    No "is" is part of the question. Ergo not a question about if he has it at all. You have already concluded he has it thus is already struggling. The only question you put forward is the level of his struggle.

    That's right.

    I would have hoped that you would have sympathy for them, since you chimed in with an opinion about ethical obligations when you apparently had no qualifications to make that conclusion.

    And good thing, too, since in most professional associations, it's a breach of the code of ethics to accuse someone of an ethical breach when no breach actually occurred.

    Sorry you have such trouble with English grammar. Is that why you declined to answer my question in post 38?

    "Exactly what was Trump diagnosed with?"
    or is it because there is no diagnosis? :D Here, you don't even have to write out an answer, just check off the appropriate box.

    ☐ "I have trouble with English grammar"
    ☐ "There is no diagnosis"

    I do not need qualification as I cited the mainstream US organization of the specific field. I cited their view. Try again.

    Wrong as per my citation. Try again.

    And I pointed out your OP title. You took the article and made a conclusion of a medical problem. Try again.

    You messed up with the OP title. Your problem.

    Maybe next time read what you cite. The Goldwater rule applies to psychiatrists specifically.

    Alzheimer falls into that field. Try again.

    The rule is still about methods and ethnics. It is applicable to other medical fields.

    I didn't run away. I pointed out the OP title already concludes Trump has Alzheimer. You tried to play word games but are horrible at it as you ignored what "struggle with" means. I just didn't give you the answer you wanted to hear nor caved to your failed attempt to change the meaning of the OP. Your problem. Try again.

    Sorry, but even I find that a lame justification. When someone on the right does that to a progressive politician it is unacceptable.

    Is Obama a secret Muslim?

    Is Clinton a Lesbian?

    Is Sanders a Communist?

    I have seen all of these, and the question mark doesn’t make the accusation any less odious.




    Tump is mentally and psychologically unfit to hold any office. I have no problem saying that and standing by it. No “question” about it.

    I remember Fox News running the same babble over Hillary's tongue sore, her falling down, coughing, need to drink water a lot, etc. If the posters were consistent they must hold the view that Hillary was not mentally fit for office. Ergo a wash of 2016.

    All of this just an argument from authority or false authority in order to fit their bias and TDS. Your view included.

    And dismissing an idea with those three letters is a particularly pathetic ad hominem.

    You have no argument ergo you misapplied the fallacy. You are no expert yet you have no issues making a conclusion about Trump. You own point is turning in your hand. Try again son. I just used your own position against you. You refuted your own point. Impressive.

    If you can't remember where your parents or your kids were born, there is something wrong. That's not splitting hairs.

    If taken by itself, it's no big deal. When taken together with everything else we know, it's another nail in the coffin.

    Nah it's just petty hair splitting and you know it. So desperate to find something to try and hang the bad orange man. Honestly all it does is make the left look pathetic and weak.

    I didn't say "psychiatry;" I said "psychiatrists." Please read posts before you reply to them.

    No, it isn't.

    The whole point of professional codes of ethics is that licensed professionals take on duties above and beyond those of the general public.

    Do you think that @Skwim is a licensed psychiatrist?

    The title of one certified in the field I said.... Try again.


    Wrong.

    The rule in question is about not using the methods which includes an examination of the patient then making a conclusion about their health in politics to the public. It is a giant argument from authority used to manipulate politics.

    No. Ergo hence why I said it is just a layman's conclusion backed by another layman's conclusion. It is still an ethical problem as people are using medical terms thus are framing an argument while have no ability to make such a diagnosis.

    Several years ago John McCain had a problem remembering what he was going to say. Tr The Trump Sheeples cheered
    Sheeples are pathetic and weak.

    Donald mocks a heavyset man who he believes is a protester. Shouting, “That guy has got a serious weight problem. Go home, get some exercise!” The sheeples laugh and roar their approval.

    Later, the Trump fan brushed it off while heaping praise on Trump.

    “Everything is good,” Dawson exclaimed. “I love the guy. He is the best thing that ever happened to this country.”

    What else would you expect from Trump Sheeles. What else would we expect from you.
