Jeb! will never be the President. Why? Because, unlike his father and his brother, he does not have a discernible sense of humor. Today, for starters, you better be able to land a punchline and do sketch comedy. In another five star episode of Whitneyland, we track the nine TV presidents from Kennedy to Obama, hilariously documenting with many twists and turns, how humor, or the lack thereof, can make or break a president. Perhaps more significantly, LBJ hits on Jackie Kennedy within a month of her husband’s assassination! Finally, the show ends with with an exclusive and shocking bit of presidential oratorical history. We also hear from comedians Dana Carvey, Bill Maher, David Letterman, Rosanne, Drew Carey, Jerry Seinfeld, talk show hosts, Jack Paar and Stephen Colbert, politicians, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, John Kasich, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, and Jeb Bush, and the “executive producer” of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, Michael Deaver, and former First Lady, Jackie Kennedy.
Today Whitneyland breaks news! According to Ronald Reagan — caught on tape — his then-Vice President George Bush had a drug problem! That’s enough show for most people, but we don’t stop there. The rest of today’s show is set against the backdrop of Barack Obama’s visit to Federal prison and my darkly hilarious, true, personal story about the gyrations I had to go through to legally support my family as a father with a felony conviction. We also hear from Richard Nixon and civil liberties advocate, Attorney Bryan Stevenson.
