The response is rational.....You are advocating psychiatrists commenting on the mental stability of another person without actual hands-on psychoanalysis. So I am just curious to see how you would like if it was done to you...

Obviously you don't like it....

He's not the President. When HE has a military officer following HIM around 24/7 with the launch codes to America's nuclear arsenal I'll worry about HIS mental/emotional stability. *shrug*

Surprise...can't figure out Donald Trump, the "new comer" to both politics and DC. He actually said what he would do, for America, and it trying to do those things. A very new approach to running for office.

Bet there is not one of the bash Trump crowd that would not like to have his "mental" abilities that made him so wealthy and able to get the votes to be the President.

San Francisco liberals mental stability is making Trump look like a very rational person right now with the not guilty verdict of an illegal murdering Kate Steinke.

It wasn't actually, as I pointed out....but the point is really that you aren't rational....so how would you know? You lack the mental capacity to accurately judge your own irrational bullshit.

Nope! Wrong again, Gormless.

In posts #4 & 6, I was pointing out that a rather large number of mental health professionals of several different sorts can clearly see the TrumpsterFire's glaring mental problems and disorders....and they have come forward with their concerns because of their fear for the safety of our country and the world with a mentally disturbed lunatic in the White House. And I was also pointing out the fact that there is some difference of opinion in the mental health community over the ethics of such commenting, with some professional groups leaving the decision to individual therapists.

Which is exactly why your response to the info about the debate in mental health circles over the issue of commenting on the mental stability of the President is so very irrational. None of the experts who have publicly commented on T'Rump's many mental problems would have done that without an extensive in-person examination if he wasn't the President. Moreover, they ARE actual experts in this field and you definitely are not. So your response was both stupid and irrelevant to the actual issue at hand.

Yeah.....TDS.....TRump Derangement Symptoms....publicly displayed daily.....which are exactly what all these mental health professionals are looking at when they comment on his obvious insanity, senility and utter derangement.

From the OP:

Quote:
-Now, let me put to rest the concerns of Sen. Al Franken and political commentators John Oliver and Andrew Sullivan and anyone else who publicly or privately has questioned the President’s sanity: Donald Trump is stone cold sane.
That's a comment on Trump's mental stability. And how did the author arrive at that conclusion?

Quote:

Let me issue the standard disclaimer of psychiatrists who discuss the mental health of public figures: I have not personally examined President Trump.
He pulled it out of his ass, right Jim?

An opinion this whole thread was started around....

And my point was that it is an opinion about the TrumpsterFire's sanity that is not shared by many other psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals, who are speaking out now because of the extreme danger to America and the whole world from having a flaming nutjob like Trumpolini in charge.....as we are all seeing every day.

Opinions like these.....
