Re: “It’s easy to diagnose what ails Trump haters,” (TNT letter, 8/3).
The letter writer was certainly right to question the opinion of a private individual. However, a much larger group of psychiatry experts meeting at a recent conference at Yale University has pretty much agreed that Trump does indeed have a serious mental illness, labeling him “paranoid and delusional.”
Their group, Duty to Warn, made up of several dozen mental health professionals, have warned that popular vote loser Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the country. His delusional state began on Day One, with his pronouncement that his inauguration crowd was larger than President Obama’s, despite all evidence to the contrary.
Of course, Trump supporters will recognize the findings of professionals as “fake news,” just as they have the findings of every one of our national security agencies that Russia interfered with our presidential elections.
With Trump’s approval ratings in the toilet and heading further south with each tweet, and with reliable conservative writers and pundits publicly expressing their disgust, I don’t expect there will be much “winning” in the future for Trump. But, there is always his buddy, Comrade Putin, that he can turn to for help.
