When Donald Trump traveled to Latrobe, Pennsylvania, for his latest campaign event, he was visiting the hometown of famed children’s television host Fred Rogers.
Though the longtime “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” host did not express public political views during his life, his widow held nothing back in her recent remarks about the current occupant of the White House.
“I think he’s just a horrible person,” she said, predicting that she would “probably go into mourning” if Trump is re-elected in November.
“I can’t even imagine,” Rogers said. “I would feel so badly.”
As for her husband, who died in 2003, she explained that he “tried to stay pretty quiet about politics” because of the nature of his job.
“I’m alone now,” she added. “I don’t do a program for children.”
She went on to describe Trump as a man who “seldom tells the truth,” declaring him “pathologically ill” and “mentally ill.”
