The psychiatrist who briefed Congress on Trump’s mental state: this is “an emergency”

The case for evaluating the president’s mental capacity — by force if necessary.

    And of course anyone who isn’t a leftist is crazy. This is exactly what the Soviets did. If you weren’t a good communist you were crazy and needed to be in a mental hospital, or gulag.

      In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate;

      and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” — Theodore Dalrymple

      • A MD making a diagnosis of a patient she has never seen is a QUACK.

        • Halal Bacon

          Her diagnosis means nothing. It’s just like an MD in this scenario:

          Woman: Doctor, my son is feeling sick and throwing up.
          MD: He has the flu.

    And yet it is the lefties who are running around like headless chickens.

    The Russia probe isn’t going anywhere, so the media and Democratic Party have sunk to the bottom level of cesspool politics by claiming Trump is bat shit crazy.

    • Trump is bat shit crazy?

      For a crazy guy he sure has the progressives in a tizzy.

  • We all have to take her very seriously because she’s at Yale. Don’t laugh at her.

      And smashing cellphones with hammers is perfectly normal behaviour in their world.

    LA County psycologist thinks he’s Jesus because he filled a gift wrapped box of poop and placed it on a lawmakers porch is still in the county payroll. Makes me wonder about the quality of care available to mental health patients and who is monitoring the staff? How many people need to traumatized before someone intervenes?

    brought to you by a whole fake profession that says beards go with dresses

  • moraywatson

    This woman has no special knowledge or training in American politics and yet she prefaces her entire argument on a presumption that Trump is reacting badly to the implementation of ‘special investigations’. Perhaps she should go and read all of the analyses at Conservative Treehouse https://theconservativetreehouse.com/ and then reconsider if Trump has any concern about the course that ‘special investigations’ are taking.

  • Barrington Minge

    Whatever Trump’s mental state may be, he clearly has a self-control problem. Anybody says anything vaguely anti-T and he goes off on one on Twitter or whereever. Perhaps he needs to learn a thing from Melania – it’s called dignified silence.

    • mobuyus

      That would not be the Trump we had installed though.

  • mobuyus

    Forced rapid lobotomy’s for Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers would be helpful.

  • Tooth&Claw

    This psychiatrist needs to be blacklisted for diagnosing a patient without ever having interacted with him on a one to one level. It’s ethically suspect.

      It’s called a breach of the Goldwater Rule. Politicized gaslighting by proxy, another assault on the American public’s psyche. Disgusting isn’t it?

  • Halal Bacon

    If the Democrats succeed in using this mentally unstable crap to get rid of Trump, they set the precedent that claiming the president is mentally unstable for office is an acceptable way to get rid of a president the other side doesn’t like. When a future Republican congress decides to use the mentally unstable excuse to get rid of a Democrat president they don’t like.

    This crap also lends credibility to the notion that liberals are communists. In the Soviet era, the Soviet government often put dissidents in mental hospitals.

  • Halal Bacon

    For the Democrats to pull this off, they must convince the vice president and a majority the president’s cabinet to go along with them, or enact a law that designates some other body to decide whether or not to remove the president. A majority of that other body would have to go along with them. If they did get rid of Trump, all that would happen is making Pence president.

    If they try this, they better do it now. If less than half of Trump’s term has passed when Trump is removed, it counts as one term for Pence, so he could only be elected president once. If less than half of Trump’s term remains when he’s removed, it would not count as one of Pence’s terms, allowing him to be elected twice. If that happens, Pence could be president for 10 years minus one day – remainder of Trump’s term plus two of his own.

    If the Democrats did pull it off, I think it would be funny as hell if Pence ended up getting elected twice.

    I love Trump
    He’s smarter than most of the MDs psychologists and the more than 80 percent of
    Psychiatrists who are really fucking crazy
    Thank gawd they can medicate themselves
    Professors in these fields are the last west levels, the ones who are too
    Dumb to make it in private practice
    Although there are a small percentage who do choose to instruct parttime
    At the university hospitals out of a sense of professional ethics
    I hope he keeps on tweeting and shaking up all the low level mentality morons
    Give em what they deserve
    Loads of unpredictable shit
    Keep them all frothing and insecure
    While trump supporters are smiling all the way to the banks

  • WalterBannon

    I seem to recall the lefty media being dismissive of psychiatrists with political axes remotely diagnosing Obama with various sociopath and narcissistic personality disorders but now they are good with the same malpractice applied to Trump.

    Hmmm.

    Apparently she was trained in former USSR to put dissidents in mental institutions.
