Yale Psychiatrist Bandy Lee Now Calling Alan Dershowitz Psychotic for Defending Trump

Yale Psychiatrist Bandy Lee Now Calling Alan Dershowitz Psychotic for Defending Trump

“Dr. Bandy Lee has never met me, never examined me, never seen my medical records, and never spoken to anyone close to me.”

https://youtu.be/ghg4-1rEZzk

Bandy Lee, the preferred psychiatrist of Democrats, is back in the news. Just months after her latest bogus diagnosis of Trump, she has set her sights on Alan Dershowitz.

Dershowitz has defended Trump’s rights, therefore he must be crazy.

Dershowitz writes at the Gatestone Institute:

Yale Psychiatrist Issues Diagnosis of “Psychotic” for Defending Constitutional Rights

A Yale professor of forensic psychiatry has diagnosed guess who — yours truly — as suffering from “psychosis” for expressing legal views that happen to be on the Constitutional rights of President Donald Trump. Dr. Bandy Lee has never met me, never examined me, never seen my medical records, and never spoken to anyone close to me. Yet she is prepared to offer a diagnosis of “psychosis” which she attributes to my being one of President Trump’s “followers.” (I voted for Hillary Clinton and am a liberal Democrat.)

Indeed, Dr. Lee went even further, diagnosing “the severity and spread of ‘shared psychosis’ among just about all of Donald Trump’s followers.” Nor does she seem to be using these psychiatric terms as political metaphors, dangerous as that would be. She is literally claiming that we are mentally ill and our views should be considered symptoms of our illness, rather than as legitimate ideas.

Publicly offering “professional opinions” or diagnoses in the absence of a psychiatric examination, is a violation of psychiatric ethics and the rules of the American Psychiatric Association. According to that esteemed organization, “it is unethical for a psychiatrist to render a professional opinion to the media about a public figure unless the psychiatrist has examined the person…”

According to the progressive outlet Raw Story, which takes this nonsense from Lee seriously, Dershowitz has complained to Yale:

Prominent Donald Trump supporter Alan Dershowitz reportedly complained to Yale University after forensic psychiatrist Dr. Bandy Lee suggested Trump supporters may have a “shared psychosis” with the president.

This claim is supported by a recent tweet from Lee herself:

Lee’s use of her position for such obviously partisan purposes is not only unethical, it calls into question the judgement of Yale which continues to employ her.

It also makes her look like the one with a mental health issue. At this point, I expect we’ll find her in a padded room someday, mumbling something about Trump being crazy.

More and more, I think psychiatry is nothing but college-accredited voodoo.

The spirit of the Soviet Union is alive and well, thanks to Comrade Lee.

Another 63,000,000 to be adjudicated crazy next week….

When I was in high school we required to volunteer at either the state “mental hospital” or the state psychiatric hospital our senior year. I chose the psychiatric hospital. Back then there was a saying that went “How do you tell the difference between the psychiatrists and the inmates? The psychiatrists are the ones in white coats.”

    starride in reply to Granny. | January 12, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    I have a friend that was a Sheriff working at the jail for the criminally insane in Michigan. He always said that the only way to survive working there was to be crazier than the inmates.

      Worked for a vending machine company years ago. I had to go into a mental hospital to fill the machines – workers area only – for a guy taking vacation.
      Guy showing me the route had to walk by a locked ward with people wanting to get out. Guy would tell them for $1 he’d let them go (he had no key, they had no money). I thought it was kind of mean, but he’d had the route for years and while it was jarring to me he probably was inured to it all.
      I assume once they shut the state institution down the dems registered them all and most ran for office.

      “How do you tell the difference between the psychiatrists and the inmates? The psychiatrists are the ones in white coats.”

      the psychiartrist profession is heavily populated with professionals that got into the profession because they themselves had issues.

      A good example is Christy Blassey Ford. Her delusions made her believe things that never happened (I dont think she intentionally lied – only that her issues made her believe her story)

      The delusions of Ms. Lee has similar issues.

Yale Psychiatrist Issues Diagnosis of “Psychotic”…

She’s looking into a mirror.

The fact that they have to constantly put this crazy bitch on the fake news networks tells you how pathetic this is. If they had anybody actually reputable, they’d be using them.

The only thing she’s demonstrating is how low the standards are to license a psychiatrist.

By refusing to publicly censure this insanity, they demonstrate how low they have fallen and compromise their entire profession.

From distant observation, Dr. Bandy appears to be something of a Butch. Gotta get some pink hair before being taken seriously.

