Psychiatrists James Gilligan, Robert Jay Lifton and Bandy Lee discuss the moral and civic "duty to warn" America of the symptoms and potential dangerousness of President Donald Trump. The urgent observations and questions of concerned citizens: What is wrong with him? What are the potentially relevant diagnoses? supersedes professional neutrality and not discussing the issue at all.
