Throwing their opponents in “psychiatric hospitals” is what the Soviets did…
Hell hath no fury like a Democrat who thinks they’re right. By their own words and actions, they’ve proved themselves to be overly-emotional, vindictive, and probably worse of all, their obstinacy in error.
No, our ever-weepy political opposition has the act of hyper-hysterics down to a science.
Case in point would be a report from the reliably far-left Vox.com as the lay out the (achem) “proof” that President Trump needs to be removed from the Oval Office under the auspices of the XXV Amendment.
In what’s suppose to be real news, Vox.com writer Eliza Barclay recently had a nice game of underhand softball catch, err… I mean interviewed Dr Bandy X. Lee, an assistant professor in forensic psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine.
Despite Dr Lee failing to ever examine President Trump, she’s not only edited a book entitled The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President ($13.99 on Amazon), the good doctor has also “briefed a dozen members of Congress — Democrats and one Republican — on the president’s mental state.”
However, Dr Lee’s literary actions have resulted in some blow-back from her fellow physicians;
These efforts have not been welcomed by all of Lee’s colleagues in psychiatry — some say her warnings are unethical and break the Goldwater Rule, the American Psychiatric Association’s stipulation that its members never publicly discuss the mental health of a public figure. One esteemed fellow psychiatrist accused her in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine of having “misguided and dangerous” morality.
Yet Lee’s overt and arrogant dismissal of the American Psychiatric Association’s Goldwater Rule being quite possibly the least of her transgressions against both medical professionalism and political objectivism, her medical proof seems to this layman as very much in the Lacking Department.
Cited by Barclay as examples of Dr Lee’s alleged psychiatric evidence of Trump being off the deep-end;
- “[H]is retweeting some violent anti-Muslim videos showed a concerning attraction to violence.”
In actuality, the “anti-Muslim” videos Trump retweeted were actually two videos of Muslim violence, as well as a singular video of Muslim desecration and destruction of a Christian artifact.
- “And then there were the belligerent nuclear threats this week.”
Well, yeah. That’s understandable, especially in the knowledge that the last quarter century of presidents have done nothing in regards to the North Korean nuclear except to pass the buck to whatever unfortunate bastard gets elected long after they themselves have comfortably retired.
- “[P]rovoking our allies and alienating them”
Does “provoking” and “alienating” our allies have anything to do with telling our NATO “allies” to get off their collective dead-asses and contribute the measly 2 percent of their GDP like they previously promised to?
- “[N]ot to mention poke a beehive in the Middle East by declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”
Hold on. By recognizing the obvious, that makes Trump mentally deranged and incapable of completing his legally elected term of office? Seriously?
I can’t help but wonder if the good doctor might argue against all dogs being mammals, or the sun rises in the east, or if 2+2=4.
Other than being as medical doctor, Lee also holds an MDiv (Master of Divinity) degree. In light of her so-called evidence of Trump’s mental illness, maybe she should take a bit of Christ’s advice: “Physician, heal thyself.”
