Author Noam Chomsky, now 91, is old enough to remember a long list of U.S. presidents, from Harry Truman in the 1940s to Ronald Reagan in the 1980s to Barack Obama in the late 2000s and early 2010s. And during an interview on “The Michael Brooks Show,” Chomsky laid out some reasons why Donald Trump is, hands down, the worst he has seen so far.

“Trump is the worst criminal in history, undeniably,” Chomsky told Brooks. “There has never been a figure in political history who was so passionately dedicated to destroying the projects for organized human life on Earth in the near future. That is not an exaggeration.”

Trump, Chomsky stressed, has been disastrous in numerous respects — from his response to the coronavirus pandemic to his climate change denial and abysmal environmental policies.

Flashback: Noam Chomsky: GOP election victory amounts to ‘death knell for the human species’

UPDATE: Chomsky now attempts to retract his ‘death knell’ comment! ‘If I said the [GOP] elections are a death knell, I went too far. But I think it’s fair to say that they do threaten that outcome’ – Climate Depot Response to Chomsky: ‘If’ you said it? You clearly did say it on video. You now admit you ‘went too far?’ But we all thought you were a brilliant ‘linguist’! How could you say what you don’t mean? Aren’t you at least supposed to be the expert at using language? Note: Chomsky is reading and responding to emails([email protected])
