Some psychiatrists have speculated about Donald Trump. It is evident that he is narcissistic, and a megalomaniac, but does his illness go even further? His extremely weak temperament, and his penchant for revenge against those who criticize him is troublesome at the least. His obsession with the media, and the fact that he refuses to believe facts other than his own, which are fantasy related, indicates a level of paranoia. This disease poses not only a danger to himself, but to the the entire world.
Speaking to the U.S. Central Command Monday, Trump made a complete fool of himself by creating his own truths; his “alternative facts.”
“You’ve seen what happened in Paris, and Nice. All over Europe, it’s happening,” he said to the assembled military leaders. “It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.”
Who is he attempting to convince? He didn’t stop there, he supported his spin doctor’s remarks about the “Bowling Green Massacre,” which never happened. But Kellyanne Conway never met a lie she didn’t fully embrace.
“I bet it’s brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre,” she said. “Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.”
If this doesn’t frighten you, I’m frightened for you. You might consider taking the standardized psychological evaluation yourself.
What can anyone say about a leader of one of the most powerful nations in the world who hates the truth; who denies facts? He doesn’t trust the media, or his own security services. He continues to have difficulties within his own hypocritical party who surrendered to their immoral and unprincipled leader. Trump refuses to admit his mistakes; and they are many. He refuses to surround himself with competent advisers because they know far more than he does about everything.
I predicted the worst on November 9th, but it is much more dangerous than even I estimated.
Trump is a very sick man. He is far worse than Richard Nixon, whose paranoia is legendary in political circles.
Trump is not capable of diplomacy. He is not qualified to negotiate with our enemies or our allies. To sum it up; he is unfit.
