In an absolutely batcrap crazy segment on Brian Stelter’s “Reliably Stupid Sources,” this guy claimed that Trump will be responsible for more deaths than Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Mao Zedung!
Psychiatrist Allen Frances: “Trump is as destructive of 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”— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) August 25, 2019
CNN's Brian Stelter gave 0 pushback

That is just bizarre. And Stelter said nothing. He just let him blab on and on.
Trump isn't crazy.— Allen Frances (@AllenFrancesMD) August 25, 2019
But we are for letting him destroy the world we are handing on to our kids. https://t.co/v8uNJG3gju
What’s worse, he was arguing against psychiatrists diagnosing Trump as insane, but later in the interview, he said it would be ok to LIE about that just to get Trump out! And Stelter said nothing then either! Incredible.
Here he is making excuses for the screw up:
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.

Funny how those technical difficulties NEVER help a Republican, huh? Real funny.
