President Joe Biden told a room full of rich Democrat donors that ailing former President Jimmy Carter had asked him to deliver his eulogy.
Biden, who was first elected to the Senate career in 1972, four years before Carter was elected to the presidency, made the boast at a fundraiser in Rancho Santa Fe, California. Carter, who at 98 is 18 years older than Biden, entered hospice care last month.
“He asked me to do his eulogy,” Biden said, before adding, “Excuse me, I shouldn’t say that,” according to a pool report.

“I spent time with Jimmy Carter, and it’s finally caught up with him,” Biden continued. “But they found a way to keep him going for a lot longer than they anticipated, because they found a breakthrough.”
