In a truly fascinating online exhibit from the National Archives, the historic (and hilarious) meeting between Elvis and Nixon is documented with some surprising documents.
Here, a Nixon staffer suggests Elvis record a song “Get High on Life” and then recruit some of his rock and roll friends to write a musical of the same name to dissuade kids from dope.
Then, more shocking is the king’s claim that the Beatles were responsible for anti-American sentiment abroad!
How can anyone argue that Elvis was not high as hell when he wrote this?

Well, as to whether he was high as hell, according to the stationary he was aboard a plane.
Do you find it odd how concerned Nixon was about Elvis’ credibility? Apparently, Nixon cared more about it than Elvis did!
Anyway you look at it, that’s some fucked-up malt liquor.
Of course, Elvis did have kind of a point about the Beatles making a ton of money in America then bad-mouthing it…
Are you insane? There’s no point there. Good Lord…
