A Yale psychiatrist tweeted then deleted a post on Monday in which she compared incumbent President Donald Trump‘s “competence” to that of Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Nazi Germany.

“Donald Trump is not an Adolf Hitler,” the deleted tweet from Dr. Bandy X. Lee read. “At least Hitler improved the daily life of his followers, had discipline, and required more of himself to gain the respect of his followers. Even with the same pathology, there are varying degrees of competence.”

Read the screenshot of the tweet captured before its deletion:

After deleting the controversial tweet, Dr. Lee posted a three-part thread where she attempts to explain her intent behind it but does not apologize for having posted it in the first place.

“Okay, I have taken it down, since it has upset so many people and was not provoking thought but the opposite,” she wrote. “Of note, my statement was about how little Donald Trump believes he needs to do to retain his followership, NOT to minimize Adolf Hitler’s atrocities.”

Continuing, she said: “If we cannot look at parallels in history and learn from them, we are truly poised to repeat it. I say so in heartbreak for the 11+ million lives lost, not in their minimization (currently, we are looking at 7 billion at risk, without exaggeration if we soberly thought of it).”

“I know most of you understood, and I appreciate it!” she added.

Dr. Lee is known for her public comments critical of the president’s mental health. Most notably, she co-authored a book in 2017 titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,” which is comprised of essays that allege President Trump has mental instability that make him dangerous. The publication of this book led to her and her colleagues receiving many death threats, she reported.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
