Politics of Mental Health

My cerebral palsied incontinent AfricanAmerican FetalAlcohol daughter asked her teacher if she could be her Substitute while said teacher will be absent next week. I was asked for my opinion on the wisdom of accepting this offer: Ivy will rule with Ugly StepMother tyranny. She emulates President Trump's style of self v other empowerment. With her we call it Oppositional Defiant Disorder. With him we call it Executive Order. But then, I can look at the two of them side by side, and see why that may be why things are as they are.
