There’s a lot of speculation and even outright claims that Donald J. Trump, the Grand Ole Party’s, presidential nominee is a damn raging sociopath.
In the June 2016 issue of the “The Atlantic” by Dan P. McAdams, psychologists offer their professional perspective of Trump’s mental competency by examining his bizarre personality in an article titled THE MIND OF DONALD TRUMP. I won’t revisit their findings about Trump, but it’s worth reading to get a more clinical view of this man who is vying to become the 45th President of The United States. In my opinion, it should be required reading before voting for him.
Years ago on one of Oprah Winfrey’s shows that aired on the ABC network, she explored sociopathy. It was my first time hearing the term and learning about this antisocial personality disorder. Trump’s bizarre personality causes many of us to question his saneness. With him becoming increasingly unhinged over the slightest criticism, it would not be far-fetched to believe he will become violent as he begins to realize the world despises him and as he learns the media loves no one. They build you up just to tear you down. The tear down part has already started.
Now just consider how easily Trump outright lies, how he is quick to blame others and never takes responsibility for anything, his extreme narcissism and grandiosity. It always takes me back to that Oprah show, and I remember the woman that was the subject of the discussion possessed these same traits. I also remember the guest psychologist (not by name), who specialized in sociopathic behavior, saying that there was no cure, per se, for sociopathy because it is a personality disorder. She also said the specific cause of the disorder was unknown but they believe it has a direct link to some childhood trauma like sexual or physical abuse or it even could be genetic, and it occurs more often in men than women.
So after watching Trump over the past few days, simply disgusted by everything about him, I decided to do some research, and if the traits listed below don’t classify him as having a personality disorder, then he is simply bat shit crazy, meaning he has lost complete touch with reality. Either way, he should NEVER become President of The United States of America. Never! Ever!
“Medically, sociopathy is termed as antisocial personality disorder. It is defined as "a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others. According to the criteria set forth by the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), a medical classification list by the World Health Organization (WHO), “the presence of 3 or more of the following [traits] qualify for the diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder.” Guess what folks? Trump, by his behavior, own words and deeds has clearly demonstrated to the world to have the presence of ALL six of them.
1. Callous unconcern for the feelings of others. Check
2. Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, and obligations. Check
3. Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them. Check
4. Very low tolerance to frustration, a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence. Check
5. Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment. Check
6. Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalization for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society. Checkmate
This is why we must not only defeat Trump at the ballot box, we must destroy him so that his kind can never rise again. He lacks the ability to identify with and understand somebody else’s feelings coupled that with his excessive self-admiration and self-centeredness are not qualities for a normal relationship, let alone ones the leader of the free world should possess. This sociopath is a danger to world order and peace.
So as he continues to have diarrhea of the mouth hurling insults and making shit up, blaming others for his failures and shortcomings and low self-esteem, we will use his vile words and deeds against him to destroy his reputation, his brand. The bastard deserves it,
