Trump Cracking Under Pressure

The big question posed after Donald Trump's bizarre and incoherent rant last night was is he having some sort of breakdown under the pressure?
The easy answer is no, he is just a massive bell end trying to deflect media attention away from his dubious links with Russia and poor decision making but docotrs have reached another conclusion, he has a mental illness.  
A group of mental health professionals have suggested that: 'Mr Trump is incapable, on psychiatric grounds, of serving as president' and put it down to his suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders puts the symptoms of NPL as: 'an exaggerated sense of self-importance, fantasies of success, power, brilliance or beauty, belief in being special, requiring excessive admiration, a sense of entitlement, selfish in taking advantage of others, lacking empathy, envious of others, arrogant, haughty, patronising or contemptuous and anyone
if a perosn can identify with at least five of the symptoms, they can be said to have the mental disorder. 
As he almost ticks every one of the boxes, the mental health doctors could have a very strong case but then that brings us to the thorny issue of, if Donald Trump is suffering from mental illness, can we still mock him?
Considering that his eye-shakingly bad decision making is down to a mental problem kinds of makes an excuse for him but as far as i am aware he has not had a diagnosis so it is okay to carry on saying it is just down to him being a World Class, Olympic sized cretin with dodgy financial links to Russia who is cracking under the Pressure of the spotlight. Oh, and an illiterate misogynist sex pest, racist and failed businessman, let's not forget those traits.

Those sound more like Obama's traits to me

Obama was many things but he was never as unstable a character as Trump. He was also respected up to a point which Trump will never be.

That may be true but I doubt your ability to be unbiased. You were one of those people that gave Obama a peace prize for being nothing but a black man that said the words you wanted to hear.

He didn't close the race gap in America. He choked our economic recovery. He expanded the use of drone attacks. He poured money down a toilet called renewable energy. He watched Russia take half of the Ukraine. He impugned all police because of the actions of 1%. He ordered our police to ignore immigration laws. He made the Justice dept into a political entity.

He deserves so much respect (can't express dripping sarcasm in text as I'm not a professional journalist).

I guess you missed all those posts on here saying that peace prize should be rescinded as he didn't deserve it. Oh well.

No, I remember that. There were a few times in 8 years when you called him out.

Trump hasn't actually taken any harmful actions yet. Just talk. Yet you are already pecking at him because you want to impose your communications preferences on him.

But in general you gave Obama a pass because you liked his empty words.

Does the sexually assaulting women not count as harmful actions he has taken?
I called out Obama when i needed to, Bush i called out more because of what he did in Iraq and Afghanistan and Trump because of his views, boasting of sexual abuse, his lies, his outrageous treatment of people who disagree with him and complete inappropriateness to be a World leader to name a few things.
