When I watch it, I get the sense they are clowning him. LBJ standing by looks him up an down as though for the last time(?).
The whole thing with the hat and the "I'll try it in Washington, you can come and see me wear it there"...
LBJ hated he wasn't in charge, hated the Kennedys, they hated him even more. "Come to Dallas Mr. President. We'll show you a good time."
To this day, why he went against all advice is beyond me.
get the same idea, too. If I could read his mind at this moment LBJ is saying to himself "Enjoy this breakfast motherf---er cuz you aint' gonna live to see lunch."
The funny thing is, JFK didn't like hats so why would they give JFK a hat for a gift?? Perhaps they were trying to embarrass him, or better yet, to test him.
JFK might have convinced himself that since he was in LBJ's home territory that he would be "safe".
Or maybe JFK convinced himself that by keeping LBJ close to him 1) at the Fort Worth breakfast 2) in the motorcade, that it would be "safe" for him to visit Texas for a very quick trip.
We were lied to about the JFK assisination and are still being lied to about today.