This crazy bitch is an embarrassment to herself, and an embarrassment to Yale. One would think that Yale would tell her to knock it off, as it reflects poorly on the institution.

This dumb broad has been mouthing her dumb shtick for years now. Total nutcase…

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Erasmus65. | January 12, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    I’ve only been aware of her since her long-distance diagnosis of CINCUS. Are there other examples that were in the news?

    Thank you.

This is a rather dim woman, who does well in tests, but nothing else.

She has whored herself out to the leftist crooks enriching themselves at the expense of hapless students.

Toyko Rose at least played good music.

Lee is a disgrace to academia and to the medical profession.

She is joy bayhar with diploma. Or maybe bette midler.

    At least Tokyo Rose played good music.

    who does well in tests, but nothing else.

    We don’t even know that.

    Don’t forget the magical powers of Affirmative Action.

    Maybe half of all professional positions in the US are now filled by what are basically political appointees.

      Edward in reply to tom_swift. | January 13, 2020 at 10:01 am

      Asians do not qualify for Affirmative Action programs, are not an “Official Minority” and obviously can suffer from the mental illness known as Trump Derangement Syndrome as do other people in the country.

        artichoke in reply to Edward. | January 14, 2020 at 2:50 am

        I think that depends on which Asians.
        Chinese get negative affirmative action.
        Vietnamese and Samoans probably get favorable consideration, the latter especially because they’re not highly represented among successful students.
        Malaysians and Indonesians would probably get favorable consideration. BHO, from Indonesia, did.

Not satisfied with a mere projection, Lee invokes liberal license to indulge progressive (i.e. monotonic) projections. #HateLovesAbortion

To Professor Jacobson and the folks at LI:

Why even publish this garbage? This creature is obviously a nut, a certified ivy league [sic] nut at that.

Like so many folks of her ilk, she wears the imprimatur of being an expert in her field. But she don’t know what she don’t know.

One word, Bandy honey: BOLLOCKS!

    There are competing philosophies about repeating the poison of people like lee.

    I’d rather see her laughed at. She is a joke, after all. So is yale.

    Tiki in reply to tiger66. | January 12, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    In a way I agree with you. How many Americans are aware of this woman in the first place? 400,000 leftist-coastals? She’s insignificant and exercises no power over us. If
    Alan Dershowitz feels like he’s been slandered then he should pursue legal means or have Yale sanction the Maoist-psychiatrist. It’s his business, not mine.

    Regarding publishing – niche politics is grist for the internet mill.

    tom_swift in reply to tiger66. | January 13, 2020 at 3:12 am

    If Yale is seriously cranking out shit nowadays, that’s something everyone in the world should know.

    ‘Way back when there were still a few dinosaurs left and I was considering schools, I’d have wanted to know if one was in a death-spiral before I bought a ticket.

Sorry A.D., but anybody who voted for Hillary has got to be crazy.

I can’t find a medical license for her in Connecticut. Not sure how she remains on the Yale faculty. She doesn’t seem to have a license in NY or Massachusetts where she was a house officer either. Her California license has not been renewed for over 5 years.

Did she call Dershowitz specifically, psychotic? Or just “all Trump followers”?

Because she seems to be edging dangerously close to slander/libel, never mind unethical.

    Milhouse in reply to daniel_ream. | January 13, 2020 at 8:33 am

    Both. She wrote: “Alan Dershowitz’s employing the odd use of ‘perfect’ — not even a synonym — might be dismissed as ordinary influence in most contexts. However, given the severity and spread of ‘shared psychosis’ among just about all of Donald Trump’s followers, a different scenario is more likely.

    “Which scenario? That he has wholly taken on Trump’s symptoms by contagion. There is even proof: his bravado toward his opponent with a question about his own sex life — in a way that is irrelevant to the actual lawsuit — shows the same grandiosity and delusional-level impunity.

    “Also identical is the level of lack of empathy, of remorse, and of consideration of consequences (until some accountability comes from the outside — at which time he is likely to lash out equally).”

    So she’s diagnosed Dershowitz specifically, based on symptoms she specified, as “likely” to have caught the same “shared psychosis” that “just about all of Donald Trump’s followers” have caught from Trump.

    But no, that is not even close to defamation, because it is an opinion that relies only on public information. She explicitly does not claim to have examined Trump, Dershowitz, or any other Trump follower, and thus to have unstated information about them on which her diagnosis is based.

