Bill Clinton’s horndog reputation is well known.
In an interview with Aaron Klein, Linda Tripp — to whom we owe the discovery of Bill Clinton’s tawdry adulterous trysts with White House intern Monica Lewinsky — said Bill had had sexual relations with thousands of women. One of Bill’s mistresses, attorney Dolly Kyle, said that years ago he told her he had had 2,000 sex partners.
According to a new book on the Clintons, Bill & Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love, co-authored by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince, Bill even pounced on former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Darwin Porter is a travel writer for the Frommer Guidebook series. He has written more Hollywood celebrity biographies than any other journalist, including biographies of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, as well as biographies of politicians, including J. Edgar Hoover and The Kennedys. Danforth Prince was a co-author and director of the some of the Frommer travel guidebooks.
Bill & Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love has been reviewed by many news sites, most of which emphasize Hillary demanding Bill take an AIDS test because of his philandering and preference for “unprotected sex.” Less publicized is another shocking claim in the book — Bill Clinton had “tried to seduce” Jackie Onassis in her Fifth Avenue apartment.
As recounted by Page Six,
“We almost indulged in a wrestling match. It was most embarrassing,” they [Porter and Prince] report Jackie told friend Katharine Graham, the former Washington Post publisher.
“I mean, I was flattered that I turned him on so much at my age, but Bill was just like Jack [Kennedy] in the sense that neither of them wanted to take ‘no’ for an answer. Ever since that day, I prefer not to be alone with Bill.”
The book claims that while Graham didn’t spill the beans, she once repeated the anecdote to Truman Capote over dinner, and he spread the story.
“We almost indulged in a wrestling match” and Bill not taking “no” for an answer sure sound like Jackie was mauled and almost raped by Bill Clinton.
