Twenty plus years ago, a guy I know suggested that ten of us pitch in and buy a unit at Trump Tower in NYC. We each needed to pony up around $100,000. Well, it seemed like a lot of money and we didn’t do it. Years later we all lamented what a great investment it would have been.
It points out a lamentable fact. You can’t predict what a person is truly like until you have an opportunity to really get to know him. Well, we now know Trump. A name-calling, bigoted, misogynistic, immature, bully who has disgraced the presidency. Oh, did I forget to mention, dumb…? Who in his right mind would call Don Lemon, Lebron James and anyone who disagrees with him dumb? We know who! All his money certainly didn’t buy class, sophistication or good manners. I picture him walking IN FRONT of the queen of England with absolutely no clue as to how inelegant and stupid he appeared.
There are laws that make it a professional obligation for physicians to report any patient who is a danger to himself or to others. I agree with that law. It protects all of us from someone who has the capacity to do himself or us harm.
I hereby report to followers of Inside The Mind of a Psychiatrist that Donald Trump is a threat to all of us. His crass insensitivity and overt lies are not amusing or just political. His shameless attacks on Hispanics, Blacks and WOMEN is obscene. His denial of global warming is ignorant. His collaboration with Putin horrifying! ETC. HE IS ENDANGERING EVERYTHING THAT OUR COUNTRY IS FOUNDED ON!
