Axl Rose Just Responded to White House Claims about Trump’s Mental Health

After President Donald Trump appeared to threaten and make light of nuclear war with North Korea on Twitter this week, there was a renewed focus on the president’s mental health.

More than 100 mental health professionals signed onto a statement written by a Yale University psychiatrist who said she was “deeply concerned” about Trump’s mental “unraveling.”

This same psychologist was asked to provide a briefing to lawmakers from both parties in Washington regarding the president’s mental stability, as more and more people begin to wonder whether it will be necessary to invoke the 25th Amendment in order to replace Trump.

Also this week, an NBC reporter asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about Trump’s mental fitness in light of his escalation of tensions with North Korea via social media, but she deflected the question.

On Thursday, Sanders said such questions were “disgraceful and laughable.”

“If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there, wouldn’t have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen,” Sanders said.

But that response did not fly with one of rock and roll’s biggest stars, who did not mince words when it came to his opinion of the Trump administration.

“Along with several other condescending adjectives the current WH has no room to call virtually anyone disgraceful,” Axl Rose, the singer of 80’s rock band Guns n’ Roses, tweeted on Thursday. “The WH is the current US gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful.”

The inquiries into Trump’s mental health were renewed this week after Trump made comments about the size of the White House’s “nuclear button” and referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as “little rocket man” on Twitter.

The author of a forthcoming book about the Trump White House also revealed Trump’s constant repetitions of random statements and opinions that became tweets and his struggles to recognize close friends following his inauguration.
