Melania Trump has broken silence about a sensitive subject that has dogged her husband and this may open up all questions and re-ignite the debate about mental health and also Trump’s repealing of the Affordable Care act that helped many people with mental health problems to seek help.
Trump will definitely not be happy about Melania’s comments as he himself has been dogged by questions about his mental health and well being. Many Psychologists and U.S doctors have claimed that Trump is afflicted with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (N.P.D) and if left untreated it will be so harmful and detrimental to his health and to those around him.
Melania’s statement on mental health was not directed at Trump at all. Instead she was defending Trump when Kathy Griffins, a comedian appeared on stage with a bloodied dummy that looked like Trump’s decapitated head. (it’s so graphic to be published on here but those who want to see it can search on Google)
Kathy Griffin has issued a full apology and her contract to do comedy sketches for CNN has been terminated.
Melania Trump the first lady said, “As a mother, wife and a human being, that photo is very disturbing. When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.”
Editor’s Note: Kathy Griffins took her right to free speech way too far. What she did was unacceptable, cruel and undignified. That is not a way to protest, not a way to exercise your right to free speech. Instead it is an abuse of free speech. However we commend Kathy Griffin for acknowledging her mistake and issuing a full heart felt apology. We also commend the first lady for her dignified response and her interest in speaking about mental health.
mental health is a very sensitive issue but this is the right time for the first lady to confront her husband on the issue of mental health and the Affordable Care Act that he repealed. We want to make sure that millions of Americans who may have mental health issues can have access to healthcare and counselling whether they have the financial means or not.
