    Once again you described what was said about Al Gore and his claiming to invent the internet. You also are describing
    Hillary and Obama, also at the graduation speach Hillary in attacking Donald described Herself and deflected it.
    Doesn't get any sadder then that or the Psychiatric analysis deflecting their own grandeur and delusions that you can diagnose someone you never tested or had a formidable analyses through studying them in person without the regional or situational quirks or performance factors or demonization of your opponents tainting your view.
    And remember, you guys tried to push this guy on our country.

    Many people with personality disorders are a bit of this one and a bit of that one, and get multiple diagnoses on Axis II. Do you think the PD in itself makes him unfit to be President? If so, why? Are they considered mental "illnesses" in Axis II? If so, why don't they put them under Axis I where the rest of the mental illnesses are? I'm not a psychologist, but I've read plenty of psych evals on clients I worked with and I assumed Axis II was somehow different from Axis I.

    I do believe a person diagnosed with a PD is unfit to be POTUS.

    Axis I: are Mental Disorders
    Axis II: are Personality Disorders and Mental Retardation
    Axis III: Physical Conditions and Disorders
    Axis IV Psychosocial and Environmental Problems
    Axis V Global Assessment of Functioning

    "There are many definitions of mental disorder, none of which is both accurate and complete" This quote is followed with a long discussion on what is a mental disorder. It is a book well worth looking through if you are really interested in the topic.

    No. No one has examined him. End of story.

    I created this thread in February. It's now August and we're hearing from Republicans what was apparent to many -- Trump's GOP opponents and Democrats -- during the campaign. Now we've got this madman in the WH and have to wrangle out how to get him out of it.
    We're going to be talking about the 25th Amendment after Trump's AZ speech tonight.
