Time to grab the butterfly net:

37 psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers said in a joint letter published in the New York Times dated Monday that President Donald Trump is unfit to be president.

"We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president," the letter reads.
 

As the mental health experts acknowledge in the letter, it's unusual for people in their position to take a position on the well-being of a public figure.

In 1973 ,the American Psychiatric Association (APA) banned members from speculating about the mental health of people they have not personally examined. Termed the "Goldwater Rule," the APA adopted it in part to respond to some psychiatrists who had made some ill-advised statements about 1964 Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater.

I'm starting to think they're right.

The other options are stupid or traitorous.

Well, it's obvious he suffers from narcissism. All the classic symptoms are there.

The Huffington Post said 97% of the worlds social workers agree. It's settled psychology. Spread the word.

So will these people quit their profession since they went against the ban..?? Or these doctor's think it didn't mean what it said ....

 

Did any of the Goldwater statements influence the election .?? Would Vietnam have turned out differently ......

They have not examined him, so they have been unethical from a professional perspective; should probably have their licenses revoked, at least temporarily.

Its a funny comment, considering how ethically impaired our president is.

I'm going with stupid and politically inexperienced, because their "expertise" is obviously colored by their political beliefs.

 

Ill bet you the isn't a non left wing Dem or even a middle of the road type among them.

If that is true, it's because they know Rightism is a mental illness.

Okay, but what does that have to do with it? I didn't know you were a Scripture expert now. ;)

It has everything to do with it. Donny's behavior is consistent with narcissistic personality behavior disorder. It is so obvious that those who deny it are just refusing to see it. And I'm very disappointed with your snarky Scripture comment. You are setting a great example for your fellow blinder wearing Trump supporters.
