Psychiatrist warns Trump's mental state is rapidly deteriorating -- and he may be 'on the boundary of [View all]

psychosis and realityí

Look at the people who are winning nomination on the Republican side. Nazis are running for office as Republicans. There are candidates who take Trump as a role model and will be even more extreme than him. There have been elections where Republican candidates and officeholders who dared to criticize Trump have been punished by Republican voters. Itís almost like a refinement process. This happens in fascist societies. We saw this with Nazi Germany.

I truly believe that the elected Republican politicians are completely lost souls. They are like the characters in a zombie movie who keep their father in the basement because they donít really understand that he is a zombie. Heís not coming back. I really, truly think itís that bad. There a few Republicans who are trying to sound the alarm about Trump, but the Republican Party as a whole is like organized crime at this point, and Trump is the boss. Thereís absolutely no other conclusion you could draw.

Trumpís grandiosity is such that he actually believes he is an expert on everything. Based on his speeches and interviews, Trump is apparently the world authority on 25 different issues. This also speaks to a bigger problem, which is the death of expertise. For authoritarians and malignant narcissists like Trump an independent source of authority, whether itís the press, the bureaucracy or the experts, are threats to his authority. Trump leaves positions at the State Department unfilled because he doesnít want experts telling him what to do. He knows that he knows more than everybody else. Whatís really frightening is that he actually believes that he has this kind of papal infallibility.

The simplest explanation is that Donald Trump is experiencing substantial organic cognitive decline, but he hasnít reached the bottom of the hill yet. Heís fallen, letís say, 25 stories, but heís going to continue to deteriorate. Cognitive deterioration only goes in one direction. It doesnít stand still and it doesnít get better. No, Trump is not ready for the nursing home. But that doesnít mean heís capable of managing the White House. Once you factor in nuclear weapons the possibilities are truly horrific.
