    Donald Trump’s opponents have been wondering what psychological disorders might explain the Republican presidential nominee’s erratic behavior — but Dr. Drew Pinsky is more curious about why his supporters are willing to overlook those warning signs.

    The physician and media personality appeared Monday night on CNN, where he told Don Lemon that Trump does not fit the stringent legal definition for insanity — but he does show signs of multiple mental illnesses.

    “There’s two definitions of sanity, one is legal definition, and that is somebody who is so out of it they don’t know the difference between right and wrong,” Pinsky told CNN’s Don Lemon. “That is a very high standard for insanity, (and) very few people meet that standard. When you’re legally insane, you’re really not functioning. Clinically, medically, usually when we talk about insanity, we mean psychotic, hearing voices, hallucinations.”

    Joe Scarborough is concerned about Donald Trump's 'mental well-being'
    http://www.theweek.com/speedreads/640456/joe-scarborough-concerned-about-donald-trumps-mental-wellbeing

    In the decade he's known Donald Trump, Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough said he's "never seen him act like this before." "It's unhinged, it's not the Donald Trump I've known for over a decade," Scarborough said on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday. "I never have seen anything remotely resembling this type of behavior from a guy who I've known and liked and called a friend."

    Scarborough is far from the only one concerned about the Republican presidential nominee either. In recent days, Scarborough said he's been getting calls from "Republicans, from officials, from people that the media would call 'right-wing bloggers'" asking about Trump's mental health. "It's not like there [were] talking points that were shot out by the DNC or by anybody else," Scarborough said. "Everybody was talking about his mental health yesterday. Everybody was calling me, saying, 'What's happening to him? What is wrong with him?'"

    Trump's Mental State Is Becoming a Campaign Talking Point

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-s-mental-state-becoming-campaign-talking-point-n621556

    As Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's verbal gaffes have mounted and his penchant for lashing out at his political opponents has continued to escalate, it's become in vogue for critics to earnestly raise questions about Trump's temperament and his mental stability.

    Terms like "narcissist" and "sociopath" have been attached to his name as routinely as Trump attaches that name to his buildings. Many of his GOP allies have been publicly apoplectic about the unorthodox (some have argued virtually non-existent) campaign, contradictory statements regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump's critical remarks about the Muslim-American parents of a slain Iraq War hero.

    The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson even wrote a column this week asking: "Is Donald Trump just plain crazy?"


    Oh, great. We have a madman running for the US Presidency. And now psychiatrists are also wondering about the sanity of Trump's supporters. Or at the very least their intelligence. Doesn't surprise me a bit, about Trump and his supporters, both.

    I put that Robinson article in another new thread: "Eugene Robinson: Trump’s supreme lack of presidential fitness"

    Those are the same serious disorders suffered by the Wicked Witch of Wall Street especially the sense of entitlement disorder, that is Hillary's most notable trait.

    Trump supporters feel that they are victims.
    They want a strong man to save them
    so falling for Trump's BullShit was inevitable.

    Hope it didn't take you too long to piece together this little picture presentation because all of the same things can be said about Crooked Hillary.

    I worked for 8 years with the elderly. Both Trump (70yo) and Clinton (69) exhibit symptoms of early onset dementia. Clinton has been worse since she fell and hit her head in 2012. Trump obviously has OCD.

    The person closest to Hillary has already stated Hillary is often confused, especially after her nap:

    Those who are mentally ill or suffer from confusion should not be in charge of launching nuclear weapons.

    Did it take long to find evidence of Trump's narcissism? You're joking, right?

    I think his supporters fall into two categories and a mix thereof.

    On the one hand, you have conservatives who know it or not that they are a dying breed wanting terribly to maintain a conservative court into the next generation or two. They'd vote for anything not Democrat, consequences be damned

    Republican Alien For President -- Slogan: At least it's not Hillary

    Mixed in with them are the star-struck. They can't see the actual person even when in person. I experienced that first hand because my last partner of 10 years was a TV star whose own family didn't know him, except for his mom, she was cool. But the siblings? forgettaboutit. So bizarre to watch all that. They had no idea who he was. One was completely jealous and mean as fuck. Another saw him not as a brother but as a fan. I had to spend months with that one after his death to introduce him. Because the sibling had no idea who he was, having always put him on this pedestal.

    So when Trump says he could shoot someone and not lose a fan, I understand that completely. I don't relate to it not one bit, but I've seen it. And this is what con men rely on, that people believe what they want to believe even when their eyes show otherwise. And this is nothing new to society. We've seen this before. That's not just the sun rising and falling. That's a god being drawn by chariot across the sky.

    The star-struck believe the deception. Instead of seeing what's there, they project what they want to see and all the con man needs is just a few props.

    They also should not be allowed to vote in any elections meaning all the Hillary supporters.icon_cool.gif
