Former CIA Director Michael Hayden endorsed the assessment that Republicans today are the most “dangerous” political force in history.
Edward Luce, the U.S. national editor and columnist at the Financial Times, got the ball rolling Wednesday in a Twitter exchange that comes at a time when the Republican Party has largely rallied behind former President Donald Trump.
“I’ve covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world over my career. Have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans. Nothing close,” Luce said.
Hayden quote tweeted the observation, writing, “I agree. And I was the CIA Director.”
