The issue of presidential wives would have never entered politics during Ronald Reagan's day — but "today in social media … everything's fair game and that's sad," political commentator Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

Reagan told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth of a story during the 1960 race between Republican Richard Nixon and Democrat John F. Kennedy.

The Nixon campaign had photographs of "John F. Kennedy walking to hotels and into hotels rooms and exiting those hotel rooms with other women other than his wife," he said.

Reagan told Hayworth that his father believed that such information should not have been used in the campaign.

"The issue is can he be president of the United States," he said. "The issue isn't is he running to be the husband of the year.

"That is something between a man and a wife, that is not between the general public and anybody else," Reagan said. "Those stories never came out. Those photographs never appeared.

"But today in social media, the way the world is today, with all the media that's out there, everything is fair game and that's sad."
