The Democrats have found a new way, they believe, that they could stop President Donald Trump and possibly remove him from the White House.
As ridiculous as their previous ideas have been, this one could be the most mind-numbing idea they have ever had.
The idea comes from a Yale professor of psychology, and a psychiatrist herself, Bandy X Lee, who has begged House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi to place a mental health hold on President Trump.
This is something progressives have called for before, with their shouting for the 25th Amendment to be used against the president which would declare him disabled and remove him.
But the issue with that is that they would need Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to stab the president in the back.
But this professor, who has never met the president but wants to diagnose him, believes that her idea could work, she said in an interview with Salon.
“As a co-worker, she has the right to have him submit to an involuntary evaluation, but she has not,” the professor said.
“I am beginning to believe that a mental health hold, which we have tried to avoid, will become inevitable.”
“This is exactly the kind of dangerous event we foresaw as Donald Trump’s response to the impeachment proceedings, just as his pulling troops from northern Syria was a direct response to the announcement of an impeachment inquiry,” Lee said.
“This was why more than 800 mental health professionals petitioned Congress to consult with us, since, without intervention, this kind of crisis was a matter of time, not just a possibility.”
“In other words, he is extremely drawn to actions that would help him appear as if he has mental capacity, such as a ‘presidential strike’ against an enemy, while avoiding the proper procedures, such as briefing with Congress, that might expose his lack of capacity,” she said.
“What we do not expect from someone who lacks mental capacity is rational, reality-based decision making that is non-impulsive, non-reckless, and cognizant of consequences.,” the professor said.
It is important to note that Lee’s reason for this is that she believes that the president ordering the killing of terrorist Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani means that he has mental issues.
She had no such concerns when former President Obama killed Al Qaeda head Osama bin Laden.
And it is not the first time that Lee, the founder of the World Mental Health Coalition, has wanted the president removed for supposed mental issues.
She edited the book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” and she joined a group of other university psychologists asking the House of Representatives to convene a panel of psychiatrists to evaluate the president.
Presumably they would be hand picked liberal psychiatrists who would deem the president mentally unfit and remove him from the White House.
It is yet another desperate attempt to undo the 2016 presidential election, but it is sadder and more desperate than any before.
