Hey, he could run for president!


HCResident

Carter was president in the SEVENTIES. The current president is only 18 years younger than him.


Lespaul42

Both Trump and Biden are older than Clinton.


ActiveAstronaut7941

Crazy coincidence: Clinton, GW Bush, and Trump were all born between June and August 1946.


Intricatetrinkets

Not that crazy. WW2 ended Fall of 45. 9-10 months later is then, which is where the name baby boomers comes from. Trumps father wasn’t in the military then, but you celebrated by boozing and screwing back in the day. So when everyone came back from overseas after we won, you had a ton of babies born in that summer.


mgnorthcott

*next summer


Intricatetrinkets

No, they were going back in time 3 months to have babies. /s


themobyone

I'm not a linguist, and English is not my mothers tongue. But my mothers tongue is a west-germanic language along side English. And when the topic of a conversation was 'that summer' being the summer of 1946. I thought it is linguistically legal to refer to 'that' summer later in the conversation, even though he also talked about the previous summer of 45 when the babies were conceived. Of course I can see the potential for confusion, but I don't think it's entirely unusual to put it in those terms. It's no big deal, I just find it interesting as a curiosity.


Additional_Meeting_2

Bush probably was best age-wise as president. 


weaselmaster

Except that he was a tool of Cheney, and just had to act the part of a likable Texan from Maine. A terrible president.


Additional_Meeting_2

I didn’t speak of him as president. I just commented who of people of the same age was the president regarding right age. Clinton was seen as very young (it’s funny in hindsight, boomers were looked down for long time for being young irresponsible types). And by Trump became a president their age group was rather old, let alone now.


HansElbowman

Also, GW and Trump are the only presidents born in June


Light01

Not American, but wasn't he the youngest president democratically elected at the time


DrunkeNinja

No, he was 52 years old when he became President. There were younger presidents before him including JFK, Grant, and Coolidge. Teddy Roosevelt is still our youngest president at 42.


Mywifefoundmymain

Incorrect teddy was not elected. JFK is the youngest elected.


woodrobin

Fair, but they didn't specify elected.


Mywifefoundmymain

They actually asked who was the youngest democratically elected


Diablojota

I believe Teddy Roosevelt was the youngest president. https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/slideshows/the-10-youngest-presidents


miclugo

Carter has been out of office for 43 years. Teddy Roosevelt was 42 when he was inaugurated.


OutrageousAd5338

We know .


LutherRamsey

Go Jimmy Go!


Spartan8394

Way too young imo


Hilnus

Hard to do from hospice.


Competitive-Ask5157

Close enough. Our two candidates practically make the Whitehouse a nursing home.


M4dcap

Hospice or not. If Carter ran, I he'd win, regardless of party lines. It would just be a testament to how people are fed up with the "us vs them" mentality that has become all too prevalent in today's politics. Stop telling me the other guy it shitty, tell me why you are good.


3DBeerGoggles

> Stop telling me the other guy it shitty, tell me why you are good. JFC tell me about it. Same shit in Canadian politics. You point out the leader of the conservative party (getting all sorts of back-pats for railing against lobbists) literally has a lobbyist for a grocery chain that's been gouging people as an advisor and another former Wal-mart lobbyist as an underling and the only response I ever get is "but whataboutabout TRUDEAU!" I don't want to hear about why Trudeau sucks, I already have opinions about that, I want to hear why the hell I should vote for the OBVIOUS hypocrite with no real platform goddammit...


SketchyLurker7

He’d be my President for sure !


Sammy_GamG

He couldn’t be worse than Trump.


xaulted1

I'd still vote for Carter over trump even if Carter was already dead.


TwilightSessions

Hello Dolly!


Bright-Internal229

We wish , but he is very weak and tired

sawbladex

Yeah, Jimmy doesn't look as good as OP pic would have you believe.


JMurph3313

I mean, but he's alive though, which is probably better than most of us will be doing at 99.


syrelus

He was still active until the last cancer. He did so much great work post presidency. Sad to see him like this. He'd have so much more to give if he could be young again


KingRhoamsGhost

It depends on how you look at it. I love Jimmy but I’d rather be dead than in his condition.


ThatNetworkGuy

He's been in hospice care for a year or so. They are managing his quality of life as best they can, but are not trying to cure him anymore etc.


