Ralph spends the whole hour with Dr. Bandy X. Lee, psychiatrist from the Yale School of Medicine and editor of “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.” 


Dr. Bandy Lee is a forensic psychiatrist on the faculty of Yale School of Medicine, who is an expert on violence.  Dr. Lee has served as Director of Research for the Center for the Study of Violence and has consulted with governments to set up violence prevention programs both in the U.S. and internationally. She has also been teaching students studying to be public defenders and to become asylum attorneys at Yale Law School since 2003.  Today, we’re going to talk to her about the recent book she edited The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.“

“I think the first remedy we have to do urgently is to remove him from the presidency.  It is a very pathology inducing, disease spreading situation, apart from the dangers of a nuclear holocaust or devastating wars, which are actually very real possibilities – by the way – for someone who is so divorced from reality and so attracted to violence as a solution for the way he feels inside.”

– Dr. Bandy Lee
