WND Again Whines People Are Doing to Trump What It Did to Obama (And Hillary)
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In an anonymously written Jan. 17 article, WorldNetDaily complains that the "mainstream media" have "declared open season on the president’s health, claiming the physician must be lying about it."

Among those complaints:

As WND reported, without ever having examined Trump, psychological professionals have called the president “psychotic,” “narcissistic,” “paranoid,” “hypomanic,” “emotionally unstable,” “delusional” and “psychologically isolated” and claimed he has a  “dangerous mental illness.” One physician suggested Trump could be suffering from an untreated sexually transmitted disease known as neurosyphilis.

And one psychiatrist who claimed to have briefed more than a dozen U.S. lawmakers on Trump’s mental state – demanding an “emergency” evaluation and even restraint by force of the president – may not even have a license in her home state of Connecticut.

As we've pointed out, WND made many of these same complaints about President Obama declaring him to be an "unhinged" "reckless" "bombastic" "psychopath." WND managing editor David Kupelian devoted an entire 2015 column to portraying Obama as a "delusional" "malignant narcissistic" "sociopath." WND columnist Gina Loudon even argued that Obama was a "psychopath" on the level of Hitler and Pol Pot.

Yes, WND is projecting again.

WND also whined that the media "routinely ignored and downplayed former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s physical collapse, uncontrollable coughing fits and self-reported memory failure" and that "the mainstream media called reports of Hillary’s declining state 'conspiracy theories' and even demanded news outlets stop talking about the issue."

Because that's pretty much what they were. WND fed those conspiracy theories, largely in an attempt to distract from questions about Trump's health, and even called in Dolly Kyle Browning -- not a medical expert -- to opinion on Hillary's health.