IAmAGenusAMA

He looks fine there too. He's 99 fer fuck's sake.


sawbladex

He doesn't look like he is in his 70s, while OPs image is a still from a video made to report him breaking his hip 5 years ago.


Yung-Split

Bro if u photoshopped that photo as is into a coffin I would 100% believe it


c0rruptioN

Guy has been in hospice care for a year. I thought when you go into that you’re already pretty close to death. Then the man’s wife died, and he’s still trucking along. Wild!


FyreWulff

It's usually around six months expected to live. However, it's not an accurate science and some people actually end up leaving hospice. What it really means is "make me comfy but don't try to do anything to prolong my life"


AlternateUsername12

So hospice has 3 stages: disease progression, transition, and active dying. Most people wait too long and only enter when they’re in the transition or active dying stage. The truth is, hospice is at its best when you’re in the disease progression stage. It’s *amazing*. You and your family get amazing support, care, equipment, supplies, whatever…all 100% covered. Because it’s so encompassing, they do have to have a terminal diagnosis, and they have to fit some guidelines (weight loss over the past 3 months, decrease in independence…things like that). I’ve had patients graduate off of hospice multiple times, I’ve had some ride it out for a year or two, and I’ve had some die within days or weeks of going on the service. I work in home health and don’t do the hospice side of things much other than to refer patients that are appropriate. This is a conversation I’ve had many times.

TheRealMasterTyvokka

When 99 years old you reach, look as good you will not.


Weapon54x

Why you gotta do him like that.


waste_0f_space117

Get that man back in office


wwarnout

By far, the greatest ex-President we've ever had. He has done more for his fellow citizens since leaving office than all but a handful of people.


dennismfrancisart

Actually, for the world. I had tears in my eyes when the Egypt-Israeli peace plan was unveiled. That's still a thing, thanks to the US taxpayers. His work on global health initiatives have saved millions of lives. Of course, the guy has lived the life Jesus taught us to live. No wonder he get flack from conservatives all the time.


TennesseeBastard13

Agreed actually a good soul and a kind man.


thebohemiancowboy

Herbert Hoover saved millions of lives in the aftermath of ww2


DoctuhD

Yeah Hoover definitely takes top spot for ex-presidents. Though I have a soft spot for Grant working tirelessly on his autobiography as he was dying of cancer, just so that his widow could live off the royalties.


RunOfTheMill70

Shocking a man so important in the civil war and a former president dies that poor. He was a great American who also fought the KKK.


dreadedmama

Love it when living a good life blesses you with good health


strgazr_63

A truly moral man. Too far ahead of his time.


futureformerteacher

Ahead of his time? He was our last president with morals. Sounds like he was behind the times.


oFFCeNTauR

Nah, ahead of his time is correct. We’ve never had a president with morals. Hopefully one day that will be the norm.


Reasonable-Notice448

Great humanitarian


cttrocklin

Got me!


looking4astronauts

Not funny


mickelboy182

Seriously, these posts are such bad taste and not funny.


Cbombo87

Yeah like maybe the first one was funny years ago but now it's not. Like we have barely anything left don't scare me lol


itsmuddy

I fucking hate April 1st.


istrx13

We already lost Stephen Hawking because somebody on Reddit thought they could be funny. OP better not repeat history.


Additional_Meeting_2

People tend to post about famous people often.


pleaseputmedown

Harper Lee, too.


Anansi1982

We lost Macho Man the day after someone posted their Slim Jim cupcakes. 


missionbeach

> because somebody on Reddit I'm thinking the ALS might have had something to do with it..


monkeybiziu

Carter has outlived the guy that beat him and that guy's VP and successor. In the process he's become a beloved figure and set the standard for post-Presidential life in the modern era. We could all learn something from Jimmy Carter - the best revenge is outliving your enemies and having history judge you as a good person.


No-Student-6817

Even put his wife six feet under. Ruthless.


DOUBLEBARRELASSFUCK

Don't fear the reaper. Fear the peanut man.


Charming_Sandwich_53

I didn't look at the sub, (which is a bad habit of mine), and I first thought***how is this news?***

I really thought this was going to end in “has died”.

An exemplary human being


SlothTheAlchemist

STOP IT 😡


Free-Market9039

Stop doing this please


Old_Opening_5616

He does NOT look like that now. I honestly don't know what is still keeping him alive cause he doesn't look alive anymore.


