well, votin' for him is nuts...
the bad hatter...tee time.
he's bad shit crazy...
Really horrible people also go nuts. Those traits are not mutually exclusive.
Exactly.He is cleary both to anyone paying attention. After all, how many psychotic narcissists do you find enjoyable?
re: the Goldwater rule ? John Gartner is a psychologist in private practice, an assistant professor at John Hopkins University Medical School and the author of In Search of Bill Clinton: A Psychological Biography and All I Ever Wanted to Know About Donald Trump I Learned From His Tweets: A Psychological Exploration of the President via Twitter
He argues that the Goldwater Rule is outdated, because the DSM (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) makes it possible to diagnose based on behaviour. Speaking about Donald Trump, he says, “We have a lot of data based on his behaviour.” It is documented on TV and in the newspapers every day.
Hell, simply Google up "village voice donald trump" and see decades of crap HE did.And that is just ONE source.
HAH! Did not KNOW that one ! A LAFF RIOT !!There is so much he did that was on record,establishing ALL the Republican Party as COMPLICIT in running this bum.
I agree with this article. He's irrational and narcissistic. He's not going to be removed as nuts and certainly not by his sycophantic cabinet and Congress. There is no Get Out of Trump Free card.
Not all crazy people are horrible people. ButAlll horrible people are crazy.
i do understand the doctors emphasis on lumping bad behaviour in with mental illness. it diminishes how we, as a society, should view and react to mental illness. the key is the "illness" part of it. those with mental illness didn't choose it and don't have control over it occurring. i have OCD and BPDD and have been in and out of treatment the majority of my life but i kept that aspect on the down low because of the stigma that was and still is attached to "mental illness". until we, as a society, can accept and understand the challenges of mental illness, we will continue to attach any behaviours we don't understand to "crazy" instead of acknowledging that people really can be bad and horrible and still be perfectly "sane".
Well, at least with his election, it has shown the empty core of the GOP, the evangelical movement and the Tea Party which most of on the left of center suspected but now is in full evidence.
I thought that had been exposed many times over...since Reagan. But I get your point. This is a new low.
i think we got complacent under President Obama. There is a man that inspires confidence and even though he faced an obstructionist congress, we knew he wouldn't let anything really bad happen. it's on us but it's a natural reaction after the 8 years of g.w. i guess we now know that we can't rest EVER even if we have congressional majority and a dem. president. not EVER
Trump clearly displays the personality traits of a psychopath: lack of a conscience or sense of guilt, lack of empathy, egocentricity, pathological lying, repeated violations of social norms, disregard for the law, shallow emotions, and a history of victimizing others.He's not clinically insane, but he's definitely dangerous.
All of the traits you list, Trump fits, but I noticed the good doctor above does not make any assessment of Trump's reality testing or level of psychosis, how delusional he is. He sidesteps the issue entirely. It's not even mentioned. You, likewise, don't mention it. It's possible to be a psychopath and be non-psychotic or psychotic. It's possible to be an awful human being and be either non-psychotic or psychotic. If Trump is ALSO psychotic, in addition to all you mention, then he may well be clinically insane. However, he clearly demonstrates knowledge of right and wrong, legal and illegal, when he seeks to hide his criminal behavior from detection by law enforcement and the public, and that means he definitely isn't legally insane. He can and should be held legally accountable for his actions.
these are traits common to children of first generation wealth. he didn't ever have to work for anything; even his education was bought and it was a foregone conclusion he would end with a degree from whatever university would accept the pay-for-degree. with the hefty "stake" he began with, and daddy swooping to the rescue when he fucked up (which he did from the get), to the paid minions he has always had around him, he has never suffered a negative consequence and therefore doesn't even know what one is. i think he is beginning to get SOME idea that not everyone and everything can be bought (although his party hasn't done a thing to dissuade him from THAT idea) and that he does not have complete control of his situation. we still see that those around him with-hold negative info from him but he can't POSSIBLY be that oblivious to it, he just can't. yes, i want him and the whole administration shitteree out on their hands and ass but until we get control of congress again, it's just a gesture.
