S. E. Cupp (almost) gets it right!

WEDNESDAY, MAY 6, 2020

Trump very sick, unwell:
Last evening, we watched our personal hero, Kaitlin Collins, being interviewed on CNN.

We were surprised by the gratitude we felt.

We'd seen Collins behave like an actual journalist at several of President Trump's most recent gong-show "briefings." As we watched her interviewed last night, we felt a true sense of admiration for the way we'd seen her perform.

This morning, along comes S. E. Cupp, a columnist at the New York Daily News. Her new column isn't as perfectly correct as Collins' recent performances were. But Cupp comes pretty darn close.

All across the upper-end press, journalists have agreed not to say what they actually think about President Donald J. Trump. As of this morning, Cupp and the Daily News have walked away from that "gentleman's agreement."

Her column carries the headline shown below. Others should go there too:
The president is not well: The umpteenth reminders of Trump’s mental state and the consequences
Cupp comes very close today to saying what she means. She almost says that President Trump seems to be mentally ill in some way, or cognitively impaired.

She does say that he seems to need professional help. And in her closing paragraph, she refers to him as "our very sick president."

In our view, comparing Trump to a "mentally unstable" child is a bit of a dodge on Cupp's part. We also think she could have been a bit more clear in her use of language.

We'd like to see Dr. Bandy X. Lee directly acknowledged, with her analysis described in straightforward professional terms. A columnist doesn't have to say she agrees with Lee's diagnosis of Trump. But it would be constructive and accurate to report that sensible, high-ranking specialists think he's dangerously disordered.

We think Cupp could have done a bit better. But he's pushing in the right direction when she writes copy like this:
CUPP (5/6/20): It’s a frightening commentary on the slow normalization of this completely abnormal behavior that we can greet the undeniable deterioration of the president of the United States with mere shrugs. And the only concerns from his inner circle seem not to be about the mental instability itself, but the political ramifications of it being exposed in daily press briefings.

[...]

The giant orange elephant in the room isn’t that Trump’s impaired judgment might cost him the election; it’s that it may well have already cost American lives.

Waiting until November to get Trump out of harm’s way is the only real option we have. The Constitution’s 25th Amendment, designed to remove a president who is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” is inarguably applicable but politically impossible.

So, like worried parents, we’ll just wait anxiously, hope the worst doesn’t happen and that there’s a light at the end of this very dark tunnel. Until then, who knows what our very sick president will do next?
Cupp says Trump is "very sick." She says he may well be “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

She calls his behavior "completely abnormal." She describes an "undeniable deterioration."

We'd like to see her say it in a slightly more straightforward way—this president seems to be suffering from a major psychiatric, psychological or cognitive disorder. That said, she's rowing the boat in the right direction—though that does take her upstream.

Elsewhere, the children refuse to visit this topic. Each day, they pretend to be shocked, shocked by Trump's most recent statement or behavior.

They keep clucking at this daily parade like it's a moral issue. They simply won't say that he seems to be disordered—that he may well be some dangerous version of "mentally ill."

  3. Somerby keeps wanting people to call Trump mentally ill, meanwhile, serious people are calling for Trump to resign because of his failure to lead during this crisis.

    Mental illness is nebulous, but Trump's manifest failures are in public view. More people are saying "enough!" and calling for Trump to leave office and let someone competent take over. There is no time to waste as the death toll rises.

    Meanwhile Somerby plays at holding Trump accountable, while urging pity for Trump instead of a solution to the nation's problems.

    Somerby is nowhere near getting this "perfectly correct"! He needs to get on board the only real way of dealing with COVID-19 -- getting rid of the doofus at the helm.

  5. Many "sensible, high-ranking specialists" consider Bandy Lee out of line because she hasn't personally assessed Trump and thus cannot diagnose him. Her opinion is just one among many without such an examination of Trump.

    1. This is untrue. Read her parody of this:

      Imagine saying: “A plumber cannot tell you anything about plumbing unless he examines your problem”; “A plumber should not speak about a plumbing issue” [but those who do not know anything about it can]; “You already know you have a plumbing problem [and so why call a plumber?].”
      https://twitter.com/BandyXLee1/status/1257994239297884160

      Accepting such absurd conditions of downgrading expertise is a part of the dangerous normalization process.

