Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published 1 min ago on July 17, 2019
By Tana Ganeva

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed “The Squad,” after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he’s doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women “left-wing cranks.” He added that they were free to leave if they don’t like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President’s racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-ILL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

She and her coauthors recently prepared a mental health analysis of the Mueller report with recommendations. On July 23, 2019, they will present their analysis at a town hall-style meeting on Capitol Hill as well as unveil five questions they would like to ask Special Counsel Robert Mueller (for more information, visit: dangerouscase.org).

4. How are they going to get their message out to the public?

No media company is going to give them much, if any, time on their network. Don't most people already realize that he is a sadistic and dangerous monster who is getting worse by the second? His cult loves his crazy "antics" and chaos. They voted for him to "shake things up" in DC.

13. Ah... professional confirmation feels so good. Unfortunately it's true and

Unfortunately no lead to at least impeach.

How about this..impeach with one article..."president trump is accused of negligence toward the people of the US for removing the regulation that stopped coal companies from dumping cancer causing sludge into streams"

15. There is a very simple way to deal with the creature's tweets

Ignore them completely. Those tweets that are offensive then hold him in contempt, but the media needs to stop this circus about the idiot's tweets.

If the media starts ignoring them he will go insane, I know he is insane now, but you know what I mean, he will start banging his head on walls and doing very crazy stuff, I know he does crazy stuff now, but demented stuff...geez! I know he does demented stuff, but anyway...he needs to be ignored and not put so much weight on his stupidity.

I know its not easy, but it must be done.

19. Deteriorating? He has always been this way

 

There are just less people around that can control him. He was born an idiot and has remained true to his genes in adulthood. He does not have the capacity to plan or develop a strategy.

20. See this is the problem we have with him

Everyone keeps trying to come up with a reason or explanation for his behavior; he's deteriorating mentally, he's on Adderol (sp), etc. Maybe those things are true maybe they aren't but it just helps him continue to do what he's doing.

He's an idiot on many things, math, economics, history but he is a genius on one very important thing. Being a con man! He knows exactly what he is doing he's deflecting, he's pitting people against each other and so on. This is all to further the con and keep the heat off himself and he's done this for decades. It's what a con man does; he needs to keep 3 steps ahead of the people being conned and he's brilliant at it.

21. Trump's racism is a tool of manipulation. It has a long and disgraceful pedigree throughout history.
