Watch Jimmy Carter Get Asked About Trump’s Alleged Affair With Porn Star Stormy Daniels

Former President Jimmy Carter gave an interview to CBS This Morning, which aired Tuesday, to promote his new book — Faith: A Journey For All. Carter, it can be argued, is the most religious president in American history. To this day, in fact, he teaches Sunday School at a Baptist Church in Georgia.

So here he is commenting on the current president’s alleged affair with a porn star:

“I think most people want a president whom they trust to tell the truth always, and who has some basic moral values,” Carter said. “That including loyalty to his own wife.”

Perhaps preferring not to dwell on the moral implications, Carter also weighed in on the potential political ramifications of the alleged Stormy Daniels tryst for President Donald Trump.

“It will help the democratic Party in 2018 and perhaps 2020 and will be damaging to President Trump,” Carter said. But, he added, “In a way it will be damaging, but I don’t think it’s going to have as much effect as it would have had, say, 20 years ago.”
