Dem Rep. says he was treated for PTSD after Capitol riot

Congressman Dan Kildee (D-MI) revealed in an interview on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports” 0n Monday that he was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.

After the protest, “I thought I was fine,” Kildee said.

“It was after I got home and I started looking at some of the video from the event. I thought it was a few dozen people. It was hundreds and hundreds of people, violent people, and that triggered an emotional and physical reaction. I had a lot of tension in my chest and breathing was difficult. I became really irritable.”

Kildee said a friend in Congress suggested he reach out to Dr. Jim Gordon. Gordan has worked with survivors of traumatic events around the world, including survivors of the 2018 shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

“I’ve worked in war zones and post-war, post-disaster situations, after-school shootings and with war-traumatized vets. And what Dan was experiencing as he talked about it is what people experience,” Gordon said.

Kildee is not the first to note mental health concerns following the U.S. Capitol riots. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has shared she thought she “was going to die.”

“And I’m not ashamed to say that, because I think we should all — nobody should be ashamed to say that,” she added.

Michigan’s Kildee continues to discuss his concerns with what took place on Jan. 6 in Washington. Meanwhile, his locked down state’s COVID-19 cases have spiked, as the governor’s top aide was spotted vacationing in sunny, conservative-led Florida.

  1. Single Mom Makes $89,844/Yr in Her Spare Time on The Computer Without Selling Anything. you can bring from $5000-$8000 of extra income every month. working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger.

    The potential with this is endless…>>>>>> http://www.works91.com

    1. Well I can honestly say this if this Congress gentleman was diagnosed with this type of disability he should not be working in his current situation!! It Henderson’s ones act to think and react !! He needs to retire immediately ! And someone else fill the spot!! I am a nurse ! I have worked with patients some had ptsd it’s not a good thing to watch a person go through !!

      1. He and WE would be better off if he did retire, or at least give up the job he thought he so wanted…..probably for the pay and the BIG AND IMPORTANT JOB. Poor, poor baby.

      2. I agree and I can only hope that the fear they felt will help them have more respect for our military and first responders that go through this on a daily basis. Its real life for a lot of people that our government doesn’t think is needed.

      3. Hey! Rodney,
        Post Traumatic Stress? How can that affect a Congressman who has never been in the military, much less fought a battle overseas?

      4. how can you possibly be that scared when not one gun was found in the whole melee maybe if you had a consciance i could see it

  2. I agree he was mentally disfunctioning, since he voted to impeach our dearly beloved President Trump. This is why he will not be re-elected, changing parties is a good idea.

    1. Indeed!! If he represents what the country is calling “leadership” it’s hopeless. How would he or those who follow his lead ever defend our country (or even themselves or their homes) in the future? Utterly Pathetic!! Semper Fi!!

  3. well then, he should forced to resign and given a medical discharge, with no pay. Obviously incapable of dealing with the real world.

  4. 🤣🤣🤣🤣obviously this pansy has never been in a REAL WAR!!!!! Unbelievable 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣only person shot with gun by police officers – is he going to suffer when INCOMPETENT CLUELESS NIDEN FETS US INTO A WAR WITH PUTIN?!!!!

    1. That isn’t PTSD. That’s “Guilt” from being a Lowlife Democrat and trying to push this country into a Sanctuary dumpster.

  5. Another lying democrats.How come he is not suffering from PTSD from all the destruction taking place by his party

  6. Then he should resign because he obviously can’t do his job efficiently not that he was doing anything anyway

  7. Maybe pisslosi, Biden, Harris and the rest suffer from PTSD. That way they are not competent to do their jobs. 25 th amendment. New election. Solves everything

  8. This just makes PTSD seem more fake.
    The new disability everyone tries to claim but few really have. If you are the actual victim of an IED or have been shot ok , the rest of you are just milking the system.

  9. This person is totally insane! Let’s send him to Iran or Afghanistan to feel reality. Numb brain cells! Get out the crying towels and gag him! Idiot, stupid, brainless, WHIMPY, jerk!

  10. Well They Took off What I wrote Damn It Was Good, Guess He Didnt Realize It Wouldnt Have Happened If Not For the Scum incharge of the police Was offered The Troops/ National Guard # times And Said NO!, SO SUE HER the Families OF The Dead Cops IT WAS ALL HER SHOW, So Mabie We should Sue All the Demos n Rinos They are Beyond Rich, FOR DOING NADA, From The White House DOWN, TELL SCUMLOSIE STOP USING WE THE PEOPLES MONEY, OH BTW< SEND THE ILLEGIALS RIGHT TO ALL THEIR GATED HOUSES WE PAID FOR< AND THE WH ITS BIG ENOUGH!

  11. This is what the Democrats have to offer? They are more concerned about themselves than the people they represent. Cowards all.

  12. Sounds like the typical Democrat BS What is that Phoney POS going to do when there is a Revolt and the true Americans knock on his door

  13. Awe did you soil your panties? If little events like this cause you to have PTSD then perhaps you should stay in diapers and let the grownups run the country. Because there is no room for pansies.

  14. He’s not from my state, so I can’t really help with his PTSD by sending him home after voting him OUT of office. So you folks need to really help with his PTSD. VOTE THE WEAK KNEED NUT CASE OUT. I wonder if he has been voting for our VETS who really do have PTSD? Or if he is one of those DemocRATS who have been lining his own pockets at the tax payers expense.


  16. Any other Dems or RINOs feel same that day?
    Ive heard None so far.
    Or is this for votes, media attention

  17. PTSD huh?…send him over to a war zone and have some bullets flying in his direction and add a few mortars for good measure. THEN have that poor guy REALLY have some PTSD. Just the way the Demoratic party is destroying this country should give everyone, especially those who voted for the treasons, PTSD!

  18. Can you imagine how he would react to being in the middle of one of the antifa/blm peaceful protests. Ducking frozen water bottles, running from fires, having you property destroyed, getting beaten to a pulp etc etc. What a pansy. Only ones who should have PTSD are the cops and Trump supporters.

  19. Is this wussy still in office? Why? He needs to be 25th amendment ousted. If he gets so mentally damaged by television he is not fit to be in any government office.

  20. I don’t know why aoc was even mentioned since she was found to have not even been in the Capital at the time. She was blocks away in an unaffected building.

  21. Given the mind shattering decisions being made by this Administration, we will all be suffering from PTSD
