Former Bush economic policy adviser to GOP: I enlisted 2 psychiatrists to evaluate Trump and he’s a ‘10-out-of-10 narcissist’ with the decision-making ability of an ‘empty chair’

On Tuesday, May 14, veteran economist Larry B. Lindsey, who served as economic policy adviser under President George W. Bush, discussed China and trade policy when he spoke to Republicans in the House of Representatives and Senate. And the veteran Republican, according to Politico, had some unflattering things to say about President Donald Trump.

The 64-year-old Lindsey, who was a guest of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, said he enlisted two psychiatrists to evaluate Trump from far away — and Lindsey, Politico reports, told Congress members that in China, Trump is viewed as a “total narcissist” and a “10-out-of-10 narcissist.” Lindsey attributed Trump’s narcissism to not receiving enough attention from his mother during childhood.

Lindsey also told fellow Republicans that Trump is seriously limited when it comes to his ability to make long-term decisions — an ability he equated with that of an “empty chair.”

2. Kind of ironic, no?

What was his assessment of Bush's borderline sociopathic personality, I wonder?

5. I'd take BSP over malignant narcissm

Bush was mostly incompetent and a dry drunk. Once Cheney and Rumsfeld were out of the picture, he basically governed as a moderate, just a bit right of Bill Clinton. Trump is a late-stage, malignant narcissist, with signs both of past drug-abuse coming home to roost and paranoid dementia.

4. I respectfully disagree about the mother's attention thing

Her giving him more attention would have put him completely over the edge. Now he's only 75% psychotic.
