>>Stephen: WHAT DO YOU THINK IT TAKES TO BE PRESIDENT? WHAT’S THE ONE — THE ONE

TELL THE TRUTH. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT I’VE CHANGED MY MIND LATELY.>>Stephen: DO YOU THINK THAT
YOU CRITICIZE — YOU WERE CRITICIZED FOR TELLING THE TRUTH
TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?>>I THINK I TOLD THE TRUTH
ALMOST ALL THE TIME.>>Stephen: WHEN DID YOU NOT
TELL THE TRUTH TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?>>MY MOTHER SAID I USED TO TELL
LITTLE WHITE LIES.>>Stephen: THAT’S WHAT HOPE
HICKS SAYS, TOO. ( LAUGHTER )
>>ONE TIME SHE HAD AN INTERVIEW AND A WOMAN CAME IN TO INTERVIEW
MOMMA, AND SHE SAID A LITTLE WHITE LIES. SO JIMMY DOES TELL LITTLE WHITE
LIES. WHAT IS THAT? SHE SAID WHEN YOU CAME IN THE
DOOR AND I SAID GLAD TO SEE YOU AND YOU LOOK VERY NICE? SO A LITTLE WHITE LIE EVERY NOW

YOU PRAY A LOT. DO YOU PRAY FOR DONALD TRUMP?>>I PRAY HE WILL BE A GOOD
PRESIDENT, KEEP OUR COUNTRY AT PEACE, THAT HE WILL REFRAIN FROM
USING NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND THAT HE WILL PROMOTE HUMAN RIGHTS. SO, YEAH, I PRAY FOR HIM. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS, FIRST OF ALL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. WE DO NEED THEM. BUT DO YOU THINK YOUR PRAYERS
ARE BEING ANSWERED SO FAR?>>WELL, I USED TO HAVE A PASTOR
WHO WOULD SAY, WHEN YOU PRAY, GOD HAS THREE ANSWERS — ONE IS
YES, THE OTHER ONE IS NO, AND THE THIRD ONE IS YOU’VE GOT TO
BE KIDDING. ( LAUGHTER )
SO I’M NOT SURE WHICH ONE IT IS YET. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: DONALD TRUMP’S GOTTEN IN SOME TROUBLE FOR SOME
OF THE ROUGH LANGUAGE THAT HE’S USED AND PEOPLE HAVE CRITICIZED
HIM FOR THAT AND I’VE CERTAINLY MADE SOME JOKES ABOUT IT.>>I’VE HEARD ABOUT THAT. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: YOU GOT IN A LITTLE BIT OF TROUBLE BACK IN
1980 IN THAT CAMPAIGN WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE TED KENNEDY MIGHT
RUN, YOU FAMOUSLY SAID TO A REPORTER, I WILL KICK HIS ASS. AND AT THE TIME, THAT WAS
UNIMAGINABLE.>>FOR ME, YES.>>Stephen: THAT A PRESIDENT,
FOR ANY PRESIDENT, THAT HE WOULD SAY THAT TO A REPORTER.>>I DIDN’T SAY THAT TO A
REPORTER. I SAID IT TO A CONGRESSMAN AND
HE REPORTED IT TO A REPORTER.>>Stephen: SO HE THREW YOU

