(The Hill)   It appears that, despite her claims otherwise, the woman who wrote the book saying Trump is the "most sound-minded" president ever, doesn't actually have a psych degree but instead has a Ph.D in "human and organization systems" from an online school   ( thehill.com) divider line

I'm shocked. I did not know Trump U had an online campus.

The moment anyone uses the phrase "Trump derangement syndrome," they immediately lose every single nanogram of whatever scraps of credibility they may have previously been in possession of as surely as if they'd said "liberals" or referred to Obama by spelling out his full name with his middle name all in caps.


Although for anyone who writes a book that praises Trump, this is already a given.

Took a while to get an article going on her that a 2 minute Wikipedia read would've told you.

She's a con, just like everyone else that defends King Con.

This was her dissertation:

"But my book actually uses science and real data and true psychological theory to explain why it is quite possible that this president is the most sound-minded person to ever occupy the White House," she said.

Uh huh.  Would you let your child behave that way?  No?  Then STFU.  You'd be taking him/her to counseling and probably medicating them.

"My gut instincts, which have nothing to do with my professional training, are pretty solid," she writes.

Drink!

Seriously, a statement like this doesn't clinch it for you to walk my dog, much less diagnose the president: your employer and the source of all your income.

"She admits that she does not have clinical training, The Daily Beast noted."

(A) Crazy person; (B) Grifter; (C) Both

I really can't conceive of any other option here. Direct observation of Trump would dispel this notion in a hot minute for anyone who wasn't mentally ill or paid to service him. I don't think even bog-standard "stupid" is enough to cover this.

"My gut instincts, which have nothing to do with my professional training, are pretty solid," she writes.

Republicans, as a rule, are taught to trust their 'instincts', because instincts can be conditioned to give you the response you desire. Republicans 'gut instincts' inform their positions on almost their entire political philosophy, based on my own non-scientific polling of friends and family. See:

Gut instincts contradict science w/ respect to:

- good guy with gun best defense against bad guy with gun, rather than gun laws
- welfare and social programs should be ended or cut, because they make everyone lazy immoral do-nothings, and are a net drain on society
- all democratic politicians are crooks, and all Republican politicians are family-value saints
- the climate changes aren't man-made, but either non-existent or natural cycles
- gay marriage will destroy our society and family structures
- transgenders go into the restrooms to molest and/or build spank-bank material, rather than relieve themselves where they feel more comfortable
- the mueller probe is a witch hunt
- tax cuts = wealth will trickle down to the middle class and poor
- police are completely non-racist, and are justified to mortally fear all dark skinned folks and can shoot them on sight
- Obama's policies ruined the economy and Trump's policies saved it

I have to stop. Urge to text my parents and yell at them, rising.

Here is an actual sample of her "scientific analysis":

Or did he say, "They're bringing crime, theirrapists, and some, I assume are good people"?

...

The media went mad. The media made people mad. Trump made the media mad. Candidate Trump used his mad skills to drive the media mad. The media accused Trump supporters of being mad, and they were!

...

Is President Trump crazy? Yes, I answer, he is. He is crazy like a fox, and it's driving them all crazy! It seems that winning is simply in this president's DNA, and it drives the left insane...He gets up every day and changes his tactics just enough to provoke another hissy fit, more ferocious than the day before.

And that is just the first page. This "book" makes Bill O'Reilly's tripe seem well thought out and coherent.

I have my GED in that
 
2018-09-14 11:20:32 AM  
Well, I have an honorary doctorate in temporal physics from EIHT (the faith based school operated by my religion) and I can professionally and officially proclaim that Trump is the dumbest 45th President of the United States out of every timeline that contains a comparable USA.

\Is there some way I can add PhD to the end of my UN?

To be fair, his supporters are morons and this book was certainly crafted specifically for the consumption of an mostly uneducated, immoral 'win at all cost' traitors to our democratic ideals.

This also applies to the entire programming schedule on Fox News, and anything issued by this current White House administration.

Slight correction - the book wasn't crafted for the consumption of the deplorables, it was crafted to be an unexamined reference employed by the deplorables.

Some of them may buy it, but pretty much none of them will read it.

I happen to disagree with what the president of the Florida Psychiatric Society said about the author's degree:
"It also does not appear to offer any coursework in assessment or abnormal psychology which would be necessary to conduct a valid assessment."

You don't need to have taken a course in abnormal psych to realize that this whole administration is nuttier than a jar of macadamias and that D2S thinks he's King Shiat of Turd Mountain.

I've got to ask - why bother getting a PdD from some online college that nobody has ever heard of? Why not go to University of Delaware (or wherever)? If you can't get accepted at a place that actually exists, maybe it's not meant to be.
