Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Peggy Noonan on Sunday took issue with President Donald Trump’s assertion that she writes about him like he’s a Neanderthal — defending the prehistoric cave dwellers as organized, with “sensibility” and “artistic complexity.”

In remarks on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” the former speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan scoffed at Trump’s Saturday night rant aimed at her Jan. 4 column that Trump complained described him “like I’m some kind of Neanderthal.”

“That was a column in which I tried to wrap my head around how many folks in business and folks on the ground in American politics, moderates, look at this White House,” she said. “I look at … his actions, and I think he is kind of crazy. They have to go, ‘it's kind of working’.. It causes a certain disquiet and confusion.”

“But I would like to note, he seems to think that in this column I called him a Neanderthal,” she added. “I did not. I would not have.”

“They had great cave paintings,” she said. “Those paintings spoke of a certain sensibility, a certain artistic complexity. Their tribes were organized. I would not [have called him] Neanderthal.”
