    Below copied from my copy of the DSM-IV, made easy: The Clinician's Guide to Diagnosis, by Dr, James Morrison (pg. 461)

    GENERAL CRITERIA FOR PERSONALITY DISORDERS:

    A lasting pattern of behavior and inner experience that markedly deviates from norms of the patient's culture; The pattern is manifested in at least two of these areas:
    • Affect (appropriateness, intensity, lability, and range of emotions
    • Cognition (how the patient perceives and interprets self, others and events)
    • Impulse control
    • Interpersonal functioning.
      • This pattern is fixed and effects many personal and social situations
      • This stable pattern has lasted a long time with roots in adolescence or young adulthood
      • The pattern isn't explained by another medical disorder
      • It isn't caused by a general medical condition or by the use of substances, including medications
    ***Cluster A:

    Paranoid: These people are suspicious and quick to take offense. They often have few confidants and may read hidden meanings into innocent remarks.

    Cluster B:

    Antisocial: as adults they may default on debts, or otherwise show irresponsibility; act recklessly or impulsively; and show no remorse for their behavior.

    Histrionic:

    Overly emotional, vague and attention-seeking; needing constant reassurance, self centered and sexually seductive.

    Narcissistic: These people are self important and often preoccupied with envy, fantasies, or ruminations about the uniqueness of their own problems. Their sense of entitlement and lack of empathy may cause them to take advantage of others. The vigorously reject criticism, and need constant attention and admiration.

    Cluster C:

    Dependent:

    These people need the approval of other so much that they have trouble making independent decisions, or starting projects; they may even agree with others whom they know to be wrong. They fear abandonment, feel helpless when they are alone, and are miserable when relationships end. The are easily hurt by criticism and will even volunteer for unpleasant tasks to gain the favor of others.

    Consider these are very general and not all bullet points will apply to The Donald, but many do. Focus now on the more comprehensive discussion on Narcissistic Personality Disorder: 301.81 (pg 485)

    Beginning by early adult life, grandiosity (real or fantasized), lack of empathy, and need for admiration are present in a variety of situations and shown by at least five of these:
    • A grandiose sense of self importance (patient exaggerates own abilities and accomplishments)
    • Preoccupation with fantasies of beauty, brilliance, ideal love, power, or limitless success
    • Belief that personal uniqueness renders the patient for only associations with (or understanding by) people or institutions of rarefied status
    • Need for excessive admiration
    • A sense of entitlement (patient unreasonably expects favorable treatment or automatic granting of his own wishes
    • Exploitation of others to achieve personal goals
    • Lack of empathy (patient does not recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others)
    • Frequent envy of others or belief that others envy patient
    • Arrogance or haughtiness in attitude or behavior
    Too many of these bullet points reflect the behavior of Donald Trump to be dismissed. The question, however, is this: is he qualified to be or remain The Most Powerful person in the world?

    You prefer division to unity, insults to respect, childishness to responsibility and ineptitude to competence?

    Well then when you signed up for Trump, you got your wish.

    I am tired of decades of surface sweetness masking a undermining of the US and its interests, and its people. I am tired of politicians saying one thing, and doing th e opposite. I am tired of politicians who lie out of both sides of their mouth while enriching themselves and their cronies, while screwing over the middle class.

    You can choose to continue with that sort of bullshit, but i voted for trump because i am tired of the middle class being lied to, and screwed over by the billionaires who want to turn us back into serfs.

    You may be stupid and ignorant of history. But I am not.

    The types of comments he is making lately clearly show he is unfit. Not only the ones about sending people back, but the ones about the media, and constantly contradicting things he has been recorded as saying.
