DESPERATION: After Failing On Collusion And Obstruction, Democrats Unveil New ‘Get Trump’ policy
They really are out of ideas. The claim that Trump is mentally unfit goes right back to his 2016 campaign. I have looked at several of the claims e.g here and here and here and show how shallow they are
I was amused by the claim below that Trump had a very strict father. That is in fact a boilerplate Leftist claim about conservatives generally but the speaker gives no evidence of it in Trump's case. To me, Trump's behaviour has all the hallmarks of a very permissive upbringing -- which was the fashion during his childhood in the 40s and '50s -- Dr. Spock and all that
It's probably just old age in her case but Pelosi's mental meanderings suggest that she is the one who is unfit for office. There is a video of her going about which compiles many instances of her slurring her words and stuttering.
Democrats spent the past two years claiming they had proof that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the election and obstructed justice to block Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
After Mueller’s report clearly stated there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction, Democrats have unveiled a new “get Trump” plan.
Now, Democrats are claiming that Trump is not “mentally fit” for office and must be impeached.
Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “I pray for the President of the United States.” When asked if she was concerned about Trump’s mental state, Pelosi answered, “I am.”
Pelosi implied to reporters that Trump had mental issues, said she was “praying” for the president, and suggested that his family ought to “stage an intervention.”
This paved the way for Democrats to now claim that Trump should be impeached because he has “mental issues.”
Last week, Howard Stern spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper to discuss Trump’s mental health and said:
From what I know of Donald and his relationship with his father, it sounds traumatic. It sounds like the father was very domineering.
The father expected a lot of him. And the father, I don’t know, there was military school. You know, you read these drips and drabs and you go wow. I can assure you he’s been traumatized because, you know, Donald, you know, his level of narcissism is so strong.
He has trouble with empathy. We know that. And I wish he’d go into psychotherapy.
During an interview on Friday with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin pushed the same talking point:
“Today, the 25th Amendment has come back into focus because of the extraordinary events that took place in the White House.”
“Speaker Pelosi showed her compassionate side when she said there should be a family intervention. Unfortunately, some conditions are way beyond the capacity of a family intervention to address. This might be far more serious. Professor Bandi Lee, the psychiatrist up at Yale Medical School, had a group do a mental health analysis of the special counsel’s report and they came back and said basically, the president is failing at every level of basic mental and cognitive health.”
“He cannot take in information successfully, he cannot process information successfully, he cannot engage in decision-making without bias, distortion, impulsivity, impetuosity. And he cannot keep himself and others free from danger, which I guess are like the basic minimal requisites of mental health and they’re saying it’s missing in that case. So, the constitution has a mechanism for this. The 25th Amendment.”
After Mueller’s report clearly stated there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction, it is more than clear that Trump’s “deteriorating mental health” is the new plan Democrats will use to push impeachment.
