Mental-health professional questions president’s ability to serve term


Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

This is in response to the Nov. 29 letter by Jan Tucker of Oakville questioning one Allen Weber’s view written on Oct. 4 that Donald Trump is mentally ill.

She questioned his qualifications to make that determination since he was not a mental-health professional.

She stated that she was interested in only the facts in order to make her own decision.

Well, Ms. Tucker, here are the facts…

There is a publication by Dr. Brandy Lee M.D., clinical professor of psychiatry at Yale University, called “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.” I would suggest you read it.

Also, 60,000 mental-health professionals signed a petition called “A Duty to Warn” stating Donald Trump manifests a serious mental illness and should be removed under Article 4 of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I was one of those who signed that.

Yes, Ms. Tucker, we are the people who have worked with the mentally ill, from lock-up psych wards to doing individual therapy.

As far as Mr. Allen Weber is concerned, he at the very least understands that there is something not “right” with this president.

My question to you is… why have you not come to that same conclusion?
