Yale fires psychiatry professor who declared Trump and his supporters insane

Some sanity in the Ivy League?

According to the Washington Examiner:

Yale University fired a professor after she made remarks about former President Donald Trump’s mental health, a recently filed lawsuit reveals.

The lawsuit, filed against the Ivy League school by psychiatrist Bandy Lee, alleges that her firing last year was an “unlawful termination … due to her exercise of free speech about the dangers of Donald Trump’s presidency.” Lee’s complaint came after a Jan. 2020 tweet in which she declared that “just about all” of Trump’s followers suffer from a “shared psychosis.”

Lee added that Alan Dershowitz, one of Trump’s top legal advisers at the time, had “wholly taken on Trump’s symptoms by contagion.” Dershowitz responded by asking Yale to investigate Lee for a violation of the ethics rules of the American Psychiatric Association. Dershowitz contended that because Lee had never met him, she was unable to evaluate his mental health.

Dershowitz, according to court filings, wrote that the psychiatrist had “publicly ‘diagnosed’ me as ‘psychotic,’ based on my legal and political views, and without ever examining or even meeting me.”

Lee later responded that she would not “cower” or “compromise” on her opinions. Lee was fired several months later, following a Yale investigation.

  1. Good for Alan Dershowitz for filing the Complaint which eventually led to her firing. She just gave the psychiatric profession a bad name. There are many who believe psychiatry is a bunch of hokey-pokey. She just further solidified that impression of psychiatrists. Hilary called us “deplorables”; this psychiatrist called us “psychosis” which, per the dictionary, means “severe mental disorder”.

    These people need to look at themselves in a mirror. Hopefully the mirror will not be a trump hater or a mirror that suffers from a psychiatric disorder called “Trump Derangement Disorder”

    PS It’s a horrifying thought to now know that this woman was teaching her type of “psychiatry’ to impressionable, young students. No wonder Yale students graduate and join the ranks of far left extremism.

  2. Glad Yale University fired this deranged woman, who hated Trump with a vengeance and tried everything she could to destroy his reputation during the re-election campaign. It’s super liberal kooky professors like Brandy Lee who must be dismissed from the profession as mentally ill themselves.

  3. I agree with you, Alice and JG that it’s horrifying that this lady was teaching the next generation of psychiatry “experts.” The government now also has weaponized the psych evaluation process against those who disagree with them, using “mental illness” accusations as a pretext for yanking security clearances from folks. It’s a Soviet style Playbook, now employed by some corrupt individuals here in America. The Soviets threw dissidents to mental institutions reasoning that if you disagree with the totalitarian socialist regime, you must be a lunatic.
