President Biden and first lady Jill Biden will travel to Georgia on Tuesday for a tribute service for former first lady Rosalynn Carter, who died Sunday at the age of 96, the White House said Wednesday.
According to the Carter Center, the service will be at Glenn Memorial Church at Emory University in Atlanta with invited guests. Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff will also attend.
Carter’s funeral service will be held Wednesday at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, according to the Carter Center. There will be a private interment at the Carter family residence.
The Bidens paid tribute to Carter in a statement on Sunday, saying she “walked her own path, inspiring a nation and the world along the way.” Mr. Biden ordered U.S. flags across the country to be flown at half-staff in honor of Carter.

What is even more interesting is the fact that the mainstream media decided to ignore the rest of the passengers on Air Force One!
Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama are all traveling with Joe Biden on Air Force One to Georgia today.
Tell me who’s running our beloved country without saying it…
