I'm mentally ill and not nearly as big an asshole as he is

I came for the picture, but bold, center, and giant letters for the file name will work as well.

Sure, that could be the case, or he could be wallowing in the ravages of syphilis like Henry VIII

He's what a spoiled narcissist becomes at 70.   He was always a raging asshole, now he's still a raging asshole, but sneaking in reading glasses.   And yeah, there might be some dementia sneaking in.  But it doesn't excuse the raging dicktardedry.

How about the excuses of "he is from a different generation" or that chart topping hit "he doesn't know any better"?  Let's take a call before we get back to the countdown.

Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by incompetence.

BUT

Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

Comparison of Trump and Capone:
-Have committed many crimes they'll probably get away with
-Will still fall to financial crimes if anything
-Untreated syphilis ravaging his brain

Plus he's always signed it as Ronny Jackson, M.D., not Dr. Ronny Jackson.

His inability to self deprecate, combined with his lack of comprehension of the concept of humor, thin skin, and inability to weigh or utilize the tools at his disposal, points to severe DSM 5 certified malignant narcissism.

That looks like an official document, not like the notes from Epstein's mother Trump uses for everything.
 
2018-01-13 02:28:41 AM  
Is being a psychopath, habitual liar, bully, and con artist as a life-long career considered mental illness? No? Then he must be just another asshole.

If only there was some indication he was an old out dated asshole!

2018-01-13 02:35:34 AM  
No.

Because there comes a point where being such an unbelievable asshole that Eric Cartman is yelling about what an unbelievable asshole you are is, itself, defined as a mental illness under some name or other.
 
2018-01-13 02:43:23 AM  
Wanton assholery, narcissism, deliberate  ignorance, stupidity, dementia, and multiple PhD's from Dunning-Kruger University are not mutually exclusive.

Lots of us were assholes back then, and we knew better. Not many ever admitted it, though, and those who reached high office had enough experience to fake a civilized persona. Trump is what happens when you get punted from "New York real estate swindler and professional asshole" to "president of the United States" without the intervening weasel training.
 
2018-01-13 02:45:45 AM  
No.  Mental illness is, as the name says, an illness.  Trump is a shiathead narcissist, who only loves seeing himself being praised and adored.  That isn't mental illness, that is a person with the mental capacity of a 5 year old, without the empathy, who is proud of the fact that he acts like a 5 year old.

A sociopath is someone that does have a mental illness.

Not sure why this thread had more than one post after the boo... initial comment.

After a number of allegedly noted professionals diagnosed him as a loony without having a single appointment with him, it's refreshing to see the former Pres. of the APA refuting those diagnoses without ever seeing the patient.

/ sweet FSM, psychiatry apparently has nothing resembling a code of ethics

Sorry, were you thinking of Obama again and just projecting like usual?

Sociopathy can be a form of mental illness.

Oh my. There's one I've never heard of. Never thought would exist.
 
2018-01-13 03:06:52 AM  
Saying that Trump has "mental illness," is a massive insult to those of us who have real mental illnesses.  I deal with severe depression and social anxiety, that would, without drugs, make my life nearly unliveable.  If I didn't have insurance, which Trump wants to take away, I wouldn't be able to afford to pay for them.  I wouldn't have a life, or even a chance of keeping a job.  So fark Trump, fark anyone who is stupid enough to think his Narcissism is mental illness, and not just him being a complete and utter asshole.  Mental illness is a real problem.  Trump doesn't have it, but he wants to take away help from those of us that do!

Has Eric Cartman done that, or is South Park still insisting on Douche/Turd Sandwich 2016??

Your trolling is weak, please at least try next time.

For a guy who's (quite responsibly) calling on his colleagues to stop arriving at premature conclusions about the President, this is the funniest shiat I've ever read:

"Now we have Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury," in which the president's own staff members question Mr. Trump's stability and cognitive ability. In response to early accounts of the book, the president tweeted in defense of his mental capacities that "actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.""

Straight from The Onion, surely.
