Trump Off The Rails
Evidence of a breakdown?
By Ray Cunneff
Questions about Donald Trump's mental/emotional stability have swirled around the man long before he became president. The label of "narcissistic sociopath" has dogged him even before he announced his candidacy, ample evidence in full display of his grandiosity, paranoia, vindictiveness, obsessiveness and delusion.
He regularly lashes out at anyone who dares criticize him and has proven to be a compulsive liar. And Trump's seemingly uncontrollable early-morning twitter-storms, that his aides and lawyers insist have placed him in ever-greater legal jeopardy, have become increasingly unhinged.
And now, the American people are greeted with the specter, as described by some of Trump's own advisers, of a prowling, hateful old man screaming at any television inside the White House that carries news about the Russian or obstruction of justice investigations, ranting that he a victim of a conspiracy.
From the Associated Press:
"Trump advisers and confidants describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit — and potentially end — his presidency. Some of his ire is aimed at [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein and investigative special counsel Robert Mueller, both of whom the president believes are biased against him, associates say. "
Even Trump supporters have begun to openly question the president's state of mind while both allies and adversaries publicly mock him. Psychologists worry that someone with Trump's apparent psychopathology will not only bristle at criticism, it can go absolutely berserk over humiliation.
That, combined with stress, can create a very dangerous scenario for the coming days and weeks.
