Bill Would Force Trump To Get Mental Health Exam

There have been many not-so-subtle assertions from the Left that President Donald Trump is not playing with a full deck. Those assertions become louder at times, and they rose to the point that they weren’t so subtle anymore in the wake of the furor over Trump’s Charlottesville remarks. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) wasn’t about to let the opportunity to thrust herself into the spotlight pass her by, and she kicked the whole conversation up a notch. As the Mercury News shares, she’s introduced a congressional resolution for Trump to have his head examined.

In addition to the resolution, Lofgren dropped a self-aggrandizing press release to tout her waste of time at the expense of her constituents.

“President Donald J. Trump has exhibited an alarming pattern of behavior and speech causing concern that a mental disorder may have rendered him unfit and unable to fulfill his Constitutional duties,” the resolution states.

Political talking points out of the way, the resolution goes on to urge the Cabinet to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals to examine the President … to determine whether the President suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his constitutional duties.”

For the release, the amateur medical professional pondered whether POTUS is suffering from “early stage dementia” or if “the stress of office aggravated a mental illness crippling impulse control.”

Lo and behold, Lofgren got the media attention she so desired, and she would proceed to share more words of wisdom with an undoubtedly captivated audience.

“I’m not a psychiatrist or a psychologist,” she said. “If it was a physical ailment, you would be getting the advice of doctors. The same thing should be true to take a look at his stability here.”

Hmmm. So she acknowledges she’s not a mental health professional, but she feels it’s perfectly appropriate to conduct an armchair diagnosis from afar? That sounds perfectly reasonable.

“The bill probably will not pass, but it will stimulate a conversation,” Lofgren acknowledged, but she tugged at the heartstrings of America by noting that POTUS should accept a mental examination “if he cares about the country.”

What a noble patriot. Trump has to be filled with nothing but self doubt and fear after she dropped her stirring words. We would imagine that he has appointments secured with the nation’s top doctors to get to the bottom of all of the things that Lofgren so graciously took the time to point out. Or not.

Is there really nothing more that an elected representative from the state of California has to do than attempt to stir the pot in a bid to raise her own profile? There’s a real solid chance that her constituents would find a whole boatload of things to focus her attentions on. She won’t, but she’ll promise to try really, really, really hard the next time she’s up for election. As opposed to casting ballots, perhaps voters in her district can spend the day sending her self-aggrandizing letters explaining how they no longer wish to play her reindeer games.
