Trump’s Press Conference, Annotated and Corrected

Interesting essay samples and examples on:

Please, I implore you and all that read this blog to change the narrative on this election. It’s not about the next insane thing the GOP candidate has done or whether or not his policies can make America “great again.” The only thing we all need to be talking about now is that one of the candidates running for President of the United States has serious mental health issues that make him unfit for any political office, let alone POTUS.

That’s it. Plain and simple.

There are many places to find the info. Below is from

The latest, fifth, edition (2013) of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) has done an excellent job of revamping the definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder by introducing a dimensional description of the disorder.criteria.

The narcissist …

Feels grandiose and self-important (e.g., exaggerates accomplishments, talents, skills, contacts, and personality traits to the point of lying, demands to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequaled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion

Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions)

Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation – or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (Narcissistic Supply)

Feels entitled.

Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her unreasonable expectations for special and favorable priority treatment

Is “interpersonally exploitative,” i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends

Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with, acknowledge, or accept the feelings, needs, preferences, priorities, and choices of others

Constantly envious of others and seeks to hurt or destroy the objects of his or her frustration.

Suffers from persecutory (paranoid) delusions as he or she believes that they feel the same about him or her and are likely to act similarly

Behaves arrogantly and haughtily.

Feels superior, omnipotent, omniscient, invincible, immune, “above the law,” and omnipresent (magical thinking).

Rages when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted by people he or she considers inferior to him or her and unworthy

There really is nothing more we need to say.
Just help change the narrative.

The GOP candidate is not a bad candidate, or a least worse candidate, or whatever else keeps being said.

He is mentally unfit for the office.
For many reasons.
