The idea of a Donald Trump presidency has been terrifying from the second he rode down that escalator and announced that he was running for president. However, his behavior in recent weeks has been so completely unhinged that people on both sides of the political aisle have been questioning his mental stability. Even the sitting president did something completely unprecedented and came out and said that Trump is quote, “unfit to serve as president.”
Now, a Democratic congresswoman from California, Karen Bass, has done what no one has had the courage to do, andstarted a Change.org petition calling for Donald Trump to undergo a mental health evaluation. Bass, who had a career in healthcare prior to running for office, says of her decision to move forward with what is surely to be a controversial move regarding the other party’s standard-bearer in her petition:
Also, in case people had any doubt about what Narcissistic Personality Disorder is and how Trump fits the profile, Rep. Bass laid all of that out as well. From The Hill:
Well, that definitely describes Trump’s public behavior to the letter, and therefore Rep. Bass’s request is completely justified. Hopefully, the GOP leadership heeds this warning and — even if it is done privately — has Trump evaluated, if for no other reason than the fact that they actually care about the American people they represent.
