Shocker: Jimmy Carter Defends Trump

This blew me away to read. Never in a million years would I have expected Jimmy Carter, an icon to the far left, to publicly defend Donald Trump from the spurious Russia allegations and to excoriate the Hillary dead enders and die-hards.

Remember, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have stated in the past they believe the conspiracy theory that Russia “interfered” in the US elections and were somehow responsible for Trump winning.

It’s a sad day when Jimmy Carter sounds more moderate than the “conservative” Republican leadership:

Did the Russians purloin the election from Hillary?

“Rosie and I have a difference of opinion on that,” he said.

She looked over archly. “They obviously did,” she said.

He said: “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes.”

Rosalynn pressed, “The drip-drip-drip about Hillary.”

Carter noted that in the primary, “We voted for Sanders.”

I wondered how the starchy Carter, who put out a White House edict that nobody could fly first class, felt about the louche Trump White House, where conflict of interest has been replaced by confluence of interest.

“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.”

I also really like pictures of gas stations and claim full responsibility for the silly gas station motif. I'm presently trapped behind enemy lines in a blue state with no hope of escape! The ride never ends.
