While Satchmo was waiting in line with his satchel of marijuana to be inspected, Vice President Richard Nixon showed up, followed by reporters and photographers.

Nixon saw Armstrong in the line and immediately asked the goodwill ambassador what he was doing there waiting in the line. Satchmo told him how he was just coming back from his goodwill ambassador tour of Asia and was told to stand in the line for customs.
