Calling President Donald Trump more "amoral" than "immoral," former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ripped the commander in chief for being the worst president in history.

"I think he is without question the worst president we've ever had," Reid told The New York Times Magazine. "We've had some bad ones, and there's not even a close second to him.

"He'll lie. He'll cheat. You can't reason with him."

Reid, the former Senate Democratic leader during the Obama administration, made the remarks in a lengthy interview with the Times – his first after a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

"As soon as you discover you have something on your pancreas, you're dead," Reid told the Times magazine.

Despite the ominous diagnosis with time running out at age 79, Reid has not given up his fight against cancer, or his frequent political nemesis, Trump.

"Trump is an interesting person," Reid told the Times. "He is not immoral but is amoral. Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn't make a difference. No conscience."

Reid refused to even give President Trump "credit" for being pessimistic, instead calling him "oblivious" to reality.

"I disagree that Trump is a pessimist," Reid told the Times. "I think he's a person who is oblivious to the real world."

As for his time as Senate leader, Reid showed no regret for ending the filibuster on judicial nominees during the Obama administration, despite the fact it is how President Trump has managed to approve so many conservative justices during his first two years.

"They can say what they want," Reid told the Times of his critics. "We had over 100 judges that we couldn't get approved, so I had no choice. Either Obama's presidency would be a joke or Obama's presidency would be one of fruition."
