However, while making the comparison, Trump referred to Carter as Jimmy Connors. “Jimmy Connors is—He’s also happy. Jimmy is a very happy man. Both of them because, you know what, they want him out. Jimmy Connors had a bad reputation. Right now, he is considered a totally brilliant president by comparison (to Joe Biden). Right now he is a totally brilliant president in comparison,” he said.

Jimmy Carter: 39th US President. Jimmy Connors: American tennis player. “We only need to retweet just one word. PAUSE,” one user said, while another observed, “He said Jimmy Connors. Then knew he was wrong. He tried to collect the last name”.

“Jimmy Connors? Wow!” one user exclaimed, while another wrote, “That mind is long gone. He’s got the memory of a collander. Memories go straight through and straight out.” One joked, “When was Jimmy Connors the brilliant tennis player president!?”