Spoil a child, remove any CONSEQUENCES for his actions and as he enters the "work world" have all around him Kow Tow because he is the Boss's son and THIS is what you,NATURALLY, get. As a life long New Yorker, only 3 years younger than the shmuck I can VERIFY, as many articles in the Press over decades can, he has always been this way, 1979, 1983, 1994..... Damn the Republican Party (once again) for RUNNING THIS BUM !
I remember that well.It was yet another broken promise.You can also look into the "Polish worker" thing regarding the origins of his " Trump Tower".
So true. He will tell a lie he thinks will make him look better in the public eye rather than tell a truth he knows will make him look bad. He knew being honest about the sculptures would make him look like a horrible person, so he lied in the interest of hopefully being perceived as someone trying to do the right thing but unfortunately thwarted by circumstances. That is the Trump way. Even now, he positions himself the same way with regard to the #ShitgibbonShutdown. His version of events: He *tried* to make a deal for the American People, but the evil forces in Washington thwarted the good man. Rolls eyes and spits.
Was that the one where the Museum of Modern Art wanted them and said he could set the cost of saving them against his taxes? Of course, when you don't pay your taxes ...
seriously, that hair screams crazy.
Couldn't agree more. Trump is a horrible in every regard, the complete opposite of everything decent and human. A walking abortion.
um...shouldn't that be horriblest?
"Why wasn’t there a demonstration in Washington against the tax cuts or the threats to medical coverage?"
EXCUSE ME? There WERE. But if you only follow the MSM, you didn't hear a thing about any of it. But there WERE demonstrations. We were NOT silent. We were just IGNORED because it's not good for the MSM to recognize US, only the 1%.
The fact is, we have a HUGE number of people in this country who are not only VERY bad judges of character, but are just as racist, selfish, and self centered as Two Scoops himself. They even SAID as much. "He says what I'm thinking!". How pathetic does it say YOU are when you think like a fucking PSYCHOPATH? Two Scoops is a COMPLETELY FLAWED human being. It just figures the republicans would think just like HE does. What have I been saying about them for DECADES, now? These are NOT good people, these are VERMIN. And they prove it EVERY time they open their loathesome faces and say what's on their miserable, PUNY little minds. These are ALL small minded, selfish little BASTARDS. And that is the NICEST thing I can say about ANY of them. FUCK THEM ALL.
Annnnd once again WJM51 hits it outta the park!
BUT he's hella hot!
Yup! Just ask Nikki Haley.
how do you get puke out of a keyboard?
A nuclear blast works really well.
with a flamethrower. since i saw the haley/trump "connection" posited yesterday i can't seem to get rid of seizure inducing flashes of their "affair". i mean, who cares about an affair but anyone having one with trump is ick factor 2 million
Trump’s favorite pick-up line: I’m gonna tap my nutsack on your buttcrack.
idiot savant apparently with a knack for manipulating republicans and other idiots
I think incompetent is a better description. And he lacks any curiosity about knowing how things really work or anything that does not out a dollar in his pocket or some striking of his ego. One thing I do agree with the writer on is that he is not suffering from dementia. He intentionally speaks so no one can really understand what he is saying, peppering it with a few slick slogans but no real details. He has no details.
So in order to pull off his con game, people equally lacking in curiosity must think he's communicating ideas when it's actually bullshit. Ask anyone attending his campaign rallies what he stood for and they will say "lock her up" or "build that wall". Ask why you would lock her up or how the wall will help and why Mexico would pay for it and they will look like the 5 wattt bulb just went out in the empty space between their ears. Comparing their thinking capacity to a swimming pool, they definitely are not in the deep end. A lot of them are still splashing around in the kiddie pool.
Here we go again. In that entire article conservatives were not described as conservative even once. There is no such thing as a Trump supporter. They are called conservatives, not a damned thing else, and Trump didn't create their rabid racism their rabid racism created Trump.What will we call the racist first conservatives when Trump is gone? It sure won't be conservatives will it?
"Conservative" doesn't mean RWNJ Trump supporter. I know a few conservatives who detest Trump (BTW, I am NOT a conservative myself).
Yeah, if you could get an honest answer from Paul Ryan, he hates Trump. But mainly because Trump's incompetence makes it harder for Ryan to start dismantling Social Security and Medicare.
and because he is EMBARRASSING; he's the bloated, ignorant, infantile face of the party and ol' paulie would prefer one that they could wheel out for sound bites and photo ops that could pass for a piece of plywood.
