John F. Kennedy, notable for being the youngest person to ever be elected as the President of the United States in 1961. Throughout his presidency, he brought a ton of fresh, new energy to the White House. He instrumental in creating the Peace Corps and is credited with having helped prevent World War III by successfully de-escalating the Cuban Missile Crisis.
While John F. Kennedy is widely known for his many accomplishments. As well as his untimely death on November 22, 1963; the 35th president’s love life is also a topic much speculation and dissection. Although he meticulously crafted his public image as that of a devoted family man; John F. Kennedy was quite possibly the most prolific presidential philander in United States history.
Kennedy involved with many women; ranging from bombshell Hollywood types like Marilyn Monroe to White House interns with unsettling ties to the mafia. Although he famously married to the glamorous and beautiful brunette Jackie Kennedy, John had a strong preference for blondes.
Jackie wasn’t completely clueless about her husband’s infidelity. She knew all about his numerous liaisons. But she rationalized them by telling herself that John would always ultimately come back to her. It was fairly commonplace at the time for elite men to have affairs. So she probably just thought it was something that someone of her status had to put up with.
John Kennedy womanizing even organized. Notoriously he enlisted the services of one, Dave Powers; a special assistant whose duty it was to locate beautiful women that were willing to hook up with the President. John would even use the Secret Service to sneak women in and out of the White House.
If you find all of this as fascinating as we do; keep watching to learn about the countless women that the late John Kennedy had affair with. It would be practically impossible to address every last one of his flings. But we do know about quite a few of them.
For many years John Kennedy affair with Marilyn Monroe was a matter of pure speculation. But in recent times details have come to light that confirms that the two had an intimate relationship that went behind platonic pleasantries.
John F. Kennedy and Ms. Monroe met in February of 1962 in New York City. Shortly after they met, the two started having a passionate affair. The President and his Hollywood mistress did their best to keep their affair as private as possible. They would meet up mainly at their mutual friend, Bing Crosby’s house in Palm Springs so that the media wouldn’t catch wind of what was going on.
In time, however, Monroe apparently started developing aspirations of one day becoming the First Lady. Evidently, she even wrote Jackie detailing her intentions.
It’s further alleged that John F. Kennedy brother Robert Kennedy had an even longer affair with Monroe. Some even speculate that Bobby arranged for Monroe to be murdered and her death covered up to look like a suicide.
Before becoming the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy was a friend of the notorious crew of crooners and entertainers known as the Rat Pack. He was especially close with Rat Packers Sammy Davis Jr and Frank Sinatra. Through them, he allegedly maintained an open and politically useful line of communication with Mafia mobsters.
At a party at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas in 1960, Sinatra introduced Kennedy to Judith Campbell – a former lover of a Chicago mob boss named Sam Giancana. John Kennedy and Judith then started having an affair that would continue throughout John Kennedy’s Presidency. Once in office, Judith would regularly visit the White House, and her affair with the President reportedly spanned several years.
Shockingly, Exner would later make the startling claim that she was responsible for serving as courier to transport packages for the President to and from Giancana. It should noted, however, that these claims never confirmed.
Eexner would eventually called into detail her affair with JFK to a Senate committee. As such, she was one of the first people to publicly expose the late-President’s darker side.
Kennedy’s administration is known collaborated with mobsters regularly during what was called Operation Mongoose – a covert intelligence program meant to destabilize Fidel Castro’s communist regime in Cuba.
This clandestine collaboration perhaps anchored by the President John Kennedy affair with Judith Exner.
Arvad was one of JFK’s long-term girlfriends while he was in the Navy. It’s rumored that she may have a spy for the Soviets.
Their eventual break-up spurred on by Kennedy’s father who concerned about what sort of effects his son’s relationship with Arvad would have on his future political career.
