A lot has been made about how great it was to be John F. Kennedy.
Aside from getting to be president, which has some perks, he slept with the most attractive women of the 1960s, and mostly likely had access to the best cocaine and amyl nitrites, as well as a sweet beach house (I think) (He had to have had a nice beach house).
But did you know that alongside all that, the dude was fucking loaded? Yea. JFK’s family was worth over a billion dollars in today’s figures, according to 24/7 Wall Street:
John F. Kennedy was born into wealth. His father was one of the wealthiest men in America and the first chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Almost all of JFK’s income and property came from a trust shared with other family members.
Damn. Family money. Bitches love family money. No wonder he was getting laid on the REG. But that doesn’t even put him close to the richest president. He had like 14 siblings, so that inheritance, had he lived, woulda gotten spread out.
That would be old Gee Dub, George Washington, whose net worth was estimated at $525 million.
America’s always been an oligarchy, Bros. We’re only just realizing it now.
