Dr. Bandy X. Lee, a psychology professor who met with over a dozen Democrat lawmakers in 2018 to discuss the mental health of the President, claims Hitler was actually a better person.
Lee took to social media to make the case that Hitler had several qualities making him more endearing than President Trump, including the assertion that he “improved the daily life of his followers.”
“Donald Trump is not an Adolf Hitler,” she tweeted. “At least Hitler improved the daily life of his followers, had discipline, and required more of himself to gain the respect of his followers.”
“Even with the same pathology, there are varying degrees of competence,” Bandy Lee added.
The Yale professor, who has appeared on networks such as CNN and MSNBC as a mental health expert, later deleted the tweet.

Dr. Bandy Lee Deletes Tweet Alleging Hitler Was Better Than Trump
Lee took her post down offering the following explanation:
Okay, I have taken it down, since it has upset so many people and was not provoking thought but the opposite. Of note, my statement was about how little Donald Trump believes he needs to do to retain his followership, NOT to minimize Adolf Hitler’s atrocities.
Lee is a co-author of the book, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.”
The publication is a collection of essays from other mental health professionals that discuss the “clear and present danger” of the President’s mental state.
Lee Has Been Criticized For Being Unprofessional Before
Lee has been criticized by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) for using “arm-chair psychiatry” to evaluate the President in the past.
The psychologist hosted private meetings with more than a dozen Democrat lawmakers and one Republican senator in 2018 to discuss Trump’s apparent ‘unraveling.’
Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-KY) claimed at the time that hosting Lee and other psychiatrists was important because “the president is manifesting dangerous behavior and the American people need to be alert to it.”

The APA tried to distance themselves from Lee, issuing a statement that read: “Arm-chair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical.”
But then, ‘unacceptable and unethical’ is what the radical left is all about.

It would be interesting to know what the Democrat lawmakers and Republican senator whose name most likely rhymes with ‘Bitt Bomney’ think about Lee comparing Hitler favorably to Trump think about her comments today.
Perhaps it’s she and they who need the mental health evaluation.
