Psychiatric Association Warns Against Diagnosing Public Figures Like Trump....
Without Medical Exam

But that hasn’t stopped media and Democrats from giving credence to unethical psychiatrists that would push this.


Quote:The American Psychiatric Association urged members of its profession to uphold its decades-long principle that psychiatrists should never offer diagnostic opinions about people they haven’t personally examined, in light of President Trump’s impending medical exam and questions about his mental fitness.

“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.

Its sad that the libturd dipshits who have gone through some sort of medical school have to be told this. It literally should be something that gets their license revoked.

In this brave new world of overeducated idiots I expect a lot more of this will follow.

There is this odd phenomenon in my generation where a person takes a stance, or makes a statement, in this sort of political circumstance with no other real point than a shallow attempt to show of their self-perceived intelligence. Usually, this takes the form of spouting something they learned in Intro to ABC in college.
