An insane guest on CNN absurdly claimed that President Trump killed more people than the 20th century’s most notorious homicidal dictators.
Psychiatrist Allen Francis told CNN host Brian Stelter that Trump is responsible for more deaths than the millions slaughtered by Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.
“Trump is as destructive of person in this century as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were in the last century,” Francis said on – ironically – “Reliable Sources” Sunday. “He may be responsible for many more millions of deaths than they were.”

Stelter didn’t attempt to pushback on the blatantly absurd comment that Trump killed over 100 million people, resulting in fierce backlash online.
In attempt to justify his failure to call out the lunatic psychiatrist’s remarks, Stelter instead took to Twitter to blame “tech difficulties,” and was promptly ratioed.
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.

But Stelter’s excuse was easily debunked, as The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra pointed out that CNN’s official “Reliable Sources” Twitter account posted the exact segment in question, including Francis’ deplorable comments in full.
“Further proof that Brian Stelter is a liar: His show tweeted out the exact portion of the segment where the psychiatrist made the remarks,” Saavedra tweeted.
“If CNN had a problem with this segment they would *not* have promoted it on Twitter.”

This is just the latest example that CNN is nothing more than a propaganda network hell-bent on pushing any lie they can to hurt Trump, even if it destroys their own credibility in the process.