    Opinions are by definition not defamatory. If I were to write that “Daniel Ream is a terrible human being”, you could not sue me for the statement itself, because it doesn’t state any facts, it’s just an opinion. However, if a reasonable reader would assume that I must have some facts on which my opinion is based, then you could sue me for implying those facts, even though I never explicitly stated them. My defense could either be that I didn’t imply any facts, or that the facts I implied are true. Or, if you were a public figure, that I thought they were at least somewhat likely to be true. In this case there are no implied facts; Lee openly stated the true facts on which she based her absurd opinion. Thus there is no defamation.

      Isn’t there the actual fact that she is a licensed mental health professional and the implied fact that her publicly stated opinion is accurate because it is within the scope of her professional expertise? She certainly appears to be trading on that expertise to publicly trash Dershowitz and the average reader of her remarks would therefore assume they are valid.

        Milhouse in reply to jb4. | January 13, 2020 at 10:12 am

        No. Being a professional doesn’t give her access to secret facts; it just means her opinions derived from known facts are presumed to be more reliable than those of most people. They’re still opinions, not factual statements, and therefore by definition cannot ever be defamatory.

          Barry in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2020 at 1:12 pm

          Uh huh, And your opinion of the Sandmann lawsuit against CNN was ?

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 14, 2020 at 1:57 am

          That he could only sue for false factual statements, if any; merely calling him a racist was not actionable. And that he would have to prove the damage he suffered was caused by those false factual statements, and not by the characterization of him as a racist. That was and remains correct.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 14, 2020 at 1:58 am

          I’d like to know, though, are you seriously disputing anything I wrote?! Because it’s all black letter law.

          jakee308 in reply to Milhouse. | January 14, 2020 at 2:03 am

          I believe Dershowitz thinks you’re wrong. Her being a psychiatric professional (her claim and the nets claim) makes her Opinion (yes it’s an opinion but it’s a Professional Opinion) if untrue defamatory. He’s pursuing as of now a claim with one or more of the professional orgs. that she’s a member of and registering an ethical complaint. She’s going to have to pay in some way or shut up or both.

          Barry in reply to Milhouse. | January 14, 2020 at 11:40 am

          I dispute everything you write. What’s “black letter law” to you is not to others that have sharper legal minds than you have shown. You often insist that there can be no other opinion when respected legal minds differ.

          You have an opinion, often wrong. I think you’re wrong here just as you were about Sandmann. I understand your opinion and disagree with it. It’s not as black and white as you state.

I don’t see the problem. The ethics rule is an internal matter in support of their appearance of being experts, a PR move on their behalf.

Nobody believed the lady when it first came out. Another derangement nut, is all anybody thought.

An ethics attack on her is about the weakest thing you could do.

    rhhardin in reply to rhhardin. | January 12, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    She may, for all anybody knows, be a good psychiatrist with clients. Listen and suggest, all that stuff. Just not good with politics, but she’s a woman, and that’s the problem there. Trump is from Mars and she’s from Venus.

Bandy X. Lee tweeted:

Alan Dershowitz has now taken his grievance to the deans of Yale Law School and Yale School of Medicine. Fortunately, I am less afraid of power than I am of truth. I have considered the costs; if he expects me to cower and to compromise, I will not.

I think that Dershowitz is unconcerned about Dr. Lee’s fears or lack of them. I think his concern is that Yale is sufficiently foolish and irresponsible to pay any money to a dingbat such as Dr. Lee.

    oldgoat36 in reply to Ira. | January 12, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    Hmmm, interesting, she is less afraid of power than she is of truth. That right there tells you she knows she is bat S**t crazy but knows she is crazy, she is afraid of that truth getting out more than power from the insane people who hired her waking up to the need to fire her.
    Heh. This woman obviously went into this field to try to lay to rest the numerous demons in her own head. Too bad they have only gotten worse.

    jb4 in reply to Ira. | January 12, 2020 at 11:57 pm

    Might Dershowitz be setting Yale up as an accessory in a slander/libel lawsuit if they do nothing about her? They have money.

      Milhouse in reply to jb4. | January 13, 2020 at 8:35 am

      No, because there is no possible defamation case. See my explanation earlier to Daniel Ream.

I got a “no record found” when I searched the CT database. A year or so ago when she was in the “news” a similar search showed that her license renewal was “pending”.

    She let her CT and CA licenses lapse several years ago, because she didn’t need them. Her NY license is current.

      My, my, Milhouse, you know the woman so well…. I take it you know with first-hand knowledge, that she has no patients in Connecticut, etc., and her patients are ONLY in New York….

