Forty years ago, Richard Nixon made history by becoming the first U.S. President to resign.
On Aug. 8, 1974, he delivered this televised message.
Harry Shearer, the actor most known for his turn in “This is Spinal Tap” and “The Simpsons,” talks about his latest project, "Nixon's the One," in which he plays the former president. The YouTube series is made up of recreations from the Nixon White House tapes. As Nixon, Shearer recites the exact dialogue captured on the tapes.
