Democrats want to bring a panel of psychiatrists to Washington to suggest that President Donald Trump is mentally unfit to be president.
Dr. Bandy Lee, a persistent critic of the president who believes Trump’s state of mental health makes him unfit for office, is slated to lead the team of psychiatrists. Lee teaches at the Yale School of Medicine and is the editor of the book, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.”
Despite Lee’s insistence that the president may be crazy, she has never spoken to Trump, let alone provided any psychiatric evaluation. As the Examiner notes, that lack of personal contact is seen as a show stopper for many in the psychiatric profession who believe it is impossible to make any kind of mental health assessment based on remote observation.
But Lee, who has said she wants to “contain” Trump for analysis, notes she isn’t issuing a formal diagnosis, just acknowledging that there is a problem.
Oh, there’s a problem right enough…with your fucking “professional” ethics. If any. More:
The position is controversial because psychiatric associations urge members never to diagnose patients they haven’t personally evaluated, saying it undermines the scientific rigor of the profession.
The “scientific rigor” of a pseudo-scientific “profession.” Tell me, “Doctor,” how is it that your little clatch of partisan con artists—pretenders to a scientific discipline refuted by the scientific method itself, unjustified by the reality of what you people actually do: pimping expensive, perpetual “treatment” which consists mainly of pointless conversation, healing no one—feel themselves qualified to pass judgment on the mental health of a quite successful President whom NOT ONE OF YOU FUCKING CHARLATANS HAS EVER EVEN MET?
Psychiatry is the bunk. With vanishingly few exceptions, shrinks are simple crooks preying on poor neurotics who are unaware of the grift lurking behind a thin scrim of “medical science.” ENORMOUS balls on these particular Trump-deranged whackos, though, you gotta give ’em that much. That they would be brazen enough to pronounce in any way, shape, or form on a man obviously far more mentally well-adjusted than they’ll ever be takes the prize for sheer, arrogant brass.
Via Ace, who says:
I propose assembling a team of neurologists to discuss whether Nancy Pelosi’s slurred speech and difficulty remembering basic words is evidence of Alzheimer’s.
And then I’d like to discuss whether Hillary Clinton has some kind of brain defect, and if she’s an alcoholic.
Hope you ain’t holding your breath, buddy, ’cause you ain’t ever gonna see any such thing. Which kinda gives the game away all by itself.
