In an interview with Vanity Fair, clinical psychology teacher George Simon said about The Donald, “He’s so classic that I’m archiving video clips of him to use in workshops.”
According to the Mayo Clinic:
Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
Does that remind you of anyone?
The news I woke up to today was so creepy that initially, I thought I was just having another nightmare about The Donald. I’m sure you all heard it as well – clips of phone calls from the early 90s, where some guy (who sounded a lot like Donald Trump) claimed to be an innocent media spokesman, vigorously promoting Trump and his sexual exploits.
I never thought I’d actually feel bad for Trump’s kids. But this one has to be tough to shake off on the playground.
Without even mentioning Trump’s obsession with penis size jokes, I’m sure any psychologist would classify Trump as a tremendous narcissist.
In 1991, a reporter at People Magazine named Sue Carswell, called Trump’s office trying to score an interview with Trump. After a few minutes, she got a call back from “John Miller”, Trump’s publicist.
Eventually, the reporters began to consider these calls creepy. “Miller” became an incredibly candid source, who provided an insight into the mind of his client rarely beheld in any celebrity.
“Actresses just call to see if they can go out with him and things.” Madonna “wanted to go out with him.”
“Miller” kept referring to Trump in the third person. But one point during the interview, when asked about Trump’s love life, “Miller” cracked and said
“I think it’s somebody that — you know, she’s beautiful. I saw her once, quickly, and beautiful . . . ”
Instantly noticing his slip up, “Miller” resumed talking about Trump in the third person.
Also, Trump did testify in court once, that
“I believe on occasion I used that name.”
Naturally, people will ask themselves how Trump, the extreme narcissist, would do as president. Would a narcissist as president act on behalf of the people or like a dictator? Could you imagine Trump refusing to compromise or discriminating specific groups of people? If you can, then you agree that Trump would be a lousy president.
Let’s pretend that me and you are neuroscientists and let’s try to see if Trump matches the description above of a narcissist. A narcissist becoming President of the United States is extremely frightening.
For starters, that definition of a narcissist above states that they lack empathy. You don’t have to be the sharpest tool in the shed to agree that empathy waved bye bye to The Donald a long time ago. The cruel comments he has said about tearing Mexican families apart and banning groups of people from our country based on their religion is extremely callous.
I do not think Trump believes these racist comments that he says. You can’t control a global empire as YUGE as Trumps’ by discriminating. Pick any random shit-kicker at a KKK rally, and I don’t think they’d be able to conduct a meeting with Africans and Middle Easterns for all the money in the world. But if he isn’t a racist, and he still says such disgusting things, that only makes him worse. He is inciting mass violence and hatred against certain groups of people and certain religions, just to further his own career.
Also, the Mayo Clinic definition of a narcissist above, claims that they desperately need admiration. Has Trump ever said a sentence without one of the following words; greatest, biggest or best? He might have, but he does use those words an awful lot. When the Donald says how he owns the biggest hotels, or how he employs the greatest people, or how he will be the greatest job president ever, ask yourself why is it so important to him to be considered number one.
Anyone who entertains the idea of calling a newspaper and posing as someone else in hopes of getting a praiseworthy story written about them has SEVERE issues and belongs in a straight jacket in Whispering Pines as opposed to the oval office.
Lastly, the description above details how every narcissist has to be number one and appear omnipotent. But behind this mask of steel, lies a frightened little child, susceptible to any criticism. Have you ever seen Trump lash out at someone, with incredibly childish and personal attacks? Like when he called Megan Kelly a “bimbo”, or when he said “Lil Marco” has “lil hands”.
After all of Trump’s vices that republican voters ignore, I doubt acknowledging that he suffers from such a crippling mental handicap would open their eyes. Fox News even did a story with the grammatically atrocious title, “Don’t hate Donald Trump. Here’s why it’s time for a narcissistic president”.
