BIPOLAR OR SCHIZOPHRENIA?
Justin Trudeau is an eccentric, known for wearing a variety of ‘theme’ socks, donning the native garb of countries he visits… a kind of crazy guy.
Crazy is one thing. Mental illness is another.
The Canadian prime minister’s mood swings over the years have gyrated from racist shenanigans in black face, to wild excitement, to crying jags, to his latest insanity of treating his own citizens like third-world garbage.
And this image is one of many that graphically illustrated to a shocked world Trudeau’s latest madness:
MARGARET TRUDEAU’S ILLNESS
Justin’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, has battled bipolar disorder for years.
Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness characterized by extreme mood swings, from manic excitement to deep depression.
As the much younger wife of former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau, Maggie’s mood swings ranged from clinical depression to wild partying in the 1970s at notorious hotspots like New York’s Studio 54.
Maggie Trudeau is alleged to have had several extra-marital affairs, including the likes of Mick Jagger.
We do not begrudge Maggie Trudeau’s fun in the 1970s —many of us went wild during that crazy sex and drugs decade.
But Margaret Trudeau’s bipolar disorder now becomes a serious matter as it relates to her 50-year-old son Justin, who just happens to run the lives of 38 million Canadians.
Bipolar disorder has a strong genetic component, and having a first-degree relative with the condition puts a person at high risk of inheriting it.
But it could be much worse than anyone realizes. Bipolar disorder shares many symptoms with the much more serious mental illness of schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia seem like they have lost touch with reality.
Justin Trudeau’s actions of late appear to indicate that he has indeed lost touch with reality. A rather dangerous condition for the “leader” of a country.
