    You just brought up something important.
    The NewYork-Philly-Jersey personalities are
    from hostile environments where personalities are exaggerated and having a spine (fighting back) is a way of survival
    and sense of humor ribbing or even classic insult comedy Don Rickles style.
    You either get it by being around it or you act like a wrestling crowd who just saw
    ANDY Kaufman insult your favorite wrestler and it rubs you the wrong way.
    Insult is however coming the other way, so conflicts with personality is not something people should be concerned with, especially when it shapes people into the perfect specimen for the work that they do. Like needing a leader not bending over to special interest lining campaign pockets or foreign governments taking advantage of us in deals, like former administrations.

    The crucification of Trump on everything he does is indicative of the wimperization of America.
    We voted for him to say what's on his mind and the Liberals, who demand freedom of speech for everything anti-American, freak out with every phrase that emerges from Trump's mouth.
    Who really gives a fuck about the politically correct assholes who refused to move to Red States and vote Hillary into office.
    A bunch of sore losers.
    I'm actually waiting for a major city to be burnt to the ground.

    Yah eh is definitely a recipient of the signature statement, "OH YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE" many times I am sure, as to your OP line of thought Sigmund Freud would follow all of you lines of thought, and tell you that "Your obsession with Trumps Psyc Profile is directly related to your long hidden wish to screw your mother!!!

    There is no doubt in my mind that Trump suffers from a Narcissistic Personality Disorder (Coded: 301.81*):
    "Beginning by early adult life, grandiosity (fantasized or actual), 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 fit only for association with (or undersanding by) people or institutions of rarefied status
    • Need for excessive admiration
    • A sense of entitlement (patient unreasonably expects favorable treatment or autommatic granting of his 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 others envy the patient
    • Arrogance or haughtiness in attitude or behavior"
    Now, this is not the only Personality Disorder which fits what we see daily in the President's behavior and mannerism. For example, the Histrionic Personality Disorder (coded: 301.508*).

    "beginning by early adult life, emotional excess and attention-seeking behaviors are present in a variety of situations and shown by at least five of these:
    • Discomfort with situations in which the patient is not the center of attention
    • Relationships which are frequently fraught with inappropriately seductive or sexually provocative behavior
    • Expression of emotions that is shallow and rapidly shifting
    • Frequent focusing of attention on self through use of physical appearance
    • Speech that is vague and lacks detail
    • Overly dramatic expression of emotion
    • Easy suggestibility (patient is easily influenced by opinions of other people or by circumstances)
    • Belief that relationships are molre intimate than they really are."
    Note: Some may think I made these up because they fit nicely into what we have seen and experienced since getting to "know" Trump from a distance. In fact the two mental illnesses (*) are copied from DSM-IV Made Easy (The Clinicians's Guide to Diagnosis) written in 1994.

    For those curious it gives a quick intro into the five Axis Diagnosis and the principles used by the clinician in determining a diagnosis. Thus, the two Personality Disorders need to be ruled out by a medical professional.

    You described Clinton, Schumer, Pelosi, so when ya gonna describe someone other then 4 out of the 6 billion people who aren't slackers?
    Now describe the personality trait that says someone who claims mocking disabilities is wrong should turn around and do just that, bash, demonize and mock someone they claim is disabled? BUSTED!

    XXXX -- Mod Edit -- Not CDZ compliant. Buy the book, and put you biases aside as you read through the book; it is not esoteric, but not so general it can't pinpoint people you know and wondered about]

    You'll notice, if you read and comprehend my comment in the final paragraph, that Trump's behavior and what history we have on his background are discernible in at least five of the bullet points in both illnesses. If his background has been accurately described, and not "fake news", odds are your Messiah is one very sick puppy, and unfit to be POTUS.
