“Surely he is racist, but that is not all. When he says, ‘I am the least racist person you have ever met,’ he tells me that he is surely the most racist person I have ever met.”
Yale psychiatry professor Bandy Lee has been trotted out by Democrats repeatedly to declare President Donald Trump mentally unfit for office. She has never even met the president, which makes her diagnosis ethically and professionally unsound, and now she is being consulted once again.
This time, she is being used to claim that Trump is a racist.

Yale psychiatrist: When Trump calls himself ‘the least racist person,’ ‘he tells me that he is surely the most racist person’
A Yale University professor and forensic psychiatrist gave a rather peculiar analysis Monday of why she deems President Donald Trump racist.
Dr. Bandy X. Lee, whose Yale faculty bio describes her as an “internationally recognized expert on violence,” made the comments in an interview with Raw Story, adding on to ones she made to the outlet on Wednesday…
The professor ascribed “pathological racism,” or the transformation of “racism into reason,” as the force animating those defending the president from allegations of racism.
Lee made these remarks after previously telling Raw Story that Trump “is deteriorating rapidly. He attacks as a maladaptive means of coping with stress, and he won’t stop.”
Tana Ganeva wrote the original report for the progressive outlet Raw Story:
Yale psychiatrist explains the root of Trump’s ‘pathological racism’
On Monday morning, President Donald Trump once again escalated his conflict with “the Squad,” the group of freshman Congresswomen of color he told to go back to their own countries. Although moderate Republicans had hoped last week that the President would tone down his remarks, on Monday he once again doubled down on Twitter…
Raw Story spoke with Yale psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee about why the president can’t stop himself from attacking the young women. Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine…
Raw Story: So you believe Mr. Trump is racist?
Dr. Bandy X. Lee: Surely he is racist, but that is not all. When he says, “I am the least racist person you have ever met,” he tells me that he is surely the most racist person I have ever met. In psychiatry, we are trained not simply to believe a person’s words at face value but to evaluate the person’s reliability, whether there are consistent patterns of defense, and whether it is the person or the disease that is speaking, before we believe.
Mr. Trump’s patterns indicate that when he says others are “hate-filled extremists who are constantly trying to tear our country down,” he actually means, “I am a hate-filled extremist constantly trying to tear this country down.”
Earlier this month, Lee and her “associates” did a psychiatric analysis of Trump and the Mueller Report. This woman is a partisan hack who deserves to lose her credentials. I defy you to make it through this without laughing:

It’s a shame that Charles Krauthammer is no longer with us. As a psychiatrist, It would be fascinating to hear his opinion of Lee and her abuse of her position to advance Trump Derangement Syndrome.DONATE
