Agreed!

Labelling or remotely diagnosing President Trump as 'crazy', 'unhinged', 'warped', 'narcissistic', 'paranoid', 'schizophrenic', and/or suffering from 'Narcissistic Personality Disorder',

Is greatly damaging to the campaigns dedicated to reducing the stigma of mental illness, and the safety and wellbeing of us suffering from real and properly diagnosed conditions, why?
Because it doesn't stop at these diagnoses. It is then stipulated that because of this President Trump is unable to carry out a role of responsibility, and is dangerous and unpredictable, a liability to himself, everybody, everything around him. Liable to explosive, unprofessional and unpredictable outbursts and in any case is delusional and a pathological liar.
This by extension is incorrectly and quite wrongly applied to all suffering from any mental illness.

These so-called professionals would do well to abide by the reminders issued recently and reread the "Goldwater Rule", this is first published in the American Psychiatric Association's code of ethics and states:

"On occasion psychiatrists are asked for an opinion about an individual who is in the light of public attention or who has disclosed information about himself/herself through public media. In such circumstances, a psychiatrist may share with the public his or her expertise about psychiatric issues in general. However, it is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement."

If you don't like/hate President Trump and think he's a dangerous lying idiot with a complex, who's only in it for what he can get himself and shouldn't be in charge of a paper bag, let a lone a country. Then please have the guts to come right out and say it, rather than hide behind a stigma inducing subjective, unproven, unprofessional remote diagnosis of mental illness.
