Why Won’t the Media Discuss Trump’s Mental Instability?

Description

Donald Trump’s rose garden speech last week announcing his emergency declaration over the “crisis” at the southern border was rambling, incoherent, and unhinged: in short, everything we’ve come to expect from the 45th president of the United States. And yet journalists treat him like a normal politician instead of stating the obvious: Donald Trump is mentally unfit for the presidency. Almost half the country agrees, and plenty of republicans, including Sen. Bob Corker and Jeb Bush, have expressed concern about his mental stability. To discuss the situation and where we go from here, Mehdi Hasan is joined by Dr. Bandy X. Lee, a psychiatrist at the Yale School of Medicine, and by Trump’s biographer, David Cay Johnston.

Not defending trump, but all the ageist opinions from mehdi really caught me off guard. I have 30 years, but I don't see age as a reason to attack a person. Attack there lack of morals and values. Trump is lacking in many different ways. His age is irrelevant. This episode felt a bit prejudice in that way

Kevin McCracken There certainly is a bias in this episode and double standard (especially since Bernie Sanders is 77, compared to Trump's 72), but the 25th amendment exists for a reason. This is just a certain perspective Mehdi is giving, which because he's the only one giving is, of course is a bias. This is some scary s*** though, regardless of someone's age, this President has some more serious problems...
