A major mistake of the Trump era may prove to be repeatedly using political/legal processes to retroactively punish Trump for egregious/inhumane/illegal behaviors/actions, instead of using those behaviors to justify/compel mental health evaluations to pre-empt *future* harm. 1/
To be clear, this doesn’t necessary mean involuntary commitment, because as many mental health professionals have pointed out,….: 2/
However, after listening to impeachment testimony and watching Republican congressmen engage in political theatre/fiction, it is painfully obvious that, from a process/procedural standpoint, it is a mistake continue to look at Trump’s behavior (mental health)…. 3/

@ianbassin 12/11/17: A Letter to Congress from Concerned Mental Health Experts. Prof. @BandyXLee1: “A group of us put our concerns into a book #TheDangerousCaseOfDonaldTrump… there are 1000's of us, ready to communicate our case to you, should you choose to hear us” goodmarriagecentral.wordpress.com/2017/12/28/a-l…
@ianbassin @BandyXLee1 A Warning to the Nation. By Prof. Judith Herman and Prof. @BandyXLee1: “When a person poses a danger because of mental disturbance, psychiatrists are mandated to report, to incapacitate and to take steps to protect the public.” (1/25/2018) usnews.com/opinion/articl… @DangerousCase

Dear @SteveScalise @GOPLeader @SenBillCassidy @SenJohnKennedy : I know reading isn’t your strong suit, since it took you days to read a brief call memo. But you really need to read this story by a Republican lawyer based in DC. NO REALLY! theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
This particular Republican lawyer also has a rock solid source inside the White House. Maybe y’all should pay attention. 👀#TrumpLies
A former Trump lawyer: “He lies his a$$ off.” Isn’t capable of telling the truth. Not good for a POTUS, huh? #UnfitForOffice

The whistleblower story is not shocking to the mental health community. Yes, it's shocking we're in this place, but the behavior = consistent with the disorder. We must learn from history. The bar will keep moving toward the obvious: he loses the election and won't leave. (more)
We understand the Speaker's sensitivity to public sentiment. We understand a large swathe of the public is experiencing Malignant Normality. But Speaker - if you expect a peaceful transition of power because that's how it is generally done, please alter your expectations. (more)
The time to impact the public narrative is now. The time for impeachment has come. The time for infusing the narrative HEAVILY with the nature of his disorder is also now - his pathology is the only explanation for the underlying core of what he says and does.

@CNNSotu Oddly, you discuss #eugenics in America in the 1920s, but you never mention #MargaretSanger, the founder of @PPFA, and her approval of #GermanEugenicSterilzation, #KKK, and other efforts to eliminate the production of offspring by the #unfit.
I say, "oddly" with respect to your omission because Sanger's love affair with #eugenics ran so deeply through her activism that it constituted a part of the masthead of her "Birth Control Review."
Sanger didn't pull punches about the intended use of #eugenic #sterilization:

"There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take off the burdens of the insane and the feeble-minded from your backs."

.@ResistOrganize I blame the deaths of four Americans in Syria on the blatant disregard for their safety as #POTUS publicly announced their troop movements with a timeline. Making them targets and inspiring ISIS recruitment; more blood will be spilled. #TreasonIsTheReason
#UNFIT
Operational security is the process used to deny enemy access to our intentions and capabilities by identifying, controlling, and protecting indicators associated with our planning or operations.

The OPSEC process often restricts informing ANYONE of future troop movements.
Even inadvertently exposing unit information (e.g. deployment schedule, troop movements, locations, size, capabilities, etc.) is a betrayal of your duty to the safety of every member of the team.

Since coward bonespurs used their lives as political pawns, #POTUS is responsible.

🔥 BURNING QUESTION 🔥

Why does America need a movie to tell us "the obvious" about Donald Trump?

Find out in this thread...
1. Trump's personality disorder is well-known to mental health professionals ... but not to the public!
2. The majority of the public is not aware of how clearly Trump fits the diagnostic criteria. We teach them about the DSM and the term "Malignant Narcissist."
