Democrats Question Trump's Sanity, Blasted For "Weaponizing Mental Health"

Tyler Durden's picture

The desperation is becoming grotesque as the left's inability to move through the stages of grief is ever more evident.

In the latest farcical attempt to create a narrative, as The Hill reports, a growing number of Democrats are openly questioning President Trump’s mental health.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) in a floor speech this week called for a review of the Constitution's procedures for removing a president. He warned the 25th Amendment of the Constitution falls short when it comes to mental or emotional fitness for office.

 

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) during a weekend interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” said that “a few” Republican colleagues have expressed concern to him about Trump's mental health.

 

 

And Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) plans to introduce legislation that would require the presence of a psychiatrist or psychologist in the White House.

The Democrats justify their questions by pointing to Trump’s habit of making demonstrably false claims.

“It’s not normal behavior. I don’t know anybody in a position of responsibility that doesn’t know if they’re being rained on. And nobody I work with serially offers up verifiably false statements on an ongoing basis,”

So not hapy with dividing the nation by sex (all of them), race, wealth, and clothing manufacturer, The Democrats have decided to pray on mental health, which has invited criticism that they have gone too far...

“It’s divisive. The bottom line is, if Trump doesn’t succeed, we all fail. It’s time to give the guy a chance,” said Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.).

Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Mike Simpson (R-Idaho) both burst out laughing when told some Democratic colleagues were questioning Trump’s mental health.

“Are you serious?” Hunter asked. “Yeah, I don’t care what they say.”

“I think that’s a stretch,” Simpson said.

Furthermore, mental health professionals say the politicization comes at a cost. Political actors suggesting an opponent has psychological problems risks stigmatizing people with actual mental illnesses, they say.

“I think the politicization is troubling,” said Joshua Miller, a psychologist at the University of Georgia whose research focuses on pathological personality traits and personality disorders.

 

“We certainly wouldn’t want individuals to use mental illness as a weapon to harm others.”

Still when all you have an identity-politics hammer, every feeling-hurting problem is a nail.

Perhaps the Democrats should remember that, as Judge Jeanine notes, "the American people voted for Trump because he made sense to them..."

And Fox lowers the boom on the Soros dirty hands in leftist riots and demonstrations using taxpayer money.

“This guy is a spider with lots of webs,” GOP strategist Brad Blakeman told Fox News' "Strategy Room." “He controls numerous third-party groups, where he uses his influence. We’ve seen it internally with Black Lives Matter, the demonstrations taken place after the inaugural -- this is what he does.”

What the Dems say is true - Trump is just a whackob.

I agree with Roger Stone.  While Trump is doing things they don't politically like, he is NOT crazy, and anyone who is trying to fight him politically by saying he is crazy is lying and should be sued for defamation.

Trump would lose that, being a public figure and all.  IMO, it is better for Trump to let them keep on blathering and frothing at the mouth.  Every time he gets his way, he needs to rub their noses in it.

I agree.  Just when you think the unhinged Demotard Hillary supporters have sunken to the lowest, they find a way to sink their credibility even further.  It's glorious!  Keep on doing this, you idiot haters.  I'm lovin' it!!!

Oh yeah Al Franken, the motivational speaker who lives in a van down by the river. He should probably just shut up and be thankful for what he's got.

nmewn's picture

Fucking Frankel...lol...and historical fact, the dimz marveled at how well Bill Clinton lied. They knew it was a lie but it was "a well spoken lie"...and they marveled at how well he could lie.

Now think about that, they jovially go along chuckling, with the lie because he's their liar...following the pied piper of lies right off the edge of the cliff while argumentatively defending the meaning of the word "is" when used in the telling of a lie, to try and disguise...the lie.

They wallow in lies: Obama (everything about him), feminists supporting the Clintons Ol' Wild Rapin' Bill thanks you kindly, 5% unemployment, amnesty so they don't have to pay $10 for strawberries, (help us out here happy hour is kicking in)...

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!  Who the fuck is Al Franken anyway?  What kind of mature adult legislator sits before the American (if not world) public and makes a total ass out of himself by asking the president's cabinet nominees if they enjoyed meeting him, as if he's some interesting and exciting person.  Only a raging narcissist acts like that--clearly mentally ill, right?

And look at how unhinged all the liberals have gotten--I guess they're confusing their own craziness and are transferring it onto Trump now.

budd_dwyers_gun's picture

And once again, a rule-of-thumb rings true. Liberals/regressive-left psychologically project. Pretty safe to assume that whatever they act outraged about "the other side" doing, they themselves are guilty of on a far larger scale.

