hillary are space aliens? My hands are huge. Greatest Economy ever. I’m the President. I can just pardon myself.”

  1. The Ghost of Richard Nixon says:

    How DARE you, sir!

    I may (or may not) have been involved in some questionable activities when I was President, but at least I could string more than 5 words together to form a coherent sentence — and I never committed treason, by working in the interest of a foreign government to the detriment of the USA.

    You should keep such things in mind, before making idle (and unfair) comparisons.

    Yours Truly,
    Richard M. Nixon (the Ghost of)
