Churchill ‘s White House Encounter
The American President Franklin Roosevelt saw Winston Churchill naked during his visit in the White House. Churchill had just taken his bath. He was walking around in nude while Roosevelt came in. The president quickly tried to leave, but Churchill told him to stay. Then Churchill declared that he had nothing to hide from his closest ally.
This incident is controversial. Because Winston Churchill later insisted that he never received the president without at least a bath towel to cover himself. However, Churchill’s stenographer and bodyguard both claimed to have witnessed the incident. Roosevelt’s secretary said the president told her about it later, describing Churchill as pink and white all over. Churchill himself once told King George VI that he was the only person on Earth to ever meet with a president naked.
Female Members Of Parliament And Winston Churchill
Nancy Astor, one of the first Female Member of Parliament, has once said to Winston Churchill.
If I were your wife, I would put poison in your coffee.
to which Churchill replied,
If I were married to you, I’d drink it.
The incident did happen, but it wasn’t Winston Churchill response. His good old friend Lord Birkenhead delivered the reply. However, Churchill responds to another female Member of Parliament accusing him of being drunk.
Madam, you are ugly, and I will be sober in the morning.
Winston Churchill Cigars Were Kept Wrapped Or “Naked”
Churchill developed his love of cigars as a young man. He traveled to Cuba to report on an ongoing rebellion against the Spanish colonial government. At any given time, Winston Churchill had cigars in his house. The cigars were kept wrapped or “naked” in labeled wooden boxes. The story that best illustrates Churchill’s love of cigars occurred during World War II. He had a special oxygen mask designed so that he could still smoke his cigar on an unpressurized, high-altitude flight.
