After 50 years, finally the tapes that Jackie recorded 4 months after the president died are finally released. She talked about living in the white house, people in politics, marriage, cuban missile crisis, and many other things.  It was recorded at her home and you can hear John in the background.  From What I believe, after she recorded these tapes, which are over 8.5 hours long, she never granted another interview again.  This ABC special is two hours long just touching base on the 8.5 hours.  You can buy the book and all of the hours are incuded with the book. 

Some of the things she says are so very surprising but remember these statements are a snapshot in time and her thoughs changed on certain things.   For example, she stated that Martin Luther King was "fake" and she said her marriage was "Asiatic" in which she means she had no political opinions of her own and a woman is only there to just exist to make her man feel like the man in the marriage.  She stated "she had no opinions of her own,  her :husbands opinions were her own when it came to politics."

Please watch and enjoy this two hour special ABC just put together this month.  I can't wait to buy the book to get my hands on the entire 8.5 hours of tapes. 

Happy Sunday!!! :)
