Literally one of the most insightful but deeply depressing moments in American television history. 

He’s happily admitting ON RECORD he broke the law.

But nothing will ever happen. There will be no consequences. 

And everyone knows it.

bbkld  asked:

What did Nixon do during the first week after his resignation?

Oddly, he had one hell of a dance party. Now, you won’t find many sources that confirm this, but believe me, as soon he got back to La Casa Pacifica, Richard Milhous Nixon cranked up some Tony Orlando & Dawn and got the fuck down. And he really didn’t stop dancing until he decided that he needed to get focused and prepare himself for the Frost/Nixon interviews. In 1977. So, he basically danced until Jimmy Carter was inaugurated. Don’t get me wrong, though – Dick Nixon wasn’t dancing out of joy; Dick Nixon danced out of pain.
