With a stalled impeachment and mediocre Democratic presidential candidates with crackpot ideas, some are again pulling out the “Trump is crazy” card:

Yale Psychiatrist To Pelosi: A “Mental Health Hold” On Trump Is Inevitable
“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.”
She wants Pelosi to call 911 and report that Trump is unstable and essentially have him Baker Act’ed. :lol:

Poll Confirms What You Already Suspected: The Fake Impeachment Is Electoral Poison

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

The voters, it turns out, were not blind to the Democrat Party’s dirty tricks. According to a recent survey from Gallup, public support for impeachment has now dropped to 46 percent, down six percentage points since the start of the impeachment inquiry.

But that’s not the only bad news for the impeachment-crazed Democrats -- the same poll also found that 51 percent of Americans oppose impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office, a five percent increase during the same time period. Likewise, Gallup found that President Trump’s approval rating has increased by six percentage points since the launch of the impeachment probe in the fall and is now at 45 percent.


Meanwhile, a Mason-Dixon poll of Virginia samples 42% Democrats to only 30% Republicans. In Virginia!

That's obviously nonsense.

But here's the good news: even with that absurd skew (and note that pollsters do not adjust/reweight for party ID, because they say it actually fluctuates and there is no "correct" % for either party), Trump beats every single Democrat except Sundown Joe, and Sundown Joe only beats him by 4%.

Joe Biden the other day on a campaign swing through New Hampshire:

“Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well,” Biden told an audience in Derry, New Hampshire. “Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for God’s sake!”

The former vice president’s comments come only weeks after he pledged at the sixth Democrat primary debate to “sacrifice” economic growth and potentially “displace thousands or hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers” in the interests of a “greener economy.”

So says the guy who told people to people during a Dem debate “If you agree with me, go to ‘Joe 30330’ and help me in this fight. Thank you very much.”

Hey Joe, I’m sure that you can learn to program after you lose.

The psy says that Pelosi is a Trump's coworker. Indeed, she is very far from being such thing, as in democracy, it exists a strong separation of powers. So no one is more away from Trump than her. I am sure there is something about that in the US constitution.

The psychiatrist is from Yale University.
That is a very elite University and their judgment/opinion must not be questioned (no matter how stupid it sounds) ;-)


PS I agree with you LaPalice that Pelosi can hardly be considered a co-worker of Pres. Trump.
They work in different branches of the federal government.

Based on having taught there for one year, Yale is pretty much "Deep State Uni," so I doubt anyone who is not vociferously Never Trumper would last there past one semester. Some students may just bite their tongue, and staff of course are constantly doing everything they can to impose low-grade sabotage on the elite administrators and faculty. But all the "Ruling Class" from top to bottom had better be profoundly anti-Trump if they want to stay onboard.

There are ethical concerns with a psychiatrist publicly discussing her "diagnosis" of a public figure without an in person exam or even the permission of the patient. She's a partisan hack.

Yep. Probably should lose all her licenses tbh. Seems like a rather egregious breach of ethics.

I am doubtful that will happen.

Who decides on whether she would lose her licenses?
A board of people made up of her “peers”?

She is not the first psychiatrist/ psychologist to opine in the media or social media about Trump’s mental health.
I have not heard about any of them receiving any sort of punishment or reprimand for speculating on someone’s mental health without having conducted an actual examination.
