While president, Harding played golf, poker twice a week, followed baseball and boxing, and sneaked off to burlesque shows. His advisors were known as the "Poker Cabinet" because they all played poker together. Harding wore size fourteen shoes. He had the largest feet of the presidents. At smoke-filled poker nights held twice a week, Abrams says the whiskey flowed freely, even by a guest’s pet monkey who poured a bottle all over Harding’s white suit.

Charles R. Fall verwickelt war. Nach Zahlung von Schmiergeldern wurden wertvolle Ölfelder an zwei Firmen vergeben. Harding war zwar selbst nicht in diese Machenschaften verstrickt, spielte allerdings keine glückliche Rolle bei der Aufdeckung und Aufarbeitung der Skandale.
I have no trouble with my enemies, but my damn friends, my God-damned friends… they're the ones that keep me walking the floor nights!
Ich habe keinen Ärger mit meinen Feinden, aber meine verdammten Freunde, meine gottverdammten Freunde… sie sind es, die mir schlaflose Nächte bereiten!
In einer Zeit, die von rassistischen Vorurteilen geprägt war, wurde somit eine Rufmordkampagne betrieben. Spätere Nachforschungen ergaben keine Hinweise auf afrikanische Vorfahren.
Der zweite Ku-Klux-Klan gewann nach seiner Gründung zunehmend an Popularität und politischer Macht, insbesondere unter anderem in Ohio, der Heimat Hardings, und befand sich während der Roaring Twenties auf dem Höhepunkt seines gesellschaftlichen Einflusses.
Harding sprach sich im Gegensatz zu anderen Politikern seiner Zeit gegen rassistische Theorien aus und verurteilte die Gewalt gegen Minderheiten ohne den Namen des KKK explizit zu nennen.
Möglicherweise sei das Gerücht also von verärgerten Mitgliedern des Klan in die Welt gesetzt worden. Zu dieser Zeit begann die Korruptionsaffäre um seine Kabinettsmitglieder bekannt zu werden.
In Alaska erreichte ihn eine Mitteilung, in der illegale Aktivitäten detailliert geschildert wurden, worüber Harding sichtlich schockiert war.
Am Abend des 2. August starb er infolge eines Herzinfarktes oder eines Schlaganfalles. The two presidents appointed commissioners to reach a deal, and the U.
When Harding took office on March 4, , the nation was in the midst of a postwar economic decline. When Harding addressed the joint session the following day, he urged the reduction of income taxes raised during the war , an increase in tariffs on agricultural goods to protect the American farmer, as well as more wide-ranging reforms, such as support for highways, aviation, and radio.
An act authorizing a Bureau of the Budget followed on June 10; Harding appointed Charles Dawes as bureau director with a mandate to cut expenditures.
Treasury Secretary Mellon also recommended to Congress that income tax rates be cut. He asked that the excess profits tax on corporations be abolished.
The House Ways and Means Committee endorsed Mellon's proposals, but some congressmen, who wanted to raise tax rates on corporations, fought the measure.
Harding was unsure what side to endorse, telling a friend, "I can't make a damn thing out of this tax problem. I listen to one side, and they seem right, and then—God!
In the Senate, the tax bill became entangled in efforts to vote World War I veterans a soldier's bonus. Frustrated by the delays, on July 12, Harding appeared before the Senate to urge it to pass the tax legislation without the bonus.
It was not until November that the revenue bill finally passed, with higher rates than Mellon had proposed. Harding had opposed payment of a bonus to veterans, arguing in his Senate address that much was already being done for them by a grateful nation, and that the bill would "break down our Treasury, from which so much is later on to be expected.
A bill providing a bonus, without a means of funding it, was passed by both houses in September Harding vetoed it, and the veto was narrowly sustained.
A bonus , not payable in cash, was voted to soldiers despite Coolidge's veto in In his first annual message to Congress , Harding sought the power to adjust tariff rates.
The passage of the tariff bill in the Senate, and in conference committee became a feeding frenzy of lobbyist interests.
It wrought havoc in international commerce and made the repayment of war debts more difficult. Mellon ordered a study that demonstrated historically that, as income tax rates were increased, money was driven underground or abroad.
He concluded that lower rates would increase tax revenues. Taxes were cut for lower incomes starting in The lower rates substantially increased the money flowing to the treasury.
They also pushed massive deregulation and federal spending as a share of GDP fell from 6. By late , the economy began to turn around. The misery index, which is a combination of unemployment and inflation, had its sharpest decline in U.
Libertarian historians Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen argue that, "Mellon's tax policies set the stage for the most amazing growth yet seen in America's already impressive economy.
The s were a time of modernization for America. Use of electricity became increasingly common. Mass production of the motor car stimulated other industries, as well, such as highway construction, rubber, steel, and building, as hotels were erected to accommodate the tourists venturing upon the roads.
This economic boost helped bring the nation out of the recession. Harding had urged regulation of radio broadcasting in his April speech to Congress.
