Psychiatrist says Trump’s anti-impeachment letter vindicates his warnings about president’s disturbed mental state

Published

Reacting to an eyebrow-raising letter from President Trump to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a psychiatrist took to Twitter to point out that it’s just another example of what he and his fellow mental health experts have been warning about for years: Trump is unstable.

Responding to a tweet from CNN’s Asha Rangappa who said that Trump’s erratic letter confirmed her previous warning that he wouldn’t be able to handle the impeachment process, Dr. David Reiss pointed that he has been issuing similar warnings throughout the years.

“It’s not like some of us mental health professionals haven’t been warning about this for well over two years,” he tweeted while a sharing a link to a 2017 article that highlighted opinions on Trump from mental health experts.

In a subsequent tweet, Reiss wrote that Trump’s letter could be interpreted in a few different ways, but the one thing for sure is it exemplifies reckless behavior.

“How should Trump’s letter be viewed?” Reiss wrote. “As a toddler crying out to an absent mommy. There’s no thought behind it. There’s no strategy. There’s no consideration of consequences. He feels he is being treated unfairly and mommy should protect him from the bad people.”

In the letter, Trump characterizes Pelosi’s actions as the result of a personal agenda.

“You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying ‘I pray for the President,’ when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense,” Trump wrote. “It is a terrible thing you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!”

Pro-Trump internet trolls tried to hijack Nickelodeon’s kid’s survey on who should be president — and failed

Published

on

On Tuesday, Nickelodeon hosted its "Kids Pick The President" straw poll, in which young viewers of the network give their own opinion on who should win the presidential election. The poll has no electoral significance, given that kids cannot vote and given that the survey methodology is not scientific and lets anyone opt in regardless of how it balances the sample.

Despite this, pro-Trump internet trolls reportedly sought to hijack the results, spreading the message to get people to flood the poll with votes for President Donald Trump.

In the end, however, they couldn't even do it. Joe Biden won the poll, 53 percent to 47 percent.

Wisconsin residents saw a “nightmare scenario” situation unfold Tuesday as 5,262 COVID-19 cases rocked the state, resulting in 64 deaths as President Donald Trump held a large campaign rally with few masks and zero social distancing.

"This is no longer a slow-motion disaster," said Gregory Poland, director of the vaccine research group at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "This is a disaster in warp speed. And it's maddening to me as a physician because a whole lot of people have died and are dying."

Visitors to the site briefly saw a fake DOJ takedown notice.

"This site was seized," the message read. "The world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded (sic) by President Donald J. Trump."

"It is time to allow the world to know the truth," the message continued.

The message also claimed "secret conversations" prove the Trump administration "is involved in the origin of the coronavirus."

There is no evidence that is the case, experts believe the virus originated in China.
