Trump Adviser Gina Loudon's Book Claims She Has a Ph.D. in Psychology. She Doesn't.

Gina Loudon, the Republican commentator and author, recently declared that she has scientific evidence that Donald Trump might be the “most sound-minded” president in history. It’s a claim that might carry more weight if her new book didn’t falsely describe her as having a doctorate in psychology.

Loudon, who worked as a surrogate for the Trump campaign and frequently appears on the airwaves to defend the president, obtained a Ph.D in a field called “human and organization systems” from an online school called Fielding Graduate University.

Loudon, 58, who often refers to herself as “Dr. Gina,” does not have a psychology degree or license.

But the author’s bio on the jacket of her new book, Mad Politics: Keeping Your Sanity in a World Gone Crazy—which contains theories that experts say have been dismissed by scientific research—states she has two masters’ degrees “as well as a Ph.D in psychology.”

The text on the front flap refers to her as “America’s favorite psychological expert,” and one of the blurbs inside gushes that she “has the depth of a credentialed psychoanalyst.”

Inside the book, Loudon—a member of Trump’s 2020 campaign Media Advisory Board—admits she does not have clinical training. “My gut instincts, which have nothing to do with my professional training, are pretty solid,” she writes.

2. Need a bundle of shingles, and some paint.

If those are her "bona fides" as "America's top psychological expert", I have a lot of new careers to start!!

7. Didn't Sebastian Gorka claim to have a doctorate ?

I seem to remember he falsely claimed to have a PhD. He insisted that people around him refer to him as "Dr. Gorka."

Also, some have claimed that Melania has a college degree too. She doesn't.

There was a time back in the day when we would have politely called this "academic dishonesty." Now their just fucking liars !

10. Gina is Great': Trump endorses book declaring him possibly the 'most sound-minded' president ever

As Hurricane Florence barreled closer toward the Carolinas late Thursday, President Trump had time to endorse a book by a booster who called him the “most sound-minded” president ever.

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Sept. 5 to promote her new book, “Mad Politics: Keeping Your Sanity in a World Gone Crazy,” Gina Loudon, who describes herself as a member of the “Donald Trump for President Media Advisory Board,” proceeded to call the anonymous New York Times op-ed from a senior official within the Trump administration part of the “Trump derangement syndrome.” She then explained how she used her background in psychology to determine the commander in chief’s mental fitness.

Yep, the Orange Anus-Mouth is as "sound-minded" as his batshit crazy worshipers, and this is just another example.