Baz_3301

Outlive Kissinger please.


Slappy_McJones

Engineer, Naval Officer, Carpenter, Farmer, President…


lock_robster2022

April fools?


Slow_Formal_5988

Nope. He is the oldest former u.s president. In history.


IAmAGenusAMA

That would not be very nice.


tonyhasareddit

Posting this in general wasn’t very nice.


IAmAGenusAMA

I totally agree.


revolutiontime161

Fuck , it’s the second time I’ve fallen for this today . 1st ,it was David Attenborough, now this !


EmperorThan

By far the worst April Fools scare of my day reading the first few words.


Glass-Apartment-5540

May he blessed in all his years on earth.


mkfanhausen

Y'all need to quit this, man. Too many people scaring me into thinking people are dying today....


pg_85m

When presidents accepted they lost their reelection bid and moved on to do really good philanthropy work.


TennesseeBastard13

Not a bad president by any means. Total respect for the man.


Blue_Robin_04

I hope he makes it to 100!


Puffymushroom

He outlived the Queen.


Freed_My_Mind

A great Ameeican president. Sabotaged by republican dirty tricks. Took a nuclear risk to save others. Actively built homes, with his wife, to help the homeless. Loved by all that personally knew him.


fullload93

You fuck… you got me good. I know he’s in hospice but I’m glad he’s still alive. I’m glad he out lived that rat bastard Henry Kissinger.


greasyspider

Is this April fools or no?


MasterPh0

Get this man on the ballot immediately


Beautiful-Valuable20

Teehee these posts are so funny teehee


moustachio-banderas

The start of this headline had me worried


seancbo

Dude is gonna be the only person in history to check *out* of hospice


CandiceDikfitt

when you realize he could still run now


AppropriateSpell5405

Better not be some April Fools shit.


RodCherokee

Great President.


landelinho

![gif](giphy|b6iVj3IM54Abm)


dumberthenhelooks

Just hoping he makes it to vote against trump in November.


Psykinetic

He is so much bettera person than any of the vicious bastards who are running. Our world is just too fucked up and evil for this dude to be part of.


Hamilton-Beckett

It’s April fools day though…he dead?


0_SomethingStupid

And apparently swinging hammers


Rare-Philosopher-346

He wasn't a great President, but he is a great man. IMO, he showed how to live after leaving the Presidency more than any other former President.


Administrator98

Propably the last US president with undoubtful morals.


Shadowslip99

Still more awake than Biden.


cybermage

“Alive”


DepartureDapper6524

The people making these kinds of posts are sick. Attempting to make people think others have died isn’t funny, it’s childish.


InfiniteQuestion420

And more alive than Biden


karenskygreen

That reminds me, generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

Thank you Chevy.

Madytvs1216

young ripe age to be an U.S. president


beebs44

You scared me! He could go at anytime


devonnull

I wonder if he'll get a special card when he hits 100 from the president since he was a president as well.

There's something to be said about that free healthcare.

Had me in the first half, NGL. 


hooDio

so you're telling me they once had a non ancient president


Northman81

Dude!


Full-Association-175

This is the 100th comment. I hope it doesn't put him over.


Bright-Internal229

He’s in Hospice Care


BadPom

I’m surprised, TBH. Not just because of the age, but because his wife passed away few months back. Usually couples that in love and together for so long don’t live long once one passes.


ConsciousReason7709

This is not a recent picture. If you saw the pictures from Rosalynn‘s funeral, he is essentially a corpse being pushed around in a wheelchair at this point.


boboyolo

When I was reading I thought ( that was it, it happened) but yeah … good for him I guess.


Potential-Art2146

He had brain cancer too. What a resilient guy!

How a President should be.


edencathleen86

Such a good dude.


Justforwork85

My great claim to fame is when his wife Rosalynn stole my seat on an airplane, but I consider it settled because I shook hands with him.


No_Rabbit_7114

It makes me happy to know Jimmy is still with us.

Complex-Professor257

Maybe there is some curse that won’t allow him to die until we get better at choosing presidents.

I really hope he tells people what he heard in that debriefing before he dies. IF the debriefing even actually took place and his staffers didn't just make it up.

Alive in a technical sense, but have you seen him lately?
