Biden Accidentally Gives Details About Jimmy Carter’s Status Before Realizing What He’s Done

Multiple sources have reported that during a Democratic National Committee fundraiser Monday night, President Joe Biden claimed that former President Jimmy Carter asked him to deliver the eulogy at his funeral.

“He asked me to do his eulogy,” he said, before catching himself and adding, “Excuse me, I shouldn’t say that.”

Carter is in hospice care at his Georgia home.

“I spent time with Jimmy Carter, and it’s finally caught up with him, but they found a way to keep him going for a lot longer than they anticipated because they found a breakthrough,” Biden said, according to CNN and other sources.

Carter has been battling cancer for years. He announced in 2015 that it had spread to his brain, and four years later he had to have surgery “to remove pressure on his brain,” CNN said.

About a month ago, The Carter Center announced that the former president would stop receiving treatment, choosing instead to spend his final days at home.

“After a series of short hospital stays, former US President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention. He has the full support of his family and his medical team,” the short statement said.

Carter turned 98 last year.

On Feb. 27, Carter’s niece, Leanne Smith, said that she thought her uncle still had “some time in him.”

Earlier this month, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wouldn’t say whether Carter and Biden had spoken since the hospice announcement from The Carter Center, but said that she expected they would “when it’s time and appropriate.”

“They’ve known each other since 1976. It’s a relationship that has spanned many, many decades,” Jean-Pierre said, according to The Hill.

Biden made the Monday comments at a fundraiser in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with roughly 40 guests in attendance.

Fox News reported that Biden implied during the event that Carter’s cancer had returned. No recording of the event was permitted, however.

Last year, Biden created the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health in an effort he said was designed to “pursue ideas that break the mold on how we normally support fundamental research and commercial products in this country.” He urged attendees at Monday’s event to increase funding for that effort, Fox said.

He also commented on the “state of democracy” in the country and the “polarization in cable news.”

Carter was elected president in 1976 and served one term. He and Biden campaigned for each other and worked together when Biden was a U.S. senator during Carter’s presidency.

With the passing of George H.W. Bush in 2018, Carter became the oldest living former U.S. president.

    Carter is hoping Biden will get all the FACTS about his disastrous presidency wrong, just like he does when he’s talking about himself, or anything else for that matter. Or at least mumble indecipherable gibberish, as is often the case.

    Who’s previous eulogy is Biden going to copy and plagiarise? Everyone knows that this mental midget is incapable of an original thought.

    “We are here to celebrate the life of…well, you know.”

  • Scott says:

    I am still amazed Obiden’s handlers allow him to actually talk publicly.

  • Tamirose170 says:

    One was a peanut farmer before he became President and then he devoted 40 yrs of his life to Giving Back with Habitat for Humanity – so anything he might have done wrong he atoned for. I think he devoted the rest of his life to Helping Others whereas the other has done nothing for anyone else, but himself and his family. Not once has anyone come out the woodwork and told a story of how Joe Biden & Family has helped someone in need = ZILCH. Compare that to President Trump, where his views, ideology & humanitarian traits were well-documented and consistent for over 40 years! Big difference between Carter & Biden: One was a Peanut Farmer who lacked the experience for the role he undertook and one has been just clearly a pronounced racist, plagiaristic, lying, cheat NUT case for 5 decades! When the time comes, may he Rest in Peace ~ Thank you for all of the help you provided to the less fortunate and those in need. You were a humble man who always thought of others first ~ I’ll chose to remember him for what he DID do in life rather than his 4 yrs of his Presidency-he was better than Biden but then again ~ ~

    So what’s new? Biden rarely realizes anything he’s doing including when he poops his pants.
