    Here's the letter:
    http://cdn.cnn.com/cnn/2018/images/01/1 … 1.2018.pdf

    OKAY. Serious question. Leaving aside political affiliations or personal bias ...

    Shouldn't Trump's mental health be examined? If anything, based on his age. Shouldn't even Trump supporters be concerned that their 71 y/o president (and possible candidate for 2020) be healthy? That, from a political view. But shouldn't we all be concerned, or at least interested in his mental health, given his power and responsibilities?

    His "sometimes" erratic behavior, his episode slurring words, etc., make it more urgent. Just to be safe, no?

    Do you agree with the letter from the experts?

      Totally agree w/the letter in question.  Trump should undergo a psychiatric test.  In fact, he should undergo a SERIES of such tests.

      After Reagan, I think we should have understood the importance of verifying the Commander in Chief's ability to perform their duties or,at least, their competence to make major decisions concerning some duties,

      I think the problem lies with implementation of any such policy. Partisan politics makes it difficult to enforce a fair and unbiased evaluation process.

    If mental acuity tests are normal for someone having a health check at his age, then they should be done.  No question.

    If they are not normally done as part of a health check, then that's a different story.  But if I were President and there were such widespread allegations about my mental fitness, I would volunteer to undergo the tests to reassure the public.  I would see it as part of my duty to the country to stop the speculation.

      I think Trump will okay a mental examination right after he releases his income tax forms. tongue

      Why would you volunteer to have it done?  If it comes back with serious illness, and so does the second opinion, you're out of office and you don't think you should be.  If it comes back clean half the nation will declare it fake and that you must abdicate the office.

      Either way, what is, in your opinion, the most qualified person in the country to fill the office and do good things for the country, is to be removed from office because of taking an unnecessary and useless mental exam.  So why would you volunteer again?

        If I was told by several well known doctors I was a menace to the country, I'd be more than willing to step down. Of course, no matter how crazy DT acts his fans want him to stay in power. What's a little nuclear war as long as the bozo retains control?  I think I see your point. It's on top of your head! tongue

          LOL  He's been told by millions he's a danger.  Can't see any reason to give any more weight to comments from quacks that have no data to work from than from those millions.

          Of course, we also heard there would be a stock crash, another economic depression and that ever present nuclear war.  We even heard thousands say they would leave the country!  Just more "The sky is falling" from TDS sufferers.

            It also remains to be seen if any of these predictions will come to fruition. Trump's told over 2000 lies in his first year of office and his followers seem ignorant of the fact, or simply do not care if Trump lacks honesty or shows himself to be a bully and name caller when criticized.

            I hope those who support him hold him up as a role model for present and future generations of their families. They truly deserve to have Trumplike qualities in their daily lives. Are you one of those people, Dan? I don't think you are...

              Oh no - they've already failed to come true.  All those wonderful predictions were for the first couple of months of his presidency, or before even that.

              But yes, we WILL have another depression...some day.  We WILL have an economic collapse...some day, and earlier rather than later if liberals get their way.  Doubt we'll see thousands of rich people leave the country, though...unless liberals get their way and we TAX them out.

              Do I deserve Trump-like qualities?  Guess that depends on which qualities you refer to.  The ability to understand America and American citizens come first to the president?  The ability to stand up to a dictator?  The ability to produce higher employment and a better economy?  They would be nice, but no, I don't "deserve" most of them.

                But do you hold Trump up as a role model for your progeny, Dan?

                  Hmm.  Good question.  Compared to hero sports figures that spit on our flag?  Compared to famous political names that abuse women?  To big names that ignore the laws of the land?  To movie stars that say one thing while living another?  To politicians that care nothing for the nation or it's people, only their personal power?

                  Yes, IMO Trump is better than an awful lot of the people we virtually deify and worship.  Compared to the man in the street, struggling to feed his family and lead a decent, ethical and moral life, not so much.

                  How about you, Randy - would you prefer your children hero worship Trump of OJ Simpson?  Mike Tyson?  Some vapid movie star that talks a wonderful tale and lives something else?  The big name televangelists with their mansions and glitter, collecting millions from the plebes wanting to do God's work?  Who would YOU prefer your children worship?

                  Believe it or not (and I expect you will deny it) virtually everyone has good points and bad.  Including Donald Trump.

                    If those you mentioned are the best folks to compare Trump to, then I can see why you adore him, Dan. Can you name me another person who lies as much as he does? According to factual evidence, that is. Unlike you, I have no respect for pathological liars no matter what their position in life.

                    Note: I could have played the race card in this response as you seem to choose mainly black people in your comparison to DT, but then, Trump fans seem to do this this often for some reason. tongue
