Yale University Psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee has carved herself out a new career in the Trump Era, appointing herself the only courageous doctor willing to speak out – early and often – about President Donald Trump’s mental health.
Despite being public chastised by mental health professionals, who do not believe that politicians or other public figures should be “diagnosed” from a distance, Lee remains a fixture on MSNBC and other left-wing outlets for her willingness to tell viewers that the PRESIDENT IS, LIKE, TOTALLY CRAZY.
Salon is one of those outlets that cant get enough of Lee’s pronouncements, and they devoted more than 1500 words to an interview with the psychiatrist this week. Lee’s latest hare-brained idea is to have House Speaker Nancy Pelosi commit Trump, involuntarily, to a mental health examination.
“As a coworker, she has the right to have him submit to an involuntary evaluation, but she has not,” Lee told Salon. “Anyone can call 911 to report someone who seems dangerous, and family members are the most typical ones to do so. But so can coworkers, and even passersby on the street. The law dictates who can determine right to treatment, or civil commitment, and in all 50 U.S. states this includes a psychiatrist.
“The advantage of a coworker starting this process is that a court can mandate a mental capacity evaluation before the dangerous person returns to work,” Lee continued. “The committing physician is preferably the patient’s treater, but does not have to be. I am beginning to believe that a mental health hold, which we have tried to avoid, will become inevitable.”
Hmm, well if anyone can recommend this evaluation, perhaps it’s time for someone to have Bandy X. Lee examined by a psychiatrist. Because the idea of having Nancy Pelosi call 911 on the president is far crazier than anything we’ve ever heard Donald Trump say.
