Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter "coming to the end," according to grandson

Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn are both in such poor health that their grandson believes they are "coming to the end," The Hill reported. The former president is in hospice, while the former first lady has been diagnosed with dementia. 

In February, Jimmy Carter's charity, The Carter Center, announced that the 98-year-old had entered end-of-life care after his physical health declined. Wife Rosalynn, 96, is suffering from age-related problems of her own, confirmed by her diagnosis in May.

Their grandson Jason Carter said the pair remain happily devoted to each other. "They are together," he told reporters.

"They are at home. They are in love, and I don’t think anyone gets more than that," their grandson added.

"I mean, it’s a perfect situation for this time in their lives," Jason Carter said. He added that his father still talks to President Joe Biden "just to let him know that he’s continuing to think about my grandfather, pray for him."

Both Biden and Jimmy Carter are Democrats who hastened the decline of America -- economically, diplomatically, and reputationally -- during their time in office. However, Jason Carter chalks up their connection to their similar paths to the White House.

"He has lived in Plains, Georgia, in the same house that he built in the 1950s. And their ability to stay grounded in who they are, despite all of the things they’ve done in their life, is remarkable," Jason Carter said.

"And I think, frankly, Biden has that same kind of connection to who he was in, like simpler and more humble times despite having spent his entire life in Washington," Jason Carter added. Unfortunately, his grandfather is in worse shape than the current president.

Jimmy Carter will turn 99 on Oct. 1, but Jason Carter said his grandfather does so as he faces "really significant physical challenges." Still, the former president is at peace as he enjoys watching baseball and spending time with his family.

Meanwhile, Rosalynn Carter, who just turned 96 last month, has taken her dementia diagnosis in stride. She enjoyed a quiet birthday at home with her husband, marking the milestone with cupcakes, peanut butter ice cream, and a release of butterflies, the Associated Press reported.

The Carter Center is hoping to celebrate Jimmy Carter's 99th birthday with help from the public. They've asked for photo and video messages that will be made into a mosaic.

"Our mosaic project is a symbolic way to show how we all play a part in President Carter’s remarkable legacy of service to humanity," the Carter Center said. What The Carter Center doesn't mention is Jimmy Carter's legacy of failure as president.

Jimmy Carter's profound incompetence is not limited to a single incident, but arguably his most infamous was the fact that Iran held American hostages for 444 days as he stood by powerless, the New York Times reported. The standoff only ended because former President Ronald Reagan was sworn into office, a fact that underscored President Carter's utter uselessness.

By all accounts, the Carters are lovely people who led good Christian lives. They will soon meet their maker and give an account of their lives, and God will judge them accordingly.
