AUGUST 8, 2017Sharing is caring!by: Robert Jonathan(Natural News) For the Left in America (and in Europe for that matter), everything and anything has to be politicized.The latest example of that sad, if not nutty, trend is a statement from the executive committee of the American Psychoanalytic Association giving its members a green light to publicly speculate about the mental health of President Trump.
Perhaps this development gives a new meaning to “crazy talk.”Under the so-called Goldwater rule, it was previously considered an ethical violation for psychiatrists to offer an opinion about the mental health of a public figure that they had not personally examined and evaluated, and without that person’s consent.In 1964, U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, an Arizona Republican, lost the presidential election to incumbent Democrat Lyndon Johnson in a landslide victory.
The Goldwater rule was adopted that same year, when psychiatrists responded to a survey about Goldwater’s psychological fitness to serve. About 50 percent of the respondents indicated that Goldwater, who was demonized by the media (sound familiar?) during the election campaign, was unfit to serve, without ever having examined him.Fast-forward to 2017:
Apparently many shrinks seem to be obsessed with Trump and apparently aren’t able to help themselves………
