Digging deeply into the political archives, we uncovered highlights of a 1982 CNN “Crossfire” interview with former President Richard Nixon, including uncensored comments during a commercial break. The interview was conducted by Pat Buchanan, who later became a special consultant to Presidents Nixon, Ford and Reagan. He unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for the presidency in 1992 and 1996.
In his characteristic no-nonsense manner, Nixon lauds the Kennedy brothers, calling Ted the best politician of the three and, in an unsuspecting moment during a commercial break, he takes a shot at President Johnson with some choice words. Tune in to this classic interview with our 37th President, courtesy of CNN.ARVE Error: need id and provider
