Norman Lear is 93 years old, which means he has no time to beat around the bush. Speaking to The Daily Beast, Lear had this to say about The Donald and his supporters:
Norman Lear has seen a lot of presidents in his 93 years. He was born during the Warren G. Harding Administration and despite his lifelong liberal views has expressed strong admiration for Dwight D. Eisenhower. And while he has had plenty of negative things to say about George W. Bush and the “long history of fools we’ve had running this country,” Lear thinks electing Donald Trump would represent a new low in American democracy.
“Donald Trump is a fool and an asshole,” Lear told The Daily Beast this week. “I don’t think people are backing him as much as he has become the middle finger of their right hand.”