Both Harding and Hoover realized something more than an agreement was needed, but Congress was slow to act, not imposing radio regulation until Harding also wished to promote aviation, and Hoover again took the lead, convening a national conference on commercial aviation.
The discussions focused on safety matters, inspection of airplanes, and licensing of pilots. Harding again promoted legislation but nothing was done until , when the Air Commerce Act created the Bureau of Aeronautics within Hoover's Commerce Department.
Harding's attitude toward business was that government should aid it as much as possible. Harding warned in his opening address that no federal money would be available.
No important legislation came as a result, though some public works projects were accelerated. Within broad limits, Harding allowed each cabinet secretary to run his department as he saw fit.
This was consistent with Hoover's view that the private sector should take the lead in managing the economy. Widespread strikes marked , as labor sought redress for falling wages and increased unemployment.
In April, , coal miners, led by John L. Lewis , struck over wage cuts. Mining executives argued that the industry was seeing hard times; Lewis accused them of trying to break the union.
As the strike became protracted, Harding offered compromise to settle it. As Harding proposed, the miners agreed to return to work, and Congress created a commission to look into their grievances.
On July 1, , , railroad workers went on strike. Harding proposed a settlement that made some concessions, but management objected. Wilkerson to issue a sweeping injunction to break the strike.
Although there was public support for the Wilkerson injunction, Harding felt it went too far, and had Daugherty and Wilkerson amend it.
The injunction succeeded in ending the strike; however, tensions remained high between railroad workers and management for years. By , the eight-hour day had become common in American industry.
One exception was in steel mills , where workers labored through a twelve-hour workday, seven days a week. Hoover considered this practice barbaric and got Harding to convene a conference of steel manufacturers with a view to ending the system.
The conference established a committee under the leadership of U. Steel chairman Elbert Gary , which in early recommended against ending the practice.
Harding sent a letter to Gary deploring the result, which was printed in the press, and public outcry caused the manufacturers to reverse themselves and standardize the eight-hour day.
Although Harding's first address to Congress called for passage of anti-lynching legislation,  he initially seemed inclined to do no more for African Americans than Republican presidents of the recent past had; he asked Cabinet officers to find places for blacks in their departments.
Sinclair suggested that the fact that Harding received two-fifths of the Southern vote in led him to see political opportunity for his party in the Solid South.
On October 26, , Harding gave a speech in Birmingham, Alabama , to a segregated audience of 20, Whites and 10, Blacks.
Harding, while stating that the social and racial differences between Whites and Blacks could not be bridged, urged equal political rights for the latter.
Many African-Americans at that time voted Republican, especially in the Democratic South, and Harding stated he did not mind seeing that support end if the result was a strong two-party system in the South.
He was willing to see literacy tests for voting continue, if applied fairly to White and Black voters. He declared, "Despite the demagogues, the idea of our oneness as Americans has risen superior to every appeal to mere class and group.
And so, I wish it might be in this matter of our national problem of races. Harding had spoken out against lynching in his April speech before Congress, and supported Congressman Leonidas Dyer 's federal anti-lynching bill , which passed the House of Representatives in January Murray noted that it was hastened to its end by Harding's desire to have the ship subsidy bill considered.
With the public suspicious of immigrants, especially those who might be socialists or communists , Congress passed the Per Centum Act of , signed by Harding on May 19, , as a quick means of restricting immigration.
This would, in practice, not restrict immigration from Ireland and Germany, but would bar many Italians and eastern European Jews.
Harding's Socialist opponent in the election, Eugene Debs , was serving a ten-year sentence in the Atlanta Penitentiary for speaking against the war.
Wilson had refused to pardon him before leaving office. Daugherty met with Debs, and was deeply impressed. There was opposition from veterans, including the American Legion , and also from Florence Harding.
The president did not feel he could release Debs until the war was officially over, but once the peace treaties were signed, commuted Debs' sentence on December 23, Harding released 23 other war opponents at the same time as Debs, and continued to review cases and release political prisoners throughout his presidency.
Harding defended his prisoner releases as necessary to return the nation to normalcy. Harding appointed four justices to the Supreme Court of the United States.
When Chief Justice Edward Douglass White died in May , Harding was unsure whether to appoint former president Taft or former Utah senator George Sutherland —he had promised seats on the court to both men.
After briefly considering awaiting another vacancy and appointing them both, he chose Taft as Chief Justice.
Sutherland was appointed to the court in , to be followed by two other economic conservatives, Pierce Butler and Edward Terry Sanford , in Entering the midterm congressional election campaign, Harding and the Republicans had followed through on many of their campaign promises.
But some of the fulfilled pledges, like cutting taxes for the well-off, did not appeal to the electorate. From Republicans elected to the House in , the new 68th Congress would see that party fall to a — majority.
In the Senate, the Republicans lost eight seats, and had 51 of 96 senators in the new Congress, which Harding did not survive to meet.
