By Breitbart. Democrats are planning a Capitol Hill event in hopes of reigniting questions and concerns about President Trump’s mental health.
Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist Dr. Bandy Lee will reportedly head up the event, which is expected to happen “within the next couple of weeks.”
Lee is an author and editor of the book The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump and is among those who believe that psychiatrists have a “duty” to warn the general public of what they believe is Trump’s deteriorating mental state.
Their assessment, however, is far from the standards of the medical community and could be viewed as a professional faux pas. Some experts say it is simply impossible and unethical to diagnose an individual with a mental illness without a one-on-one examination.
Lee has not examined the president but does not believe it is necessary. She says one does not need to be a mental health professional to “recognize the seriousness of the current presidency.”
