John Lennon & Richard Nixon (The John Lennon Story, Chapter 2)

32 minutes

As John Lennon becomes the most famous political dissident in America, President Richard Nixon becomes increasingly paranoid. Nixon defends his legacy as well as the lengths to which his administration went in order to silence the rabble rousing ex-Beatle. Nixon’s own fears led him to believe that John wouldn’t just sway the youth vote, but that he would violently disrupt the country. Nixon’s tales include wiretaps, riots, and even the Godfather himself, James Brown.
