A virulently anti-Trump psychiatrist used his CNN airtime Sunday to claim President Trump's supporters are "crazy" and Trump will kill more people worldwide than "Hitler, Stalin and Mao."

Dr. Allen Frances, professor emeritus of psychiatry at Duke University, was booked on Brian Stelter's "Reliable Sources" program to discuss Trump's mental health.

Psychiatrists are forbidden by their profession from diagnosing political candidates without examining them, a rule that dates back to 1964 when liberal psychiatrists ran an ad falsely claiming they had diagnosed Republican nominee Barry Goldwater as mentally ill.

But that didn't stop Frances from using his professional status to call Trump supporters "crazy" and claim he is the most murderous leader in world history.

Frances began the segment calm, stable and claiming it is irresponsible to claim political differences are a mental disorder.

"Lumping Trump with the mentally ill is a terrible insult and they have enough problems and stigma it is," said Frances.

But then the wheels started to come off the wagon.

"Calling Trump crazy hides the fact that we're crazy for having elected him and even crazier for allowing his crazy policies to persist," said Frances.

He then went completely nuts.

"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," Frances claimed.

Hitler, Stalin and Mao are responsible for a combined 118 million deaths.

"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. It's crazy to be destroying our democracy by claiming that the press and the courts of the enemy of the people," he continued.

Then, after claiming just seconds earlier "lumping Trump with the mentally ill is a terrible insult," Frances claims Trump is mentally ill.

"Now it's absolutely impossible, you can bet the House, that the Congress, that Pence, that the cabinet will never ever remove Trump on the grounds of mental unfitness," Frances said. "That will never happen. Discussing the issue in psychological name-calling terms distracts us from getting out to vote."
