American Psychiatric Association Cautions Members Against Making Diagnosis Without Exam

The American Psychiatric Association is throwing caution into the wind of their members who want to diagnose President Trump as mentally ill and for a good reason.

I have done a couple of opinion pieces relating to the “Goldwater Rule,” and how the former Presidential candidate won a lawsuit against a magazine that questioned his mental stability during his campaign run. After that case, this rule was put in place to guard against this type of behavior.

Democrats are trying to push all these negative narratives before the 2018 Midterms

“We at the APA call for an end to psychiatrists providing professional opinions in the media about public figures whom they have not examined, whether it be on cable news appearances, books, or in social media,” the group wrote. “Arm-chair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical.”

The rebuke came Tuesday as politicians and members of the media were ratcheting up their rhetoric about Trump’s mental health. Earlier in the day, Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Brendan Boyle unveiled legislation that would require presidential candidates to have a medical exam and publicly disclose the results before the general election. Joe Scarborough also has said on his MSNBC program “Morning Joe” that Trump has dementia, and more than a dozen lawmakers have discussed Trump with a Yale University psychiatrist who said that Trump was “going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.” The psychiatrist, Dr. Brandy Lee, who has not examined Trump, edited The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, which includes testimonials from 27 psychiatrists and mental health experts.

Yale Professor Back Pedals On Her Diagnosis Of Trump’s Mental State

The women in the article (Yale Professor Back Pedals On Her Diagnosis of Trump’s Mental State), Bandy Lee, as of this date/time stamp of this post, was NOT licensed in Connecticut and therefore was acting OUTSIDE of the scope of her authority. In other words, she lied and she will likely not be reinstated for her gross violations of professional standards.

Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. That’s why we exist. Donate $10 today and help us continue to fight!

Leftist crazies are calling Trump nuts. How about we see the results of Hillary Clinton’s psychiatric exam. Or maybe Maxine Waters? Lord only knows what Nancy Pelosi’s will say. Or all the other raving lunatics of the loud-mouthed left.