      Law requires you have a medical license for each state you practice in.

      This woman sounds like Pochahantas — practicing law in Connecticut while teaching there, but without a license. Illegal.

        Milhouse in reply to Close The Fed. | January 13, 2020 at 8:39 am

        She doesn’t see many patients, if any at all. Her work is almost all consulting, for which she needs no license. So there was no point in keeping up three separate licenses, when all she needs in order to continue calling herself a licensed psychiatrist is one.

          Close The Fed in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2020 at 8:40 am

          “She doesn’t see many patients, if any at all.”

          For licensing purposes, if you see ONE patient in a state, gotta have it.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2020 at 10:14 am

          And she has one — in NY. Are you alleging that she sees patients in other states? On what basis are you alleging that? That’s a statement of fact, which you have no reason to believe is true, which means you’re defaming her.

      artichoke in reply to Milhouse. | January 14, 2020 at 2:44 am

      I recall also that CT licensing is tougher than NY in some way.

I’m surprised that the APA and/or someone in the Yale psychiatry dept. don’t speak out against this.

It’s not as if the reputation of psychiatry as being based on science is all that strong: the usual argument seems to be something like, “Well, in the past we were all quacks (although we said Freud and lobotomies were really real science). But, now it’s all different, now we offer real science-based medicine. So, you were right to not believe us then, but you should believe us now!

And then the institutions that claim to speak for the profession remain silent when someone who appears to be very well-credentialed offers her personal opinion as psychiatric “science”?

    “I’m surprised that the APA and/or someone in the Yale psychiatry dept. don’t speak out against this.”

    I’m not surprised at all. Academia is chock-full of left-wing bigots. Anything that gives power to socialism – including witch hunts, violence and terrorism – is not only acceptable but mandatory for all “tolerant” people. In their worldview if you are not using bike locks to cave in the skulls of “racists”, then you are one yourself. Professional organizations (and corporations) are downstream of academia, so it is not surprising they resemble the worst academia has to offer. Lee is not an aberration; she is what passes for mainstream in today’s educational institutions.

Is she licensed? Why isn’t the APA speaking out about this? If she’s not licensed, then she should be identified as such.

And obviously, a degree from Yale is no longer worth the paper that it’s printed on.

    Milhouse in reply to rochf. | January 13, 2020 at 2:01 am

    Yes, she is licensed, in NY. The APA is a private body, and she’s not required to agree with its opinions.

Close The Fed | January 12, 2020 at 7:20 pm

Physicians used to drain people’s blood trying to cure them, so I won’t hold the psychiatry profession’s lack of knowledge too strongly against them.

HOWEVER, you would think psychiatry would learn something from old time physicians, namely HUMILITY. So we have this unlicensed old bat diagnosing millions of people she’s never met and a couple of people she’s at least seen on television…. and proves to us humility isn’t part of her vocabulary, but that using the springboard of American free speech and our fabulous media technology is — so she, a “minority” benefiting from our system, appropriating our culture LEFT and RIGHT, gratuitously insults millions of Americans who LET HER STAY, and proves that Americans do indeed tolerate mental illness, defined as tolerance of this racket called “diversity.”

Sure lady, beat that drum. We know the game. Hope Dershowitz sues for slander/libel.

    Close The Fed in reply to Close The Fed. | January 12, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    I actually meant to write, that she proves Americans do indeed HAVE mental illness, defined as tolerance of this racket called “diversity.” We invite in foreigners who spit at us, smear us, insult us, insult our culture, our customs, every part of our way of life — it IS a mental illness that we tolerate her and those like her — Ilhan Omar anyone? The bronx bartender. Cenk what’s his name… Chakrabarti.

    Send these son of a bitches back home and let them spew hate and revolution there. We had a good life and could enjoy a joke until this mental illness descended upon America.

For as long as the APA refuses to speak up about this, I will consider Bandy Lee to be professing the opinion of the APA. Makes me wonder wth we need this ‘APA’ for, and reflects very poorly on all psychiatrists.

Close The Fed | January 12, 2020 at 7:30 pm

Oh, also, I would agree with the other poster, why is she given a platform here… except I understand this is Mike LaChance’s lane, media criticism….

I look at the photo and can’t decide whether Bandy Lee is male, female or just plain nuts.

Back in September I went to visit my 20 year old daughter at college on Parents Weekend. At lunch she and I were talking about her classes and I made the mistake of saying “… Psychology is not a hard science like Math or Physics…” She corrected me and we didn’t talk after that. After lunch she left me alone in her apartment and I eventually left. We haven’t really spoken since and I will probably be dead before she (assuming she does) comes to her senses.

