White House Employees Sought Psychiatrist For Trumps “Unraveling”


It was noted just this week from the set of Morning Joe that in 2016 close associates to Donald Trump were talking about the early stages Alzheimer’s Disease impacting the then Republican Party nominee.  Today more icing about the nature of the health condition of Trump has come to land on the cake,

White House officials reached out to a noted Yale University psychiatrist last fall out of concern over President Trump’s increasingly erratic behavior.  Dr. Bandy Lee, who edited the best-selling book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President,” told the Daily News Thursday the staffers contacted her because the President was “scaring” them.

Lee’s revelation comes as Trump fumes in response to an anonymous op-ed about administration insiders White House tell-all by journalist Bob Woodward that claims there are grave concerns among the highest ranks of the Trump administration about the President’s judgment.

Lee briefed a dozen lawmakers from the House and Senate last December about Trump’s fitness to be President. But lawmakers on Capitol Hill weren’t the only ones alarmed by the President’s erratic behavior, his troubling tweets or his temper. A pair of West Wing representatives  contacted her two separate times on the same day because they believed the President was “unraveling.”
