Stop your armchair psychoanalysis of Trump

Once more, for emphasis: You should not trust armchair mental health analyses, nor should you trust the people making them.

Perhaps you think we’re getting hung up on the niceties of polite society. Not really. We merely agree with the American Psychiatric Association’s position that this sort of “analysis” is unethical and irresponsible. Moreover, we believe leveraging credentialed expertise against political opponents is a dangerous road we don’t want to take. Trump’s not-normal presidency is no excuse for the normalization of this dangerous behavior.

So let’s not normalize it.
