A petition to diagnose Donald Trump has gained thousands of signatures so far. The petition can be found at Change.org and was launched by Rep Karen Bass (D-CA). Portions of the petition below:
Donald Trump is dangerous for our country. His impulsiveness and lack of control over his own emotions are of concern. It is our patriotic duty to raise the question of his mental stability to be the commander in chief and leader of the free world. Mr. Trump appears to exhibit all the symptoms of the mental disorder Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Mental health professionals need to come forward and urge the Republican party to insist that their nominee has an evaluation to determine his mental fitness for the job. It is entirely possible that some individuals with NPD can successfully function in many careers, but not the Presidency of the United States. We deserve to have the greatest understanding of Mr. Trump’s mental health status before we head to the polls on November 8th, 2016. #DiagnoseTrump
Not that it will amount to much, but that’s a pretty novel idea for sure. So far the petition has gained 11674 signatures of the 15 thousand required by the petition.
