From the Nixon tapes, then California Governor Ronald Reagan calls President Nixon to give his support during the height of the Watergate Scandal. Nixon had just given a televised address to the nation announcing that Haldeman and Erlichman had been let go, and that John Dean had been fired. It was the most gut-wrenching decision of the Nixon presidency–save Nixon’s own resignation the following year. Nixon allegedly got drunk after the speech and proceeded to make a series of emotional phone calls. On this call, it sounds as though Nixon has calmed down a bit, but is still out of it. “This too shall pass,” says Reagan.