( PIANO RIFF )>>BUT IT WAS TRUE, AND I DID. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: SO YOU’RE NOT AS NICE AS PEOPLE THINK! ( LAUGHTER )
>>MY WIFE CAN TELL YOU THAT.>>Stephen: YOU HAVE BEEN
CRITICAL OF SANCTIONS AGAINST NORTH KOREA. WHY IS THAT? WHY IS THE ISOLATION YOU THINK A
WRONG THING TO DO?>>WELL, BECAUSE WHEN WE IMPOSED
SANCTIONS FOR 70 YEARS AGAINST NORTH KOREA AND ABOUT THAT LONG
AGAINST CUBA, WE GET BLAMED FOR ALL THE THINGS THAT GO WRONG IN
THE COUNTRY AND IT EXALTS THE DICTATORS. THE DICTATORS ARE ALREADY
PUNISHING PEOPLE. THEY’RE ALREADY UNDER DURESS AND
PUNISHMENT, NOT ENOUGH FOOD AND FREEDOM AND THAT SORT OF THING,
AND WHEN WE PUT SOME ADDITIONAL STRESS ON THEM, LIKE NOT ANY
FOOD AID AND DESTROY THEIR ECONOMY, IT HURTS THE AVERAGE
PERSON WHO IS ALREADY SUFFERING UNDER THE DICTATOR AND THE
DICTATORS CONTROL THE NEWS MEDIA COMPLETELY SO THEY BLAME ALL THE
PROBLEMS THAT THEY IMPOSE ON THE PEOPLE OPEN US, SO WE GET BLAMED
IN CUBA AND NORTH KOREA FOR EVERYTHING BAD THAT GOES ON IN
THE COUNTRY. IT EXALTS THE DICTATORS AND
HURTS THE PEOPLE.>>Stephen: ARE YOU AGAINST
SANCTIONS FOR ALL COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN, CUBA, RUSSIA?>>I’M AGAINST ANY KIND OF
SANCTIONS THAT HURT THE PEOPLE WHO ALREADY SUFFER UNDER A
DICTATOR, YES. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: OKAY. WELL, THE BOOK IS CALLED “FAITH:
A JOURNEY FOR ALL.” I OFTEN WONDER WHAT THE MOST
IMPORTANT OF THE CARDINAL VIRTUES IS. DO YOU THINK ANY OF THEM ARE
ACHIEVABLE — FAITH, HOPE OR LOVE — WITHOUT COURAGE? DO YOU THINK COURAGE IS THE MOST
IMPORTANT? IT SEEMS ALL TAKES COURAGE TO
ACHIEVE.>>I THINK LOVE TAKES MORE
COURAGE PERHAPS THAN FAITH BECAUSE WE CAN’T AVOID HAVING
FAITH. YOU KNOW, WHEN WE ARE BABIES ALL
OF US HAVE FAITH IN OUR MOTHERS, WE’LL SAY, AND WE HAVE SOME
DEGREE OF FAITH IN OURSELVES, RIGHT? AND WE HAVE TO HAVE FAITH IN OUR
CLOSE FRIENDS OR THINGS THAT WE CHERISH, LIKE THE TRUTH OR FAITH
IN EDUCATION OR FAITH IN AMERICA OR FAITH IN WHATEVER COUNTRY WE
LIVE IN, FAITH IN FREEDOM. SO WE HAVE FAITH MANY DIFFERENT
THINGS THAT WE CAN’T AVOID, BUT IT DOESN’T TAKE ANY COURAGE TO
HAVE THOSE KINDS OF FAITH, BUT IT TAKES COURAGE TO HAVE LOVE
FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT FROM YOU AND IT TAKES COURAGE TO
HAVE FAITH IN PEOPLE THAT WE CONSIDER TO BE INFERIOR TO US OR
ENEMIES OF OURS. OF COURSE, JESUS SAYS WE SHOULD,
YOU KNOW, LOVE OUR ENEMIES AS WELL AS OUR FRIENDS AND HAVE
SO-CALLED AGAPE OR SELF-SACRIFICIAL LOVE OR LOVE
FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T LOVE US BACK, THAT TAKES A LOT OF
COURAGE, I THINK. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO HAVE THAT FOR — THAT IS THE
MOST DIFFICULT FORM OF LOVE TO LOVE YOUR ENEMIES OR LOVE THE
PEOPLE WHO DON’T AGREE WITH YOU.>>THAT’S TRUE.>>Stephen: HOW HAVE YOU BEEN
ABLE TO FIND THAT FOR, SAY, YOUR POLITICAL ENEMIES?>>I’VE TRIED TO GET RID OF ALL
MY POLITICAL ENEMIES BY FORGETTING ABOUT THEM OR
IGNORING THEM.>>Stephen: FOR MANET THERE I
THOUGHT YOU HAD A HIT SQUAD. I GOT RID OF THEM, SEE! I LOVE THEM WHERE THEY ARE! ( LAUGHTER )
>>SINCE I HAVE BEEN OUT OF POLITICS I TRIED TO GET RID OF
THE ANIMOSITIES I USED TO CHERISH.>>Stephen: AND YOU’VE
OUTLIVED MOST OF THEM, I’M GUESSING?>>THAT’S ANOTHER SECRET TO MY
SUCCESS, YES. ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )>>Stephen: WELL, JUST IN
CASE — SIR, JUST IN CASE YOUR CHANGE YOUR MIND, WE HAVE A
PRESENT FOR YOU. IT’S CARTER 2020, STILL
CONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THIS IS FOR YOU, YOUNG MAN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU.>>Stephen: THE BOOK IS
“FAITH: A JOURNEY FOR ALL.” IT’S AVAILABLE NOW.

