Top psychiatrist: Trump’s ‘mental impairment’ poses danger to world

FRANCE 24 English

What if you knew a truth about someone that harboured dangers of such magnitude that it could be the key to future human survival? What if that “someone” happened to be the President of the United States? And what if you were told to keep silent about it? In a controversial new book, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump”, Yale psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee and 27 colleagues argue that their “duty to warn” the world about Trump’s mental health overrides any professional gag order.

Dr. Lee speaks to FRANCE 24’s Douglas Herbert about Donald Trump’s state of mind, and why remaining silent just wasn’t an option

“Dangerous moment” as senior scientists warn lockdown is being eased too quickly – BBC News

Published on May 30, 2020

The UK is “at a dangerous moment” according to England’s deputy chief medical officer, who urged people not to abuse the new more relaxed lockdown restrictions.

Professor Van Tam reminded people of how rapidly the disease can spread through the population. People are being tempted out by the warm weather and there’s evidence that large numbers are ignoring the social distancing rules.

Some scientists, including members of the government’s own SAGE expert advisory group, have warned that the lockdown is being eased too fast, risking a second peak of coronavirus infections and deaths.

Time Asks Donald Trump’s Golf Clubs to Remove Phony Magazine Cover

Although Donald Trump has repeatedly appeared on the cover of Time Magazine in the last year, the company is asking that a framed cover image of Trump be taken down from the walls of several golf clubs.

That’s because the cover hanging in several Trump Organization clubs is a phony, a Time spokesperson confirmed to NBC News.

The March 1, 2009, cover was first identified as fake by The Washington Post in a story published on Tuesday, and several markers give away that the cover isn’t genuine.1

The magazine’s red border is thinner on the Trump cover than a real cover and is missing a thin, white border on the inside of the red. A barcode in the right-hand corner is the same as a design tutorial created by a Peruvian designer, according to the Post.

Headlines on a real cover appear across the top of the page. The fake cover’s headlines appear down the right side.

Another factor complicating the authenticity of the Trump cover — Time didn’t publish a March 1, 2009, cover, according to the Post. It published a cover featuring actress Kate Winslet the following day.

The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least five of President Trump’s clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.

But that wasn’t true.

The Time cover is a fake.

There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover.
