“Kernberg described malignant narcissism as a syndrome characterized by a narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), antisocial features, paranoid traits, and egosyntonic aggression. Other symptoms may include an absence of conscience, a psychological need for power, and a sense of importance (grandiosity).”
The above is a perfect definition of the actions of Donald John Trump. He constantly not only claims that he has a “good brain,” he tells everyone that he “knows more than anyone about everything.” Trump constantly tells anyone who will listen that he is the victim; that he has never made a mistake or done anything wrong in his life. His enormous and fragile ego forces him to attack anyone who criticizes any of his words or actions. He has no conscience although he has sexually assaulted more than two dozen women. He is desperate to appear powerful and in control.
Back in September after it was revealed that Trump was mistaken when he claimed that Alabama was in the path of a hurricane, Trump’s reaction offered proof that he is mentally incompetent to be our nation’s leader. It was obvious that Trump uses a sharpie to extend the hurricane’s direction on an official map. White House aids described an extreme level of erratic behavior when his lies were exposed.
Aides saw Trump’s frustration about the lie and his fears about the 2020 election.
“People are used to the president saying things that aren’t true, but this Alabama stuff is another story,” the former official said. “This was the president sending out patently false information about a national-emergency situation as it was unfolding.”
My only question is ‘why haven’t Republicans initiated the invocation of article 25 of the Constitution?’ This old, obese, white man-child is unfit for the presidency. He cannot be allowed to remain in office.
Republicans have known for three years that Trump is incompetent and unable to fulfill his duties. They can be called traitors for not protecting the Constitution and their country as they promised when they took office. The right-wing has become the enemy of the American people.
Time to face the truth; the once Grand Old Party has not existed for more than 30 years. The party of Lincoln, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Reagan no longer exists. These Republicans in name only must be removed from Washington.
