Is anyone else worried about Trump's sanity?

I seriously am at this point. This is not hyperbole.

What he's doing is not normal.

I wonder if he's in the early stages of a nervous breakdown.

Fuck his enablers. Fuck Mike Pence. Trump is not fit for public office.

The HRC strategy team clearly intends to let him self-destruct in public. It may be our best hope of beating him.

One insane man with no power is meaningless in the big scheme of things. One insane man upon whom millions of Americans want to bestow the highest power and authority in the world is what is truly dangerous.

as long as he's either not Hillary, or doesn't have a (D) after his name.

He was right about one thing, though - he probably COULD stand in the middle of Times Square and shoot someone, and not lose some people's votes. Yes, they *are* that delusional and unhinged.

4. I've said before that I think he has early stage Alzheimer's.

I don't think he is clinically insane, but his behavior is aggressive, erratic and self-defeating. These are all signs of dementia. I bet the family is keeping the true degree of his disease a secret.

17. He, or his handlers.

These people lie and fabricate "reality" constantly. And unless the family raises alarm bells, doctors don't routinely check for dementia. Obviously their goal is to get him in the White House and then take over. And I don't trust Ivanka one little bit. I think she is the real puppet master over her father. Maybe this is her revenge for childhood abuse. After seeing him put his hands all over her, I do believe abuse happened. But she knows where the money is.

srsly, as dementia set in on my mom, she started saying somewhat bigoted things, tho she was never like that before. i used to say about her- she wouldnt say shit if she had a mouthful. that's why i grew up to be a good liberal.

i have heard others say the same thing. the paranoia gets to some.

34. This HAS to be the GOP hope, if not an outright plan. Trump isn't really running a campaign...

he's not raising money, spending money, staffing up. As another DUer noted, there are practically no republican office holders on sunday shows for trump. Trump doesn't want to be president (wants his VP to run things, if elected). GOP would much rather have Pence.

Remember...it's axiomatic that a republican can't win the primary and then also win the general. Trump quitting is a way around that.

32. I think he has MALIGNANT PERSONALITY

THE MALIGNANT PERSONALITY:

These people are mentally ill and extremely dangerous! The following precautions will help to protect you from the destructive acts of which they are capable. To recognize them, keep the following guidelines in mind:

(1) They are habitual liars. They seem incapable of either knowing or telling the truth about anything.

(2) They are egotistical to the point of narcissism. They really believe they are set apart from the rest of humanity by some special grace.

(3) They scapegoat; they are incapable of either having the insight or willingness to accept responsibility for anything they do. Whatever the problem, it is always someone else’s fault.

(4) They are remorselessly vindictive when thwarted or exposed.

(5) Genuine religious, moral, or other values play no part in their lives. They have no empathy for others and are capable of violence. Under older psychological terminology, they fall into the category of psychopath or sociopath, but unlike the typical psychopath, their behavior is masked by a superficial social facade.


He displays all of these tendancies as well!!!

I used to have a plot in mind for a novel that involved the POTUS going crazy, but this is even worse . . . a crazy person potentially being elected. It kind of means a good chunk of the population of this country is off its rocker.

36. Very much so. I'm a therapist and see many behaviors that lead me to come up with a lot of theories.

The professional side of me says you can't diagnose someone you have not assessed. The unprofessional side would say that he could have Narcissistic Personality disorder or other personality disorder - and perhaps Bipolar 2 disorder (due to his spending habits).

46. He's textbook Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder.

Damned straight he is not fit for public office. Especially the Oval Office. He must not be allowed to have his tiny hands on the nuclear button.

He gets bent out of shape when he's criticized by a Gold Star father, or by any of thousands of tweets that poke fun at him.

He's an incredibly thin-skinned manbaby. Which makes him incredibly dangerous if he were to have command of the nation's military, law enforcement, and nuclear arsenal.
