Jimmy Carter Reluctantly Agrees To Run in 2020 To Put An End To This Nonsense

After heavy persuasion by supporters and colleagues, a reluctant Jimmy Carter has finally agreed to run in 2020 to put the country back on the right path.

First President in the late 1970s, Carter was seen as well-meaning but out of his depth. His stock has soared since then following his work in the international community.

Carter was dismayed at the rise of Donald Trump but hoped the Democratic Party would be capable of producing an acceptable alternative besides himself. Carter was appalled when Clinton lost in 2016, and is beside himself over the hold Russia has over the current administration.

“I’m not known for swearing, but in the Navy back in the 1950s we’d call this a clusterf**k. Forgive me, Rosalynn.”

Carter, despite being in his mid-nineties and have recently gone through successful chemotherapy, has finally accepted the fact that he’s the only politician with an ounce of sense left in the United States, making it his duty to run again.

“That Bernie Sanders has promise but all he can ever talk about is banks. But since he’s a youthful 78, I’m thinking of making him my VEEP so I can train him on the job to take over.”

Carter wants everyone to know that this is absolutely a one-off, even if he could run again in 2024.

“Then you’ll just have to learn to stand on your own two feet.”

Like Breaking Burgh? Don’t give us a handout because then we’ll immediately stop writing and magically turn into lazy good-for-nothing communists just like Mitch McConnell says. But you can help by buying our low-priced eBooks – they’re the best books!

  1. I would love to see Jimmy and Bernie as a team. Young or not at least they have brains that work and their sh*t together. No nepotism there either.

  2. He cannot run for a third term, and at 100, it’ll be time for him to leave public life. We need a very young person as his running mate, however; Bernie won’t do.

    • Carter only served one term, 1977 to 1981. He technically could be elected to, and serve one more term, not that anyone would actually want that.

    Wonderful!
    I think there needs to be an imarcial investigation of the present Republican Party! It should be headed by the Honorable Mr. Carter. Colin Powell and Madaline Allbright need to be on the committee. Glen Greenwall and Dan Rather need to be involved. There are others who are honest. I would not be opposed to someone like the Canadian PM being involved. Someone from another country might be a good thing. He would have no skin in the game so to speak. NOT Mr. Putin!