If the people questioning Trumps mental health are NOT mental health professionals, they can be ridiculed and ignored.

If they ARE mental health professionals, Trump can file a complaint to the appropriate licensing board for malpractice for making a diagnosis WITHOUT examining the patient.  YANK LICENSE!

IT  DOESN'T MATTER IF TRUMP IS A PUBLIC FIGURE!

Isn't it funny that when a Soros Troll shows up there is always at least one more right behind him. Astroturfing 101 at work. Send in the Clowns.

Here's some info I just picked up on the web.

"

A former CIA agent says that General Michael Flynn was ousted from the White House after obtaining a Washington DC pedophile list naming high-level politicians who belong to a DC pedo ring. 

According to Robert David Steele, Flynn was actually fired after he obtained a list of names, some of whom the FBI were actively investigating in connection to the Pizzagate scandal, and one of whom was Vice President Mike Pence’s “best friend.”

  x x

The former CIA officer says that there are locations in Washington DC and Saudi Arabia where children are routinely “ordered” and trafficked to highly placed politicians operating in the Capitol.

Here’s the main summary points for the first 5 minutes of the video:

* Donald Trump is our chance to take down the deep state

* “White hat” intelligence community was able to stop Hillary from rigging the vote electronically like she did to Bernie

* Former CIA head John Brennan committed treason by telling lies intended to overturn the Electoral College

* John Brennan highest paid agent of Saudi Arabia, should be under FBI investigation

* Reince Priebus is an enabler and cover-upper of pedophilia — Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is the tip of the iceberg

* Wikileaks is going to take down Priebus?

* Pedophilia is an “elite privilege” — For the Democrats it’s an “acquired taste” — Podesta is a “pedo-light”

* The Republicans and the elite in banking are the ones who have made pedophilia a “big league thing”

* There are Saudi Arabian and Washington DC restaurants with basements where you can order children off of the menu

* DC pedophilia is the Achilles heel, and Trump has figured that out

* Flynn didn’t get fired because he called the Russians

* Flynn got fired because he “had the arrogance to think” (sarcasm) that he could tell Mattis and Tillerson what to do

* Flynn pissed off VP Pence

* Flynn’s call that got him in trouble included a conversation about a list of high-level pedophiles inside the US, one of whom happens to be VP Mike Pence’s best friend

* Flynn did not tell Pence about the list, or that his “best friend” was on it. Pence found out about this from the deep state (probably NSA taps)

* The NSA has been spying on all of our politicians with impunity!

* The CIA is leaking HIGHLY classified information as part of a political coup against Trump"

Anyone remember Hillary cracking wise, "what goes around, comets around", in regards to Flynn's firing I believe?? Using just a tiny bit of logic and deductive reasoning, the question begs to be asked, why would she, of all people, crack wise on such a thing?

These shitbirds are running for their lives, definitely running scared, which makes them more dangerous than usual'

The MSM narrative is not going to fly, and the civil "war" is being taken to them hard. I believe, without question, Trump surrogates must read here, perhaps the don himself.

It is difficult to keep up with the pace of daily, unfolding developments, but interestingly they have a definite ZH "tone."

Fascinating ....

 

Got The Wrong No's picture

If Trump's people read ZH then they definitely need to watch the video chubbar posted. If Soros has his way we are in for a shit storm of violence this spring, The Pedophilia pukes are on both sides of the isle and rampant with the Bankers and the elite. They are keeping Trump bogged down with diversions to keep him away from the Pedo Swamp. The people need to organize in order to counter what is coming.

Soros is only the head of the snake. He is doling out money to those that believe the same way he does. You could head chop him and his kids and someone in his organization would step up and continue on funding their disciples. The Soros swamp needs draining too.

thebigunit's picture

Doesn't make sense to fire Flynn BECAUSE he got pedofile list,  What's to keep him from blabbing on his own?

It would be better to keep him on the payroll and require him to be a "team player".

see my link above.

it makes sense that dt can go after the whole of this scum using their tactics of jeopardizing natl sec.

Flynn will be working in the background. He is serious about taking down the Pedophiles

Dems are in panic mode as more defect to the sane, job-creatin gside that won by a Landslide and is still Winning every day, little by little despite the horrendous anti-American hostility from dems, neocons, sors-funded thugs and the universities, the tech compnaies (with their thousands of cheap labor H1-b visa trolls) not to mention the out of control judge Robart and the 9th Circus.

 

And Ginsberg had better recuse herself from ANY case that involves President Trump even remotely after her illegitimate remarks.

I don't think it is "grief" - it smells more like fear, they are shitting themselves.
