In an op-ed for the New York Daily News, Dr. Bandy X. Lee, the psychiatrist who briefed lawmakers regarding President Trump’s mental health wrote that she is following Trump’s words, so she is reporting to authorities that Trump is a “dangerous leader.” Her comments come after Trump called for people to report threats following the recent school shooting.
Dr. Lee wrote, “We have an analogous situation with a dangerous leader who has access to far more lethal weapons than an AR-15. Following the President’s words, I am reporting again to authorities, both as a citizen and a mental health professional, and making a record here.”
Referring to Trump’s infamous “grab them by the p***y” and “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” quotations, she wrote, “These are clear statements and acts of verbal aggression, sexual aggression, incitement to violence, endorsement of violence, encouragement of assassination, promotion of violent imagery, and actual threats and tainting of a hostile nation with nuclear power.”
She added, “Considering Mr. Trump as one of the authorities, I am following his words to say: Mr. President, please submit to a proper examination. If you do not wish to, you can always resign.”
Trump’s mental fitness has been under scrutiny since the release of author Michael Wolff’s bestselling book, ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House’ was released.
