The former peanut farmer and president was spotted on a flight from Atlanta to D.C. Oh, he also shook the hands of every passenger on his flight.
At 92-years-old, Carter walked through the cabin and greeted every single person on the plane.
And there’s video.
Captured by James Parker Sheffield, the footage shows a smiling Carter interacting with the passengers while being trailed by security. The captain is heard over the loudspeaker giving the standard pre-flight safety comments and no one seemed to notice.
Sheffield told WSB-TV Atlanta: “It’s hard to put into words what a nice reprieve from the current political theatre this moment was.”
He added it was very clear former President Carter genuinely loves people.
“His enthusiasm was authentic and humble, in a way that made things feel less heavy for a moment.”
