Dem Rep.: There Are Republicans With Concerns About Trump’s Mental Fitness, But Won’t Say So

Congressman John Garamendi is one of the Democrats publicly expressing concerns about President Trump‘s mental fitness, and he claimed on CNN tonight there are Republicans who, in private, share that view.

Michael Wolff‘s new book Fire and Fury has put renewed attention on concerns about Trump’s fitness and just how much people around him share those concerns.

Per CNN “a dozen lawmakers” were briefed by a psychiatrist about Trump’s fitness last month, and she has been asked to speak to “additional lawmakers” this month.

Garamendi spoke Erin Burnett tonight about having “a crazy in the White House” and said this all is “downright frightening.”

Burnett noted how this “has to be bipartisan” and brought up the meeting this month, asking if he has any Republican colleagues with similar concerns.

He said, “They’re certainly not gonna say it.”

But when Burnett asked again, he said that yes, there are Republicans who agree, claiming it’s “key people” who are “shaking their heads and they’re going, ‘Oh my God, look what he did today.'”
