Sean Hannity Guest Claims Donald Trump Is the ‘Most Sound-Minded’ President Ever—And Science Proves It

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Wednesday night, a frequent guest of the network said she’s written a book that uses science to prove why President Donald Trump is the exact opposite of the mentally unfit individual he has been portrayed as in a scathing new book by Bob Woodward and a New York Times editorial written anonymously by a senior official within the Trump administration.

“My book actually uses science and real data and true psychological theory to explain why it is quite possible that this president is the most sound-minded person to ever occupy the White House,” Gina Loudon said.

Loudon has two master's degrees and a Ph.D. in psychological fields and is the host of Youtoo America’s America Trends, a national TV show that discusses trending topics of the day.

Loudon is also a member of Trump’s 2020 Media Advisory Council. She’s been a longtime supporter of the president and often appears on cable news programs as a contributor.

“You are just—literally liberals' heads are going to explode at what you said,” Hannity told Loudon.  

“That’s the fun part of the madness,” Loudon added, “just watching them go crazy over the fact that he’s really pretty unphased by them and I believe that and I know him.”

The two went on to discuss another topic and did not dive into the specifics behind the science, data and psychological theory that Loudon said is in her book, Mad Politics: Keeping Your Sanity in a World Gone Crazy.

In a blistering New York Times op-ed published Wednesday by an anonymous senior Trump administration official, the author wrote that there is a “quiet resistance” within the administration where "unsung heroes" are battling "erratic behavior" and "choosing to put country first."

The senior official continued: “Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back. Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president.”

Trump has defended his mental stability in the past after critics have pointed to his frequent outbursts on Twitter and in-person as reasons for concern. The president said he is “like, really smart” and is a “very stable genius.”

Loudon received criticism last month for her appearance on CNN where she defended the current administration’s lack of diversity in official White House roles. She said past presidents have done “amazing” things for black people and minorities without including them in their administrations.

“You look back at our history, we have a pretty amazing history of overcoming slavery, of expanding civil rights, of women’s rights, and a lot of those things happened under American presidents who didn’t have any minorities at all in their White Houses," Loudon said. 

Critics of the Trump administration have long pointed to the lack of diversity among his top officials.

There were zero black officials remaining out of 48 senior White House officials after the dismissal of White-House-aide-turned-Trump-critic  Omarosa Manigault Newman, according to a CNN review. Few senior staff members were people of Latino, Asian or Arab descent.
