The former First Whore has announced she will be attending, alone. I won't post a link to the article as it's to FAUX News.


Former first lady Melania Trump is expected to join her contemporaries and other leaders at a memorial tribute service for the former first lady Rosalynn Carter.

Trump will be joined by other living former first ladies – including Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush – the Carter Center said Monday in a news release announcing the guest list for the Tuesday service at Emory University in Atlanta.

In addition to the former first ladies, President Biden, First Lady Jill Biden as well as Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff are all slated to attend the invitation-only service. Former President Donald Trump was not among the guests listed to attend the event.

Bill Clinton presented both Carters with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 1999, and worked hard to improve his relationship with Jimmy. Jimmy was a pain in Bill Clinton's ass when he was POTUS those first 4 years. He'd always call Al Gore, not POTUS. And honestly I can see why, because Clinton had a shit foreign policy when you think of Kosovo, Bosnia, Rwanda, etc. And Carter stopped him from invading Haiti, but suddenly visiting Haiti. Bill was thwarted. LOL! But they had a mutual enemy in Teddy Kennedy. Hillary and Bill promoted the children's healthcare program CHIP and screwed Kennedy over by telling him they wouldn't be doing healthcare right now but if he waited it would be reintroduced and they'd support him. Then they didn't. And of course Jimmy had no love for Teddy either.

Yes, R149, and my grandmother's case she wasn't even aware her mouth hung open. Little by little everything slowly stopped working. At the end we had to monitor her urine output and then the hospice worker told us the kidneys were beginning to shut down. Once that happened it as over.
