Brandy X. Lee, the purported psychiatric goddess from Yale University who has become a fixture at Democrat gatherings for her long-distance diagnosis of Trump may rue the day that she decided to abandon academia to become a leader of #theResistance.
Lee’s book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” became a key piece of the left’s scheme to convince enough people that President Trump was crazy so as to remove him from office and made her into a star with daffy Dems.
Lee was reportedly privately meeting with dozens of Democrats to make the case that based on her professional opinion – as well as her liberal moonbat colleagues – that Trump was a candidate to to ousted under the 25th Amendment.
She also became a prized guest on the anti-Trump cable news networks but her problems soon began.
First, she canceled her Twitter account and faced admonishment for her blatant violation of the “Goldwater Rule” established by the American Psychiatric Association to prevent exactly the type of quackery that she was trying to pull off on Trump.

With Lee being the obvious subject, the APA issued a statement that:
“We at the APA call for an end to psychiatrists providing professional opinions in the media about public figures whom they have not examined, whether it be on cable news appearances, books, or in social media,” the group wrote. “Arm-chair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical.”
The story then took an even worse turn for Ms. Lee – it appears that she does not even have a valid license to practice medicine in her home state.

Via Campus Reform “Records show psych prof who ‘diagnosed’ Trump lacks license”:
Yale University psychology professor Bandy Lee has deleted her Twitter account amid mounting allegations that she is not licensed in her home state of Connecticut.
Accusations have been circulating on Twitter that the prominent Yale professor, known for her public diagnosis of President Donald Trump as having a “mental impairment” and who recently met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss the issue, isn’t actually a licensed psychiatrist.
In fact, Campus Reform discovered that according to the State of Connecticut, Lee’s “physician/surgeon” license expired in 2015, and her application for reinstatement has been “pending” ever since.
In response to Campus Reform’s inquiry on the matter, Lee simply stated that “I need only one license,” though she has yet to elaborate on precisely which license that is, and, according to the state in which she resides, she allegedly has none.
Without mentioning Lee specifically, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) put out a recent statement in which it condemned the diagnoses of public officials whom psychiatrists have not personally examined, invoking what is commonly referred to as the Goldwater Rule.
Democrats won’t be bothered by such a trivial matter as not having a valid license in her state of residence just as they weren’t troubled by promoting the work of truth-challenged hack Michael Wolff and his sloppy collection of gossip “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” which has also been used to bolster their case for removing Trump from office under the 25th Amendment.
