Can fishing be an act of cruelty to a human? Watch Eisenhower and Nixon

I felt more than a twinge of sadness to see Gen. Eisenhower humiliated his 1952 running mate by inviting the media to watch Dick Nixon learn fly fishing. Poor Nixon looked awful, and you have to wonder if the General was just training his subordinate on the relationship they would have. And to think years later an Eisenhower married a Nixon after both saw more of this.

By the way, later as President Eisenhower had extra trout dumped into a river before the news cameras arrived.
