Trump Derangement Syndrome Infects Psychiatrists
During the leadership of Leonid Brezhnev, psychiatry was used to disable and remove from society political opponents ("dissidents") who openly expressed beliefs that contradicted the official dogma. The term "philosophical intoxication", for instance, was widely applied to the mental disorders diagnosed when people disagreed with the country's Communist leaders." Wikepedia
So we should not be surprised when group of psychiatrists from the most disgraceful left wing universities are breaking all the laws and ethics in their Profession in order to insult Donald Trump. They are preaching: "Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition he is paranoid, delusional, and [has] grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was President," said John Gartner, a former Johns Hopkins University professor who helped launched the anti-Trump group "Duty to Warn".
This group is violating the American Psychiatric Association’s "Goldwater Rule" which prohibits a psychologist from "offering opinions on someone they have not personally evaluated." The APA even wrote a warning specifically to psychologists in 2016 that psychoanalyzing "the candidates," is "unethical". Conservative 101
This is just one more example of psychiatrists demeaning their own profession and earning the title of "shrinks." At the same time, we need to keep our eyes on them because of their notorious history in leftest countries.
