WORLD. S PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

YOU WERE THE PRESIDENT AFTER NIXON AND FORD AND AMERICA FELT
LIKE THEY WANTED A NICE GUY IN THERE. NIXON SEEMED LIKE, PARDON THE

HICKS SAYS, TOO. ( LAUGHTER )
>>ONE TIME SHE HAD AN INTERVIEW AND A WOMAN CAME IN TO INTERVIEW

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
UNDER THE BUS.>>HE DID, YEAH.>>Stephen: WHO WAS THE
CONGRESSMAN?>>I WON’T SAY HIS NAME. HE’S OUT OF OFFICE NOW.>>Stephen: OKAY. BUT STILL LIVING?>>YES, HE’S STILL LIVING.>>Stephen: WE’LL FIND HIM. ( LAUGHTER )
( 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. From Hong Kong! Trump asked who is the real enemy of the US? – Chinese people or the Fed chairman? I ask who is the REAL President of the United States of America? – Donald Trump or Howard Stern? PS. I love President Jimmy Carter. God Bless.

  2. The man who created all the Middle East TURMOIL and because of his incompetence, caused the deaths of millions of innocent men, women and children…

  3. That's so nice of Carter, praying for his President.  Most Americans agree that President Trump, is doing GREAT!!! and the Corrupt people who are feeding on the bottom of that Swamp, want to get rid of him at any cost.. But thanks to the Fake news and the Democrat Congress, they have guarantee another Donald J. Trump, BIG win in 2020.

  4. 86% of Americans cant wait for Trump's second Term.  As it will finally EXPOSE the evil lying cheating Dems.  Decades of the ole status qua, of stealing the American Tax payers money is finally coming to an END..   But these Clowns are trying hard to STOP their president from exposing them.. Too late for that, the genie is already out of that bottle. Thank God.. Keep Draining the Swamp.

  5. It's nice of Carter to pray for others, that is how a true Christian should be. He should also pray VERY hard for the narrow minded leftists , who have so much hatred & venom in them.

  6. Jimmy, you are going to have to double your prayers for the Traitor in Chief and his pals, he is going to need extra blessings to get out of everything he has done wrong.

  7. He needs to pray for our Country that has lost all sense of Truth an Honesty. It's not just Trump, The members of congress has totally lost it.

  8. May God continue to bless you, Mr Carter, and your wonderful family.

    How blessed, Mr Carter says that as president he may not always have told the truth.
    With Chump, we have his complete opposite. Someone who NEVER tells the truth, but who wants us to believe he never lies.

  9. Listen, Jimmy Carter is a nice enough guy, it's hard not to like him, but I can't help but remind everyone he's a war criminal. He had Mondale funnel weapons to the Suharto regime while they were committing a genocide. Or as close to genocide as we've come in recent history. High grade military weapons like sky-hawks, etc. The slaughtered the people of East Timor with our weapons. A quarter of the population. At the same time the press was condemning the atrocities being carried out by Pol Pot, Suharto was well ahead of the Khmer Rouge in the killings. They said they would stop the aide and kept sending them though Israel, I believe. We knew what they were doing. FYI The more you know!

  10. What is this extraordinary man doing on this unfunny dickhead's "show"?! TRUMP 2020. Colbert, you looked like an absolute fuckwit after Trump won in 2016

  11. Jimmy Carter is a better man than he EVER was as President. I voted for him and watched our country go stagnant under his leadership.
    The only President worse than Jimmy Carter was Barack Obama.

  12. The crazy part is that they would elect him again if he ran. He had more progressive agenda 40 years ago when some of these candidates have now. He actually put solar panels on the White House while he was president. Then he had to watch it when asshole Ronald Reagan, republican 'god' took them down.

  13. 2012 Obama was caught on an open mike telling Russian President Medvedev, This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility on Europe-based missiles].’ Medvedev I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir Putin. 2015 was virtually ignored, despite documenting Bill Clinton’s $US500,000 for a speech in Moscow closely followed by Hillary waving through a Russian company takeover of 20 per cent of US uranium reserves. Through 2015-18, the Uranium

  14. Trump pisses off the arrogant Liberal Democrats ruling classes compass is spinning around no one knows which is north or south. Curiously enough to know where the compass is heading after Trump syndrome public facade of politics. Big Media war against Trump.The document from the start of the Hillary Donald race to the Mueller report last March. Typically, 90 per cent of Trump items per month are negative.When a radical leftist gunned down Republican congressman Steve Scalise a year later, Benn tweeted that the shooting was understandable but not well enough organised. A CBS subsidiary published an anti-Trump novel by Hollywood’s Sean Penn  with a message to the president, ‘We are a nation in need of an assassin.All politics tragics know about Russian lady lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya meeting Donald Trump Jr in Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 to hand over dirt about Hillary this smoking gun fired blanks. But did you know the Russian lady met with Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS on the day before Trump Tower. On the same day, and on the day after, while Fusion was on Hillary’s payroll seeking dirt on Trump? To anyone not from Mars, that Tower meeting now looks like Democrat-Russian collusion for a sting. Network news interest? Zero.

  15. You can take a breather President Carter Trump could care less about our Democracy or the US pray for our Republic because this mandi does not serve your GOD, Bless you for trying.

  16. I will never forget the news "president elect Jimmy Carter" and was exhilarated l never knew why. When l see Carter still talking l feel at peace. God bless President Carter.

  17. 06:00 Interesting points … But unfortunately aid to countries under despots mostly ends up benefitting the despot rather than the ordinary people. :'(
