  1. Donald J Trump is killing this country

  2. mcenany has also tested positive.

  3. TheCultLeader In Chief | October 5, 2020 at 12:39 PM | Reply

    The criminal in chief with his chaos regime needs to be voted out. We need a decent man in a WH. We need a real president with a real First Lady. We don’t want criminals and escorts running our country

  4. Made a bigger impact OUT OF OFFICE………and Regan kept AMERICAN HOSTAGES IN IRAN…….so he could look good politically

  5. I only have sincere sympathy for the children, of the Republicans who tested positive.

  6. Thank you President Carter for giving those of us in the military at the time that 14.3% pay raise in 1980 and that 10.9% pay raise in 1981.

    • And not firing one bullet or dropping one bomb.

    • @Roger Wilco so much for that 3.1% pay raise that President bone spurs said was the biggest ever that the men and women serving this country got that he didn’t even give it to because it was simply a cost of living allowance (cola)!!!

      @Doug Ohaver Hope you received a purple heart too for your head injury.

    • @elroy the great so Elroy the great what are you great at besides trolling those of us that kept this country safe for idiots like you. I’m going to take wild guess that you never served because you had either a arthritis of the brain or the one I’m leaning towards is, bone spurs!!!

    Jimmy Carter was a ray of sunshine & a Saint compared to Demonic Donny!

    • Deborah Freedman | October 5, 2020 at 2:51 PM | Reply

      He was a terrible president, all about appearances, but utterly useless. In his lifetime, whenever there was a conflict between good and evil, he always sided with evil.

  8. A compassionate and honorable person. 🙏❤️

    Compare Carter with what we have now makes me sad and puke. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

    God Bless F.President Carter. It is enough for him that he ended the ground war between Israel and Arabs

    Carter went on to serve humanity after being President & will always be respected for his housing initiative!

    • Corey Mondello | October 5, 2020 at 3:02 PM | Reply

      Doug Schaufele most Democratic Presidents do serve the public after leaving the WH, unlike Nixon, Reagan, GHW Bush, GW Bush, nor will Trump!

    • @Corey Mondello Your slightly wrong about GHW Bush because he worked with Bill Clinton wrt Tsunsmi relief in 2014 and,
      I think, after the big earthquake in Haiti.

    • Trump is serving humanity on a platter.

  11. Jimmy Carter was a President who actually cared about the American people.

  12. Yong K peterson | October 5, 2020 at 1:52 PM | Reply

    IN THE 80’S .

  13. President Carter was a likeable man. He gave up his business so he could run for office, never violated the emoluments clause.

  14. One day we will mourn President Carter’s passing and celebrate his life. That can’t necessarily be said about Donald.

  15. I cried when Jimmy Carter lost to the Ronald Reagan’s trick (alliance) with Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini . Reagan sold high tech weapons to our enemy Iran (see movie Argos).It was the IRAN-CONTRA affair. Google it. Jimmy Carter was the best president we ever had. A visionary who put photovoltaic cells on the White House roof and Reagan removed them for spite; who broke down Mama Bell Monopoly into 5 smaller companies; deregulated the airlines, etc. And never attacked any country… And a true Christian who never used religion for politics. He should be in Mount Rushmore…

    • @J O i know. I am not denying Reagan’s opportunism to get credit for releasing the hostages. No doubt about that. What i am saying is that Jimmy Carter’s focus on human rights violations, however well-intentioned, led to the overthrow of the Shah, something that the world and the people of Iran have been suffering the consequences for ever since. He was naive and betrayed the Shah by not even letting him come in for his surgery. What does that tell other US allies? Plus he said he was reassured by Brezhnev that the Soviet were not going to invade Afghanistan, which they did right after they told him that. Being a good person does not mean being good at foreign policy. Even his camp david accord with Saddat ended with Saddat’s assassination. Egypt got a piece of desert land back from Israel and the US has to pay them money, billions every year, for them to keep their peace with Israel! So he wasn’t exactly good at foreign policy. I like his solar panels though.

    • MrZZooh, Carter had no choice the ayatollah controles the oil price and the embargo sent the prime rate to 21%

    • Gregory James | October 5, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      @MrZZooh the shah, like most of the fossil fueled and led kingdoms, was an Enron implant. The fuel crisis of the 70’s, the best profit driven market campaign ever, staged by the profit before people elite. The shah was less popular than Saddam.

    • doobie s oringes | October 5, 2020 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      MrZZooh You, like the far majority of Americans, know little history including and esp. its most trecent. You merely parrot what someone else has manufactured.

    • @doobie s oringes , let’s try a little history, to whom did Mary Todd Lincoln owe a lot of money? You can not google that… LOL

  16. PATRICK WILSON | October 5, 2020 at 2:16 PM | Reply

    Everyone knows that orange face is a lair. Everytime he opens his mouth . So why believe him now. To have doctor’s lie also. They must be getting paid alot of money.

  17. Vittorio Abbate | October 5, 2020 at 2:17 PM | Reply

    This is what a real president was before the Orange Sphincter come ti ruin everything.

  18. Jimmy Carter was a rockstar!
    He, to this day, is a good Christian..

  19. ❤️Jimmy Carter …He was truly a President for all Americans. He is a decent, kind, compassionate and honest man. Trustworthy. An inspiration. Memories…of when we have had presidents to be proud of.

  20. Catherine Thompson | October 5, 2020 at 2:35 PM | Reply

    Jimmy Carter is the most ethical president the U.S. has ever had and of course not appreciated or supported by the powerful. He was a real committed Christian able to respect other religions and cultures.
