Reagan's Press Conference

June 22, 1986

Doesn't Ronald Reagan terrify you, too? His senile confusion at his last press conference was the culmination of a scary series of bloopers that dramatize how totally out of touch with reality this man is.

His fantasy of having visited Nazi death camps as an Army photographer, his belief that nuclear missiles once fired can be called back, his equation of contra terrorists with our Founding Fathers, his assertion that Nazi war criminals were as much "victims" as the millions they murdered . . . could any other world leader make such statements without being bundled off to a hospital?

What's going on? Doesn't anyone care that this pathetic old man has our lives in his hands? Isn't somebody going to do something before the generals decide they have to save the nation?
