King Ludwig had better taste in castles than Donnie but both exhibit  serious mental illness and lack of competence to lead.

To be fair Ablow has been quacking up Fox for quite a while now. He's not a new phenomenon.

I worked with several psychiatrists in my previous profession. Very few of them were actually competent.

One doc openly lol'd when hearing a mentally disturbed patient/resident talking about how he had murdered his friend. I was there. I heard it. I was 23 and new. I was floored. I can still see his face with a big shiat-eating grin on it after all these years.

My father, who was an Ob-Gyn would jokingly say that psychiatrists were the medical doctors who couldn't hack the real work of doctoring.

After reading this article my professional opinion is that this so-called doctor I'llblow is an asshole. A I'll-say-anything-for-money-I-couldn't-hack-real-doctoring Fox network coont.

However it's %100 possible that "Dr." Ablow is a quack.

I don't know if Trump meets the clinical definition of a mentally ill person or not, and I don't care.
The evidence of all his major synapse misfires, however, were on full display daily for a year-and-a-half from the day he announced through election day*, and he plowed through 16 Republicans and then Hilary.

It's the nation that's sick, if anything.

*for the record, he was acting cray long before that as well

I should have added this to my post.

IMHO Trump has Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

Symptoms
Narcissistic personality disorder is indicated by five or more of the following symptoms:

* Exaggerates own importance
* Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence or ideal romance
* Believes he or she is special and can only be understood by other special people or institutions
* Requires constant attention and admiration from others
* Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment
* Takes advantage of others to reach his or her own goals
* Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy
* Is often envious of others or believes other people are envious of him or her
* Shows arrogant behaviors and attitudes

50 to 75 percent of the people diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder are male. Additionally, it is common for many adolescents to display the characteristics listed above; this does not indicate that they will later develop narcissistic personality disorder.

Causes
Causes of narcissistic personality disorder are not yet well-understood. Genetic and biological factors as well as environment and early life experiences are all thought to play a role in the development of this condition.

Treatments
Treatment for narcissistic personality disorder can be challenging because people with this condition present with a great deal of grandiosity and defensiveness, which makes it difficult for them to acknowledge problems and vulnerabilities. Individual and group psychotherapy may be useful in helping people with narcissistic personality disorder relate to others in a healthier and more compassionate way. Mentalization-based therapy, transference-focused psychotherapy, and schema-focused psychotherapy have all been suggested as effective ways of treating narcissistic personality disorder.

Yeah that seem about right in this case. There are successful people who have stressful good jobs who commit suicide everyday. Dentist, air traffic controllers, etc. they all make good money and often times have families. Does that make them not mentally ill no it farking doesn't. So basically this "dr" thinks if you aren't holding a sign on the street corner you can't be mentally ill. What a farking joke.

This guy's argument basically breaks down to "There have been mentally ill celebrities. There have been mentally ill businessmen. There have been mentally ill politicians. But since Trump has been all three, he can't possibly be mentally ill."  So 1=1, and 1+1=2. But 1+1+1 is an unsolvable equation.

Money(allegedly), a family, and a bunch of crap with his name on it.  That's not proof of sanity, those are hurdles to sanity.

It's technically true. A mental disorder is loosely defined as the inability to function in a society due to your emotional state or behavior.  Which is typically measured by your ability to hold a job or a relationship for an extended period of time. Being a jackass is not a mental disorder. Being a narcissist is not a mental disorder. Being a jackass or a narcissist to the point you need to depend on someone for your survival, that runs into mental disorder.

Hey, he appointed a completely unqualified incompetent idiot to be a department head.  What are the odds that a crazy person would make that choice?

Checkers, libnips.

Someone on here keeps on bringing up the point that the DSM specifies that (typically) for someone to qualify for a diagnosis of a particular disorder, the symptoms of the disorder must have a significant impact on their lives.

This supposedly means that since Donnie is "rich and successful" he's not mentally ill.

What's it called when someone's emotional state makes society unable to function?

Actually, what you usually get is Glitterhoof as your chancellor.

Then you need to find the person that hates your ruler the most and make them your spymaster.

A mental disorder is something that impairs your ability to function in society. Jackasses who make enemies everywhere they go, who lie their way through life, and who wreak havoc in all of their personal relationships (an ability to have a working relationship with someone is another animal altogether) are mentally impaired.

It's defined kind of like this:

An enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior the deviates markedly from the expectations of the individual's culture. This pattern is manifested in two (or more) of the following areas:
1. Cognition (i.e., ways of perceiving and interpreting self, other people and events)
2. Affectivity (i.e., the range, intensity, liability, and appropriateness of emotional response)
3. Interpersonal functioning
4. Impulse control
B. The enduring pattern is inflexible and pervasive across a broad range of personal and social situations.
C. The enduring pattern leads to clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
D. The pattern is stable and of long duration, and its onset can be traced back at least to adolescence or early adulthood


Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there. Just because other people will interact with the nutcase, and some don't even appear to notice the impairment, doesn't mean that it isn't there. It isn't dependent on what you perceive. It's a pattern, not one interaction.  You have to know the person better than just having lunch with them one day or something.

I think the concept of malignant narcissism was created as a descriptor for Trump.
