Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University psychiatrist who called Donald Trump mentally incapacitated for work in 2017, made slight concerns about Joe Biden's mental health this week
A Yale University psychiatrist who called Donald Trump mentally incapacitated for work has now expressed slight concern about Joe Biden – insisting that the leading Democratic candidate by 2020 would be a considerably safer choice than the current president.
Almost two years after her damn assessment of Trump's mental health made headlines, Dr. Bandy Lee was asked about her opinion on Biden in the broadcast of conservative radio presenter Mark Levin Tuesday.
Lee said she hadn't studied Biden, but his mental health looks like it's not that perfect & # 39 ;.
She quickly added: & # 39; But compared to Donald Trump, he is much better off. & # 39;
& # 39; I believe he has the insight and integrity to hand over tasks when he becomes incapacitated for work & # 39 ;, said Lee.
& # 39; I'm not sure I can say the same about Donald Trump. & # 39;

Biden, who is the second oldest contender in the 2020 race at 76, behind 77-year-old Bernie Sanders, told a crowd on the campaign track this week: & # 39; I want to be clear, I'm not going crazy. & # 39 ;
He is slowly losing ground in the busy Democratic field, while a series of verbal glances raised the concern that he might have finished his prime-out.
A survey released by Monmouth University this week indicated that Biden has fallen into a triple bond with Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Another recent poll by Politico and Morning Consult showed Biden with a strong lead, giving Trump – who refers to the former VP as & # 39; Crazy Joe & # 39; – were seven points ahead.

During Tuesday's radio program, Levin Lee, who wrote the book The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, challenged 37 psychiatrists and psychiatric experts to judge a president's assessment and wonder if it was impartial.
& # 39; It has nothing to do with the political party. In the political discourse you give both parties equal control, & said Lee. & # 39; But in medicine, medical neutrality means that you apply the same standards regardless of which political party – and if the person meets the standards, you make the assessment. & # 39;
Levin replied: & # 39; But you don't do that [neutral acting]. I've read your book, Doctor, show me the list of your standards … No offense, you sound like a palm reader. I ask you where are the standards? & # 39;
He accused the psychiatrist, a self-described conservative and liberal who voted for Hillary Clinton, of making assumptions about the president that could not be used in a legitimate diagnosis.

& # 39; Of course you knew a scientific diagnosis, you can't do that remotely, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; You have not made any diagnosis. & # 39;
Lee pushed back and claimed that it is an accepted practice to make diagnoses without actually talking to a patient.
& # 39; It is scientifically proven that a remote diagnosis is more accurate for certain circumstances, without a personal interview, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Today, diagnoses are based on … external observations – only observing the person … in a personal interview, the person … can sometimes mislead you. & # 39;
She also insisted that she never claimed to have made an official diagnosis for Trump.
& # 39; I have never been diagnosed, & # 39; Lee said. & # 39; I am not interested in the diagnosis, I am not interested in the personal mental health of Donald Trump. I am only interested in the effects on public health. & # 39;
Levin shot back: & # 39; This is bilingual. You do not have any scientific diagnosis from which you can analyze the mental health of the President of the United States. & # 39;
