Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader agrees with Donald Trump and criticized the modern college culture calling it 'absurd' that students get offended easily.
In an interview with Pacific Standard, Nader, 82, said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has a point about the college culture.
He agreed that it is 'absurd,' because the 'so-called trigger-warnings' are making people too sensitive.
'You repress people, you engage in anger, and what you do is turn people into skins that are blistered by moonbeams,' he said.
'Young men now are far too sensitive because they've never been in a draft.
'They've never had a sergeant say, 'Hit the ground and do 50 push-ups and I don't care if there's mud there.'
He added that the billionaire businessman 'is extremely clever with the use of language.'
'Short sentences, no prepositional phrases, immediately understood,' Nader said in reference to Trump.
'And he is a father figure. 'Don't worry, I'll give you the jobs, take care of the terrorists.' And when he stumbles, he reverses.
'He said he didn't want higher wages, and then he reversed himself within a week, said: 'Look, I can change my mind. Don't worry. The wall. Who's going to pay for it? Mexico. I heard they might not pay for it. You know what? The wall just got 10 feet higher.' There's a certain skill in that.'
Nader also said that Trump is a 'hybrid' of a candidate. 'I call him a Rep-Dem. He's got Social Security, Medicare, he's probably got a hidden single-payer guy, because he's been around Canada, Western Europe, understands how it works, talks to business people, they don't have to pay premiums, all of that,' Nader said.

Nadar said a third party can be created if a person is a billionaire, 'because there's a huge slice of the electorate that doesn't like either party.
'A lot of them don't vote, or they vote least-worst. But they like someone who can't be bought. Sanders can't be bought,' Nadar, who had appeared as third-party candidate for president with the Green Party, explained.
'He's proven he doesn't have to go to Park Avenue for fat-cat fundraisers—and that's a great breakthrough, by the way.
'The Democrats who said for decades, 'We believe in campaign finance reform, but we're not going to unilaterally disarm'— well, he did unilaterally disarm.
'And then he was equipped with the 27-buck average people. So what Trump has done, brilliantly, is to say: 'I don't need these fat cats on Wall Street. I'm spending my own money.' And that has huge resonance.'
In the same interview, Nadar also criticized the Black Lives Matter movement and said that it's 'so sensitive to injustice' and that it won't last long because it isn't organized enough.
