Son of The Household Cavalry
Josiah Barlett. He admitted it in West Wing. (It is a documentary isn't it? What ever happened to the one before, G Dubya?) |
Bartlet: I smoke two cigarettes a day.
Leo: It's a bad example.
Bartlet: For who? Russian spy satellites?
The second site says Lyndon Johnson smoked cigars, in which case the last to smoke cigarettes would be Eisenhower. However, the first site says LBJ puffed cigs and Eisenhower quit before he became president, which would make him a non-smoking pres in my book. Assuming they're talking about LBJ's first heart attack in 1955 and not the one that killed him, that would make him a cigar-smoking president. If the chart in the second site is correct, Franklin D. Roosevelt was the last president to smoke cigarettes. |
''Dwight Eisenhower who rolled his own, sustained four packs a day, but quit cold turkey before his presidency. Lyndon Johnson used three packs a day until his heart attack forced an end to the habit.''
