12 July 2011 - Betty Ford said things that first ladies just don’t say, even today. She was open about the benefits of psychiatric treatment, and spoke understandingly about marijuana use and premarital sex, and as a new First Lady pointedly stated that she and the President shared the same bed during a televised White House tour.
After Ford appeared on 60 Minutes in a characteristically candid interview in which she discussed how she would counsel her daughter if she was having an affair, saying that she "would not be surprised," and the possibility that her children may have experimented with cannabis and if she were their age, she’d try it, too. Some conservatives called her "No Lady" and even demanded her "resignation", but her overall approval rating was at seventy-five percent.
Elizabeth Ann Bloomer Warren Ford, better known as Betty Ford, was First Lady of the United States from 1974 to 1977 during the presidency of her husband Gerald Ford. She died on the 8 of July 2011 at 93 years of age.
