Trump, the Narcissist, Melts Down Before America

The Mayo Clinic’s definition of NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) is: “A mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others. Behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that is vulnerable to the slightest criticism. If you have NPD, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious, you often monopolize conversations, you may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior, and you may feel a sense of entitlement (when you don’t receive special treatment, you may become impatient or angry). At the same time, you have trouble handling anything that may be perceived as criticism. You may have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation. To feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make yourself appear superior.” Does this sound like Mr. Trump? You bet it does!

One of the nation’s top psychologists broke one of his profession’s ethics rules to give President Donald Trump a professional diagnosis.  John D. Gartner, a psychotherapist who teaches at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, told US News that he believes Trump has “malignant narcissism,” which is incurable, and different from narcissistic personality disorder.

“Donald Trump is dangerously mentally ill and temperamentally incapable of being president,” Gartner said, citing his movements and behavior, pointing out the president’s tendency for grandiosity, sadism, aggressiveness, paranoia, and anti-social behavioral patterns.

“We’ve seen enough public behavior by Donald Trump now that we can make this diagnosis indisputably,” Gartner added.

Indeed, the diagnosis for Trump fits the bill of Psychology Today’s definition of malignant narcissism, which, when described, sounds like Donald Trump almost to the letter. Carrie Barron, M.D., who wrote the magazine’s blog on Malignant Narcissism, says the disorder “renders these individuals scary, dangerous, and ruthless.”

Deborah Orr is one of Britain’s leading social and political commentators. She has a weekly column in the Guardian.  She described Trump as the “Narcissist King of White America.” People more expert than me have suggested that Trump shows all the signs of narcissistic personality disorder (NPD): a grandiose sense of self-importance; a sense of entitlement; interpersonally exploitative; often envious of others; requiring of excessive admiration; arrogant, haughty; lacks empathy (is unwilling to recognise or identify with the feelings and needs of others); is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

But a number of clinicians agreed to discuss how they would evaluate possible signs of narcissistic personality disorder. Asked to give an example, more than one expert cited the tweet Trump sent out just hours after the Orlando nightclub massacre last month: “Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism.”

Trump has said that his “IQ is one of the highest,” that he has “the world’s greatest memory,” and that he is “dazzled” by his own creations.  During his speech at the Republican convention, he faulted the government’s “broken system,” then declared: “I alone can fix it.”

Trump, the narcissist, had a melt down before national television.  He blamed the media for reporting on his mistakes and errors of judgment.  Instead of accepting blame, explaining his missteps, or simply apologizing, the insecure Trump went on the attack.  He suggested that the media was misreporting the facts.

 

 

 

President Trump said, “The media has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people if we don’t talk about it. Tremendous disservice. We had to talk about it because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.

Morning Joe won’t even invite Kellyanne Conway on his show as he said: ” “I don’t believe in fake news or information that is not true. That is—every time I’ve ever seen her on television something is askew, off, or incorrect.”

Trump declared that he alone could fix the crime in America.

He said: “I alone can fix it” when speaking about the country.

I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created.

“I will be the greatest representative of Christians.”

I will be America’s greatest defender and most loyal champion. 

If elected, Mr Trump, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency. 

Trump had the largest crowd ever to watch the inauguration of an American president.

He  attended one of the best business schools in America.

He reported that his book, The Art of the Deal, was  the No. 1 selling business book of all time.

The Apprentice, he said was “a tremendous success, one of the most successful shows.”

Everything he owns is the best, biggest, hottest. His apartment: “There may be no other apartment in the world like it.” His yacht: “probably the most beautiful yacht ever built.” His living room: “While I can’t honestly say I need an eighty-foot living room, I get a kick out of having one.” And his third wife, Melania: “considered by many, including me, to be one of the most beautiful women in the world.

“I play to people’s fantasies,” Trump explains. “. . .­­ It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion.” Perception is reality, he writes, and achieving an “aura” (a recurring word in his writings) around his projects, his ideas and himself is essential.  Now it appears that the only fantasy of the American people is that Donald Trump, the mentally ill President, can actually make America great again!

Trump attacks the media for inaccurate reporting any time they are less than flattering.  If they are flattering, they must be telling the truth.  Never before has this been more obvious than the press conference where Trump revealed the depth of his narcissism.  Today we learned that he doubled down by sending an e-mail to over half of Americans asking them to take a survey to acknowledge their support.    The fact that Trump sent the e-mail is evidence that any reporting on the results is obviously tainted.  Moreover, the e-mail was sent only to Trump supporters, so the results are predictable.  Trump is a hot mess!

  1. Is it wrong to sadistically love love love the “hot mess” picture?
    The guy is unfit to govern a sock drawer.

    Smelly burlap sack Bannon obligingly helps by turning the pages and reading the next play…..
    So now it is the National Guard pawn in play.
    This is a “shit sandwich.”
    (Think I just heard that comment from a very well built Marine looking guy who also must be a little trumper to be considered.)

  2. This first month has been great. Todd is taking everyone fishing today. He is going to flood Bristol bay with mine tailings. He thinks all the fish will float to the top within hours. He really is a true sportsman.

    He also got a few gun licences for his blind gun buddies. He is going to put them in the woods to shoot wolfs, Pandas or unicorns. Whatever pops his head up. If anything goes wrong he has 6 hour term life insurance on each blind hunter.

    He is really worried that they will only wound each other. He won’t be able to collect the death benefit if they live past 6 hours. He is so practical. He stole a water cannon from north Dakota and is making the blindies hunt naked. A few swirts of water on a frozen blind guy should mitigate his risk.

    Bristols sales of her tea in a bottle are tanking like ivankas. Todd is helping her out. He is lacing the tea mix with opiods. He thinks that if you make the customers drug addicts you can raise the price. Also if they are pregnant you may get two customers for life. He really should run the SBA.

    Sarah is in the crawl space with moths all over her. Her new skin suit is almost complete. She really is starting to like immigrants, they have really good skin.

    We are shipping a bunch of rubber thumbs to trump. His real thumb is almost completely sucked off. we figure a couple dozen a week will help keep him together.

    Trump is working on a new way to handle Russians and immigrants. He is discuising refugee boats as military vessals. Now putin can blow boats out of the ocean and get his jollies off. This will help reduce their stockpile of weapons and also stop illegal imigrants.

    I got to get back to the whitehouse briefing room. Trump wants me to bring tar and feathers and a few water boards. He want to personaly meet with each reporter.
