A 100-year-old sex scandal in the Oval Office was recently unearthed when the Library of Congress unsealed love letters from President Warren G. Harding’s illicit relationship with Carrie Fulton Phillips. The 29th president was known to be fairly bad at his executive position and the extensive collection of racy memoirs (for 1910’s standards) proves why.
Rarely missing out on an opportunity to connect the political dots with the pop culture ones, Jimmy Kimmel called on Warren G (as in Griffin or G-Funk) to read the letters out loud to provide some context to just what we’re dealing with.
The G-Child sat suited and booted in a spiffy white dress shirt while the house band remixed a grown and sexy instrumental of “Regulate” as Harding’s deepest carnal desires were mocked.
“Oh Carrie! Wouldn’t you love to get sopping wet out on Superior–not the lake–for the joy of fevered fondling and melting kisses,” he recited. The crowd took joy in laughing along, knowing that these are real personal quotes from a former commander-in-chief.
Harding was married to Florence Harding from 1891 until his death in office in 1921 but apparently kept up the affair with Phillips for more than 15 years. She too, was also married.
