After he raped 30 women, killed a million people, tried a coup and sold Americas most closely held secrets to Putin. Who is really insane?

He knows what he's doing.

Criminal insanity refers to a mental illness or disease that makes it impossible for a defendant to know they were committing a crime or to understand that their actions are wrong. Link

"Insane," being a word, has a specific meaning. It has not been used in the field of mental health/ illness for many years, with but one exception. It is used in the court system, when forensic mental health experts determine if a defendant is fot to stand trial, and/or responsible for their actions. The defendant in no manner is "ciminally insane."

He is, rather, a sociopath, fully fit for trial, and 100% responsible for his crimes.
