Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu plans to propose a bill forcing a psychiatrist into the White House

AOL

As critics question President Donald Trump’s Twitter habits, executive actions and press conferences, one Democratic lawmaker is proposing one potential solution.

Representative Ted Lieu of California says he plans to introduce a bill which would require a psychiatrist in the White House.

Lieu argues that in addition to having a regular physician, presidents should have access to mental health care — given the strain of the job.  

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Lieu said, “it is not normal for the President of the United States, within 24 hours, to write about death and destruction and fake news and evil. The most troubling aspect of this is it is very clear he has a disconnection from the truth.”

It’s unlikely such a bill will pass in a Republican-controlled Congress, but details of Trump’s health have remained an elusive topic.

Just last week Trump’s long-time physician said the President had been taking Propecia to sustain the amount of hair on his head which, although very rare, can have side effects ranging from impotence to memory loss.

At the age of 70, Trump is the oldest U.S. President to ever take office, but according to his doctor, he’s also the healthiest.

  1. “Lieu argues that in addition to having a regular physician, presidents should have access to mental health care…”

    Anathema to the ‘program’.

    “At the age of 70, Trump is the oldest U.S. President to ever take office, but according to his doctor, he’s also the healthiest.”

    Only as long as he does as ordered.
