Psychiatrist Allen Frances guest starred on CNN for a segment of "Reliable Sources" with host Brian Stelter. The fact that CNN has a segment labeled "Reliable Sources" is hilariously deceiving in itself.
Frances stated that President Donald Trump is responsible for more deaths than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao combined. The Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong in this one, folks!
How he could even compare Trump to dictators who killed MILLIONS is beyond fathomable to me.

"The second issue is that calling Trump crazy hides the fact that we’re crazy for having elected him and even crazier for allowing his crazy policies to persist." Frances said, "Trump is as destructive a person in this century as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were in the last century. He may be responsible for many more million deaths than they were. He needs to be contained but he needs to be contained by attacking his policies, not his person."
"It’s crazy for us to be destroying the climate our children will live in. It’s crazy to be giving tax cuts to the rich that will add trillions of dollars to the debt our children will have to pay." He continued, "It’s crazy to be destroying our democracy by claiming that the press and the courts of the enemy of the people. We have to face these policies not Trump’s person."
CNN is single-handedly creating more Trump voters by airing crap like this!
I agree that I should have interrupted after that line. I wish I had heard him say it, but I was distracted by tech difficulties (that's why the show open didn't look the way it normally does, I had two computers at the table, etc). Not hearing the comment is my fault.

When someone asked why Frances was allowed to continue on with such garbage, Stelter replied, "I agree that I should have interrupted after that line. I wish I had heard him say it, but I was distracted by tech difficulties (that's why the show open didn't look the way it normally does, I had two computers at the table, etc).

Rightttt, technical difficulties. Okay.
