Famed sportscaster Bob Costas this weekend slammed President Biden, former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

Trump “is by far the most disgraceful figure in modern presidential history” and he “has a bubbling cauldron of loathsome traits,” Costas, who was legendary as an NBC sports broadcaster, said Saturday on CNN’s “Smerconish” show.

“You have to be in the throes of some sort of toxic delusion 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. But his supporters are locked in on that,” he also said.

Costas said Biden’s legacy is “likely to be that of a man whose hubris prevented him from seizing the moment in an appropriate way.”

He also said “at best” Biden can “squeak by Trump and that if he indeed wins “it’s very likely that he cannot complete his second term, he’d be 86 at the end of it.”
