Nero Fiddled, Kennedy Partied
Presidential mistress (while a teenager) Mimi Alford claims that the president who remains the most popular in modern U.S. history offered her amyl nitrate poppers during a nude swimming party at the Palm Springs estate of Bing Crosby, the most popular entertainer of America's Norman Rockwell era. The party took place around "White" Christmas of 1962.
"[Kennedy's top aide] Dave Powers [was] bang**g a girl on the edge of the pool," recalled Secret Service agent Newman. "The President was sitting across the pool having a drink and talking to some broads. Everybody was buck**s naked."
But no word from the Secret Service if Bingo's "Silent Night, Holy Night" played in the background during this Yuletide ceremony.
"I am here today not to be honored -- but to pay honor," intoned the U.S. president at the Orange Bowl two weeks later. "I know of no men in modern history who showed more courage under more difficult conditions than those before me today. I promise to deliver this Brigade banner to you in a free Havana!" he beamed at the Bay of Pigs freedom-fighters and their loved ones.
The Orange Bowl erupted: "Cuba libre!" yelled the delirious crowd while hugging and cheering and sobbing. "Cuba libre!" yelled men (and boys) who'd snickered in the face of KGB torturers weeks earlier, but now wept openly. The hour of liberation seemed nigh, and with the full backing of "The Leader of the Free World."
But two months earlier, this same Leader of the Free World had made a different pledge.
