US Congresswoman wants Psychiatric evaluation of Donald Trump.

Rep. Karen Bass created a petition because she believes Trump
 has Narcissistic Personality Disorder.Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s mental health (or lack thereof) has been discussed and speculated about by the media plenty of times. Now one politician wants an official diagnosis.
Karen Bass, a Democratic congresswoman representing California, launched her social media-friendly “#DiagnoseTrump” petition on earlier this week. It currently has just under 15,000 signees.
The petition makes the case that Trump fits all nine criteria to diagnose someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (only five are needed), making him unfit to lead the country.
“It is entirely possible that some individuals with NPD can successfully function in many careers,” Bass writes. “But not the Presidency of the United States.”
Responses to the petition have been… varied. Advocates for the mentally ill are, understandably, not pleased to be associated with Trump in this manner or to have their mental issues reduced to political weapons. Also, people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder probably don’t appreciate being told that they are unfit to rule.

It's NOT because they're actually concerned about potential presidents' MH. It's bc they're weaponizing ableist bigotry against Trump.
