Deadpool Star Leslie Uggams Says LBJ Propositioned Her In White House

11 posts in this topic

Leslie Uggams has sung with Louis Armstrong, starred in Roots (one of the most-watched TV series of all time), and traded zingers with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool character. Still, nothing can quite compare to the time she met President Lyndon B. Johnson.  During his time as president between 1963 and 1969, Uggams, then an in-demand performer, says she was invited by the White House to sing for Johnson and guests.  When she was offered a tour of the White House by the president himself, she and the other invited performers couldn’t resist. “The next thing you know he says, ‘Hey, you want to come up to the second floor?’ We were like, ‘Yeah!’ Who gets to go up there other than the people who live there?” Uggams, 75, recalls. “So he’s giving us a tour of everything and he’s talking. You know how when there’s a group of you, like at a museum, and you may stop to look at a painting longer than the others — well I was walking with the president. We were ahead of Bob Hope and the rest of the people that were entertaining. And we get to a bedroom, and he says, ‘Oh this is the famous Lincoln Bed.’ And I say, ‘Wow this is a part of history.’ And so he shows me the bed and slyly says, ‘I sure would like to get you onto that bed.’ I was like… what?” And that’s when someone famous came in to save the day.  “But just as my eyes were crossing, Bob Hope came and walked into the bedroom and that was the end of that,” Uggams adds.

*****************************************************************************************************

So only Bob Hope, avatar of middle America, rescued Leslie Uggams from the clutches of LBJ.  That was fitting.   He was outstanding when it came to Civil Rights and the Great Society, but when it came down to it, LBJ was still a nasty old excessively erotically fixated fiend. No shame in his game.  Ironically, if uber-lothario JFK had been alive and done the tour, Leslie would have been safe as he wasn't known to go after AA women.

I believe it. Leslie Uggams was fine as Heck when she was younger.

Indeed.  Even during her senior years she has maintained a good physique.  She reminds me of one of the old ladies in my church.  In her eighties but still trim.  In fact a male acquaintance who met her about a decade and a half ago said, “Yeah i’d  hit it.”  :eek::eek:

LBJ and his "Jumbo" ... he  was a loathsome pig.

Lyndon Johnson was always eager to let those around him know that he had an unusually large penis. Reviewing a biography of Johnson in the New York Review of Books, historian Marshall Frady noted:

He early became fabled for a Rabelaisian earthiness, urinating in the parking lot of the House Office Building as the urge took him; if a colleague came into a Capitol bathroom as he was finishing at the urinal there, he would sometimes swing around still holding his member, which he liked to call “Jumbo,” hooting once, “Have you ever seen anything as big as this?,” and shaking it in almost a brandishing manner as he began discoursing about some pending legislation. At the same time, he would oblige aides to take dictation standing in the door of his office bathroom while he went about emptying his bowels, as if in some alpha-male ritual assertion of his primacy. Even on the floors of the House and Senate, he would extravagantly rummage away at his groin, sometimes reaching his hand through a pocket and leaning with half-lifted leg for more thorough access.

Your acquaintance sounds like less of a pig than LBJ.

Indeed.  LBJ would not have survived politically in the #MeToo era.

Is this where the nickname "Johnson" came from?

In the hood, some of us occasionally used the slang "johnson-swanson".

I never did like LBJ. Thank you for giving me another good reason.  

Kind of makes you wonder about what he really thought his "great society" would be like. :P
