White House

Worst Person

Richard M. Nixon in newly released White House tapes:

"There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white. Or a rape."

How many ways is this awful? While, yes, sometimes an abortion is necessary, let's start with the dickish, racist notion that Mr. Nixon ranked "rape" and "a black and a white" as equally bad news, and go from there.