  1. Although the confiscated material was turned over to District police on the scene, witnesses and law enforcement agents say the Secret Service kept one box containing names and other information about high-level government officials who were clients of the male escort business.
    District police officials say that, to their knowledge, this is the first time the Secret Service has ever become involved in such a raid in this area.
    Initially, the Secret Service denied it was involved in the raid, but after a second raid of the 34th Place house on May 18, the agency acknowledged its involvement in the investigation.
    Secret Service spokesman Bob Snow said the agency participated in the search and seizure operation because of its jurisdiction over credit card fraud. "We come into such operations usually at the request of a U.S. attorney … if the fraud involves $10,000 or more … We are not involved in any local prostitution investigation," said Mr. Snow.
    Witnesses to the February raid said 12 Secret Service agents in blue parkas entered the house and spent several hours collecting and removing boxes of files.
    Federal and District investigators have since interrogated several prostitutes working for the ring, as well as clients of homosexual escort services operating under such names as Jovan, Man-to-Man, Metrodate, Ultimate Models and Ultimate First Class.
    In addition to credit-card fraud, the investigation is said to be focused on illegal interstate prostitution, abduction and use of minors for sexual perversion, extortion, larceny and related illicit drug trafficking and use by prostitutes and their clients.
    One of the chief operators of Professional Services Inc. and a regular client of the service speculated in separate interviews that the investigation would be restricted because "big names" were involved.
    "Henry Vinson [the operator] said a high level official is going to try to block the investigation and may succeed," said Mr. Balach, the labor secretary's liaison to the White House. Mr. Vinson said he believes a highly placed federal official, whom he would not name, is working to derail the investigation, but he would not elaborate.
    Authorities have been investigating possible credit card fraud by the ring operators since last fall.
    […]
    Operators of the ring told The Times that videotapes, audio tapes and still photographs were made of sex acts performed by clients and the call boys, including perverted acts.

  2. Thank you so much President Jimmy Carter live long life, I'm sure it is great time for me to connect with all the president and I feel I am living with them.
    Thank you,thank you very much for this interview.

  3. Colbert was awesome on comedy Central and even took jabs at Obama. But since working with CBS he clearly took their stance on a one sided democratic agenda… What a sell out. Fyi I'm not a Republican or democrat..

  4. Jimmy Carter considers himself a Christian, based on his interpretation concerning the " Holy Bible"; meaning, he's a fraud!; in other words, the " Holly Scriptures" specifically indicate GOD's chosen people ( Israel), until Abraham thru GOD, gave us all the grace to be "All GOD's choosen children". He ( Jimmy Carter), did not consider, acknowledge, nor embraced Jerusalem as Israel's Capital; meaning, he ( Jimmy Carter), went against GOD's " Holly Scriptures". Hypocrite!!!

  5. Former Prez Carter may not have been the best president ever, but he is a great humanitarian and an even greater human being.

  6. My message to all Americans:

    Elect another President like this man if you want America to re-emerge as a true champion of peace, human rights, honor and dignity.

  11. This the most decent President we have ever had. He was too honest for all the political sharks for sure.

  12. .
    I don't know of single president who has been truthful about the Federal Reserve and the military industrial complex.

  13. Jimmy Carter should have been reelected for a 2nd term in office and then his Vice President Walter Mondale should have won for 2 terms in office after he finished his time as president.

