Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme Just Wanted Ford's Attention With The Gun

Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, a former member of the Manson Family, opens up about her 1975 attempt to assassinate U.S. president Gerald Ford. According to Fromme, a section of redwoods in Northern California were in danger of collapsing, and she wanted to get Ford's attention so he could potentially save the beloved trees. In order to "get his attention," Fromme brought an unloaded gun to Sacramento's Capitol Park and confronted Ford.
