The Anti-Trump movement has collected everyone from hedge funders to social justice warriors, united Bernie Sanders with Paul Singer and created common ground between Rosie O'Donnell and Jeb Bush. But now we can add another name to that list; Wall Street's most beloved math nerd; Jim Simons.

While visiting his homies at CNBC earlier today, the retired Renaissance Capital founder and active Democratic party donor dropped a pretty ill smackdown on the presumptive GOP nominee. Well, pretty ill if you're Jim Simons.

Hide your wife and cover your kids, cuz this sh!t is off the CHAIN.

"Now even if those two candidates had the same expected return — which I doubt — but even if Trump's was as good as Hillary's, his volatility is so enormous that his Sharpe ratio is terrible," Simons said.

Ooooooooooooooooooh! No he didn't!

That one stings. But Simons wasn't done with his verbal destruction of Trump. He had more...

"So as an investment, Trump is not a good investment, no matter what you might think of his potential return. He's just a wild man," he said.]

Savage, Simons, just savage.

"So as an investment, Trump is not a good investment, no matter what you might think of his potential return. He's just a wild man," he said.

"Sleazy"? CNBC is a family network, Jim.
