Democrats To Host Event With Psychiatrists Warning About Trump’s Mental Health
Congressional Democrats will be hosting a town hall-style event in which psychiatrists will warn the nation of the supposed deterioration of the President’s mental health.
The event, confirmed to be in the planning stages by Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-KY), will be held on Capitol Hill sometime in July if all goes according to plan.
Democrats will call upon Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University psychology professor who has been criticized by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) for using “arm-chair psychiatry” to evaluate the President in the past.
“The president’s condition has been visibly deteriorating to the point where there’s a lot of talk right now about his mental state beyond mental health professionals,” Lee claimed. “It no longer takes a mental health professional to recognize the seriousness of the current presidency.”

The Washington Examiner reports that Lee will present a condensed video featuring 13 “experts” who are willing to declare the President unfit for office. Those “experts” include individuals from such fields as mental health, but also philosophy, history, and … journalism?
Yarmuth explained that Democrats are hosting the event because “the president is manifesting dangerous behavior and the American people need to be alert to it.”
Any psychiatrist worthy of their license to practice should immediately start evaluating any Democrats holding this event. They’re the ones with the glaring mental challenges.
Lee Needs Her Own Evaluation
Dr. Lee has been a longtime disgrace to her profession.
She met with lawmakers last year to discuss Trump’s mental state, saying that his use of Twitter – yes, his tweets – are a sign “that the president was unraveling.”
“We feel that the rush of tweeting is an indication of his falling apart under stress,” Lee claimed without evidence. “Trump is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency.”
She went so far as to recommend that the President be forced to submit to an evaluation.

Why would an evaluation by Democrat-loving psychiatrists be important? Because it is against every ethical guideline in the profession to publicly declare an individual to be suffering from mental issues when they’ve never actually been spoken to or diagnosed.
The APA has tried to distance themselves from Lee, issuing a statement which read: “Arm-chair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical.”
But then, ‘unacceptable and unethical’ is what the radical left is all about.
The Democrats are no doubt going to use this event as a backdrop for their desire to invoke the 25th Amendment against President Trump and have him removed from office.
The 25th Amendment is a constitutional provision allowing for the removal of the President should he be deemed medically, or as Democrats are hoping, mentally unfit.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren previously declared that “If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment.”
This is the same woman who is so mentally disturbed that she faked being a Native American for decades.
Even top FBI officials discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
It’s not going to happen, but that won’t stop the unhinged left from openly dreaming about it.
