College Professor Thinks Trump Has Killed Millions of People and Is Worse Than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao
It seems like CNN hits new lows every week, in fact, almost every day now.
This time CNN brought on Duke University psychiatry professor Allen Frances to bash Trump. Well, it turns out that he's a little crazier than what they were expecting...or maybe he's just a crazy as they were expecting.
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."
"I’ve known thousands of patients, almost all of them have been well-behaved, well-mannered good people. Trump is none of these."
"Lumping the mentally ill with Trump is a terrible insult to the mentally ill and they have enough problems. Calling Trump crazy hides the fact that we’re crazy, for having elected him and even crazier for allowing his crazy policies to persist."

A lot of backlash actually came upon Brian Stelter after the interview for him not stepping in sooner to challenge the idiotic remarks from the professor.
This is fine, Brian Stelter. Keep putting insane guests like this man on to trash the President. You're actually creating more voters for President Trump. I know many people who are voting for him in 2020 simply because of how the media treats him. 🤷🏼♀️
Actually, making excuses for false claims of @realDonaldTrump being guilty of genocide is your fault. You promote provocateurs to try to resuscitate your plummeting ratings. Sad and pathetic!
We are not idiots Brian... Maybe your liberal friends will accept your lame ass excuses, but there are 64 million Americans and now, even more, that don’t believe your excuses. You are an activist posing as a “journalist”. You are not “truth to power”, you are a mouthpiece.
I’m starting to think you actually WANT Trump to get re-elected. Why else bring such an unhinged loon onto your show. I refuse to believe you don’t do some vetting of your guests.
He acknowledged and responded on Twitter,
"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."
