President Donald Trump has just completed his first week in the Oval Office and the reviews are in: he’s absolutely insane. Before Trump won the presidency there were numerous questions raised about his fitness for office, in particular about his mental stability. Now a top psychotherapist has weighed in on Trump’s behavior and their opinion is not flattering.
John D. Gartner formerly taught students at Johns Hopkins University Medical School and he offered his scathing views on Trump’s mental health:
Donald Trump is dangerously mentally ill and temperamentally incapable of being president.
Gartner went on to say that Trump has “malignant narcissism.” Furthermore, Gartner says his diagnosis would be agreed upon by every single one of his colleagues based on how Trump has acted in public:
We’ve seen enough public behavior by Donald Trump now that we can make this diagnosis indisputably.
The inability of the newly minted 45th President of the United States to tolerate any form of criticism is one hallmark of his mental illness. Trump has shown a penchant for being petty and spiteful against any individual who he perceives to have slandered or slighted him — even if it was not true.
The diagnosis of Trump is of little surprise to those paying attention, but Trump’s supporters will likely be unswayed. As has become the new fad amongst the Republican electorate any information which is not in line with their beliefs is considered “fake news.” Just like Trump’s personality.
