‘Political Rewind’ replay: Jimmy Carter woos Donald Trump on North Korea

Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” begins with that New York Times interview of Jimmy Carter in which the former president:

— Said the press has been pretty rough on President Donald Trump;

— Expressed his doubts that Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential contest had a material impact on the results;

— And reminded everyone that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.

All in all, we decided, this is a fellow, who really wants to go to North Korea on behalf of his county to talk to Kim Jung Un – whom, Carter now assures everyone, isn’t as beholden to China as one might think.
