A Wink and a Smile

On November 22, 1963, aboard Air Force One, immediately after being sworn into office as the 36th President of the United States, witnesses claim Lyndon Johnson turned to look at his friend, Texas Congressman Albert Thomas. White House photographer, Cecil Stoughton, captured the moment Congressman Thomas winked and smiled at Johnson. When asked about the wink, Cecil Stoughton is said to have stated that it could have been, “innocent or sinister and I have leaned to the latter.”
