In New Haven, Connecticut twenty-five researchers made a decision to challenge ethical Hippocratic standards and offer a diagnosis on the president’s behavior. 

In recent days, Trump attacked some of his most ardent supporters in the Owners of 32 National Football League teams.  People who provided millions for his campaign and beyond including helping him to campaign.  In a strange twist of actions, he attacked their players and livelihood over the weekend suggesting the owner fire any player supporting the peaceful protest initiated by Colin Kaepernick to bring attention to unarmed American’s being gunned down by peace officers. 

The nation’s leading psychiatrists converged on Yale University a concluded that Donald Trump has all the hallmarks of mental illness.   The distinguished group are suggesting that his mental situation could compromise his role as president. 

In an open letter the group said about the commander in chief’s mental state, 'makes him incapable of serving safely as president'.  This doctors made the diagnosis despite the Goldwater rule which states one should never make a diagnosis of public figures unless there is a one on one assessment.   The rule suggest such a move could be unethical, the group declared the information is being brought forward through a need to warn the public at large. 

Worried journalist and lawmakers on the hill have pointed finger at Mr. Trumps mental which prompted the psychiatrist to get to gather and push against its own dictum on public figures. 

Trumps speeches and actions demonstrate the inability to tolerate views different from his own leading to “rage reactions.”   The group also insisted his words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize, leading to a distorted reality, they collectively insisted, “We fear that too much is at stake to be silent any longer.”  The doctors say the recurrences will become more frequent and last longer as the president ages.

The list of physicians below stress, Mr. Trumps mental problems will force him to attempt to “press any opposition underfoot.”

Dr. John Gartner the organizer of the panel said,

“I’ve worked with murderers and rapists. I can recognize dangerousness from a mile away. You don’t have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is.”


The group has put together a petition to get rid of Mr. Trump due to his dangerousness to society.  He is being accused of narcissistic, chauvinistic and anti-social behavior forcing him out to the circle that is considered normal. 

The meeting culminated with the group agreeing to say that in their professional judgement Mr. Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duty of President of the United States.
