If all else fails, plead insanity, right? That’s what the Democrats are doing. They cannot find a way to take down Trump to their liking and are now scraping the bottom of the barrel and going the insanity route.
You really can’t make this stuff up. According to The Hill “House Democrats plan to hold an event intended to highlight what they say is President Trump’s deteriorating mental health.”
Sounds like a fun party. And the guest of honor?
Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist who edited the best-selling book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President. “Wow, where can we get a signed copy? Sounds thrilling and totally scientific without a hint of bias.
“We are planning to do something where she can make a presentation to other members so that they’ll be aware of what she’s been working on,” said House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-KY). Yarmuth said the event, expected to take place in July, is important so that other “members of Congress and the public understand the position of Lee and the other psychologists in the book, which argues that Trump’s mental health has deteriorated to the point where it poses a threat to the country.”
The grey matter deterioration Yarmuth is referring to, I believe, are what he and his party often refer to as Conservative policies. They realize they can’t come right out and say “your policies are crazy” so instead they are hiding under bias “medical” professionals who are willing to say Trump himself is crazy.
The Hill points out that the position is “controversial because none of the psychiatrists have treated the president and the American Psychiatric Association (APA) prohibits members from speculating about the mental state of public figures.” Let’s recap: Democrats are using medical professionals, who have never medically assessed nor treated the president, and are breaking policy set forth by their own profession’s guidelines, to give Congress a lesson.
Sounds like a smart plan.
But then again, what more do we expect from desperate policymakers who can’t ruin the country without a fight. We hope they have fun at their “event” and maybe even get to enjoy a slice of a decapitated Trump head cake baked by Kathy Griffin.
