Donald Trump Prematurely Buries President Carter

One of the late afternoon speakers at today’s first day of the Conservative Political Action Conference was Donald Trump, who apparently was unaware that President Jimmy Carter was still alive:

Real estate mogul Donald Trump remembered the “late, great Jimmy Carter” during his speech at the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.

The problem with that is that former President Jimmy Carter is very much alive.

As is Abe Vigoda, just in case Trump was confused about that one too.

  1. Jimmy Carter’s not dead, just unconscious. Just like Gerald Ford.

    We know one thing, Donald Trump’s hairpiece is still alive.

  4. Tillman says:

    You’d think he’d get booed referring to Carter as “the late, great” at CPAC anyway. I don’t recall conservatives having a good opinion of Carter.

    Glad to hear “Fish” is still with us.
