Top Ten Presidents Who Had Affairs

While we like to imagine our commander in chief as being moral, there are many instances where this, sadly, isn't true. Here are ten Presidents that had affairs.

The Top Ten

1 John F. Kennedy John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29th, 1917-November 22, 1963) commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, more.

We knew this was coming. Kennedy slept with a countless amount of women during his presidency, claiming that if he didn't, he would get severe migraines. Even before his presidency, he was known to have involved himself in orgies as a Senator, and even slept with Marilyn Monroe. He was also alleged to have purposefully gotten a woman drunk, and... you know. Kennedy was no doubt the biggest skirt chaser as President. - Alpha101

Thank you for this list Alpha101 and I read a biography of him and it says that JFK slept with Marilyn Monroe but not other details that you listed but thanks - Kevinsidis

2 Lyndon B. Johnson Lyndon Baines Johnson, often referred to as LBJ, was an American politician who served as the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969.

Johnson once claimed that he "Had more women by accident that Kennedy ever had on purpose." Yikes! Once he was having... relations with a coworker on a couch, and his wife walked in. Because of this incident, he had a button installed to warn him when his wife was near, so he could hide his acquaintance in a nearby closet. - Alpha101

3 Bill Clinton William Jefferson Clinton (Born August 19th 1946) is an American politician who was the 42nd President of the United States. He previously served as governor of Arkansas. He became president after unseating incumbent president George H.W. Bush in 1992. He was re-elected in 1996 after defeating Senator more.

Too bad Hillary didn't win the 2016 election, she would be in the top 3 of this list, beating even her husband! - RogerMcBaloney

Probably the most infamous one on this list...

I did not have sexual relations with that woman.

This worst act was the Glass Steagall Act. - iliekpiez

4 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

While it is rumored (who am I kidding, probably true) that he had an affair with Stormy Daniels, it is known that he has had affairs in the past. Like Clinton, he was also accused many times of sexual misconduct and assault. - Alpha101

He had an affair with a... I can't say it. - awesomedp900

5 Franklin D Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events more.

Yes, even FDR had an affair. His mistress was a woman named Lucy. His wife Eleanor found love letters between them, and threatened divorce unless he promised never to see her again. He did, but he didn't. She was even at his death bed. Awkward. - Alpha101

6 Warren Harding

Harding had an affair with a woman thirty one years younger than him. GROSS! He also fathered a child put of wedlock with said woman. - Alpha101

7 Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and served as the 3rd President of the United States from 1801-1809. He was born on April 13, 1743, and died on July 4, 1826, on the same day 2nd United States President John Adams died.

Jefferson had a less than consensual affair with one of his slaves. He fathered five of her children. - Alpha101

8 Dwight Eisenhower Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower was an American politician and general who served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe.

Ike had an affair with his personal driver during the war. - Alpha101

...and his personal driver was ... a female or male? - Metal_Treasure

9 James Garfield James Abram Garfield was the 20th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1881, until his assassination later that year.

Garfield allegedly had affairs with a few women before gaining the Presidency. - Alpha101

10 George H.W. Bush

Bush was also alleged to have an affair, but he and his family have constantly denied it. Although, the evidence is pretty convincing. - Alpha101
