Frances made the comment just after informing host Brian Stelter that he believes psychiatrists diagnosing Trump as mentally unfit for office amounts to undue politicization of medicine. Frances also said that, in his view, Trump’s insanity reflects the insanity of the people who elected him. “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...

Again, the litany, he lies every time he opens his mouth.” Walsh added that most Republicans on Capitol Hill “agree privately with everything I’m saying.” Walsh added that many Republicans also think that Trump will lose in 2020 and want him to lose in 2020.

Biden Confuses New Hampshire for Vermont

Former Vice President Joe Biden confused New Hampshire for Vermont during a Saturday campaign speech in Keene, New Hampshire. Biden made his error at the beginning of a press gaggle when a reporter asked him a question about his impressions of Keene, according to the New York Daily News.

Vermont holds primaries later in the cycle, so candidates don’t often visit the state. Earlier in the event, Biden had dismissed reporters’s questions about his age, saying, “if they’re concerned, don’t vote for me.” Biden has committed a series of gaffes while on the 2020 campaign trail. On Tuesday, he mistakenly said that Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated in “the late 70s” when the two were actually both killed in 1968. Earlier in August, Biden referred to former British Prime Minister...
