Ya'll know the rest of the story...

"Pulling out the standared(sic) Narcissistic Personality disorder definitions

The words of the ultimate narcissistic personality disorder, a disorder that is based on personal fear of failure (something Trump was steeped in from a young age).
Here is a brief synopsis of the symptoms of the disorder:
- Has an exaggerated sense of self-importance
- Has a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration
- Expects to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
- Exaggerates achievements and talents
- Is preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
- Believes they are superior and can only associate with equally special people
- Monopolizes conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior
- Expects special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations
- Takes advantage of others to get what they want
- Has an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
- Is envious of others and believe others envy them
- Behaves in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious
- Insists on having the best of everything for instance, the best car or office
- Becomes impatient or angry when they don't receive special treatment
- Has significant interpersonal problems and easily feel slighted
- Reacts with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make themselves appear superior
- Has difficulty regulating emotions and behavior
- Experiences major problems dealing with stress and adapting to change
- Feels depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection
- Has secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation

A long term symptom of the disorder is a chronic cognitive distortion. Consistent with firmly held beliefs about his specialness, the disordered will manifest a pattern of negative, all-or-nothing thought processes.
His inflated self-concept does not appear to be grounded within objective academic, employment, or interpersonal histories.
Additionally, he holds many negative expectations of others based on distorted beliefs about how individuals from various socioeconomic, educational, and demographic backgrounds think, feel, and behave. These beliefs lead to significant emotional dysregulation, poor distress tolerance, and interpersonal chaos.
He frequently struggles to see multiple perspectives on an issue and devalues others who are not able to see his perspective.

This tendency results in a vicious cycle of unrealistic goal-setting, feelings of failure, and low mood which often impairs his ability to function in his professional or personal life.

Eventually this cognitive dissonance gets overcome by his environment and the underlying fear of failure becomes the reality of actual failure.

Is this what we want for our country?"

1. Add that to the traits of a Sociopath (some similarities)

as well as traits of a sadist. In total we have one mental mess as POTUS.


Profile of the Sociopath
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.

Glibness and Superficial Charm

Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
Other Related Qualities:

Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
Conventional appearance
Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life
Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
Incapable of real human attachment to another
Unable to feel remorse or guilt
Extreme narcissism and grandiose
May state readily that their goal is to rule the world ****

****This last one is a nice ending to the long list.

2. I mean, the guy answers YES to every one of those. Must be a world record.

I'm surprised he hasn't been discovered to be a serial killer.......... not yet anyway.

3. I wouldn't want the task of having to go through his closets,

basement and attic, at least not alone.

If this isn't a clear case to remove him from office vai the 25th Amend I don't know what is.
