Political Trivia: King Louis XVI And Richard Nixon

July 22, 2015

While reading Jay Winik’s The Great Upheaval I ran across the famous quote from King Louis XVI.

It is legal because it is my will.”

I was reading outside at the time and placed the book in my lap. I thought of another person and the way he governed at times without rules, and made a similar statement.

That person was Richard Nixon.

When the president does it that means that it is not illegal.”