  14. Bernie Sanders is right on the money – Universal Health Care – no deductibles, no copayments, and no “insurance” middlemen.  The right wing zombies who’ve been trained to fear democratic socialism are delusional worker ants blindly and unknowingly serving the corporate  interests of shadowy plutocrats who lie to them about markets, money and taxes, in the same way their various unscrupulous, money grubbing clerics have lied to them about god and jesus ever since the nonsensical Nicene Creed was cooked up by Constantine’s lackeys at the Council of Nicaea in 325AD. It’s an old hustle progressives are finally deflecting.

  15. Carter…oh, you mean the idiot who invited Castro to send his entire prison population to the US in 1980? Oh, I love his accent.

  16. I like President Carter. He’s done a great deal for poor people around the world. He’s still got spunk.

  17. So we should remove all dictators that abuse the people buy giving the people iPhones with free internet and inform them of what going on in the real world

  18. 94 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOW
    And, STILL THE WORST PRESIDENT WE EVER HAD !! ALSO, A COMPLETE SCUMBAG !!!! JUST ASK ANY SECRET SERVICE AGENT EVER ASSIGNED 2 PROTECT HIM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I will miss him when he passes. A man of incredible intelligence, very thoughtful and although a man of God, never militantly imposes his faith on others. A far cry from the current evangelical voting block I see today. Carter, whilst embracing his faith, also respected the institutions he served, that of plurality and the strength that it has given America. A strength that has made the USA unique in history and the wider world.

  20. Jimmy, I elect you to pray to Jesus for Donald Trump. My part is to pray to Jesus for a return to the assassins of the 1960s. Ah…those were the days when men were men and assassins were assassins. Call me nostalgic.

  21. In today's Democratic party, President Carter would have never been successful in the primary.
    He would never been nominated.

  22. Our last honest president; and he might have become one of the great ones if his successor had not committed treason (with Iran) to beat him in the next election.

  23. Hes just a Coward Fool old man scared of his own shadow, Incapable to disappoint the Hungry Low lifes inmorality, he just let them hear, what they want to hear.
    Hes ready to die, but still doesnt repent, and even got balls to pray for Donald.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
    He should start praying fir his worthless ass on this earth.

  24. I’m a little surprised that JC did not throw that “still living congressman” back under the bus, as in “You ratted out my potty mouth, I’m going to rat you right back Jack!”(but I’m too Christian to do it while you’re still alive)

  25. He truly is a reminder to always be kind at all times. Even the most seemingly insignificant negative remark will be remembered.

  26. Dannng frist time seeing this video and pres Carter seem like he was the man. And at 93 talk better then this present guy we have whoa

  27. Hearing a President talk like this, in these times, makes you immediately wonder what foreign country he must be from.

  28. President Carter & First Lady Rosalyn, Will Be Remembered As One Of The Top Most Prominent & Influential leaders To Be In Our Nations Whitehouse. God Bless Them Both💞

  29. Never fired a shot in anger and never tried to rightfully claim credit for freeing the Iranian Hostages. He just did it, and let Reagan claim the glory.

  30. Bobby Kennedy, who's playing the role of Jimmy Carter "is still praying for Donald Trump," a fellow clown actor? Lol…

  31. Jimmy needs to pray for himself. He's a Christian Jew hater. That's an Oxymoron. 2nd worst president ever. Thank BO.

  32. It is a pleasure to hear from President Carter. I often wondered, however, what President Carter really says about Trump behind closed doors! 😊

  33. Carter, Clinton, G.W Bush and Obama are the last living former U.S. presidents. Carter is the oldest longest living president in American history.

  34. Americans didn't like Jimmy Carter all that much when he was president. He only served one term
    (1976-1980). Then the movie star came in!

  35. He should've been interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel. That interview with George w bush in jimmy Kimmel is what I wish this interview was like. He likes to laugh and joke but the interview host studdered a lot not enough punch lines boring deliveries. Jimmy Carter shoulda had more fun.

  36. If I was interviewing him, I would do the interview standing. Just a token of respect for the old ex President's truthfulness and care for the environment.