My ex (her mom) has a background in psychology and social work, and I’ve seen the crap the NASW prints. They are all extremely biased bleeding heart liberals. And my kid has been indoctrinated. It just tears me up like you wouldn’t believe. 🙁

    Close The Fed in reply to WestRock. | January 12, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    West, I’m sorry to hear you and your daughter aren’t getting along at the moment.

    I want to address whether it is a “hard” science. I find it to be very much like the rest of medical science – some things it knows, some things it has no clue, but pretends to be completely knowledgeable (transsexuals being my pet favorite in this category), some things it’s learning about…

    I don’t want to throw this baby out with the bath water. As I have written here before, I have acquaintances that were neglected/molested/abused/tortured as children, and occasionally they find a therapist and forms of therapy that have provided genuine relief. But the progress in the field is uneven and is hindered by agendas.

    I will say, anyone who tells a person they should engage in self-mutilation rather than therapy for sexual identity confusion, definitely has an agenda, and it’s not improving the life of the confused person. http://www.MaleSurvivor.org has resources to help. EMDR therapy does help, but small doses, small doses….

    artichoke in reply to WestRock. | January 13, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    It’s easy to show that you’re right, in a way she cannot dispute. Surely her professors would agree with this:

    Physics makes many predictions that are right to 10 decimal places, all the time. Math makes conclusions based on pure logic.

    Psychology is happy if it’s right 55% of the time, and it may indeed be making a net positive contribution if it does so, but it is not at all like math or physics.

Most forensic shrinks make money on the side by testifying as expert witnesses in civil and criminal cases. It seems to me that she has shut that door on her career. Can you imagine how her credentials as an expert witness would be torn up under cross-examination?

“Is it correct that you diagnosed ……. as having ….. without ever having examined or even met them?” “Isn’t that unethical according to … on page …?” “How do you expect this court to accept your testimony as the truth when you have acted unethically in the past?”

    Milhouse in reply to OldProf2. | January 13, 2020 at 8:44 am

    On the contrary, she’s now a celebrity, and so long as there are no Trump supporters on the jury (or the case is being heard by a judge alone) they might be impressed by her testimony. After all, she was on TV. If confronted by the ethics question she has simply to say that she disagrees with the cited source and does not think what she did is at all unethical.

      artichoke in reply to Milhouse. | January 13, 2020 at 7:15 pm

      All she needs is one Trump-hater on the jury and she’ll not face criminal liability for what she’s doing. I don’t expect her to be locked up.

      I wonder if the licensing board in NY is a bunch of far left radicals that approve this sort of thing. Aren’t there any enforceable norms about bringing the profession of psychiatry into disrepute?

        Milhouse in reply to artichoke. | January 14, 2020 at 2:02 am

        Huh? What on earth are you rambling about now? Please pay attention. Why would she ever be facing criminal liability? And how would one Trump-hater on the jury help her? To be useful as an expert witness she’d need all of the jurors to be Trump-haters, or at least not Trump supporters. Or not to have a jury.

        Milhouse in reply to artichoke. | January 14, 2020 at 2:03 am

        Aren’t there any enforceable norms about bringing the profession of psychiatry into disrepute?

        I doubt it.

“Text of APA’s Ethics Annotation Known as ‘Goldwater Rule’

7. 3. On occasion psychiatrists are asked for an opinion about an individual who is in the light of public attention or who has disclosed information about himself/herself through public media. In such circumstances, a psychiatrist may share with the public his or her expertise about psychiatric issues in general. However, it is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement.

    TX-rifraph in reply to robert_g. | January 13, 2020 at 6:17 am

    A standard that is not enforced is meaningless.

    What is interesting is that the APA and its members do not care that it is meaningless. Doe they think their profession is a fraud and, if challenged, she would expose the fraud? Why are they afraid of her?

    Milhouse in reply to robert_g. | January 13, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Is she even a member of the APA? If not, why should she care about its opinions? But either way, she has expressly addressed that rule and said she disagrees with it. She’s entitled to her opinion.

Bandy Lee is a certified nut. Yale is a school that has nuts teaching students. And the psychiatric profession are all nuts if they don’t speak up about the nut.

    “Nuts” is relative. She’s a corrupt POS selling her soul to the left for a little attention.

    Her contribution to the field of mental health is likely zero, and her earning capacity reflected that. To pick up some more money, she’s sold out our society.

