Sam Harris, who previously justified “any attempt” to keep former President Donald Trump out of the Oval Office, including illegal election meddling, defended Osama Bin Laden on his podcast Aug. 25.

Harris claimed in August that Hunter Biden’s laptop did “not stack up” to Trump University and that any “left-wing conspiracy” to keep the presidency from Trump was “warranted.”

“Hunter Biden literally could have had the corpses of children in his basement, I would not have cared,” he said. “There’s nothing. It’s Hunter Biden, it’s not Joe Biden. Whatever the scope of Joe Biden’s corruption is … it is infinitesimal compared to the corruption we know Trump is involved in. It’s like a firefly to the sun.”

Harris’s more recent comments were an attempt to clarify the previous statements about Trump. During the segment, Harris argued that “Donald Trump is a worse person than Osama Bin Laden.” (RELATED: REPORT: Documents From Osama Bin Laden Indicate He Never Expected America To Go To War After 9/11)

“Bin Laden was a more or less normal human being psychologically. He was just living in the grip of a dangerous and idiotic worldview,” Harris said. “But within the framework of his odious beliefs, he demonstrated many virtues.”

Harris went on to claim that Bin Laden was capable of “real self-sacrifice” and was “personally quite courageous.”

“I don’t claim to know that much about him, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he was generally a person of real integrity and generosity and compassion in his dealings with his fellow Muslims,” Harris explained. “None of these things can be said about Donald Trump.”

Bin Laden’s terrorist organization al-Qaida killed eight times more Muslims than non-Muslims in the period between 2004 and 2008, according to a 2009 report by the Combatting Terrorism Center at West Point.

Bin Laden and al-Qaida have claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, which killed 2,996 people.
