Lyndon Johnson Held Meetings On The Toilet

“We’re in favor of a lot of things and we’re against mighty few.” —Lyndon B. Johnson

In A Nutshell

Lyndon B. Johnson, our 36th president, was well known for getting things done and doing them fast. Within a day of becoming President, he ordered that the entire phone system in the White House be expanded so that calls could be made from absolutely anywhere . . . including the bathroom. But those weren’t the only conversations that were had on the crapper. He was notorious for having reporters and aides follow him into the bathroom where he would then conduct two kinds of business at once.

The Whole Bushel

President Johnson did not mess around. He was constantly on the telephone, making dozens of calls every day, and was known for using more than one phone at a time. Apparently he wanted to get some serious talking done, because nowhere was off limits for conversation. Rather than put a conversation on hold, he would have reporters and aides follow him into the bathroom where the dialogue was supposed to continue. Needless to say this often inspired discomfort.

Johnson is reported to have had conversations while exposing his genitals, urinating in the sink, and sitting on the toilet, but as far as the observers could tell, it never caused him any embarrassment. Some presume that his actions stemmed from a desire to show his power and to put others in an awkward position so that he could better control the conversation. Possibly he simply didn’t want to stop talking.

But surely the President wouldn’t behave this way in front of women or influential people . . . right? Wrong. Presidential historian and former White House aide Doris Kearns Goodwin remembers not only regularly accompanying him to the restroom, but also his criticism of his National Security Advisor’s response when asked to accompany him in a similar manner. Apparently extremely uncomfortable with the situation, McGeorge Bundy stood in the farthest corner of the bathroom with his back toward Johnson. The president, dissatisfied with the speaking arrangements, said, “Come closer, come closer.” Bundy complied, and Johnson later remarked, “I thought he was going to sit on my lap! Hasn’t that guy ever been in the Army?”

Whatever his reasons, it was something that appears to be entirely unique to LBJ. There are no records of any other American president doing such a thing. It seems bizarre, but hey, if you were the leader of the most powerful nation in the world . . .

        Aw, stupid little brown boy trying to get a taste of the interwebs.

    Johnson was also known to invite guests to go swimming, and then to swim nude. Physically Johnson was, how shall I put it…VERY well endowed. Psychologists have suggested he used the tactic of shamelessly presenting his enormous schlong to intimidate other world leaders and members of congress. He was THE Alpha Dog. I suspect his bathroom conferences were the impromptu version of this tactic. (I’ll show them what they’re up against!)

      Kind of reminds me of myself. .

    • aussieshepherd

      I’ve heard that’s where the term “Johnson” comes from referring to ones “gear.”

  • dubya

    That Bundy was a prick.
    Even if you aren’t gay who wouldn’t jump at the chance to see Mr Presidents Willie? Think of the stories to your grandchildren..

  • gillybean

    Holy shit!! I guess you don’t need a flashers mack when you’re the president!

    “Lyndon B. Johnson, *our* 36th president” – just fuck off. Assuming only Americans read this or no other forms of government are worthy of even acknowledging is getting very tiring. Why not say “Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th president of America”. Because that who he was – no more.

    • Just fuck off, Fred. It’s not ‘America’. It’s the ‘United States of America’. It is getting very tiring to read the comments of such ignorant people.

      • RyanTee82

        And people from the United States are called “Americans”, not “United States-ians”.

        • why not call people from the usa, usans? It even sound like you sam.

    • DarthPoot

      I believe the writers wording simply implies that the writer is from the u.s.

  • Jum1801

    Nancy Dickerson was a groundbreaking female network political correspondent. She was a high profile White House reporter in the 60’s primarily for NBC IIRC. NBC political corespondent. Seems LBJ had her into the toilet to talk with her while he took a dump.

    And while we are speechless at the utter crudity, cruelty and bullying which such behavior reveals, these White House reporters who submitted to watching the President of the United States wipe his ass. were the same men and women who despised NIXON!?! So, tell me again: who it is that is so twisted and perverse that he desperately needs psychological profiling?

  • rhijulbec

    The man was a redneck hick…an intelligent hick, but ya just can’t scrub the red off the neck no matter how high you are in the food chain.

    • A very corrupt hick at that. As governor, he literally bought an election. (hired people to submit false absentee ballots)
