JACQUELINE KENNEDY, HISTORIC CONVERSATIONS: SEVENTH CONVERSATION XXII

Knoxville, Tennessee (JFK+50) Today JFK+50 continues our report on the seventh conversation from “Jacqueline Kennedy, Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy,” published by Hyperion.



The seventh conversation was recorded on June 3, 1964.

Jacqueline Kennedy continues her discussion of some of the comedy skits done on the First Family.

Mrs. Kennedy says:

“I went to the Women’s Press Club dinner….& a woman named Bonnie Angelo* came out on a tricycle as Caroline & sang some awful song.”

*Bonnie Angelo (1924-     ) covered Mrs. Kennedy for Time magazine.


Jacqueline Kennedy continues….

“The next year, I wouldn’t go & that Bonnie Angelo was president. (Press Secretary) Pierre (Salinger) really got upset by that.

I just felt so strongly about those children.  It was hard enough protecting them in the Kennedy family, where some of the cousins….were so conscious of the position, & would always wear Kennedy buttons & would play that record, ‘My Daddy Is President, What Does  Your Daddy Do?’**

**’My Daddy Is President’ was sung by 7 year old “Little Jo Ann” Morse in baby talk with a bossa nova beat.

I hid all those things from my children & always taught them that the White House was sort of temporary.”
