    Re: I AM DONALD TRUMP -- the real Unknown Warrior

    Allen Frances, MD, is professor emeritus of psychiatry at Duke University and the creator of the diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder. That condition has been in the news frequently, as many have suggested that President Trump may be so afflicted. In his new book, Twilight of American Sanity, Frances suggests it's not Trump who is crazy. It is us.

    Well, Trump is absolutely a world-class narcissist. He has every criteria met except for two. In addition to having the features of being grandiose, unempathic, self-involved, selfish, all the things that go into being Trump, you have to have distress or impairment, significant distress or impairment.

    Trump is a man who causes immense distress in others, but doesn't seem to experience it very much himself. Although he's created tremendous impairment for our country and for his business colleagues, he, himself, has been very well rewarded in politics and also in business for being a narcissist. I think that it's reckless for people to attribute the damage he's causing to mental illness. He's much more bad than mad.

    This sort of so called psychiatry is just Fake .
    No standards are set or worked with .
    All the MSM does is to find one opinion extremist and use him/ her as clickbait .

    In essence it is just an 'academic' swearing , but using sentences and longer words than , say , limited IQ people like Robert de Niro or Katy Perry .

    It is the equivalent of taking one Democrat voter , asking for their party preference and using one biased result to support a wider platform .

    FAKE NEWS .
    And intellectually totally dishonest .

    You don't bother reading links by other members, do you. That was an interview, not a news article.

    Here's one for you...about you...and Laforest;
    7. The Dunning-Kruger Effect:

    Humans Often Overestimate Their Political Expertise
    Some who support Donald Trump are under-informed or misinformed about the issues at hand. When Trump tells them that crime is skyrocketing in the United States, or that the economy is the worst it’s ever been, they simply take his word for it.

    The Dunning-Kruger effect explains that the problem isn’t just that they are misinformed; it’s that they are completely unaware that they are misinformed, which creates a double burden. Studies have shown that people who lack expertise in some area of knowledge often have a cognitive bias that prevents them from realizing that they lack expertise. As psychologist David Dunning puts it in an op-ed for Politico, “The knowledge and intelligence that are required to be good at a task are often the same qualities needed to recognize that one is not good at that task — and if one lacks such knowledge and intelligence, one remains ignorant that one is not good at the task. This includes political judgment.” These people cannot be reached because they mistakenly believe they are the ones who should be reaching others.

    Hey, it was you who brought up narcissism as it applies to tRump. You (channeling Laforest) said the label didn't apply to tRump. You've also gone on in complaining that Stern wasn't an expert, which I never claimed was the case. What I said is that Stern was a good friend of tRump's over the last 30 years or so, and had intimate knowledge of him, and had also interviewed him on several occasions.

    In order to satisfy your apparent need for expert analysis, I've invoked the person responsible for defining what NPD is and have shown that in his expert opinion tRump is indeed a world class narcissist though probably does not qualify as NPD.

    Your very amateur opinion has thus been thoroughly refuted, and you're incapable of seeing that, thus Dunning-Kreuger.

    Look , the last thing I wish is to be accused of harassing old people .

    You have been unlucky enough to contract Trump Derangement Syndrome and we would need a few one - to - one sessions before I could start to normalise you .

    I am gong to move on to greater things than this after this post but I will leave you two unlucky guys with this thought :-

    I could not care if The Donald is a secret contortionist and has to kiss every part of his body every day before even getting out of bed .

    Within reason , the greatest US President in modern history is forgiven any foibles---and being a narcissist is not even in my list of 100 things I would prefer not to see .

    Come on .
    Concentrate on glass half full ( successes ) rather than old man -itis where it is half glass empty almost all of the time .

    You will never get a President as great as this one .
    So join in the fun and sun .And don't die miserable .

    You've no idea how relieved I am to hear that, I was starting to worry. That field I mentioned says sixty, for instance. I'm sure it must be mistaken.

    It's kind of funny - most of Laforest's piece is nothing more than an opinionated rant that is contradictory. tRump is a corporatist capitalist on steroids, which Laforest seems to be against out one side of his mouth. Ironically, the candidate that addresses Laforest's concerns most positively is Bernie Sanders, not Donald tRump. Neither Raffy or Laforest would know that due to the Dunning-Kruegar issue.

    I think that I would enjoy seeing him show up to testify. It could be the greatest Pig-Picking of all time.
