Following a bizarre and contentious hour-long press conference, a Republican Senator vented to CNN’s John King in a text message implying President Donald Trump needed psychiatric help.

“I got a text from a couple of Democrats during the thing, who of course are not inclined to like him,” King said Thursday, “But I got a text from a Republican senator who said in this text, ‘He should do this with a therapist, not on live television.’”

King never named the senator, but hinted later in the program that he was a critic of Donald Trump’s from very early on. Unfortunately for the anonymous senator, Trump has already indicated his wariness of psychiatry.
