While self-isolating, I’m autographing prints of me & the #Apollo11 crew at the start of a 3 week quarantine, talking w Pres Nixon, after returning from the Moon. Proceeds benefit @SalvationArmyUS #COVID19 recovery efforts. Go to: #BuzzAldrinForStayingSafe
Former House impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler tells @andersoncooper he believes what Pres. Trump did was “far worse” than what impeached former Pres. Nixon ever did.
Endangered Species Act was signed into law by Pres. Nixon, today in 1973.
#OTD in 1969, Pres. Nixon hosted the #Apollo12 astronauts & their wives at the White House. Their entertainment - watching “Marooned,” a 1969 film about 3 American astronauts who become stranded, only to be saved by the Soviets before their oxygen runs out. Strange choice.
Pres. Nixon resigned 44 years ago. Hard to convey those days, the sense that the country was coming apart. Thought the era of “enemies lists” was safely behind us! But a lesson from then that makes me an optimist today: we fought back and we changed the congress and the country.
"I think there is some confusion that it has to be a crime to be impeachable. Abuse of power, lying to the American people were two grounds for Nixon's articles of impeachment before he resigned." - Tom Coleman, a former Republican lawmaker calling for Pres. Trump's impeachment
“We are aware of no President, not even such ruthless pragmatists as Richard Nixon or Lyndon Johnson, who would have written a public statement like this without so much as a grace note about America’s abiding values and principles.”
The #Apollo11 crew returned to Earth#today in 1969. After splashdown they wore special garments to contain whatever microbes they might have picked up on the Moon until they were placed in the Mobile Quarantine Facility on the USS Hornet. Pres Nixon welcomed them home. #NASA60th
Cynthia Nixon calls images of separated families "devastating." "I am glad [Pres. Trump] has signed this executive order against himself, protecting them from him. I wish he would sign some more executive orders protecting all of us from him."
