    Trump is a cornered rat
    He will say or do ANYTHING to try to save Himself.

  3. I wanna hear what George Bush thinks if we should impeach Trump.

      That would be a very interesting interview. Good call

    • Whether or not he wants him impeached is one thing, but I do know there is no love between them. GWB has come out against Trump before. He’s too busy painting weird oil portraits to be bothered with politics right now. 😂

      They would put a noose around his neck and drag him behind a pickup. He is after all, a New York City grifter

    • @j wallace Yep. And he also actually works out by clearing brush, chopping wood, jogging and more on his ranch. He may have not have been the best president out there, but he knows how to stay in shape unlike Mr. Fast Food spread President Trump. Obama works out too staying in shape and Slick Willy exercises in a different way 😛

    Any of our recent past presidents stand in sharp contrast to Trump. The bar has been lowered so much for Trump. The sexism, the cursing, the unilateral decisions on war would never have been put up with or attempted by past presidents.

    The ONE president that wasn’t a complete monster.

    • @Trumpocalypse Relative to most of the rest of the world, you mean.

    • @KingDT2007 slavery is by definition literally the most repressive system possible

      @Vicara Vitakka Nah, he’s right. Lincoln was not the Great Emancipator, he was a guy that needed to preserve the Union at any cost. If he could have done that and not freed the slaves, he would have. He had a low moral opinion of black people and did think whites were better. Just because he freed the slaves doesn’t mean he respected them.

    • The last distinguished man who became president.

    He’s a tough ol’ bird!

  7. I’d vote for Carter right now.

      @Dana Herron Both are very honest. Especially Carter

    • He is also a true Christian which explains why the Trump supporting Christo-fascists hate him.

    • @LUIS VELEZ no Reagan while I disagreed sometimes on policy, he had successes, and said Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall. Where as Trump builds stupid walls and is owned by Russia.

      The nation mourned when Reagan died, and we will celebrate when TRUMP bites the dust. One big party!!!

  8. A real President. I almost forgot we had them. A human being as a POTUS imagine that.

  9. This guy has more on the ball than THAT guy.

    • @John David Wolf LMAO. Thank you for that “proper” clarification!
      I used to work with a guy who could cuss you out with proper terms & have you rolling on the floor. T’is an artform.

    • SpecialSP…u must be talking about Obama and his manly wife….

    What a man! The dude is 95 years old, but is fresh and awake like a 30 year old. And he articulates way better than the current president 🙂

  11. Some may argue about how good a president he was, but no one can argue about how great a human being he is.

  12. Jimmy Carter has literally done more for the country after being president, than the last 30 years worth of republican presidents have done while being in office.

    • @Mainely Hats off to those who made their own decision and up yours to those who would judge the actions of others involving an unjust and pathetic war. Easy to do by the uninformed and disrespectful.

    • @Richard Carpenter One was elected. The other are for profit.

      @Shadow little donny and ivanka are no match for billy carter and his beer swilling cohorts….thats what you call REAL family.

    • What did he do for the country as president ?

    Speedy Recovery Jimmy.. Its good to hear the voice of someone who was Presidential and honored the Constitution.

    • Ampersandrascott | October 8, 2019 at 6:59 PM | Reply

      notsac44 Like it or not, you’re bound by the same Constitution as the rest of us.

    • Jimmy Carter was one of the worst presidents of all time, probably in modern history. I like the man, but to take his commentary seriously on a political basis…..nah.

    • Ampersandrascott | October 8, 2019 at 10:33 PM | Reply

      Jay Reisnek Carter is probably happy that Trump is now, hands down, the worst President EVER!

    • [TRUMP]-[TOTAL WAR] | October 9, 2019 at 11:28 AM | Reply

      @Jay Reisnek not a very good president in terms of getting the economy moving but as a human being compared to the scum we have now he was a saint.

    I have always loved President Jimmy Carter…

    • He was ahead of his time! An honorable man.

    • Pearl Barkley | October 8, 2019 at 7:56 PM | Reply

      @Chatty Cathy yes… and compassionate as well. He is so humble and honest…

    • My grandmother met him in the 80s and said he was so kind and considerate to everyone who went to meet him. She said he shook every hand and took time to speak to each person who wanted to meet him or take a photo. He is a true gentleman and decent human being. God bless that man. 95 and still doing public service. That’s a hero to me.

    • @Amber Ellis thank you for telling us!!

    • @Amber EllisYes..a real gentleman 🙂🙂🙂

  15. They don’t make them like that anymore.

    Such a lovely lovely man. Our hero and national treasure. Hard to believe he’s still building homes and providing opportunities for poor people to thrive. God bless him and keep him healthy and strong.

    Jimmy Carter doing an interview from a Habitat jobsite just a few days after falling and getting fourteen stitches. He’s ninety five.
    Real president.

    • Great Juan Kenobi | October 8, 2019 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      Power corrupts Salute to this man.

    • michelle stein-evers frankl | October 8, 2019 at 6:06 PM | Reply

      Such an underrated president.

      But the Republican backlash against this very good man –and revenge for Nixon– was Ronald Reagan, Bush 41 and the permission for the MANY continuing corruptions that grew.

    • @michelle stein-evers frankl Yep… remember the “Boggie Man”? Ironically, died of a brain tumor… Reagan with dementia….and yet here he is… 95 and living his life to the fullest. Ain’t that something.

    • When you examine his presidency, and what he wanted to do as president, you realize he was making common sense decisions for the country. What he could not get done as president, he didn’t see why he couldn’t get it done as long as he was alive. Truest Patriot.

    • Motley Jester | October 9, 2019 at 1:36 AM | Reply

      THIS is a MAN.

  18. Desperately miss a time when presidents actually cared about the US population

  19. Looks like he’s still building homes…class act.

    • ღSwnsasyღ _ | October 8, 2019 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      D best Yes he still is! I’m 42yrs old and he’s going more than I am 🤣

    • Yeah right. He poses for a few pics and moves around for a little video and you really think he does this all day? He probably did this a total of 15min in a whole day just for the publicity. Little in the morning, little mid day and a little a little later, once or twice a year. Propaganda. lol

    • @Hesa Wanderer So cynical.
      Of course Carter isn’t jumping on and off the roof hitting nails in whatever nails on roofs are hit into.
      You think he got a black eye from opening a box of propecia or adderall ?

    • He fell, got stitches, and didn’t take a day off. He’s the real deal.

    • @Hesa Wanderer ….I want to apologize to you, I was the one who dropped you on you’re head as a baby👶

  20. “Tell the Truth, for a Change” – Should be very Easy for Jimmy, not for the current one..