Another interesting thought – – – Generally speaking, it’s a violation of HIPAA to disclose someone’s medical condition, if he’s a patients of yours….

Just wondering if there isn’t some new law to be made, to apply it against this old bat- NOT that HIPAA is a good law, but live by the sword, die by the sword. Sure she loves all the federal regulations in the world. They’re her brass knuckles.

    Milhouse in reply to Close The Fed. | January 13, 2020 at 8:49 am

    HIPAA bans disclosing private information about ones patients, because one has a duty to those patients to keep their private information private.

    Not only is Lee not talking about her patients, and therefore has no duty to them, she also has no private information about them, so she can’t possibly be disclosing any. All she knows about them is what everyone knows.

    There can’t be any law against repeating public information, or against expressing an opinion, no matter how bizarre, that is based entirely upon public information. The first amendment protects such speech.

I’ve heard her interviewed several times, now, including by people like Mark Levin.

She’s a nutjob.

      We’re not standing on professional expertise to express that sort of opinion. She’s not posting under a pseudonym, and she doesn’t distance herself from professional judgment by saying it’s just a personal opinion. She drags Yale Medical School into this by using their name.

      but there is a Code of Ethics. A difference without significance. She’s still an unethical twerp. Using her expertise as cover to malign another in public, who she and others clearly hate. Sounds like clear cut, late stage TDS. IANAP

Dr. Lee, Welcome back to the USSR.

The Dhimmi-crats have politicized every heretofore apolitical/non-political sphere of society and industry, with their infantile, vindictive and totalitarian ethos and slander tactics, so, why not the practice of medicine?

At least these reprobates are being consistent in their approach to make all facets of American society conform to their vile orthodoxies.

Dershowitz should sue this twit for slander because, her behavior supports such a cause of action. This assertion of “psychosis” is a falsehood, made with malicious intent and knowledge of its manifest falsity. And, it obviously damages Dershowitz’s reputation, as patently ridiculous as the slander is.

    Wrong. The “diagnosis” is an opinion, which does not imply unstated facts, and is therefore not actionable.

      Barry in reply to Milhouse. | January 14, 2020 at 11:48 am

      Right.

      You’re wrong, over and over.

      guyjones in reply to Milhouse. | January 15, 2020 at 6:18 am

      You’re such a perpetually childish gadfly, always stating your opinion as being totally infallible. As if you’re so much more sagacious than everyone. It’s silly and tiresome.

      This is a medical professional proffering a diagnosis that is allegedly backed by her professional medical expertise — it is more than a mere opinion from a layperson. The distinction lies in the fact that many people will construe a professional’s assertion as having a grounding in a clinical analysis — whether or not such an analysis has taken place. So, the professional is exploiting her professional credentials and background to offer an “opinion” that has the trappings of medical legitimacy. That makes it more than an innocuous opinion.

To unhinged leftists like Lee, anyone who opposes their ideas is either racist or crazy.

I work in Mental Health and it is not uncommon for people to get into psychiatry because of their own struggles and that is what I see here. I can imagine the others who she says are in agreement with here have their own struggles because level-headed people who work in Mental Health don’t make statements like this or endorse removing a President based on what is publicly available about Trump which isn’t anything that can be categorized clinically as arrogant or overconfident.

    I’ve heard that about psychology. But psychiatrists first have to get into and get through medical school, and doctors are usually fairly practical and level headed (in my experience) as people who have come through those experiences successfully.

    I’m pretty shocked by this Bandy X. Lee character.

Yale Medical School embarrasses itself by having this person, who is at best on the hairy edge of professional ethics, on its teaching staff.

What a Sino-communist sleeper sounds and looks like when activated.

This unethical Quack has finally gone after the wrong person.

Milhouse, I am safe and secure in the knowledge I am not a member of any professional body with ethical standards to uphold.

She is bats**t cray cray.

You know the funny thing? I have to use a walker. My hips and knees are shot. So I am basically walking on my hands.

And I need a shoulder replacement.

The pain makes me laugh.

I strongly encourage Mr Dershowitz to file a complaint against Lee’s license, and a formal complaint with Yale.

Her “diagnosis” is illegal, unethical, and certainly demands action to stop her from further beating people over the head with her state-sanctioned credentials.

    MsPony65 in reply to MsPony65. | January 18, 2020 at 9:00 am

    Correction: I see that Mr Dershowitz did, indeed, bring his concerns to Yale.

    I’d best go do my homework to see if Lee is licensed to practice.

    Apologies to all.
