In case you missed it: Mimi Alford interview @ Rock Center (8 mins)

The same story sex sells.  I find the story plausible because jack needed to debase women because of maternal neglect.   This led to untreated mental illness like depression.  For what it’s worth the woman could have said hell no.   She didn’t why? I don’t buy abuse of power.  She will suffer for these sordid tales.

Jack and Jackie

 In case you missed the interview on Rock Center.

You can see the 68 YO woman talk about it at the link.  There is also a pic of her as an intern.  She went for a swim in the pool then for a sexual swim in Jackie’s bedroom! Wow.  I think JFK was suffering from depression because he raised himself.  His mother was neglectful and his father was pretty much absent but influential in his affairs.  Mimi is right to come clean after 40 years because secrets are deadly.  She speaks candidly.  And what else has written a book about the affair.  “Alford says that she lost her virginity to the president in the first lady’s bedroom. In her soon to be released memoir, Once Upon a Secret My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and its Aftermath…”

Mimi Alford is speaking publicly for the first time about the secret she’s held for half a century. Alford claims that she had an 18-month-long affair with President John F. Kennedy when she was a White House intern. 

“I think when you keep a secret and when you keep silent about something, you do it because you think it’s keeping you safe, but in fact, it’s deadly,” Alford told Meredith Vieira in an exclusive interview scheduled to air Wednesday on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams

In 1962, a 19-year-old Alford spent her summer in Washington, D.C., interning in the White House press office.  She had just finished her freshman year at Wheaton College in Massachusetts.  Four days into her internship, Alford claims that JFK aide, David Powers, invited her to go swimming in the White House pool. Alford was surprised when the 45-year-old president joined her and two others in the pool.  

Clandestine Patch

When one needs to kick an addiction to smoking one gets a nicotine patch. But what kind of patch does one wear to keep a secret? It seems a clandestine patch works well. Photo of young Mimi.

I could turn a phrase here and call it the clandestine snatch, but that’s not nice, funny, but not nice. However, that’s the basis of Mimi’s book about Jack. It was secret, she was young and he was president.

She won’t kiss and tell details but will fill in the gaps some journalists have been falling into and fumbling with as they uncover or rather pull back the covers on this clandestine affair. Shame on you Jack.

Historical, but not hysterical, a woman named Mimi had an affair as a young woman with JFK. What else is new? What’s new is that she is breaking her silence after 40 years because she wants to control the materials.

She was tall, thin and beautiful, Kennedy’s type. She won’t reveal anything I don’t already know about Kennedy, about JFK the president. He was a man who couldn’t resist.

We’ll see what comes of this book that is being co-written. Here’s a collection of JFK  photos as a young man.
