2. "Solipsistic reality" said one of these psychologists.

 

Solipsism - This is the word I have used to describe Trump in the past. It's a condition where you only believe in the reality of yourself. Other people don't matter to him. He'll throw anyone, even a close associate, under the bus, and not feel a thing.

It leads to sadism. One becomes so desperate to feel anything, one can become cruel. This man rips babies from their mothers at the border and doesn't feel a thing.

He must be removed from office one way or another.

From Wikipedia:

Solipsism; from Latin solus, meaning 'alone', and ipse, meaning 'self')[1] is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist. As an epistemological position, solipsism holds that knowledge of anything outside one's own mind is unsure; the external world and other minds cannot be known and might not exist outside the mind. As a metaphysical position, solipsism goes further to the conclusion that the world and other minds do not exist. This extreme position is claimed to be irrefutable, as the solipsist believes himself to be the only true authority, all others being creations of their own mind.
