3. The really frightening part of this is the US has no process in which to evaluate the mental

condition of candidates. It's all left to the US voters (and Russians). IMO it leaves the door open for someone even far worse than tRump to become president ... or other high offices.

53. There was one VP candidate: Thomas Eagelton, McGovern's original pick in 1972.

He failed to reveal 3 hospitalizations for mental issues in 1972 and was dropped from the ticket after McGovern talked with his psychiatrists.

That is interesting because it is also a figure of strong authority. It would even then not be easy to get rid of him, but it would be a lot easier than it is now.

If he were manager of a Burger King,, nope.. gone in a couple weeks or months...

37. If the CEO of your company behaved in public even ONCE...

The way he conducts himself on a continual, minute-by-minute basis, your board of directors would hold an emergency meeting and immediately terminate him. They wouldn't even let him clean out his desk or take his family pictures. Security would march him out the front door, and they might throw his shit in a box and mail it to him four weeks later.

26. Narcissistic personality disorder with deteriorating cognitive abilities

The first part means he doesn't think he needs help. The second part means help would only be effective in limited ways. I think our only hope is that he has some kind of catastrophic medical event (heart attack or stroke) that ends his Presidency.

28. Mental illness is the only reasonable explanation for some of his lies.

Like going in front of our troops and telling them he gave them a 10% raise. There is just simply no other explanation for telling such a ridiculous lie. When lies just fly uncontrollably from someone's mouth like that what else would explain it? Such lies make it perfectly obvious that he needs to be escorted out of the White House for reason of mental instability alone, much less all of his criminal behavior and his sheer incompetence at his job. Yet the Republicans in Congress continue to let this man run around with access to the nuclear codes.

36. He has an overwhelming and uncontrollable need for immediate adoration from a crowd.

And he'll say anything to get it.

He doesn't care how they feel later when they find out there's no raise - or no money going to the vets from the fundraiser, or no tax relief for the middle class, or all the other things that he lies about that are so easily revealed as lies.

I think that is still in the category of personality disorder, although a really severe one. Similarly, he has no empathy, is cruel and malicious, suggestion he is a sociopath - still 'just' a personality disorder.

What crosses the line, I think, is relaying 'facts' that apparently are movies he has watched. If he doesn't know the difference, that is either psychosis or (more likely) dementia. That and his confusion and disordered speech.

For years, they've been working on Republicans in state legislatures and governorships to declare a Constitutional Convention to do that very thing.

As flawed as the current document is, I guarantee you will like their new revised version even less.

40. a bad case of sex on the wrong brain, mixing reproductive urges with mathematics and logic

where numbers are done it stimulates greed - more bigger faster.....

where logic is done sex energy wants finality, premature conclusion, certainty.

most right handed people have some sowb because 90% of the population is right handed and after humans began delaying the age of reproduction a few thousand years ago (for some) most learned sex with the sword and hammer hand, especially the males.

nothing is certain and the need for it creates anxiety and fear. humans use order, control, religion, simplification, etc to reduce uncertainty and create certainty, such as with binary value systems - yes no, right wrong, black white, etc resulting in racism, nationalism, etc. authoritarianism is measured with the uncertainty avoidance index, or UAI. the irrational need for certainty is a defining characteristic of authoritarianism.

women have less sowb in general due mainly to anatomical differences and the disparity causes men to view women as sources of uncertainty to be controlled, maybe even feared, resulting in institutionalized misogyny and paternalism, etc

trump got it bad and there might be a genetic aspect. he may have reached a point of paralyzing fear and learned to create certainty on his own as opposed to getting it from religion, etc. in that scenario he makes up a lie or triggers emotion with racism for eg, and logic has learned to automatically rationalize it by connecting to the starved right side, releasing sex energy that finally escapes to the pleasure centers.

certainty is the currency of power. his followers have bad cases of sowb too. his ability to simplify and reduce the complex and infinite helps them control the uncertainty, rationalize the certainty, and ease the fear. chaos makes him more attractive to him.

that's the secret of authoritarian power.

41. unfortunately you're preaching to the choir.

his multiple pathologies have been on display since well before the election. he's getting worse.

this is one thing that gets me when people talk about impeachment. how he's going to play the victim and blah blah - how would that be any different from what he's been doing all along? whenever we think he could not possibly sink any lower he does.

but i'm hopeful today, because i believe that inexorably and unavoidably we are headed for impeachment. that is where the LAW is leading us. we can then hope that there are a handful of republicans who believe in the constitution.

In fact, he should not even be allowed to run in the next election due to his instability and madness. I would take that one step further and say that he should be removed immediately as he is a clear and present danger to the security and health of this nation and the world. He is not fit to be in office.
