VIDEO: Jimmy Carter on The View Discussing “White House Diaries”

Jimmy Carter on The View discussed his new book “White House Diaries” which chronicles his days during his presidency. Among the things that Barbara Walters, the fearless hostess of “The View” who was definitely there to talk to the former President discussed were Carter’s criticisms of Ted Kennedy.

Walters mentioned that Carter didn’t need to say things about Kennedy because he is no longer here to defend himself. Carter countered that he wrote the book 31 years ago, to which Barbara exclaimed that he didn’t have to publish it now.

Carter agreed, and then mentioned that he has to make a living- something the audience chuckled about.

Other topics discussed by the former commander in chief was unemployment, healthcare, and more. He even compared his candidacy to the Tea Party movement, stating that “I see a lot of parallels between my candidacy and the Tea Party. I would not have been elected had there not been a tremendous amount of dissatisfaction and discouragement and disgust with what was going on in Washington .”

In the end, it was a great interview. You can watch the entire episode of “The View” below. Weigh in and let us know what you think about Jimmy Carter on “The View”.
