Elephant in the Room
Trump's Mental State

What difference does it make that I disagree with nearly everything that Donald the Dumbs says and believes? At a superficial level, it doesn’t. Even identical twins will disagree with each other. However, with Donald the Dumb, it is radically different at another critically important level.

The psychological elephant

Two months ago, I wrote about the psychological elephant in the room. It was a non-aggressive essay about Donald the Dumb’s belief about himself. As my grandmother said, “I love me. I think I'm grand. When I go to heaven, I'll hold my hand.”

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) categorizes narcissistic personality disorder (301.81) based upon various behavior criteria:

  • Having an exaggerated sense of self-importance
  • Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
  • Exaggerating your achievements and talents
  • Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
  • Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people
  • Requiring constant admiration
  • Having a sense of entitlement
  • Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations
  • Taking advantage of others to get what you want
  • Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
  • Being envious of others and believing others envy you
  • Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner
  • To have a psychiatrist or psychologist make a diagnosis of a psychological disorder, there must be a handful of criteria from this list, which apply to the client. I am neither a psychiatrist nor a psychologist but have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) for nearly two decades. A LMFT is much lower down the academic food chain than either a psychiatrist or psychologist. However, if I can see the parallels between a narcissistic personality disorder and Donald the Dumb’s abnormal behavior, then he surely suffers from that psych disorder. In fact, out of the above criteria, they all apply to Trump.

    President Donald the Dumb

    A couple days ago, I happened upon an article from the Huffington Post about the Donald’s narcissistic personality disorder. Watch this video of a psychologist. https://youtu.be/4l_f_Q-MflU

    Also, in the Huffington Post’s essay was an interview with a psychologist.

    Go to the Internet and google “trump narcissistic personality disorder diagnosis”. You will find nearly a half million sites. Only watch videos or read essays of psychiatrists or psychologists. This isn’t fake news. What is scary about this news is that the Donald isn’t mentally stable to be the president and the Commander-in-Chief.

    Imagine a person with narcissistic personality disorder with access to the nuclear football. The generals and admirals in the American military must be planning for the moment when ordered to unleash our nuclear arsenal.
