Obama has apologized for that Nancy Reagan seance comment today. But did Nancy Reagan do seances? Nope, seances weren’t Nancy Reagan’s style. Rather, Nancy used astrology, claimed Donald T. Regan.
Regan claimed that Nancy Reagan used an astrologer to plan Ronald Reagan’s schedules. President Reagan, however, made it clear by saying said “no policy or decision in my mind has ever been influenced by astrology.”
So did anyone do seances in the White House? (Yes, this sounds like a Double Jeopardy question.)
As AP reports, it was Hillary Clinton as Former First Lady who was accused of being a fan of the seance. A Bob Woodward book said Clinton had someone help her get in contact with Eleanor Roosevelt. “Newsweek magazine, which was promoting the book, characterized the visits as “seances,” a term that White House officials disputed.”
