In a stunning turn of events, President Donald Trump’s first month of presidential tenure has already got democrats convinced he’s mentally unfit to be president. Now a bill has been filed that requires the White House have a psychiatrist on site just in case Trump has a mental breakdown.
Representative Ted Lieu (D-California) has decided that Trump’s dangerous rhetoric and erratic behavior, including some very questionable phone calls with foreign leaders and weird press conferences, is reason enough to have a psychiatrist on stand-by.
Lieu said that he and fellow lawmakers are concerned for the mental well-being of the president and that he deserves to have a specialist available at all times. Since 1928 the White House is required to have a physician present, but not a psychiatrist because of the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Lieu believes that Trump’s mental health is especially troubling because he has an obvious “disconnection from the truth.” This is particularly dangerous if that individual just so happens to be the leader of the free world.
It is not normal for the president of the United States, within 24 hours, to write about death and destruction and fake news and evil. The most troubling aspect of this is it is very clear he has a disconnection from the truth…the very first press conference he had in this administration, they could have talked about jobs or health care. They talked about crowd size. And then lied about it. It’s one of the most bizzare events i’ve witnessed in politics.
Trump’s mental state has been increasingly called into question due to his obvious lies and late-night Twitter rants. The man is completely detached from reality, seemingly because he can’t take any criticism or negativity at all. It’s unbelievable that a man who rejects facts in favor of his own idealized fiction and fantasies is supposedly qualified to be president. Not only that, but someone who is mentally ill now has the world’s greatest military at his fingertips. We live in dark and dangerous times.
