IKEJA, Lagos, Nigeria – President of the United States, Donald J. Trump is mentally ill and needs to be urgently examined, editor of the book, Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, Bandy Lee has said.
The editor who made the revelation on Aljazeera said Trump remains a danger to members of the public and needs to be examined urgently, adding the worst is yet to come.
Bandy Lee said Trump’s incitement to violence, assault on women, endorsement of violence, his comments on the NFL and recent altercation with Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un are signs of his mental illness and that they are symptomatic of post election syndrome.
Bandy Lee advised that procedure be put in place to subject every presidential candidate to mental evaluation the way it is done for those entering military service.
Bandy Lee is an M.D.; M.Div. (Master of Divinity); assistant clinical professor, Yale Law and Psychiatry Division; co-founder and director of the Violence and Health Study Group for the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies; as well as co-leader of Academic Collaborators for the World Health Organization’s Violence Prevention Alliance.
“We were honored, and a little scared, when she asked us to contribute to a new book she was putting together, with the working title, Duty to Warn. The book was time-sensitive in that she, other contributors, and interested publishers felt an urgency to get the book into the hands of the public and governmental powers-that-be as soon possible. We had less than a month to send our essay to her.
“All other projects were sidelined as we devoted the next two weeks to researching and writing.
Fortunately, we had “The Elephant” as an outline and our time perspective expertise in observing Trump’s extreme present hedonistic behavior to help us determine our findings. As we dug deeper into the fallout of Trump as president, we became increasingly alarmed by how one person can affect an entire nation. We used this newfound knowledge for our book chapter, as well as two subsequent PsychogyToday.com post: “The Trump Effect, Part I,” about the increase in bullying in schools and a small adult population across the U.S. since the 2016 presidential campaign; and “Part II,” about the increase in sexual harassment incidents.
“Since Gartner’s organization is Duty to Warn, Bandy’s book was retitled The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President. The book is slated for release on October 3 and can be preordered through Amazon; it’s already #1 in Amazon’s Popular Psychology Pathologies category”, Psychology today said on her.
Bandy’s introduction explains in detail the risks, legal as well as professional, of writing a book like The Dangerous Case.
Contributors to the book are Gail Sheehy; Lance Dodes, M.D., Training and Supervising Analyst Emeritus at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and retired Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School; Gartner (of course!); and Noam Chomsky, to name a few.
