‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

“As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he’s not about public health,” Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

“Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath — in many ways, he’s damaged democracy — I think people’s lives will be lost now,” he warned. “Individual lives will be lost because of the way he’s mishandling the coronavirus issue.”

“To your original point, Lawrence, yes, he’s getting worse,” Dr. Dodes said. “The more things go badly for him, the more paranoid he becomes, the more out of touch with reality, and the more bad decisions he’s going to make, the more desperate he’s going to be to hold on to what he needs in his power.”

Activists and commentators are furious that the New York Times gave the column width to Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, who has been advocating the violent overthrow of the protesters if necessary.

While that move is illegal and a clear violation of the Constitution and Cotton's oath of office, he took to Twitter to encourage murdering protesters instead of arresting them.

"No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters," Cotton tweeted this week.

GOP senator writes op-ed calling to ‘send in the troops’ against George Floyd protesters

Published

on

On Wednesday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) wrote an op-ed in The New York Times calling on the federal government to "send in the troops" against the people protesting the killing of George Floyd.

"Some elites have excused this orgy of violence in the spirit of radical chic, calling it an understandable response to the wrongful death of George Floyd," wrote Cotton. "Those excuses are built on a revolting moral equivalence of rioters and looters to peaceful, law-abiding protesters. A majority who seek to protest peacefully shouldn’t be confused with bands of miscreants."
