Since Yale University psychology professor Bandy Lee called President Donald Trump “mentally impaired,” the Democratic Party started the dirtiest campaign. Naturally, they exploited these remarks in order to build a narrative that suggests the president of the United States is unfit to run the office. However, their huge efforts could have been demolished, since a recent report reveals that Lee had an unpleasant secret. Surprisingly, she appears to lack a valid license to practice psychiatry in Connecticut, her home state.
Over the last few days, this woman made the headlines when she decided to make what she called a “diagnosis” of President Trump. Believe it or not, she claimed that he was suffering from a delicate “mental impairment” that would completely disqualify him from the most powerful office in the world.
Far from checking her backgrounds, the mainstream media immediately utilized her remarks in order to draw the most horrendous picture. News outlets such as CNN and MSNBC started to run debates about whether the president of the United States was mentally fit to run this position properly. In fact, this has been the main topic this week, to the point where even conservative figure Ben Shapiro had to come out and provide some comments about it.
As reported by the Conservative Daily Post, a couple of days after Lee made those comments the American Psychiatric Association made the unexpected. Far from defending the Yale professor, they released a statement warning members of its profession to avoid making public diagnoses of public figures without the proper medical exam. Of course, they were referring to what she did with President Trump.
Without mentioning Lee, the America Psychiatric Association wrote that they call for an end to psychiatrists providing their professional opinion in the media about individuals whom they haven’t examined yet. In fact, the American Psychiatric Association was quite specific in their statement, since they pointed out that no one should make this move either in books or during cable news appearances or even in social media.
Finally, the American Psychiatric Association pointed out in their statement that the use of this profession as a political tool is not only unacceptable, but also quite unethical. Naturally, this was a major hit against Lee, who literally committed all of these actions by providing a diagnosis of President Trump without the proper examinations.
Surprisingly, far from staying out of the spotlight after this statement, Lee and her colleague decided to respond in the most aggressive way. As a matter of fact, they even used left-leaning magazine Politico as the channel of their message, knowing that a decent number of the liberal public would read it.
Both Lee and her colleague wrote a piece in which they claimed it was “perfectly OK to question the president´s mental state.” Of course, they stated that the reason why they had the right to do this was only due to their profession.
While Lee had her moment of glory, to the point where she even met with some lawmakers on Capitol Hill to talk about the issue, she´s now facing scrutiny. The reason? Because of bombshell allegations that she´s not even licensed to practice psychology in her home state of Connecticut.
According to Campus Reform, the state records show that Lee´s “physician/surgeon” license actually expired on May 31, 2015. In addition, the state records point out that the application for reinstatement has been pending since that moment. Fortunately, the publication was able to produce every single detail of her license in order to back up this controversial claim.
As reported by Campus Reform, things are even worse for Lee. Believe it or not, in addition to the pending physician´s license, her “controlled substance registration for practitioner” license is also lapsed, having expired 11 months ago. Basically, the woman who made the outrageous claim that President Trump was mentally impaired is not legally able to prescribe any medication as a medical practitioner.
Remember the Psychiatry Professor Bandy Lee, Who Violated Psychiatry Ethics by Calling the President “Mentally Impaired”? It appears She May Not Have A License To Practice Psychiatry! A number of Anti-Trump Democrat Politicians were hoodwinked by her. ? https://t.co/Y9DourWvY2

Soon after this damaging report, Lee decided to respond Campus Reform´s inquiries. However, far from taking the same aggressive stance as she did after the statement of the American Psychiatric Association, Lee actually showed a very weak one.
Believe it or not, she simply said that she only needs “one license.” Of course, she refused to point out precisely what license she has –if she has any- or in which state she is registered.
While her downfall represents the end of the mainstream media´s narrative of the president´s mental problems, not a single news outlet has reported her situation.
