This year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner called Trump a ‘moron’ — and isn’t taking it back

Published

on

Beatrice Fihn, the executive director an anti-nuclear weapons group that just won the Nobel Peace Prize, shares at least one thing in common with members of President Donald Trump’s administration — she, too, thinks the president is a “moron.”

As Slate pointed out, Fihn, who heads the International Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons, tweeted earlier this week that “Donald Trump is a moron.”

When jokingly asked by a fellow Twitter user if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who made headlines this week for calling the president the same thing, had hacked her account, Fihn responded in kind.

“I guess it’s the first time I wholeheartedly support a statement by him!” she quipped.

As Slate noted, it’s unlikely that recent Nobel prize laureates like Malala Yousafzai, former President Barack Obama and Henry Kissinger, would disagree.

Check out Fihn’s tweets below.

Published

On Wednesday, as the House wrapped up another day of bombshell impeachment testimony from multiple foreign service officers, former GOP strategist and Never Trump conservative Rick Wilson mocked President Donald Trump and his Republican allies, pointing out that all of their major talking points to defend the president's conduct in Ukraine have been "obliterated":
