I had thought all presidents were examined for mental fitness after Reagan. Came to find out that isn't true.

So when was Trump given a mental health evaluation, where he sat down with a fully qualified liscenced mental health person and a statement on record of such?

Contrary to what many are saying and thinking, the only time a doctor would even look at neurological health, is if there is a concern for such, and then it usually is brought up to said doctor by someone who would intimately know the person. Beyond that, and I have this on experience, doctors would not go into doing any sort of neurological testing or even looking at mental health, unless there is just cause that warrants such.

And did Obama forced his doctor to type up a note that was full of errors or non medical terminology?

Or have the doctors name wrong?

I don't think any mental health specialists are qualified to accurately gauge whether a President is mentally fit to stay in office. If that President was so obviously crazy, Congress would remove him/her ASAP. No psychiatric exam is needed.

Many great men and women of history would be classified as "unstable" by today's arrogant psychiatric community.

Oh, so you saw Obama's birth certificate?

This is not about Obama, or the entire birther issue. Obama is not President, he left office after serving 8 years. So why bring him up now, save to distract from the question and issue now.

The topic here is on Trump, presidential health and mental health. And that the current laws do not demand that the president of the USA have a mental health evaluation, even though there is precedent in the past where such may be a good idea, to ensure that the man is mentally capable of handling the stresses of the job.

What you failed to grasp is that the birther issue is the same red herring argument this mental state thing is. Just a way to smear a person. And FYI Hillary's campaign introduced the birther issue.

Correct, the mental health profession has lost all credibility.


The diagnosis of mental illness is always a weapon ~ Dr. Jeffrey Schaler

The 'mentally ill' card is nothing more than a political tool used to silence and suppress those who openly express beliefs that contradict official dogma...


Deep state has co-opted the psychiatric profession which is largely owned and controlled by Big Pharma, using its Diagnostic Statistical Manual’s unlimited mental disorders as yet another weapon of mass destruction playbook for diabolical population control purposes.

MSM Fake News vs. the Truth

“Biological psychiatry is a total fraud.” — Fred Baughman, “Psychiatry” has NO, and I mean ZERO medical basis whatsoever.

Psychiatry is a Total Fraud

How could legislators get rid of a president who appalls them but who has not committed high crimes and misdemeanors, the conventional legal grounds for impeachment? By claiming he is mentally ill. These claims have nothing to do with scientific medicine. Political science regularly masquerades as objective science.

Very unpopular ones are generally considered “mentally ill.” The criteria for mental illness in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association are sufficiently broad that anyone can be so diagnosed by a psychologist or psychiatrist as having a psychiatric disorder, especially from a distance.

Political disagreement becomes a bigger problem

And what you are grasping is that there is precedent for the President to have a mental health evaluation every year.

Older people, usually those about Trump age, maybe a bit younger, around 60, start to develop a wide range of physical and mental problems at that stage of life. Dementia, is never really seen or diagnosed, until the person has gone through it for a few years. And while Trump may be physically fit, the question of his mental capacity is of concern and one that we should be concerned with and think about. Several times in the past, presidents have either had mental health issues, due to the stress of the job, or it had developed in the course of their life and it started to affect them.

So while no the man is not required for such, perhaps it is a good idea for him to have such, that way it would prevent a few things, that have been suggested, and talked about both in public and in private.

so did the dr that examined potus recommend one?
no he did not because he did not feel one was needed
do you know better than a physician?
no you do not

Indeed. There are countless jobs that require an applicant to past a psychological test and psycho-analysis to be considered for the position.
Many jobs require certain qualities that cannot be measured on a resume or in an interview - such self-motivation, agreeableness, emotional stability, self-control, ability to handle stress, interpersonal skills, impulse control, judgement, reasonable courage, honesty and integrity, dependability and so on and so forth.
Careers like police (and other law enforcement), military, pilots, some teaching positions and astronauts are require applicants to be mentally fit... (I'm sure we can all come up with several dozen more examples.)

Yet, what could be considered one of the hardest and possibly the most stressful positions on the planet basically allows anyone to apply and take office?
Just imagine the kind of tests, selection criteria and training a CIA, NSA, General or - to use a hyperbole - an Area 51 employee has to go through before they are allowed anywhere near the term employee. Yet, an elderly businessman from Queens can walk right into a position senior to all those people? Somehow, it just doesn't seem right, does it?

Trump’s first full presidential physical exam, explained
...
But the White House told reporters that the biggest question about the 71-year-old president’s health — the state of his mind — would not be checked in Friday’s physical. And though the president’s physician is expected to share some of the results of the exam on Tuesday, January 16, the public is not likely to learn anything new about his physical health either. The presidential physical exam is best understood as political theater — a show of the president’s vigor and fitness — not an opportunity to reveal medical truths.
...


On a side note though:



...
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that Jackson would compile detailed results over the long weekend and appear at Tuesday’s press briefing to take questions.

Undergoing this physical is voluntary, and Trump can pick and choose what the public hears about his health.
...

So we'll see.

Or did you mean this doctor?

Sigh.
Did you bother to read my post? Did I say anything about me knowing better than any medical professional?
What I did was I gave you facts about what the "presidential physical health examination" entails.

POTUS isnt so much a job as a duly elected position.

If the people speak, youd need a good reason to ignore them

Sort of.

You arent hire. Being elected is sort of holy ground....you dont tread on the voice of the people.

Which is a big part of the fight with Trump.

Nonetheless, it should be assumed that a nutjob would be fleshed out by the people. Alomg with the need to not politicize psychology. Lets face it: its not a science and is really not fully accepted by a lot of folks because if this. To use a pseudoscience as a political weapon is unconscionable.