    2. It doesn't matter what her opinion is about this. The ethics of the profession are that you cannot diagnose someone without examining them. This prohibition exists to protect patients from consequences that are potentially a lot worse than bad plumbing.

    4. All the more reason to focus on his behavior, not his psyche. Lee should be using the political process, not violating the rules of her own profession.

      Delete
    5. She is focused on his behavior. The entire focus is on his behavior. His behavior is batshit nuts. Injecting light into people? “No, the coronavirus won’t become a pandemic. Not at all.”?

      ???

      He's insane or dumb as hell. Whatever, get him out of here. He clearly is not
      ready for the big league.

      Delete
    6. @3:19 Dr. Lee's diagnosis is not based on any psychiatric test or any discussion of psychiatric matters. All she knows is how he talks in public. So, do you think a plumber who listened to all of Trump's public statements could make a diagnosis of the White House plumbing problems?

      Delete
    7. The plumber could listen to Trump and diagnose him. It's a typical case he sees every day.

      He's full of shit.

      I mean really, “No, the coronavirus won’t become a pandemic. Not at all." ?????? Trump is a total mess.

    8. “No, the coronavirus won’t become a pandemic. Not at all."

    9. Trump has always had major drawbacks whether it be the many, many, many years when he was a Democrat, an Independent or now that he calls himself a Republican in name. The biggest issue is incompetence - obvious to the entire world now that he has forever destroyed America by fumbling the coronavirus epidemic, downplaying it, saying ridiculous things, minimizing it, not ordering any PPP until mid-March (!!!!), even after it had been expected and predicted for years. He is so incompetent he may not have even been aware it was expected and widely predicted all over the world for years. But his vast, seemingly endless incompetence unfortunately is born out of greed, envy and pride. That is the sad part. That is why he will continue to drive the country into the ground. He's too proud to admit his mistakes. Too insecure to live up to his historical failure. I hope he is enjoying this particular moment, the precious few months between the time he made his huge error and the time when it hits the American people hard driving so, so many millions into poverty which will turn the gullible die-hards against him most likely. Who knows? But the damage is done, the storm is coming and a hard rain is gonna fall.

      (Which is entirely in keeping with his disastrous record as a businessman.)

      Delete
    10. Fate did hand Trump a tremendous opportunity to be a great president, a great man and leave a deep mark in the history books which ironically is probably exactly what his ego deeply desires.

      Unfortunately, he let his chance fall through his surprisingly tiny hands and now the damage is done.

      Of course now the degree of coldness and hostility history will bestow upon the insolent and ineffective upstart from Queens
      can hardly be understated.

  7. At least two components have been identified and dissociated in studies in regards to inhibitory control: interference suppression, responsible for controlling interference by resisting irrelevant or misleading information, and response inhibition, referring to withholding a response or overriding an ongoing behavior. Poor error awareness and self-monitoring undermine an individual’s ability to inhibit inadequate responses and change course of action. In non-social contexts, an individual depends on his own cognition to regulate his mistakes. In social contexts, however, there are many social cues that should help that individual to perceive his mistakes and inhibit inadequate responses. The processes involved in perceiving and interpreting those social cues are arguably part of a self-protection system (SPS). Individuals with ADHD not only present impulsive behaviors in social contexts, but also have difficulty perceiving their inadequate responses and overriding ongoing actions toward more appropriate ones.

    1. In Trump's case, he may not have received social cues when he behaved inappropriately due to his wealth. His stint in military school should have helped with the ADHD because it would be a structured environment in which right and wrong are clearly delineated in a set of rules applied to all (hopefully). The SPS would produce the narcissism Somerby keeps talking about.

    How does Somerby know what journalists actually think?

    Oh, that’s right; he’s a mind reader.

    Meanwhile, he keeps undermining his own thesis by showing his readers examples of upper-end journalists who think like he wants them to.
