If only I had an accredited psychiatrist to tell me this, I might take it seriously.

New campaign to impeach Trump "Paid for by Tom Steyer"

Megadonor Tom Steyer launches TV ad campaign for Trump impeachment
Quote:
Political mega-donor Tom Steyer is funding an eight-figure TV ad campaign to “demand that elected officials take a stand” on impeaching President Trump.

“A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less, and today people in Congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger,” Steyer says in the ad, which directs viewers to a new NeedToImpeach website.

The TV spot will be supplemented by a seven-figure social media buy.
The ad calls Trump a "clear and present danger".


I signed the petition. All they wanted was my email address and zip code so far.

I don’t see any claims about mental illness at the website.

Nothing wrong with a fundraiser wanting your email address and zip code.

No, in the ad he focused on the clear and present danger part of the issue.

I think by now if people don't recognize this man's obsession with himself is pathologic, they are in denial.

"Clear and present danger." Like he's in a Tom Clancy novel.

I'll believe his self regard is pathological when someone documents the clinical method that supports the diagnosis.

The "concerned professionals" worried about Trump's "dangerous mental condition" haven't been very effective in gathering serious impeachment steam? No problem, just bring out the big guns: "concerned (and rich activist) citizens" investing throwing away $10 million to place ads about the "clear and present danger" of Trump.

This was never anything BUT a political attack -something mental health professionals should never have gotten involved in. Before you argue that Tom Steyer's ads aren't related to the OP . . . then why the heck was it posted in this thread?

I thought it was sad when the right devolved into all those Obama attacks. This is absolutely no different.

Is clear and present danger a high crime or a misdemeanor?

That’s your opinion, yes. We read you loud and clear.

I agree that some people, good people, have a pathological obsession with him.
