Democrats need psychiatric therapy to deal with Trump presidency?

Washington Times:
Some Democratic lawmakers are renewing their campaign this week questioning President Trump’s mental fitness for office, aided by a psychiatrist who is drawing ethics rebukes from her peers for giving opinions about the president without having examined him.

Lawmakers will gather for dinner Wednesday night at the Washington home of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Connecticut Democrat, in a “salon-like” setting to hear from Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University professor and forensic psychiatrist who believes Mr. Trump is “dangerous” and requires a mental-capacity exam.

DeLauro spokesman Will Serio confirmed the planned dinner meeting, but couldn’t say how many lawmakers are expected to attend.

He said the event “isn’t about achieving anything per se — simply a discussion on a topic currently in the news, and Dr. Lee can make her views known to those members who want to attend.”

Democratic lawmakers have been raising questions about Mr. Trump’s mental fitness since last spring. Dr. Lee, who has co-authored a book asserting the president’s unfitness for office, held a similar meeting last month with about a dozen House and Senate Democrats.

In an interview with Vox, Dr. Lee cited several reasons for her concern that Mr. Trump is a danger to the public, including the “sheer frequency of his tweets [that] seemed to reflect the frantic state of mind he was entering, and his retweeting some violent anti-Muslim videos showed a concerning attraction to violence. And then there were the belligerent nuclear threats” toward North Korea.

Democrats need to come to grips with the fact that is not Trump who needs psychiatric services but them.  Trump has exposed the craziness of Democrats and some psychiatric liberal professionals.  If Democrats think that Trump's cabinet and Vice President Pence are going to invoke the 25th amendment, then they are the ones who are truly crazy. 

The amendment was never intended for the purpose the Democrats are seeking to advance.  It is to be used if the president is in a coma or is otherwise incapacitated.  It is absurd to think that it should be used because the opposing party does not like the President's policies or how he is implementing them.

Resisting the evils of liberalism is not a psychiatric disorder.  It is a sign of intelligence.
