Johns Hopkins Top Psychotherapist Releases Terrifying Diagnosis Of President Trump

http://bipartisanreport.com/2017/01/27/johns-hopkins-top-psychotherapist-releases-terrifying-diagnosis-of-president-trump/

However, John D. Gartner, a registered psychotherapist from the renowned Johns Hopkins University Medical School seems to think Trump may, in fact, be the one with the problem. Gartner, who teaches psychiatric residents at Hopkins, decided to break the ethical code known as the “Goldwater Rule” in order to warn the American public about the dangerousness of our new commander-in-chief’s mental state.

Gartner, who is also the author of In Search of Bill Clinton: A Psychological Biography, says “Donald Trump is dangerously mentally ill and temperamentally incapable of being president.”

So there you have it. The leader of the United States of America is more than likely a malignant narcissist who has the fate of the free world in his two tiny hands. Not to mention, he now has access to the United States government’s nuclear codes. If that’s not terrifying, we don’t know what is.

2. I would guess that the same type of people who voted for Reagan also voted for Trump.

Both promoted a simplistic message of returning to an imaginary better time. Both used simple slogans instead of an actual plan, and both were controlled by a Vice President who actually ran the country.

Any complex and negative analyses that induce cognitive dissonance will be rejected by these voters.

Recommended.

9. "and both were controlled by a Vice President who actually ran the country"?

I won't argue the fact that, under Reagan, George H. W. Bush probably did "actually run the country."..however, I fail to see any evidence that, under Twitler, Mike Pence is "actually running" anything but his own big mouth.

11. I meant to reference Reagan and Bush Jr. My fault.

But I still feel that Pence is the price Trump paid for GOP support. Without active GOP suppression Trump would not have won.

12. I agree with you up to a point

"Without active GOP suppression Trump would not have won".

I agree with that statement;
However, imo, despite "active GOP suppression" (especially "Crosscheck", Trump still would likely have lost to HRC, were it not for the letter FBI Director James Comey sent to Congressional leaders just 11 days before the election.

HRC was ahead of Twitler in the polls by between 11-14 points, having gained on him after the "grab 'em by the pussy" tape was released;
but Comey's letter, lost her at least 7 or 8 points, so she went into the election with only a 3 or 4 point lead, not an 11-14 point lead, which was not enough to defeat the asshole..

The fact is, the GOP has proved over & over that it is able to steal any election which is close; but Obama proved twice that Dems can still win an election that is NOT close.

14. Agreed with your points.

From Nixon in 1968 through Reagan in 1980, through Bush Jr in 2000, ending, so far with Trump in 2016, the GOP has demonstrated that it will steal national elections.

But history books do not cover this particular history because it refutes the myth of American democracy and the people choosing wisely.

5. Is that a step above Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

Looks like it...

According to USNews, Gartner unofficially diagnosed Trump with “malignant narcissism.” Although he himself has not personally examined Trump, Gartner claims it’s obvious from watching even a little of his behavior that he meets the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. Some of the characteristics include:

Anti-social behavior
Sadism
Aggressiveness
Paranoia
Grandiosity
Entitled
Regressed
Manipulative
Destructive
Egocentric
Use of projection
Lack of conscience
Narcissistic

As if that weren’t enough, malignant narcissism is incurable.

6. Malignant Narcissism vs. Narcissism vs. Narcissistic Personality Disorder

http://psychologia.co/malignant-narcissism/
If you are hearing about malignant narcissism for the first time, you may be wondering how is that different from narcissistic personality disorder or simply narcissism...

Campbells’ Psychiatric Dictionary defines malignant narcissism as a mix of narcissism, antisocial personality disorder, aggression and sadism.

10. I love this line from the last paragraph of the Bi-Partisan Report article cited above:

"So there you have it.The leader of the United States of America is more than likely a malignant narcissist who has the fate of the free world in his two tiny hands."
