This comment is interesting. It actually shows how much members of the public blindly trust in the “science of psychiatry” and need “good and ethical psychiatrists”, i.e. people with MD degrees in psychiatry to “warn the public”. You wouldn’t have needed shrinks to predict things of this nature. I take no sides in the US political debate, but just from a psychiatry standpoint, what if it was someone like Bernie Sanders (or whichever candidate you like) in Trump’s place and the “good and ethical shrinks” were warning you about his ideology or policies which may be abhorrent to some, and the APA were defending him? You’d then say the APA are ethical and the others are rotten. The fact is, your political interests are your own (and that applies to everyone else), and you AND other people can make up your own mind. This comment is very reminiscent of an article I read on Psychology Today, where the author was insistent that Trump be removed on the grounds of the tautological label of “Narcissistic Personality Disorder”. That’s nonsense. This is what happens when you start subsuming unwanted behaviours in medical-sounding jargon.
