California congresswoman starts petition demanding Donald Trump undergo a mental fitness exam



From LA Times

A California congresswoman has launched a petition drive calling for a mental health examination of Donald Trump.

Yes, that is a real thing that is happening.

Rep. Karen Bass, whose district includes areas in and around Los Angeles, also put a hashtag behind her effort: #DiagnoseTrump.

"It is our patriotic duty to raise the question of his mental stability to be the commander in chief and leader of the free world," she wrote in the petition on change.org.

Trump "appears to exhibit all the symptoms of the mental disorder narcissistic personality disorder," wrote Bass, who worked as a physician assistant before launching a political career. Those who suffer from the disorder can function in many careers, "but not the presidency," she added.

The notion that Trump might suffer from a mental defect marks an effort by a Democrat to push an idea that has been offered by prominent writers and others in recent days. Trump's "grasp on reality appears to be tenuous at best," Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson wrote this week.

It reflects the degree to which both parties have sought to ascribe some rationale to Trump's unpredictable behavior. 

For now, Hillary Clinton's campaign is sticking to a simple approach of broadly questioning Trump's temperament. President Obama, in comments at a White House news conference Tuesday, was more concerned with Trump's lack of policy knowledge.

Considering all the dastardly behavior Donald Trump has exhibited lately....downgrading Gold Star parents, kicking a baby out of a rally, insisting he should be able to use nukes since he has them, not knowing Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014, this makes sense.

All candidates should get a mental health exam, if they did these ones would automatically be disqualified for sure:

  1. Trump and Palin are used to cheating so their test results would probably come back marked: mutant morphed sociopath.
    Not just an ordinary nut job, ya' know.

  2. That's the thing about sociopaths, they are very good at hiding it. Would a simple exam expose it?

  3. What do you bet that this run for the presidency was egged on behind the scenes by Drumpf's adult kids--they knew he would hurry up with the inevitable melt down from all the constant pressure and scrutiny on the campaign trail. Presto! He gets forcibly committed, and they come closer to that inheritance before he spends/blows the whole wad (which is much less $$ than he pretends).

  4. Even beeber is making his old neighbors go see a shrink.

  5. So, today, he demurely read his speech, not even reacting to the hecklers.
    Wonder, what kind of drugs they put him on, and how long he will be willing to be quiet and compliant.
