‘I was always willing to do things that others were not willing to do…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, called President Donald Trump “the worst president” the U.S. has ever seen in a recent interview with The New York Times.
“Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral,” Reid said in the interview published on Wednesday. “Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn’t make a difference. No conscience,” said Reid, who once shrugged off brazenly lying about candidate Mitt Romney on the Senate floor by rationalizing that it worked.
“I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had,” Reid continued. “We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second to him. He’ll lie. He’ll cheat. You can’t reason with him.”
Reid bizarrely went on to compare Trump to organized crime, likening the president to a mob boss.
“Organized crime is a business,” Reid said, “and they are really good with what they do. But they are better off when things are predictable. In my opinion, they do not do well with chaos. And that’s what we have going with Trump.”
Reid, who is well known for his pointed attacks against political opponents, left the Senate in early 2017 and was replaced by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Reid admitted he still follows politics closely, praising the current leadership of the Democratic Party.
“I talk to Nancy often. I love Nancy Pelosi,” he said of the Democratic House leader. “We did so many good things, and we still talk about that.”
Reid has attacked Trump since the day he announced his presidential campaign, dismissing him as a “spoiled brat,” a “con man,” a “human leech,” and “a big, fat guy” who “didn’t win many fights.”
Trump fired back during the presidential campaign: “I think he should go back and start working out again with his rubber workout pieces,” he told The Washington Post in September 2016.
Reid sustained multiple injuries during his last year in the Senate, claiming he had fallen in the bathroom while using an excercise band.
Many speculated that it was a cover-up story for something more nefarious.
Reid, who is fighting pancreatic cancer, said he does not regret his vile comments about the president: “I was always willing to do things that others were not willing to do,” he told The Times.
