JFK's "relationship" with Marilyn

A new book about JFK's long-suspected affair with Marilyn Monroe claims the actress called Jackie Kennedy to confess. Did Marilyn actually make the call? Brooke talks with presidential historian Doug Wead about the possibility.

    Why is this on a news site? A book comes out about a politician's affair 50 years ago. This should not be considered news.

    It's because any item that mentions JFK and Marilyn Monroe will get more traction/exposure than the norm.

    News continues to be influenced by the tabloids. In the 1960's reporters knew about such things but did not report them. that era is gone

    I saw a show on PBS where the Kennedy's were blamed, for her death. They said she was having an affair with JFK, and Robert, and they had to shut her up, when she threatened to go public.

    It's to divert your attention from the fact he slept and kept an East German spy too. Liberals try to hide that one under the couch. LOL.

    Interesting how so many salacious details about JFK keep the media busy these days especially since most of the players are now dead. What ever happened to RIP?

    The sad thing about Marilyn's death is the truth is still suspended and blocked. The first grand jury said she was murdered and decided to go to trial. The D.A. at the time fired the jury foreman and appointed a new one who immediately shut down the case. In the eighty's another grand jury thought to open the case and the D.A. said no. In the after life it will be interesting to see who answers for this.

    Nothing new here... Everyone and their dog know that JFK was a horn dog; most if not all the Kennedy men were; his father's long time mistress was the actress Gloria Swanson for example.... I believe he once said to a British Ambassador that he would get nasty headaches if he didn't have a woman regularly

    But honestly its just sex. The only people it should matter to are the women they were married to; its none of anyone else's business what anyone does sexually in their private life (provided its not with sheep or children)

    What is the deal with everyone. Let me start off by saying I'm sorry about the way this man Died and i know he was a great leader, But he was a
    horrible husband and that makes him a bad dad and that makes him a bad person. That's right i said it!

    FK's long-suspected affair with Marilyn Monroe claims the actress called Jackie Kennedy to confess. I read alot and this is not the only rumored
    relationship that he had while married.

    If Marilyn did call and confess good for her! Even thou she was no better.
