You could say that about book Dany (even though I disagree), but you can't say this about show Dany.

D&D didn't build her character like that and it's a little too late to change that now. While book Dany refuses to admit her father's crimes, remains stuck to the "Usurper" fairy tale and has shown to be quite arrogant and ruthless, show Dany isn't like that. If anything, she was massively criticized for being 'white-washed' by the show writers.

She acknowledged her father's crimes, refused to take King's Landing by force and instead decided to gain the westerosi's trust and siege the city. She abandoned her fight for the throne to help fight against white walkers, dropped everything to save Jon and lost a dragon in doing so.

No, she doesn't oppose execution and doesn't have the (in)famous Stark sense of honor, but nothing she has done so far gives any indication of her being mad. You could argue she has acted cruel, but cruelty isn't madness. Tywin was cruel and cold, but no one called him mad.

Good description of her bipolar qualities.

Let's not make light of bipolar disorders, yes?

We don't. Bipolar disorder is characterised by alternating euphoric and depressive periods.

We used just the adjective "bipolar" to refer to two opposing traits of a character. This is a legitimate use of the adjective. It has nothing to do with the bipolar disorder.

Sorry for any misunderstandings.
