Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) thinks President Donald Trump needs a full-time psychiatrist. Lieu said he plans to file a bill as early as next week that would require an in-house psychiatrist at the White House.
“I’m looking at it from the perspective of, if there are questions about the mental health of the president of the United States, what may be the best way to get the president treatment?” Lieu told the Huffington Post. “We’re now in the 21st century. Mental health is just as important as physical health,” he added.

Lieu even took to Twitter over the weekend with his concerns over Trump’s “mental health.”
Last 24 hrs on Twitter, @realDonaldTrump went on rant about “death & destruction,” “FAKE NEWS,” & “evil.” Should he get mental health exam?

“His disconnection from the truth is incredibly disturbing,” Lieu went on. “When you add on top of that his stifling of dissent, his attacks on the free press and his attacks on the legitimacy of judiciary, that then takes us down the road toward authoritarianism. That’s why I’ve concluded he is a danger to the republic.”
