WTF! Why hasn't he been civilly committed?

Just catching up on the s-show after 6 hours away.
He meets criteria for civil commitment in Maryland.
Summary per NAMI site:
"Maryland law allows involuntary admission to a hospital when a person: has a mental disorder and needs inpatient care or treatment and presents a danger to the life or safety of the person or others and is unable or unwilling to be admitted voluntarily and there is no available less restrictive form of intervention ..."

Yes, I know all the reasons they have not done this to the " Commander in Chief".
And that pot with the frog is boiling over, now

1. Yes, I wanted him arrested for attempted murder

but committing him will do in a pinch.

2. The problem is that there are no responsible adults around him

and anyone who is a responsible adult doesn't dare do anything, or is powerless to act.

There is nothing restraining this lunatic from doing whatever he wants, whenever he wants.

3. He poses a danger to himself or others, clearly meeting the standard.

4. You need two medical doctors to sign off on a commitment.

If Trump's anything like my father, he can bullshit and fool at least one doctor.

5. Rules vary state by state

I think most docs are well aware of how sick he is already-- especially in the DC area.
