First Lady Blues

While Sinatra was friends with future president John F. Kennedy, putting much effort into getting him elected, the future first lady wasn’t a Frank fan. Believing that the singer was a bad influence on Kennedy, she snubbed Sinatra whenever possible.

Sinatra thought she was simply prejudiced “against wops” and, according to former valet George Jacobs in his memoir Mr. S., whenever Jacqueline Kennedy appeared on television, Sinatra screamed angrily, “I’d like to fuck that bitch.” As an aside, Jacobs noted, “He’d have never said that about any women he liked.”
