Being President of the United States of America is probably one of the most challenging jobs in the world. While some presidents choose to relieve their work-related stress with a round of golf, others chose to seek the comfort of people who were not their spouses. Also, some presidents had more to deal with than just national and international matters, such as misbehaving children who disobeyed parental orders. From sex scandals and illegitimate babies, to arrests for protesting the CIA, America has a long history of scandalous first families in the White House.

1. The Clintons and Monica Lewinsky

While Bill Clinton was serving our nation as Commander-in-chief, a White House staffer named Monica Lewinsky told the world that she and her boss engaged in an “improper physical relationship.” While in a deposition, Clinton lied under oath, and the House of Representatives voted to impeach him for his dishonesty. Despite Lewinsky’s accusations, along with a long list of other women that said they had ‘relations’ with President Clinton throughout his career, Hillary stuck by her man rather than divorcing him for cheating.


2. The Kennedys and His Harem

Everyone has heard the stories of President John F. Kennedy’s dalliances with celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Angie Dickinson, and Marlene Dietrich (just to name a few), but the 35th President of the United States didn’t just look to Hollywood to appease his sexual appetite. While in office, when he wasn’t off on romantic weekends at the homes of celebrity friends such as Bing Crosby, Kennedy turned to White House secretaries Priscilla Weir and Jill Cowan (known by their nicknames of Fiddle and Faddle) for the loving he required. And to think this was all taking place with his wife, the beautiful Jackie Kennedy, right there.
