Former Commander-in-chief Jimmy Carter had an interview with the New York Times this past Saturday and what he had to say will shock a lot of Democrats.
I’m sure President Carter has strong philosophical disagreements with President Trump on how the country should be run, but he’s an example of somebody who can favor other political points of view yet remain intellectually honest. Good for him.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about”
That statement alone is worth its weight in gold. To see a former leader of this country agree with most of us who watch it on the ground every day is refreshing and calls for some admiration. Carter is willing to put politics aside to speak on behalf of President Trump. That means a lot.
One more thing, during his interview with the NY Times, he implied the Clintons use their Foundation as a slush fund. Now, that’s huge also. Someone better get some protection around Carter and family quickly.

The Times’ Maureen Dowd asked Carter about other presidents becoming rich in their post-presidency years. The former president said he was emulating the example of Harry Truman, but he added that he has no problem with other presidents making money.
Instead, Carter has pursued humanitarian causes in the years following his administration.
And when Dowd compared Carter’s charitable foundation to the Clinton’s, the former president wasn’t having any of it:
When I compared the Clinton Foundation with the Carter Center, Carter noted: “Rosie and I put money in the Carter Center. We never take any out.”
Carter’s implicit message? The Clintons have used their charity to get rich.
When the conversation turned to President Trump, though, the former president rushed to the current White House occupant’s defense:
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter replied. “I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”

The media has lost all sense of journalistic integrity! They are so focused on their anti-Trump antics that they have damaged our country with their divisiveness. They are harder on Trump than they are on Kim Jong Un and ISIS.
Of all the former Presidents, he’s the only one to offer his help to President Trump. Very classy, very American, and a true Christian man.
Thank you, sir, for speaking up. You know what a tremendous burden he has been under, so your words carry more weight than anyone.
