President Donald Trump got public support and validation from an unlikely Democrat source on Sunday.
Naturally, the New York Times put it into perspective for folks: “Jimmy Carter Lusts for a Trump Posting.”
Former President Jimmy Carter sided with Trump on key issues in the New York Times Sunday Review op-ed by Maureen Dowd, starting with the admission that the current president is a victim of a biased media.
But, based on that screaming headline, he must be brown-nosing for a job … at age 93.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” he said. “I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
Carter’s comments echo those of President Trump made in May when he spoke to United States Coast Guard Academy graduates.
“Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media,” he told the graduates. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, you can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
The former president also agreed with President Trump on the NFL kneeling protests.
“I think they ought to find a different way to object, to demonstrate. I would rather see all the players stand during the American anthem,” he said.
Carter also disagreed with Democrats, and his own wife, on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election helping President Trump.
“I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes,” he said.
“At the Carter Center, we deal with Putin and the Russians quite frequently concerning Syria.”
Carter said he would even be willing to help the current administration by acting as a liaison to North Korea if asked.
“I told (Gen. H. R. McMaster) that I was available if they ever need me,” he told the Times.
