Yale Shrink Won’t Comment On Biden Citing ‘Professional Standards’ After Just Claiming Trump Is Mentally Unfit For Office
The Yale psychiatrist, Brandy Lee who wrote a book claiming President Trump was “mentally unfit” for office won’t talk about Biden.
Democrats have even had this woman testify at congressional hearings to use her as a witness to try and remove the President.
To be clear this woman never met President Trump and she never examined him. Now that the former Vice President Joe Biden has shown several symptoms of mental health problems she is refusing to offer a diagnosis as she did for President Trump.
Washington Monthly reports:
Brandy X. Lee, one of the mental health professionals who has been very vocal about Trump’s unfitness for office, explained why a declination to diagnose Biden is in keeping with professional standards.
“I do not diagnose without examination and do not speak about public figures in general, unless there is evidence of such profound danger to public health and well-being because of serious signs of mental instability in a public servant, that it would be a public disservice not to share the knowledge and training that I have. Biden has not risen to this threshold…
I never spoke up about a president or a presidential candidate either before or after Donald Trump, and neither have thousands of mental health professionals who have come forth with similar concerns in ways that are unprecedented in U.S. history, for any president of any party. I only speak up when there is a medical need of such great magnitude as to risk the survival of the human species.
This is definitively Donald Trump, not Biden. Nor is it Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, or any other false equivalences people wish to create for political purposes.”
But, just three days ago Lee was quoted by Salon magazine saying that Trump is “putting lives at risk” with coronavirus and Pence is “enabling” him:
President Trump’s preoccupation with his own image amid the spread of the coronavirus is “putting lives at risk” and Vice President Pence is only “enabling” him, Yale psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee told Salon in an interview this week.
Lee is a forensic psychiatrist at the Yale School of Medicine who also teaches at Yale Law School and has spent the last three years urging Congress to respond more forcefully to the dangers posed by what she sees as the president’s deteriorating mental health. Lee, who consults widely with state and foreign governments on public health approaches to violence prevention, urged the House Judiciary Committee to include a panel of mental health experts during Trump’s impeachment and called for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to request an involuntary 72-hour psychiatric hold of the president.
Typical liberal hypocrisy, they’ll claim President Trump is mentally unfit but their own nominee is unfit.
