Dr. Leana Wen, a CNN medical analyst and the former president of Planned Parenthood, said on Sunday that President Donald Trump should be forced to undergo a “psychiatric evaluation” because he decided “to go for a car ride” while recovering from the coronavirus.
If @realDonaldTrump were my patient, in unstable condition + contagious illness, & he suddenly left the hospital to go for a car ride that endangers himself & others:
I’d call security to restrain him then perform a psychiatric evaluation to examine his decision-making capacity.

Earlier Sunday, Trump, who was admitted to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment, was seen riding in a motorcade and waving at supporters who were camped out in front of the hospital.
Trump and Secret Service agents were seen wearing masks inside the vehicles, but liberals quickly accused the president of endangering his agents’ well-being.
Deputy White House Press Secretary Judd Deere, however, said that the last-minute motorcade ride followed all of the “appropriate precautions”
He also noted that it had been “cleared by the medical team as safe.”
Critics were quick to point out that Wen has more important things to think about than what Trump does with his recovery time:
You also dismembered unborn babies for profit, so if you want to talk about judgment & decision-making capacity, maybe we should start with that.

I see you live in Baltimore.
If Baltimore were my city and I saw how democratic policies over the last 50 years have led to the destruction and decay of the city,
I’d spend more time cleaning up trash — like I have — & less time tweeting.

You’re the only one who needs a psychiatric evaluation.
