Colonel Ralph Peters: Trump Supporters Are "Radicals" And "Couch Potato Anarchists"


Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a former Fox News military analyst who left after accusing the network of "assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law" in collaboration with President Trump, talks to CNN's Brian Stelter about his views on President Trump's impact on the country.

"What is the most dreadful part about it, for you?" Stelter asked.

"The most dreadful part is that we have a president who does not respect our system of government," Peters said. He continued to say his former employee FOX News were "prostitutes," "amoral," and "opportunistic... People that only listen to Fox have an utterly skewed view of reality."

PETERS: The people supporting Trump are radicals, these couch-potato anarchists. They’re people that don’t have a program to make America great again. And by the way, America’s great right now. Rather, they’re destructive. They want to tear things down. They want vengeance. And Trump is brilliant at that. He’s done what autocrats and charlatans and false messiahs throughout history have done. He’s told his core supporters, “You are not to blame. You are not to blame for the mistakes you’ve made. You are not to blame for your failures. It’s them. It’s minorities; it’s immigrants; it’s fake news.”
