A friend of mine told me about this pretty unbelievable phone call a few years ago. LBJ frequently forgot to have the recording system hooked up to his phone and in the Oval Office switched off.
So, in addition to political calls with Senators, Congressmen, Governors and other world leaders, we also got gems such as this one, where LBJ calls to order some pants from a tailor.
Now, just one of the following would be pretty priceless in a Presidential Phone Call, but this one has it all:
- Use of the term "bunghole" and "nuts"
- A belch
- Description of lime green pants
- Comical Texas accent
