After covering Donald Trump’s INSANE campaign for months, the media has finally come to the conclusion that the time has come for a mental health professional to take a look at the Republican presidential nominee, as suggested on Monday by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski during a discussion about the Republican nominee’s mental health.
The “Morning Joe”, the host devoted a significant portion of its opening block to discussing Trump’s mental health, a day after President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe described him as a “psychopath.”
Brzezinski, seizing upon Plouffe’s remark, argues that “it’s time to hear from somebody in the mental health community, to look at this person who has been on television for months and to give us a sense of what we have going on here.”
She added: “When you see someone who you think has problems, you know it. And there’s not anybody at this table who doesn’t think he has some sort of problem. Let’s ask the questions. Let’s do this at this point. Let’s set up someone and ask the … questions.”
Former Ted Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler, who was participating in the segment, said that “all candidates should have full mental health evaluations as a condition of service.”
“Here’s the thing, though. We look at mental health much differently than we did in year’s past. We don’t require people to use firearms and serve in the military with mental health issues and we do require it, well I don’t know if we require it, but we always have seen presidential medical records,” Tyler said. “Why not, why not a mental health evaluation?”
