This week's Versus segment with Alan Colmes featured a man suffering from the worst case of Obama Derangement Syndrome I've ever seen. David Horowitz recently phoned in an interview on perhaps the most factual segments on Alan simply let David speak and the crazy flowed like Manischewitz wine (which is a Bain Capital Corporation ICYMI). This man despises President Obama and none of his reasons are based in reality, and he was very happy to divulge his twisted worldview.

Alan brought up a few of Horowitz's most recent assertions:

'Obama hates America, he hates the Marines, he hates our country.'

Horowitz interrupted and added,

'he's also a traitor.'

He then said that the president is a Jew-Hater because of the Iran Deal.

'His legacy, by his own determination is to build up Iran and introduce it into the community of nations where it is worse than Nazi Germany!'

In the midst of the tirade that invoked Godwin's Law, Alan asked if he really was equating President Obama with Adolf Hitler and he concurred, just not in so many words.

What followed was a cavalcade of all the Fox News talking points regarding thugs, Ferguson, Baltimore, the 'Sanctuary City' of San Francisco and the systematic destruction of America. Trying to interject a modicum of sanity, Alan asks him to clarify his claims about U.S. Border Security. He shows him this fact based chart from The Economist and The Department of Homeland Security, a division of government started by President Bush. He of course labeled the information as counterfactual, with a liberal bias.

Next on the chopping block is the Democratic Party which is allegedly 'trying to destroy America.' If Alan permitted, this man would have gone on for hours denigrating the President and his Administration. Fortunately, time did not permit Horowitz from spewing more cuckoo-based drivel and Colmes succeeded in letting this man look as delusional as he really is, which doesn't normally happen on Fox News. How refreshing!
