The far-left has always compared former President Donald Trump to “Adolf Hitler” and his proud American supporters as “nazis.” Even now mass media giants like CNN promote these stereotypes after CNN’s very own Jim Acosta accused Donald trump for allegedly trying to initiate an “administrative coup, if not a bloody coup” and “acting like an Adolf Hitler.”
“I think, arguably, Donald Trump committed crimes on the way to January 6th,” Acosta told host Chris Cuomo. “Is anything going to be done about it? Why have we not had this conversation in this country?”
“I think it’s a critical question, Chris, whether or not the former president of the United States belongs in the slammer for what he did between the election and January 6th,” Acosta said.
Even though Cuomo later admitted, “Nothing ever happened to confirm these suspicions. And that’s I think one of the suggestions that this book is going to have to deal with.”
He still decided to make these accusations after saying, “Donald Trump was behaving like Adolf Hitler, who was potentially looking to overthrow the government.”
“The question becomes Chris, what do we do about this information?” Acosta asked.
Acosta’s fellow panelist, Michael Smerconish, tamped down the allegations, saying there is “much we still don’t know about the events of January 6.”

But Acosta, who has long viewed President Trump as his personal bête noire, said the poison pen book “aligns with a lot of what we were reporting around the time of the election and then the” D.C. riot.
“I talked to a source close to Trump, around the time of the [D.C. riot], who said that Trump had lost his mind, that he had lost it, and he was essentially trying everything by hook, or by crook, to overturn the election results at that time,” Acosta continued. “I will tell you, I’ve talked to two former senior White House officials, who have told me that Trump is quote, ‘insane.’ They have both used that word, ‘insane.’”
Attempting to force President Trump from office by citing concerns over his mental health became so common that the American Psychiatric Association issued a statement in 2018 saying that it’s “unethical” to diagnose someone as mentally ill without examining him or her personally. “We at the APA call for an end to psychiatrists providing professional opinions in the media about public figures whom they have not examined, whether it be on cable news appearances, books, or in social media. Armchair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical,” it said.
