Narrative Busted: Psychiatrist Says Trump Isn’t Mentally Ill, But, It’s Cool To Say He Is

Most are concentrating on this bat guano crazy pronouncement

…which Stelter breezed on by and is offering Excuses. Imagine had a Conservative said something similar about Obama. You can bet it would be a National Discussion today. But, there was something a little more low key from Excitable Allen Frances, that was a bit more important

Former Duke Psychiatrist Admits Trump Isn’t Mentally Ill, But ‘Go With It If It Will Get Him Out Of Office’

Former Duke Chair of Psychiatry Dr. Allen Frances admitted Sunday that President Donald Trump was not mentally ill, but suggested that if using that argument would get Trump removed from office, he would do it.

Frances appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter to discuss what he felt were the dangers of declaring Trump mentally unfit — namely, he said, calling Trump “crazy” was an insult to people who do have mental illnesses.

“There is absolutely no doubt that Trump is dangerous,” Frances claimed, arguing that Trump was “dangerous because he’s a bad, evil con man” rather than because he was mentally ill. He then suggested that it would be acceptable to lie about Trump’s mental state if there was a way to use that false narrative to get him out of office.

“I think it’s very clear that he’s dangerous because he’s evil, he’s not dangerous because he’s mentally ill, and the mentally ill argument, if it would get him out of the office, I would say go with it even if it’s inaccurate,” Frances continued. “Anything to get this man out of office. But it won’t work, so piling on inaccuracy, stigma, the press will get people who know nothing about psychiatric diagnosis spouting off at the mouth, it won’t add to the discussion, it will distract from the political stuff and we have to focus on how evil —”

So, lying in the media is fine. Though, consider, he starts to say it won’t work. And

Stelter interrupted but did not push back on Frances’ willingness to lie to push Trump out of office. Instead, he said that he felt there was a need to “connect the dots,” adding, “There is something wrong here when he’s attacking his Federal Reserve chair, misspelling the guy’s name and doing 50 of those things a day. I’m kind of grasping for the language to use around this, but it’s —”

So, Stelter wants to continue to push the narrative. You run with it, media. You run with it.

    So trump is just a bad, evil con man. That’s comforting.

      The bunny suit is sad because the front runner for the Demos is mentally ill and is showing it once again.

      The Os want Chlamydia, the Fake, not Magic, Negro, but Tulsi kicked her ass so she’s a liability; to remedy this, the Os pulled an Ozark and made sure she’s ruled out of the next “debate”, but that won’t fix the fact Chamydia’s polling at 1% among blacks. Nobody’s buying Bernie or Fauxcahontas.

      So, with the number of people identifying as Republicans rising at the expense of the Demos, the bunny suit is grabbing at every straw Fake News throws at him.

        The Hankey suit puts together another word salad of disjointed nonsense.

        trumpublicans are showing increasing fear of the upcoming elections. It’s a joy to watch, but obviously dangerous for our nation with trump and his violent hordes.

        What do you think of trump’s “ordering” US businesses to stop working with Chinese businesses?
