    A French court has ordered far-right leader Marine Le Pen
    to undergo psychiatric tests as part of an inquiry into her
    sharing images of Islamic State group atrocities.

    If only the courts in US could do that to Trump ...

    You mean, make him share images of his atrociousness?

    This is a standard procedure, not something specific to Le Pen. She will be found sane (in a legal sense).

    Is it not the case that U.S. courts can ask specialists to determine whether a defendant is mentally fit and able to understand the charges?

    Sure, US judges order psych evaluations all the time.

    It's basically a French court trolling the most powerful opposition leader (and by opposition, it is in a very meaningful sense of the word).

    Even if I agreed with the French center right or left, I would not think of it necessarily as some kind of victory.