A month after the election, the lame-duck session of the old 67th Congress met. Harding had come to believe that his early view of the presidency—that it should propose policies, but leave whether to adopt them to Congress—was not enough, and he lobbied Congress, although in vain, to get his ship subsidy bill through.
The economy was improving, and the programs of Harding's more able Cabinet members, such as Hughes, Mellon and Hoover, were showing results.
Most Republicans realized that there was no practical alternative to supporting Harding in In the first half of , Harding did two acts that were later said to indicate foreknowledge of death: he sold the Star though undertaking to remain as a contributing editor for ten years after his presidency , and made a new will.
By , he was aware he had a heart condition. Stress caused by the presidency and by Florence Harding's ill health she had a chronic kidney condition debilitated him, and he never really recovered from an episode of influenza in January After that, Harding, an avid golfer, had difficulty completing a round.
In June , Ohio Senator Willis met with Harding, but brought to the president's attention only two of the five items he intended to discuss. When asked why, Willis responded, "Warren seemed so tired.
In early June , Harding set out on a journey, which he dubbed the "Voyage of Understanding. Harding's political advisers had given him a physically demanding schedule, even though the president had ordered it cut back.
In Denver, he spoke on Prohibition, and continued west making a series of speeches not matched by any president until Franklin Roosevelt.
Harding had become a supporter of the World Court , and wanted the U. In addition to making speeches, he visited Yellowstone and Zion National Parks ,  and dedicated a monument on the Oregon Trail at a celebration organized by venerable pioneer Ezra Meeker and others.
The first president to visit Alaska, he spent hours watching the dramatic landscapes from the deck of the Henderson. The party was to return to Seward by the Richardson Trail , but due to Harding's fatigue, it went by train.
Two years after his death, a memorial to Harding was unveiled in Stanley Park. After resting for about one hour, he played the 17th and 18th holes so it would appear he had completed the round.
He was not successful in hiding his exhaustion; one reporter deemed him looking so tired that a rest of mere days would not be sufficient to refresh him.
In Seattle the next day, Harding kept up his busy schedule, giving a speech to 25, people at the stadium at the University of Washington.
In the final speech he gave, Harding predicted statehood for Alaska. Harding went to bed early on the evening of July 27, , a few hours after giving a speech at the University of Washington.
Later that night, he called for his physician Charles E. Sawyer , complaining of pain in the upper abdomen.
Sawyer thought that it was a recurrence of a dietary upset, but Dr. Joel T. Boone suspected a heart problem. The press was told Harding had experienced an "acute gastrointestinal attack" and the President's scheduled weekend in Portland was cancelled.
He felt better the next day, as the train rushed to San Francisco; they arrived on the morning of July 29 and he insisted on walking from the train to the car, which rushed him to the Palace Hotel   where he suffered a relapse.
Doctors found not only that his heart was causing problems, but also that he had pneumonia , and he was confined to bed rest in his hotel room.
Doctors treated him with liquid caffeine and digitalis , and he seemed to improve. Hoover released Harding's foreign policy address advocating membership in the World Court, and the president was pleased that it was favorably received.
By the afternoon of August 2, doctors allowed him to sit up in bed. At around pm that evening, Florence was reading to him "A Calm Review of a Calm Man," a flattering article from The Saturday Evening Post ; she paused to fluff his pillows and he told her, "That's good.
Go on, read some more. She resumed reading when, a few seconds later, Harding twisted convulsively and collapsed back in the bed, gasping. Florence Harding immediately called the doctors into the room, but they were unable to revive the President with stimulants; Warren G.
Harding was pronounced dead a few minutes later at the age of Harding's death came as a great shock to the nation.
Supreme Court. To date, Taft is the only former chief executive to have held this position. However, he also surrounded himself with individuals who were later accused of misconduct.
Harding was popular while in office, but his reputation was tarnished following his death when Americans learned of corruption within his administration—even though he had not engaged in any of this criminal activity.
In one infamous incident, known as the Teapot Dome Scandal , Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall rented public lands to oil companies in exchange for gifts and personal loans.
Fall was later convicted of accepting bribes and spent less than a year in prison. Other government officials took payoffs and embezzled funds. Harding himself allegedly had extramarital affairs and drank alcohol in the White House , a violation of the 18th Amendment.
In the summer of , Warren Harding embarked on a cross-country tour of the United States to promote his policies. During the trip, the year-old president became sick, and on August 2 he died of what was likely a heart attack no autopsy was conducted at a San Francisco hotel.
Millions of people across the nation gathered along the railroad tracks to pay their respects to Harding as his body was returned from the West Coast to Washington , D.
Although stories abound to explain just why he is considered our worst president, one of the funniest — depending on your point of view — is the fact that he gambled away an entire set of White House china.
And he bet it all on one unfortunate hand. After all, he had his cigars. And his poker games. Warren Harding was a confirmed poker fan long before he entered the White House.
While President, he played twice a week with assorted friends and members of his cabinet, including Attorney General Harry M.
