Psychologists Use Footage of Trump to Illustrate Narcissism as Clinical Trait

This is not something that you read every day, about how the sitting president of the United States, or the leader of any country, for that matter, is considered pathological enough, to where behaviorists use evidence of his case in order to teach students about a given clinical trait, but with Donald Trump, that’s where we are. The trait in question is narcissism. Intriguingly, this fact was pointed out by none other than George Conway, proclaimed windmill cancer survivor and one of Trump’s staunchest critics. If you missed Trump’s Colorado speech last night, when he wasn’t complaining about how foreigners come over and take our Best Picture Oscars, he spent 20 minutes debunking a Fox News segment on how well he did or didn’t do in the 2016 debates. The self obsession is incredible. Has anybody ever heard of an athlete, for example, who years later is talking about a given play in a particular game? Oh, wait. The future is now. https://t.co/D0tXXrz54H — George Conway (@gtconway3d) February 21, 2020 This is the article that Conway is referencing, “The Mind Of Donald Trump” written in 2016 by Dan P. McAdams, a psychology professor at Northwestern University and the author of The Strange Case of Donald J. Trump: A Psychological Reckoning. Here’s an anecdote I’ve never read before and it’s a doozy. When, in the summer of 1999, he stood up to offer remarks at his father’s funeral, Trump spoke mainly about himself. It was the toughest day of his own life, Trump began. He went on to talk about Fred Trump’s greatest achievement: raising a brilliant and renowned son. As Gwenda Blair writes in her three-generation biography of the Trump family, The Trumps, “the first-person singular pronouns, the I and me and my, eclipsed the he and his. Where others spoke of their memories of Fred Trump, [Donald] spoke of Fred Trump’s endorsement.” I thought I’d heard it all. But with Trump, ain’t no valley low enough.

Trump Declares ‘Heat’ Will ‘Kill’ Coronavirus, While Experts Claim They Know Nothing At All

Another day, another egregiously uninformed comment by Donald Trump. Now he’s fantasizing that the coronavirus is fine, just fine, and it will be gone by spring, due to “the heat.” Just FYI, the temperature in April in northern China is 46 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and that is scarcely a climate one would expect to burn out any virus, let alone a virus of which almost nothing is known. In short, Trump’s talking out his a$$, just to have something to say, while people are dying. Referring to the coronavirus, Trump says he was told by China's President Xi, "By April, during the month of April, the heat generally kills this kind of virus, so that would be a good thing." pic.twitter.com/AbYyX4qRzZ — Oliver Willis (@owillis) February 10, 2020 Experts in the field don’t think that Trump is right, surprise, surprise. CNN: It would be reckless to assume that things will quiet down in spring and summer,” said Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Texas. – “We don’t really understand the basis of seasonality, and of course we know we absolutely nothing about this particular virus,” Hotez said. – “His hope is our hope,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, referring to Trump’s tweets. “But we don’t have knowledge that it will do that.” Trump can’t be bothered to deal seriously with the coronavirus because it won’t put money in his pocket, is the bottom line. The only things that get Trump’s attention are if he can profit from something or get more famous from it. Otherwise, it is a bore and a topic of disinterest, to be blown off. Which is exactly what he did here. Every other leader on the planet is concerned about the pandemic threat that the coronavirus poses, except for this one.

Pelosi: ‘You’re Supposed To Talk About the State of the Union, Not the State...

Donald Trump has always played fast and loose with the truth, making up facts as he goes along. He does this, because he’s not doing politics in Washington, D.C., he’s doing a reality TV show, Apprentice: Presidential Edition. This is how his mind works, and this is as high as he can reach. To a seasoned political veteran like Nancy Pelosi, or simply to anybody with a sense of propriety, this is anathema. So she tore up his SOTU speech and here’s what she said Wednesday. The Hill: “He shredded the truth so I shredded his speech,” Pelosi told House Democrats during a closed-door caucus meeting, according to sources in the room. Like she did the night before, she called his 90-minute address “a manifesto of mistruths.” “You are supposed to talk about the State of the Union,” Pelosi continued, “not the State of your alleged mind.” Trump, Pelosi said, “disrespected” the House chamber and used it as a “backdrop for a reality show… to give a speech that had no connection with reality.” Apparently she did a slow burn, while listening to 78 minutes of hyperbolic fantasy about Trump’s accomplishments, the state of his alleged mind, indeed, 24/7. “I didn’t go in there to tear up the speech, and I didn’t even care that he didn’t shake my hand. In fact, who cares?” Pelosi told her caucus, according to sources in the room. “But I’m a speed reader, so … I went like this through the speech. So I knew that it was a pack of lies.  I knew it was a pack of lies, but I thought, ‘Well, let’s see how it goes.’ “About a quarter through it I thought, ‘You know – he’s selling a bill of goods like a snake oil salesman. We cannot let this stand,’” she said. “So, somewhere along the way realizing what was coming, I started to stack my papers in a way that were tear-able.” A few short hours from now, Trump will be acquitted and then watch out — he’ll likely give the real state of the union address he wanted to give last night and which McConnell persuaded him not to. And who knows, Pelosi may replace Hillary in the “Lock her up” chants. That is how demented Trump is. And still the GOP goes along with it all, probably envying him and wishing that they could get away with what he does. I think that has to be the attraction and the fascination.
