The Far Left once again has suffered exposure for their agenda to destroy the US President. Remember the first week of the year when a Yale psych professor went on TV to publicize her remote “diagnosis” that Pres. Trump is unfit to be president?
She is also said to have had two days of meetings with members of Congress.
We ask, how do our politicians justify spending so much time with someone who even admitted that what she was doing was a violation of her profession’s ethic code.
Read the excerpt of the story below from Zero Hedge:
Accusations have been circulating on Twitter that the prominent Yale professor, known for her public diagnosis of President Donald Trump as having a “mental impairment” and who recently met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss the issue, isn’t actually a licensed psychiatrist.
In fact, Campus Reform discovered that according to the State of Connecticut, Lee’s “physician/surgeon” license expired in 2015, and her application for reinstatement has been “pending” ever since.
Additionally, her “controlled substance registration for practitioner” license has apparently “lapsed,” expiring in February 2017.
Without mentioning Lee specifically, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) put out a recent statement in which it condemned the diagnoses of public officials whom psychiatrists have not personally examined, invoking what is commonly referred to as the Goldwater Rule.
“We at the APA call for an end to psychiatrists providing professional opinions in the media about public figures whom they have not examined, whether it be on cable news appearances, books, or in social media,” the statement read, according to The Washington Examiner.
“Arm-chair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical,” the APA concluded.
Lee and a colleague, however, responded to criticisms in a Wednesday POLITICO piece, in which they claim that “it’s perfectly OK to question the president’s mental state,” since they are “psychiatrists.”
My View: We find this misuse of Medical examinations and license extremely unethical. Psychiatry should be done in-person by a medical professional with proper approval and licensing. Not by some academic who watches too much biased (and often fake) news.This practice hurts the entire medical community, but highlights some of the growing pitfalls in society and modern politics. Liberals appear to feel quite superior to their “deplorable” counterparts and seem to believe their “status” (often in Academia or the Media) makes their opinion “correct”. Hopefully American stop listening to misguided people pushing fake “facts” like this professor.
