The hashtag #DiagnoseTrump has been getting attention on Twitter but not the way California congresswoman Karen Bass intended it to. Bass launched a petition calling for a mental health examination of Donald Trump using the hashtag: #DiagnoseTrump.
Her effort is wrong for many reasons. People living with mental health issues aren’t necessarily narcissistic, racist, misogynist, egomaniacs. Donald Trump is. Comparing people with mental illness to a demagogue and a thug is an insult.
