Trump's Mental Health Challenged By Political Colleagues
A “few” Republican senators are concerned of President Trump's mental health, according to one Democratic colleague. “It’s not the majority of them,” said Sen. Al Franken. “It’s a few.” In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union", the senator reveals that some political colleagues are questioning whether the president has mental health issues.
“We all have this suspicion that – you know, that he’s not – he lies a lot,” Sen. Franken says. “And, you know, that is not the norm for a president of the United States, or, actually, for a human being.” Franken dishes out more of what GOP colleagues reveal behind closed doors by saying that some have said that the president is not right mentally, while some colleagues are even harsher. This revelation drew plenty of laughs.
In a more serious note, according to The Hill, Franken adds that he has not heard a lot of good things said about the president. Most of what he has heard are great concern about Trump's mental health. The senator first revealed what his political colleagues think about Trump on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher"
Additionally, Franken calls Trump's repeated attacks of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, where the president called the senator "Pocahontas", as racist. Trump revived his moniker of the Massachusetts senator during a meeting with a handful of senators on Thursday. The president reportedly told the senator, “Pocahontas is now the face of your party" in light of Warren’s claim of Native American heritage, the New York Post reports.
Franken said in the interview that he would have spoken up if he was in the meeting. He would have told the president to stop doing this as it is unacceptable, and that it doesn’t serve anybody. BIll Maher, host of the show, is a former comedian but has evolved into one of the toughest critics of the current administration, has also implied on the condition of Trump's mental health .
