Ex-NBC Broadcaster Bob Costas Slams Trump, Calls Him “Most Disgraceful Figure In Modern Presidential History”

Former NBC Sports broadcaster Bob Costas made scathing remarks about former President Trump and President Biden during a recent appearance on CNN’s “Smerconish,” labeling Trump as “Loathsome”, a “Monster” and a “disgraceful” figure and criticizing Biden’s decision to run for re-election.

Costas asserted that only those entrenched in a “toxic delusion” would believe Trump was fit for office, describing him as a “cauldron of loathsome traits.”

He said, “You have to be in the throes of some sort of toxic delusion and in a toxic cult to believe that Donald Trump has ever been, in any sense, emotionally, psychologically, intellectually, or ethically fit to be President of the United States,” he said, adding, “But his supporters are locked in on that.”

Turning his attention to Biden, Costas criticized the president for seeking re-election, suggesting it could lead to further political turmoil and uncertainty.

Hubris and Consequences

Costas argued that Biden’s decision to run again displayed “hubris” and could risk prolonging the nation’s political chaos under Trump’s influence.

He said, “He had a chance to be seen as a statesman and a patriot. Now his legacy is likely to be that of a man whose hubris prevented him from seizing the moment in an appropriate way, and at best, he can squeak by Trump – that’s at best.”

Potential Outcomes
